Craib Childcare is absolutely wonderful and I am delighted with the care provided for my daughter. Carol and George have created a lovely, homely and warm environment where my little girl is very happy. Carol and George create lots of opportunities to learn through play, and my daughter always comes home full of the things she has been doing, from crafts, to trips out, to games and outdoor play. They have assisted with my daughter's transition to a new school and changes at home and are always keen to help in whatever way they can. I honestly could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you both! xx

Thankyou Emily. She really is a pleasure to look after x

Carol and George have been minding my little girl Maya for a few months, who at first was a hard settler... She would cry every morning leaving me but now after all the comfort and support of both Carol and George, Maya will now kiss me, say bye bye and go play with the kiddies. She’s learnt so many new words and dances, it’s amazing the difference they make to Maya’s day. The excitement in her face when I tell her she is going to see George and Carol makes my life a lot easier whilst working. I couldn’t thank them both enough for everything they do for me and Maya. I would recommend to anybody looking for a pair of lovely, friendly and welcoming people to look after their precious little ones.

Absolutely delighted we found Craib Childcare. Our son has been here for a few months now and has settled really well. It is a home from home environment and he couldn't be happier. Carol and George go above and beyond with their care and are very attentive to our sons special needs. They put so much effort into making sure the children are always learning through play and having endless fun!

Carol and George work very well as a team. Together they organise a really creative, stimulating and engaging environment for the children. Their home is so caring too and my toddler is always made to feel so welcome-we both are! Communication is fantastic and we get regular updates during the day which is lovely to see or read at work. I also feel very comfortable asking a range of questions about the day etc and Carol and George’s answers are never rushed. Their care for our toddler is really appreciated!

Thank you Tania. We love you and your little family and couldn't ask for nicer people to use our service.

We couldnt recommend or praise Carol and George enough! The improvement we have seen in our son's development since he started going to Carol and George is fantastic, he is more sociable, walking better and talking more. They have been supportive to our needs as well as his and feel more like friends than just 'the childminders'. They have encouraged his development in a warm, friendly and stimulating environment. He's usually reluctant to be brought home at the end of the day! The facilities and care offered are first class. Very much a priceless service.
