I have a people carrier and take the children to play groups and activities all over the borough. I think I am approachable, patient and conscientious.

My daughter absolutely loved her time with Natalie. Everything from her speech and communication to her counting, letters and colours flourished under Natalie. Natalie’s is warm, very approachable and accommodating. Can’t recommend her enough.

I felt Natalie was very approachable from the first time I met her to look after my daughter. My daughter started with Natalie when she was 7 months old and has always been happy to stay with her whilst i'm at work; which made me feel completely at ease. I feel Natalie gives a home from home feeling when looking after my daughter and I have loved the fact that she gets to experience all the different groups that I would be taking her to, if I didn't work, for no extra cost. Thank you Natalie for looking after my little girl, as if she was your own.:)

My son was 9 months old when we first started using Natalie's services as a childminder - From the get go she was very welcoming and answered any of our questions.
We previously used a full time nursery, but have found that the more intimate setting of a childminder to be more suitable for our needs and for our son's comfort. He was barely moving to start with, but within a week he was starting to crawl and move around, and has thrived massively in her care. 2 months later he's cruising furniture, on the cusp on walking, and an incredibly happy and healthy little man.

Natalie has been looking after my son since Sept 2016 for 3 days a week. My husband works shifts and she has always accommodated our varied weekly schedule and has been more than happy to have my son for additional hours last minute. Natalie has always given the best care for my son and has always provided a friendly atmosphere for him. My son throughly enjoys his time there with all the activities Natalie's provides.

My son has been attending Natalie's on a regular basis over the last year. He attends for before and sometimes after school. Natalie is very flexible and as I'm a nurse this is so essential as I work shifts. She starts early in the morning and has always been available when I've needed her.

She is friendly and approachable and my son enjoys going to her abs also loves interacting with the other children in her care. This is so important as a parent as it means I can leave him there and not have to worry at all. If there are ever any issues while he is in Natalie's care she will approach me straight away and we will discuss how to tackle these. Natalie is dedicated to the safety of the children in her care.

He often does loads of activities with Natalie and is always bringing stuff home to show me.

I would be lost without her
