I chose Caroline as a childminder for my baby (6 months old) when returning to work in May 2019.

She has been literally perfect. Molly absolutely loves her, her daughter and the rest of the family and the other kids there. It is a home from home. We couldn't ask for better.

Caroline is flexible, will always discuss things with you, helps Molly progress with everything and works with you to keep routines etc suitable for both of you. Caroline is always doing activities or groups with the kids and also meeting up with other childminders so the children get to mix with lots of other kids. We have a whatsapp group with her so we get updates and pictures, but also the other way round - we actually send updates as well. Like when Molly miraculously climbed the stairs on holiday!

We know Molly will enjoy every minute at Caroline's for years to come and we absolutely trust Caroline and couldn't be happier with her as Molly's childminder. Thanks Caroline!!
