Our son started here when we recently moved to the area. From day 1 Barbara made us feel so at ease with looking after our son, which took the stress of the new move away knowing we had found her. We can’t quite believe how much development and skills our son has learnt whilst being there. Every day he comes home and is so excited to tell us about his amazing day and what he did. Barbara is also so flexible which is a massive stress when both parents work, and this has been taken away for us. We are so lucky to of found Barbara, she is a amazing! I would fully recommend her to look after any child without any hesitation!

She’s a massive part of our life’s

Handing our son over to Barbara and Cindy at 9mths old was so difficult at the beginning but after only a few short weeks our son doesn't even look back to us now when we drop him off because he loves them so much and is so excited everyday! It feels like we're just leaving him with a family member now and I never need to worry at work as I receive lots of lovely videos and photos to see what he's up to during the day. We feel very lucky to have found Auntie Barbara when we did! 😊

Our son has been with Barbara and Cindy since he was 9 months old. Since day one we were reassured with pictures, videos and reports from his day. He couldn’t be happier there and has learnt so much in 6 months. We genuinely feel like Barbara and Cindy adore him and he adores them. They are so flexible and there is no stress when I am running late from work (they even put him in his pjs for me!). He eats so well and as a result will eat absolutely anything and is not at all fussy with food. He’s 13 months and does so many activities every day and learns from the older babies. I honestly don’t think we could have found anyone better.

Barbara creates the kindest, happiest, environment in her home. My child happily goes to her when she’s dropped, smiling from ear to ear. I cannot recommend Barbara and her team enough, especially for younger infants who might be too small for nursery. They are such a thoughtful, compassionate and flexible bunch.

Barbara and Cindy have been an amazing addition to my son Tobias's life. Everyday he can't wqit to push us out of the door so he can get on and play. I love getting the videos and photos everyday to let me know how he is getting on.

I know others have said it before, but this is really is
a “home away from home” that offers a warm and loving environment for your little one to grow. Barbara and her team are warm, welcoming, understanding, engaging, honest, respectful and you can see truly love what they do. I’m so happy we found her and would recommend them with 100% confidence.

For a single parent as a mother who had to go to work early in the morning was great finding someone like Barbara to leave my son with as he normally doesn't stay with anyone he doesn't know but with Barbara, Cindy and Lily-Rose it was completely different. It was as if he felt at home at Barbara's. He would always ring the bell or knock the door smiling and happy to be there and going there. My son used to be a fussy eater but since taking him to Barbara his appetite has improved considerably and eats really well now. Settling sessions were great because my son was sooo at ease that if you saw him you thought he had been there all the time or from the day he was born. Barbara you, Lily-Rose and Cindy are fantastic. Thank you for everything x. You are a God send xx.

Aunty Barbara and the girls are unbelievable with my daughter (she literally jumps out of my hands every morning).

I wanted childcare in a home like setting where my child could play, interact with other children, learn, fed homely meals, together with being shown love and care, all of which I feel my daughter gets with Barbara and her team.

I am sent videos throughout the day which I love so I can get a glimpse of what she's up to whilst I work.

Barbara is very aware when a child isn't themselves, my daughter recently was poorly and thanks to Barbaras quick vigilance, i could collect her and get her diagnosed before it developed into something more serious.

Thank you for everything ladies - see you tomorrow!

I had to go back to work 4 days a week when my son was just 9 months old. I was really nervous because he had only ever been with me and my husband, and cried if anyone else held him. He’s been with Auntie B for a month now and he’s become so confident and will let anyone hold him, started saying Mamma, and learnt to crawl. Having auntie B has made going back to work so easy because I know they genuinely love him and he’s so happy there.
