Rose has cared for my two boys for the last three years, with my youngest being just 2 yrs when he went to her.
Both boys adore her and are disappointed that they are leaving her this year.
Rose has never ever let us down. She has been flexible and accommodating throughout and never ceases to amaze me with her energy and organisation.
My boys adore her. She is kind and caring and not afraid to give cuddles to the boys when needed. She sets boundaries and gives clear instruction. She continually challenges my boys and I have seen my youngest's confidence develop incredibly in her care.
I cannot recommend Rose highly enough and am only sorry to be leaving her. Rose, there will always be a place in our lives for you and we look forward to staying in touch.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your kind words.

It's been a real pleasure looking after the boys, and working with both of you.
It's been endless fun.... and I'm sure we will keep in touch.
Remember I'm only a phone call away if you need me in the future ?

All the best to you all.


I found Rose via the childcare website, I made her a favourite & she imedialty contacted me back, very pro-active. I went round to visit Rose & I felt at ease straight away, she reminded me of my mum (no offence Rose) but she has a very natural caring nature. I can find some child carers over bearing! To soppy ect. My 8 month started full time care with Rose in Oct 2012 and he settled within days. I have always found Rose, caring, professional & flexible which is important as a full time working mum. Rose does loads with the children, every day playgroups, park, farms and keeps the children in her care entertained at home with lots and learning through play. She has kept a full journel, which is lovely to review as it makes me feel part of their days. I would recommend Rose to anyone & i'm sorry to not be needed her help anymore on a full time basis. She would be my first choice if I ever needed anyone again. I'm sure we're keep in touch. x

Hi Claire,

I understand how hard it is to find the right childcare when you are returning to work ! and I am very glad you choose me. It has been a pleasure working with you and your family. I have really enjoyed caring for your little man, watching him grow from a baby, his first tooth and then his first steps and now a lovely happy toddler.....

I wish you all the best for the future and yes i am sure we will keep in touch as i would love to know how his getting on.

Take care
Rose x

(i'll take the bit about your mum as a compliment ha ha).
