Lindsey is a brilliant childminder. She is trustworthy and extremely professional. My daughter was extremely happy in her care. Lindsey is great at keeping you up to date with what they are doing, crafting, playing, reading, learning etc. through the usual pick up chats but also with pictures throughout the day on WhatsApp. It was extremely reassuring knowing my daughter was in her care. She cares about your child’s safety and also about their development and enjoyment. She was a tremendous help in toilet training and helping her eat a balanced diet. I highly recommend Lindsey. Thank you so much Lindsey!

Lindsay has looked after both my son (weekly) and daughter (mostly during school holidays as my daughter was already in nursery when my son started to go to Lindsay) in the last 2 years. They both love her very much; they are both at school now but it's always a pleasure for them to go back to Lindsay throughout the year during school holidays. Honestly, we could not have asked for a better childminder. From the time my son started to go to Lindsay, I never looked back. I knew that we had found the perfect childminder for him and never had I to worry when he was with her. He settled very easily and was always happy to go. Lindsay is patient, dedicated, gentle, caring, respectful and, trustworthy. Her setting is clean, very welcoming for the kids, she has a good selection of toys and a nice garden. She is very good to organise activities and to go out with the kids - zoo, playgroups, parks, going walking, craft projects, etc... One very important thing for us is also that she was very good to communicate with us and very responsive when we had questions. She is using a great platform to keep parents informed on everything going on with their kids during the day - food, nappies, toilet training, snacks, activities, new developmental milestones, etc... I will be forever grateful on how helpful she has always been and how caring she was with both our children. Thank you again Lindsay! xxx

Note that I have not rated Lindsay for the food as for us this criteria is not applicable - I have always sent my kids with their own snacks/lunches.

My husband and I found Lindsay Allerhead on a childcare provider website. It was sheer luck really that we found her after working through the huge list of providers. We are so thankful that we found Lindsay. Liam is our youngest child and I was returning to work part time and wanted to find the right person with the right environment for looking after Liam.
We would like to highly recommend Lindsay as an extremely talented childminder. She is very caring and Liam took to her straight away which gave us piece of mind and made drop offs really easy. She is very loving to all children in her care with no bias towards anyone in particular. My husband and I have recommended Lindsay to all our friends with children of their own and they all have a high opinion of her. Even the owner of Benty Heath Kindergarten preschool which Liam also attends has a very high opinion of Lindsay and recommends her to new parents starting her Kindergarten. Liam has been in Lindsay’s care for just over a year and we have not once had any issues.
Lindsay was not only a great provider for my son, but she is also a good friend. Lindsay is a good communicator and she has reported any concerns directly to us and was very understanding in working with us to get the best results for Liam. We always felt comfortable asking her for advice and help. Lindsay's entire family is very friendly and I know Liam has enjoyed playing games and doing activities with her older kids.
Liam is now 4 and is starting primary school this September. We will continue to see Lindsay of course and we know we can always call her for any future childcare needs.
If you are looking for someone that will provide a high standard of care to your child as you would yourself, then Lindsay is that person. We would definitely recommend her. She is probably the best day care provider that we have had and Liam will miss her dearly.

Lindsay has been looking after our daughter for almost 5 yrs now.she is an excellent childminder and is a god send.
We never felt worried about anything and there has been room for communication at all times since Lindsay is always available on phone, emails etc.
My daughter loves going to Lindsay’s house and is made to feel like a part of the family from the very beginning, which is why we opted for a childminder over day nursery in the first place. Lindsay’s setting provides a great deal of stimulation for children of all ages and has a wealth of resources to keep them entertained all day long. Our daughter especially enjoyed the outdoor play she is able to provide, as well as their regular excursions to toddler groups, local parks and not forgetting the zoo, which was always a favourite

Lindsay has been very good at taking the kids to places where they meet other kids (toddlers groups, parks, zoo’s etc) and where the surrounding has been good and great fun for children. Lindsay’s garden has been an excellent place to be for kids due to its privacy and safe layout.

Lindsay was always incredibly understanding and supportive of us as full-time working parents which made life a lot easier, as did knowing our little one was happy and safe in a family environment. She helped us through sleep issues, potty-training and the initial shy nature of our daughter in a calm and professional manner that demonstrates the depth of experience she has with toddlers and children. My daughter misses her even when we go away on holidays and can’t wait to go back to her. She has always been very friendly and I am very comfortable discussing with her anything not just child care. She runs local toddler groups and organises night outs for the mums which gives an excellent opportunity to meet other mums. She is up-to-date with her training and attends courses that would help her in child care.

I’d certainly recommend her to any parent who is looking for a fun, loving and caring environment and peace of mind with a high standard of childcare.

Lindsay has been child minding my children for over 2 years. I have found her to be organised and thoroughly professional. She has also shown herself to be extremely accommodating, highlighted when my daughter moved to high school and required an alternative 'pick up'. There are currently a range of children being looked after by Lindsay,aged from under 1 to 11. All of the children soon become friends and are expected to fit in with each others needs and lifestyles (Brownies, Beavers etc); this all adds up to a distinct 'famlily feel', a brilliant service and one I am more than happy to recommend.
