Lauren has looked after my year four son after school for the last seven months. During the whole of this time, her care has been excellent. She is very experienced, conscientious and reliable. Her communication is also excellent.
Strongly recommended.

by about Lauren on 20/06/2019

Lauren cared for and nurtured my daughter from the age of 20 months until she 3 years old. In that time, Lauren taught her how to recognise numbers, encouraged her to write /mark make and recognise her name, offering new and exciting learning opportunities each day. Lauren is very caring towards the children in her care and this is evident in the fact that my daughter spoke about her most weekends! She built up a trust and a bond with her that gave me total peace of mind each morning, when I dropped my daughter off. Even on the days that my daughter was tired or a bit grumpy, Lauren’s calm and empathetic approach quickly diffused her tantrum, diverting her attention onto something else. Each day, Lauren provided healthy and nutritious meals, encouraging my daughter to try new foods. She exposed her to a wide range of learning opportunities outside the home such as singing groups, playgroups and day trips out. I honestly cannot recommend Lauren highly enough as a child care provider and an educator!

Our little one has been with Lauren for almost two years. It’s now time for him to move on to the next stage. Lauren has done a wonderful job as his childminder and we couldn’t recommend her more highly. Lauren is caring, enthusiastic, and reliable. She is professional but flexible and understanding of our needs. She communicates well with us and we have a clear idea of the children’s activities and meals every day. Our little one will miss her a lot but our children have become good friends.

Lauren is a fantastic childminder who provides a safe clean and caring environment for children and fun activities and day trips. I received updates and photos through the day and Lauren always had time to give advice at the end of the day. My son was with Lauren over the summer and his behaviour improved hugely whilst there and the one on one work she does has helped in getting him ready for school. I would highly recommend Lauren as a childminder I only wish I'd found her sooner !

Lauren looked after my daughter and I can not recommend Lauren highly enough. An excellent communicator, I felt in touch with what my daughter was doing and eating all day via messages and sometimes pictures which were lovely. Lauren offers a range of activities at home and also out of the house such as play groups and outings to keep the little ones entertained. Lauren has two wonderful little children who my daughter loved playing with. My daughter has become close friends with Lauren's daughter. Professional, enthusiastic caring, reliable.
Ticks all the boxes.
