When I decided to go back to work, my little one went through 2 childminders and a nursery and was not happy and felt slightly scared and then along came Patty, she was like a god sent!

She looked after my son for 2 and half years and he loved every minute of it, he is now due to start school in September so sadly leaving Patty! you can see the love and dedication she has for what she does and for the kids under her care. She goes the extra mile constantly to ensure the kids are happy and well looked after.

She prepares lovely homemade meals and snacks for the kids, plans a day full of activities to nurture their learning and growth. We have been extremely lucky to come across Patty, she gives that peace of mind a working mother needs when leaving their child with someone else. I am extremely grateful for everything she has done for my little one and we will miss her loads!

Thank you ❤️

Patty cares for my 7months old baby and he is now 13 months, Patty is very caring, patience, understanding, she treats the children individually but equally. She is very passionate about the children and pays attention to every child needs. she would send pictures which reassures me a lot because my baby can cry for England. I would recommend her to everyone, I wouldn’t swap Patty for 20 childminders put together. Thank you so much

Thank you❤️

I am so pleased I chose Patty to child-mind my son! Her and her assistant Ola are amazing with my son. He has been there just over a year now and I've seen so much improvement in his language, motor skills and development in general. Patty keeps me updated throughout the day by sending pictures and videos of the activities they are doing and as this is the first time using a childminder it definitely puts my mind at ease. He is always smiling when he is there and has never not wanted to go! It is lovely to see the bond my son has with the both of them. Patty is also very flexible and has helped me in many ways when facing difficulty as a single parent which I truly appreciate. I couldn't recommend her enough!!

Thank you Sam! ❤️

We had from bad to terrible experience in the past with few chilminders and were very worried for our son as either he used to cry every time we left him or was not getting to do enough activities . This hasn't been a case since we met Patty. He loves her to the bits and so does she. Our son asks for her even when it's weekend which makes us feel very relaxed and jealous at the same time ?. She is very energatic and full of ideas when it comes to doing various age appropriate activities. She's always out and about with kids and making sure they're learning something whilst having fun.

She's very particular and loyal. She has moved to a different area which is approximately 40 mins drive from us. We were petrified with the thought of finding a new place for our son. Having such an attachment with our son she offered to pick and drop him off, which was the biggest relief and quite comforting. Hats off to her dedication and love towards the kids.

I can write a whole book on how good she is towards kids but I think I'll stop here
