Where do I begin....
Lesley has not just been a child minder to my son, but a counsellor, support network, rock...this beautiful lady has one of the biggest hearts I have ever come across and I am so so blessed to have had Lesley in our lives. I came to Lesley when I was looking for a full time place for my then 1 year old, from the first visit I felt happy and comfortable with leaving my son there...he took very well to Lesley instantly...the settling in sessions where great...I didn’t know what to do with all the time I had then gained!!...from then I have gone through, redundancy, two house moves, loosing my mum, splitting with my partner and relocating...Lesley has been our rock through everything and has supported us way above her job role intended...from the late pick ups to the early drop offs, the tears and the laughter, my son loves the whole family and is welcomed warmly everyday! Through it all, Lesley has had the best interest of my son and made sure he is happy and loved by her family and the other children. unfortunately we are relocating and we are having to say good bye, but our loss would most defo be our replacements gain!...thank you for absolutely everything you have done for my son and I, you are the best in the field, without a doubt!! Jack and I are going to miss you all terribly! Love Hannah xx

Lesley has been looking after our children (3 and 1) since the older one was 7 months. She immediately gained our confidence and trust as we could see that our little baby was happy to stay and be with her.

The atmosphere in Lesley’s house is always welcoming and homely. The toys are ready and cuddles are plenty when we get there early in the morning. It is so much easier to go to work knowing that the boys are in a place where they enjoy being and where they really are treated as individuals.

Lesley takes the children out to activities every day but they also get quiet time when they need it as well as playtime inside and in the garden. They have friends and know all of Lesley’s family. It is nice that they learn to socialise with different people as well as being polite and friendly.

I feel very lucky that we have Lesley as our childminder as she is not only a very warm and kind person but she also has been amazingly flexible with our changing needs.

Lesley is someone who enjoys her job and truly cares about the children that she looks after and we recommend her without any hesitation.
