I have recently started using Shirley's childmimding services for my daughter. Being a new mum it all felt quite daunting finding someone I felt comfortable leaving my baby with ready for returning back to work. My daughter being just 3 months old I made the decision to go back into work once a month so started using Butterflies Day Care earlier than expected and Shirley has been absolutely wonderful. She has kept me updated throughout the day and reassures me that my daughter is in the best care as I see her little face smiling away on all of the pictures that are sent to me. Can't thank Shirley enough!

THANKYOU so much for your lovely review honestly it’s a absolute pleasure and I’m so honoured to look after your beautiful little girl she’s absolutely amazing xxxxx

My little girl has been going to Shirley since she was 11 months and loves it! She has such a great time and I love to receive photos and updates of what she is up to whilst I am at work! They are always up to something fun and I feel my daughter has grown in confidence and is always learning with Shirley. Thank you for everything you do!

Thankyou so much Nichols for your lovely comment absolutely lovely looking after your little girl Thankyou so much for choosing me xxxxxx

My son has been going to Shirley’s since he turned 1 and he absolutely loves the time he spends there. All I have to say is it’s time to go to Shirley’s and he’s by the front door ready to go.
I’m a single mum and I work shift and Shirley is super flexible which is exactly what I need and can be very hard to find. I feel extremely lucky to have been lucky enough to find Shirley and I know I’ll be using her for many years to come.
Thank you for being amazing xxx

Thankyou so much Sophia for your lovely review your absolutely welcome xxx

Shirley takes care of my son and has had him in her care from 7 weeks old. She is a very caring child minder and has been an absolute angel. She sends me updates throughout the day which has really put my mind at rest with him being so young. She takes him to local playgroups and playcenters which will benifit him and his confidents in future years. We always talk about his milestones and things he's achieved even at such a young age. When he attends butterflys day care he's always full of smiles for Shirley, this lets me know I've found a diamond to take care of him. Thankyou Shirley. Xxx

My little boy has been going to Shirley since he was 11 months and he loves being there! He’s now almost two and he’s developed so well with Butterflies, he’s a lot more confident and his speech is improving massively! Couldn’t have chosen a better lady to take care of my boy.
