I live with my husband, son (26) and Cooper ( a cocker spaniel). We have a house with a large garden in Weybridge within walking distance of the main line station. I have been childminding for 19 years and find my job as rewarding now as I did when I started. The children in my care enjoy a range of activities inside and out. We have craft and messy play, reading and story time and play counting games. The children also enjoy cooking and help where they can with the preparation of meals. I have a large variety of outdoor equipment for the children but we also go out to the park or woodland areas. I have passes/memberships for RHS, Painshill and The Hawk Conservancy.

Our son was with Hazel from aged 1 - 3 years old. He absolutely loved Hazel's animals and her massive garden and the lovely trips out for walks and further a field to the likes of zoo's and sea life centres and even to the cinema and boat trips! From my point of view Hazel was immensely flexible regarding drop-off and collection times and provided wholesome and nutritional meals and snacks throughout the day. I never worried or had any concerns about my son's wellbeing, health and safety in Hazel's care. I would recommend Hazel's childcare service for anyone who prefers a personalised and home setting environment their child.
We have two precious daughters. Hazel has looked after one daughter since she was 13 months and the other from 12 months' old. Hazel is everything that a parent could hope for in a child-minder. We are delighted with how our daughters have developed in all areas under Hazel’s care. We would recommend Hazel’s services without hesitation to anyone.
Hazel is simply excellent at what she does. She carries out her job with professionalism and kindness. She is very well organised and incredibly reliable – even sharing her holiday calendar for the entire year in advance.
Nothing is ever too much for her and she frequently goes the extra mile. This is a blessing for both the parents and the children.
Hazel maintains a written record of each child’s day and diligently records details of meals, naps, outings and anything else of note. Hazel also takes the time to speak to parents at drop off and collection to ensure that they are always fully informed of their child’s progress.
We are delighted with how our daughters have developed in all areas under Hazel’s care. They have both benefited from her decades of experience as a child minder. Hazel follows a curriculum while still remaining attentive to the individual needs of each child.
Activities and Outings
The children complete a wide variety of activities on a daily basis. They walk the dog, play on the equipment in the garden, make crafts, cook and go to local places of interest such as Wisley Gardens, Painshill or Claremont, to name but a few. During the year, Hazel takes the children on special trips such as Sea-Life, Longleat and the Hawk Conservancy. They return inspired and educated.
Hazel is an excellent cook and the variety of the children’s menu is truly amazing. The food Hazel prepares is nutritious and healthy as are the snacks which the children are given.
Hazel will not disappoint as a child-minder.
