Linda was the first childminder we saw and immediately we went at home with her. We brought out daughter along with us and she was off playing away already. Linda was lovely and friendly and very qualified and her home was warm and welcoming.
We did a 1 hour settling session and our daughter fitted in straight away. The loveliest bit was seeing the diary every day that Linda writes to keep you updated on what they've been up to.
Our daughter loved spending time with Linda and they went to lots of different groups and trips out and made crafts that she brought home. Our daughter often spoke about Linda at home too and was excited to go everyday.
I'd recommend Linda to anyone looking for a loving, caring and friendly childminder.
When I was looking for a childminder for my 12 month old son, I have viewed more than 6 childminders until I met Linda and I know straight away I don’t need to look further.
She is such a lovely person who always has a smiley face, and I really can feel her love to the children.
I work full-time, so when I look for childminder I need to make sure my son can settle very well after my maternity. Linda did a great job. She started with a few hours a day and within a week my son only cry a bit when I drop him off.
Linda is very experienced in taking care of children, by a month time my son has set up a routine at hers. She is also fully trained first aider for children. This is so important as we all know accident could happen!
Now my little one enjoys going to the groups, and play with other children. And he put on a big smile when he sees Linda every morning. I know he is in good care!
Our 2.5 year old is with Linda since he was 12 months old and he loves it every single day!
When we started with Linda, my son settled in immediately, and remains to be happy to be dropped off at Linda’s ever since. When we pick him up, he is always greeting us with a big smile and shout of joy.
In general our boy is fine with new faces or new places, which I believe it is due to he is well taken care of and receives plenty of assurance from Linda.
I also notice my son has picked up very good manners though Linda’s minding, he knows how to wash his hands by himself before eating, uses fork and spoon very well while eating, he can take his shoes off and jacket off after he gets home or cover his mouth while caughing, etc. All these small things I can tell Linda is not just taking care of my son but also teach him how to do things by himself, encourage him to learn new things and do it on his own.
Linda writes a daily diary recording what my little boy has done during the day, where they went, what he ate, how long the nap was and whether he pooed and also his learning progress, things he has achieved. To me, it is always the best moment of the day reading it and talking to my son what he has been doing at Linda's.
In the morning, Linda usually play with my son at her home with the toys she provides, which she changes on a regular basis to create new experiences. Linda combines playing with teaching, such as shapes, colours, alphabets and numbers. Sometimes she goes to the supermarket with him (by foot or car) and twice a week to playgroups and my son loves all these outdoor activities with Linda.
What I really like is through the diary and daily chats with her, we know our little one’s daily activities and developments. We also get a learning journey which shows all the development milestones and the feedback of where needs improvement.
I can’t thank Linda more for taking so well care of my son!
