Rachel has been an excellent Childminder for our 2 year old. She communicates well with parents, has good advice about the changing stages of a baby into a toddler. She takes them to the park regularly, has a lovely outside area for the warmer months, and is very accommodating for any specific needs required.

Thanks Tim !

We're so pleased with the care Rachel gives our son. Rachel has supported him in learning many skills - he was so proud of himself the day he learned to put on his shoes by himself! Our son has enjoyed the wide variety of activities and experiences that Rachel has provided, from growing courgettes to baking cakes and frequently exploring the nearby park and woods. Rachel is great at keeping us up to date with details of each day. I would highly recommend Rachel.

Thanks Vicky,
That's lovely to hear . Yes Alfie really enjoys learning new skills !! Xx

Rachel has looked after my children for six years, caring for them as babies and preschoolers, then picking them up after school. She unfailingly provides gentle, appropriate care. The kids have loved going to her and developed a genuine attachment to her. We are now moving house and I wish we could take her with us! Her communication with us as parents is always friendly and clear, and we trust her to deal with any problems that arise.
