Rosalie stayed with Ellaine from 10months until 17months, I couldn’t have wished for a better childminder . She is always very calm and nurturing , she would give advice if I had questions. Food was always a success . In these weird times where we stayed
confined for months, without close family around , it felt that we had give Rosalie a sense of community by staying with Ellaine and we are forever grateful. Our only regret was to leave her as we moved to France . Merci & you’re always welcome here !

Ellaine looked after our son for just over a year from 3 until 4 years old. Her home is like a family home - because her grandchildren are often there, that makes it feel like a family setting. Ellaine is very caring but also has really clear boundaries, a good combination in my opinion. She understood our son’s needs and personality very quickly and he settled very quickly. It’s also great that she has outdoor space for the kids to play in. And our son quickly developed friendships with the other children.
My son still asks to go to Ellaine’s for visits, which is as good a recommendation as any!

The childcare provided by Ellaine is second to none, our little boy has been going to her home for 3 or 4 days a week since he was 10 months old. He is now a boisterous 18 month old who is thriving in the loving and caring environment provided by Ellaine. It is a real home away from home and he is so very very happy there. The activities, the home cooked meal, the great communication, and knowing just how well looked after he is made my transition from maternity leave back to work so easy. Our son runs to her front door in the mornings and is greeted by all his little friends which he has made there. We couldn't recommend Ellaine and the incredible service she provides highly enough. We can't believe how lucky we were to find her and will be using her for any futures babies we might have! A proper surrogate grandmother who is now party of our family as we feel part of hers!

Ellaine has been an incredible influence of love and stability for the development of our son. He’s 2yrs 5months and has been going to Ellaine’s nearly full time since he was 19months. To entrust this responsibility to someone is huge. Ellaine really does love the kids and keeps them in line. She gets new toys for the kids and comes up with activities for them. Finally, the backyard has a slide with a paddling pool at the bottom when it’s hot in summer - [my son has just informed me when I asked what he likes at Ellaine’s]

Our 3 year old daughter has been with Ellaine for almost a year, and it has been such a great time for us all. Ellaine has been like a grandmother to her, and we have been so happy leaving her in Ellaine's care. Ellaine looks after the children at her family home, and they are all treated like members of the family. She is extremely caring and loving to the kids, who all adore her. She often takes them on trips to playgroups, farms, and the local museum. They are also always doing fun activities like making their own pizzas or crafting and painting. Ellaine's home is full of toys and she has a lovely garden, in the nicer weather the kids get to play in her paddling pool. She is also really helpful, she even took my daughter to get her haircut recently as I couldn't get to a hairdressers. My daughter loves going to Ellaine's and we will be so sad when we have to change childcare provider when we move house in a month or so. We recommend her highly! Thank you Ellaine for looking after our daughter so well, we are all going to miss you!
