Excellent childminding service provided by Sheba. Caring, reliable and professional at all times. Sheba has helped to drop and pick my daughter from the local school and is always on time. My daughter looks forward to going to her and enjoys the company of the other kids at the setting.

My four year old son has been coming to Sheba since he was one. We are extremely fortunate to have found Sheba and her family. He settled in very quickly and has thrived under her care. He has also developed a strong bond with her children who are of similar ages.

Sheba's setting is clean and tidy with extensive resources and spaces for the children to play and learn. She is kind, reliable, encouraging, understanding and flexible. Her setting is a conducive environment for my son to learn, grow and it meets his developmental milestones.

I feel very confident that when I leave my son with Sheba that he is in very good hands.

We are extremely pleased to have Sheba looking after our son who genuinely provides 'a home away from home environment' and also ensures that our wishes and requests are heeded to. She caters to the individual needs of the child and that really makes a difference!
I would wholeheartedly recommend Sheba for anyone considering childminding services,

My son has been looked after by Sheba now for just over 2 years. She is reliable, caring and very reasonable. My son adores Sheba and usually can't wait to go to her house. She offers an imaginative play area and always encourages the children to do their best, may it be through extra reading or setting her own tasks for the children.
