About Me

I live with my husband, son (23), Molly the cat, Cooper ( a young spaniel cross) and a budgie called Maisie. We have a house with a large garden in Weybridge within walking distance of the main line station. I have been childminding for 16 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 the National Trust parks and this enables us to visit rural areas

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Hazel C. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

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.

Professionalism

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.

Communication

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.

Child Development

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.

Meals

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.

Hazel is a childminder that does childminding because she loves children, not for the money. This is very apparent in the way she is with my son and how happy he is going there every morning!

Hazel has helped so much with his development, it seems like they are doing different things every day, whether in the house or going on outings. My son has blossomed in her care! His manners are outstanding and I am always being told by friends and strangers alike that he is well behaved, this is mainly thanks to Hazel.

Hazel is extremely flexible and understanding of family needs and has just been amazing to our family over the last few months (with me having number 2). Nothing has been to much for her to do!!

I am sadly having to take my son out of Hazel's care, but am readily available for any feedback you may want further (just ask Hazel for my contact details).

Thank you Hazel for all you have done up until now! We would not have been able to have done it without you!!
