My daughter has been in Marie’s care for a number of months now and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t trust her with anyone else.

She has a really lovely caring but professional disposition with all of the children in her care and treats them each as individuals.

My daughter adores Marie and constantly talks about her at home. She’s so happy each morning to arrive there and runs straight into her arms for a morning cuddle.

I’ve been extremely impressed with the daily activities Marie organises for the children, not only are they fun but also educational and very imaginative.

I honestly cannot recommend Marie enough I am so glad that I found her - there’s a reason that she has an outstanding OfSted report!!

Marie's childcare covers so many aspects; she is much more than just someone who looks after your kids so you can go to work. She obviously takes great pride in her job and genuinely cares for the children.
The house isn't always perfectly tidy, which is great! She's spending time with your kids, not with the hoover.
Marie was always taking my son to local playgroups and parks and meeting up with other childminders so the children had a bigger circle of friends and a wide variety of experiences.
A genuinely brilliant alternative to much more expensive nurseries.
