My son first started with Annette, Tony and Katie at their lovely setting just after his first birthday when I went back to work after my maternity leave. I was understandably a little nervous as the whole system was new to me, however Annette put me at such ease from day one and I’ve never doubted my choice in childminders.

The setting is a lovely home from home environment, providing plenty of indoor and outdoor space for my child. Every few weeks there’s an updated theme from which the children focus their learning, from Christmas to spring, dinosaurs to cafes, and the children often to related craft and baking activities.

My son has shown unbelievable development all round, he speech and understanding has progressed massively, as well as his general manors and confidence around other children and adults.

Annette and Tony have had no issues with my son napping or eating well at their home, we’ve never had any problems at all on either of these fronts. They provide high quality meals, and have the children all eat together in a family style environment, which is just lovely to see.

I receive daily photos and updates on what the children are doing so I’m always kept in the loop and have no doubt that my son is loving every moment!

I’m currently on maternity leave no 2 so my son is back with me for the next year, however I will have no hesitation sending both of my children back to this lovely setting when I return to work again!

Our Son has been at Annette and Tony's for 4 years this September.

As our review title says, a "home from home" is what Annette and Tony's is.

Our Son was a quiet and sometimes a shy little boy when he started but after a little while that soon changed, since he has been at Annette and Tony's he has come on leaps and bounds and has become a confident, well mannered and independent young man.

The setting is excellent, they study different themes across the year IE Seasons, Cultures, Food and Animals either inside or in the well equipped garden space.

The food menu is varied daily, cooked fresh and the children do have options to choose from.

We love the fact that they get the children out and about on excursions regularly throughout the year to various places.

Annette and Tony have been very flexible when needed and always available for advice.

Everything our Son does, learns, eats is updated on baby days regularly with photos.

Our son is very happy there and often comes home with crafts and paintings reminding him of the day he has had.

Also our son has made many friends there and is complete set up and ready to start school this September.

We 100% trust Annette and Tony and would recommend them to anyone 100% also.

Thanks for everything. xx

We were recommended Annette and Tony's childcare by two different people, a colleague who had used them and another local childminder. We were looking for that magical combination of a childminders with enough other children to develop social skills and confidence but also personal and focused care with a variety of activities and learning opportunities. And to our delight, we found it all and more with Annette and Tony!

Our son has been with them for nearly a year now. The children and their childcare setting is truely their passion and the care they provide for our son, and us as his parents, is remarkable. They go the extra mile with everything and above and beyond what we could have imagined. They plan each week around a new theme and book: the daily activities, outings and food all reflect the theme. We get goodies and crafts sent home all week, often delicious home baked goods! They take the children out on lots of different excursions and to different play groups and their home and garden is perfectly set up with multiple play/activity areas. They update us daily on an app with pictures and info and their communication, planning and paperwork is excellent.

They've been flexible with our needs, always reassuring and really helped to ease me into going back to work and my son to settle into his new environment - everyday I pick him up he is smiling and so happy. Can't recommend them highly enough!

Annette and Tony have been looking after my two boys for over a year, and I couldn't ask for better childminders.

As any parent, I was hesitant about returning to work and leaving my children in the care of another, however from the first meeting with Annette and Tony any concerns were dispersed.

In the past year my boys have come on leaps and bounds and it is really noticeable that Annette and Tony care deeply for what they do and spend the time to tailor each activity to the individual child.

Every day the boys come home excited to tell me what they have been up to, and keen to show me everything they have made!

It is clear the care they are given is second to none, Annette and Tony are first class at what they do, and my children couldnt be happier.

Going back to work was a really nerve wracking experience for me but even on our first visit to Annette and Tony they put both me and my husband at ease and my daughter fell asleep in Tony's arms which proved how relaxed she was.

She has been there for a year now and I am still so amazed at how fantastic they are. Always willing to provide guidance and any advice and also provide so much interaction with the children in their care, regularly changing themes on what they are doing with the children. We have had tiger who comes to tea, hospitals, oceans and so many more.

I never worry about my daughter when she is there. They keep you updated on what is going on and my little girl is so happy.

She comes home daily with crafts that she has made and they always go that extra mile for special occasions.

If you get a chance to have Annette and Tony as your childminders, grab it.
