My daughter came to Little Lanterns when she was a little over a year. This was one of the best decisions, ever. I was very impressed with my daughter’s development. Sherita is very good and passionate with kids. My daughter had a notebook, giving full details of the activities during the course of the day. Well done Little Lanterns !!! Thank you so much for all your excellent work, and attention to detail. I highly recommend Little Lanterns.

My son has been going to Sherita for over a year now. She’s been absolutely great with him and making him feel comfortable in her home. He is my first so leaving him with anyone was scary.
My son is a little delayed in some areas and sherita has been really good at understanding and working with me together as a team! I would recommend sherita to everyone as she’s really open to how you’d like to try things with your child but also has great suggestions too. Thank you sherita for all your support x

Thank you very much Pam, you are doing a great job with Rohan too x
I am sure that he will continue to make amazing progress. Absolutely sure x!

i have been taking my son to Sherita for nearly a year now ,and i have been happy with my son's development. As a first time mum, i was worried about leaving my son for the first few weeks,but sherita was welcoming and reassuring and made it easier for me to know my son is in good hands. As an experienced mum herself,she also tends to encourage me alot with helping my son Lonwabo become more independent and to learn to do things for himself early,which i found hard because i was used too doing most things for him,but now an reaping the benefits of his independence and is less stressful for me. Her home is nice airy and clean and is definitely a home away from home and would recommend her to anyone or any first time mums.

Sherita contacted me through this site last year, during a very stressful time searching for new Childcare for my son. What I immediately liked about Sherita was that she is calm and reassuring.
My son has flourished in her care, he is almost a different child! He is so much more confident in himself, in the space of a few months he was singing the alphabet song, counting everything, and writing his own name ready for school. She has encouraged him to be brave and try things, encouraging his independence, ready for school. The change in him has been commented on by all the family.
Sherita regularly wrote progress reports with some lovely photos, which we took home to read and show family. We now have this to keep.
My son is only leaving her care due my ill health and having to leave work, which I am desperately sad about! We will both miss Sherita very much, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

(I haven't rated for food as my son didn't have meals with Sherita. She did however provide snacks for my son, and they regularly cooked/baked, which my son really enjoyed!)

Oh thank you very much Sarah for submitting a review. Very honest and emotional. Thank you for your service. I really do miss you guys. I had a really fantastic childminding experience with your son, he made my job really easy and challenging, always keeping me busy as he alway want to do something new.

Thank you for being a fantastic parent too!

Sharita provides an engaging and warm environment for my 3 year old son. My son loves going and has become more independent and confident since attending. He has learnt so much and continues to flourish. She is a brilliant childminder and would highly recommend her.
