Lisa has looked after both our children Annabelle and Wilf from the age of 6 months old on a full time basis. My children are now nearly 4 and 2 and we couldn't ask for someone better to take care of them. Lisa is a part of our family and has been a great support to us as we live far away from our own families. She goes that extra mile to ensure that our children feel safe and welcome into her home.

I would have no hesitation in highly recommend Lisa as a child-minder. She is warm, caring, friendly and reliable. She has enabled my husband and I to continue to work full time and feel at ease that our children are in safe and loving hands. Her home has also been impressively adapted to accommodate her child minding services. Lisa ensures that each day is planned with fun filled and educational activities that are tailored to meet each child individual needs.

I can honestly say that there has never been a day when we have dropped the children off where there has been tears and this is a credit to her.

Thank you for everything that you do for us as a family xx

Lisa has been childminding my oldest daughter, Lila, who is now 7 since she was 1 year old, and also now my youngest daughter Daisy, 2, since I went back to work when she was 7 months old.
They both absolutely love going and I feel confident leaving them in Lisa's capable hands whilst I am at work. Lisa always keeps them interested in the different 'themes' they learn about by engaging the children with activities which suit them individually. For example my 7 year old loves arts and crafts, so Lisa ensures that Lila remains engaged in the themes by incorporating arts and craft themed activities in the day.
I would highly recommend Lisa to anybody looking for a friendly, reliable and trustworthy childminder in the area. I honestly don't think that we could have found a better childminder to look after our girls!
Thankyou for all you do Lisa x

Lisa has been looking after my nine year old severely disabled little boy for over three years now, she is amazing I do not know what I would do without her!! and often tell het this :) Olle can be very challenging and really hard work, but Lisa just gets on with it nothing is too much for her she goes above and beyond her duties I cannot praise her enough, Olle loves Lisa and her family as though they are his family which makes me very happy, I would recommend Lisa to anyone, I honestly do not have a bad word to say about her, and would recommend her to anyone looking for an honest brilliant amazing child minder who just loves children and thrives on spending her time with them. What a Star she is.

I wrote a review for Lisa In 2012, my little girl has still been going since the so thought it was time to update/write a new one!
Lisa is an excellent childminder who we have been using for almost 3 years now and we have had not one complaint! My daughter, lila, loves going to Lisa's house and see's her as family.
It is lovely knowing that I am leaving lila somewhere that not only I can trust she will be safe, but also that she thoroughly enjoys too! Lisa is always doing different activities with the children and lila is always bursting with things to tell me about what she has been doing and learning when she comes home. in fact lila often asks if she can go to Lisa's on my days off!!
Lisa is very flexible and we don't know how we would have managed without her. I know that not every childminder is as accommodating, especially as I have to have such early starts and sometimes long days at work as a nurse.
I would recommend Lisa to anyone who Is looking for a good , reliable childminder that they will feel happy and confident taking there children to.

I absolutely love looking after Lila she is a gorgeous little girl we all have great fun and she gets on with all my little buddies. I feel very proud to be her childminder and i am excited to continue being part of her busy learning life and cant wait to look after her baby sister too! Thankyou to you both also for being so great to work with i really appreciate everything and it makes my job so much easier x

Lisa looked after my little girl Roxy for over a year and would highly recommend her. Roxy loved going there which was piece of mind for me being a first time mum at the time and going back to work. I would still take my children to lisa ' s if she was closer to roxy's new nursery but unfortunately is too far. Lisa is a loving and caring person and is always wanting to do different activities with the children. I cannot recommend her enough definitely a 10 out of 10 x thanks Lisa, Roxy has never forgotten you
