Marilyn started looking after our little girl when she was one years old. It was instantly apparent that Marilyn not only loved looking after children but she is also very qualified. Marilyn works with her daughter and we liked the variation this provides.

Our daughter was so happy with Marilyn and really came on in her development during her time with her. We were also reassured of her progress through the daily diaries that often came with pictures. Something we can treasure forever. Marilyn also talked to us regularly about her development and milestones and did not flinch at supporting when potty training time approached.

I have never seen Marilyn look flustered and have often been in awe of this given the nature of childminding. We were very sad to leave Marilyn due to a change in our circumstances but wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for someone who genuinely loves what she does with years of experience.

Marilyn has been our childminder since my daughter was 6 weeks old, she is now nearly 9.
We do not see Marilyn as our childminder, more a part of our family and couldnt be without her. (I often joke with Marilyn that she will have my little moo until her late 20's)

Marilyn engages with the children, taking them out to parks, groups, trips out, painting, playtime - the highlight of my day was reading the daily diary and the progress reports I would get with pictures. These were excellent as it meant milestones were being captured, I wasnt missing out.
You could tell on pick up your child had a good day, were well stimulated and cared for.

My daughter now goes to Marilyn for afterschool hours, if Marilyn is on holiday always asks - when will Marilyn be picking me up - another excellent sign.

Marilyn has also been a great source to help and support offering advice; it was Marilyn that noticed my daughter is very sensitive to loud noises and impromptu situations. Her vast experience helped guide us on how best to manage and work with our daughter.

Quite Simply Put - Marilyn is FANTASTIC.

Before finding Marilyn, we had a bad experience with another childminder, so making the decision in choosing another childminder was an extremely daunting prospect. However, Marilyn made it so easy and proved time and time again that we definitely chose right!

Marilyn is a time proven professional in all aspects of childcare. She is OFSTED registered 'Outstanding' consistently and was always great at feeding back progress in observations and used to send photographs of activities the kids had been doing during the day.

The kids loved marilyn and her family. They were treated as an extended member of their home and always had plenty to do whilst in Marilyn's care.
They used to go out many times a week to play centres and in the summer would go on day trips to local places of interest.

The children always responded well to Marilyn's firm but fair approach and still to this day even having moved onto school, talk about marilyn and when they can visit again.

I cannot recommend her more highly!
