Angie is currently looking after my daughter Eva and has been since last August. I can honestly say hand on my heart, that she is a wonderful carer of children and that my daughter has come on leaps and bounds since being with her.

She is a very caring and thoughtful childminder and her daughter Sophie is always lovely towards my daughter too.

Since being with Angie, her vocabulary has come on leaps and bounds and her confidence around children has grown significantly. She keeps a wonderful diary of your child's development and sends pics if you ever feel worried (if they have been a bit poorly that morning for example).
Days out are organised regularly and lots of picnics in the park in the summer which Eva is currently enjoying very much.

I was aware of the recent Ofsted 'complain't as Angie has kept me informed at all times, but to my knowledge no action has been taken or any formal notice given to Angie. I have always been very comfortable with the number of children Angie is looking after.

Eva is a very happy little girl at Angie's, who just has that 'knack' with children. Just recently my little girl has had an op and she will only allow Angie to put her eye drops in!
100% satisfied with her service ;O)

Angie is wonderful. My son has been with her for almost two years and I have never once questioned my decision. She is warm, affectionate, positive and very easy to talk to about parental concerns. She supplies my son with three meals a day and is extremely flexible with her hours. I often turn up late or early to pick him up and she always greets me with a smile. My son is always coming home exhausted having had a busy day out at Willows farm/funzone/ the park/ a museum..... He knows so much that he can only have learnt at the childminders and she keeps meticulous records of his progress! Absolutely brilliant!

My daughter has been looked after by Angela for 3 months since I returned to work. I was worried about going back to work for 4 full days as my daughter was only 11 months so it was a big change for her.
I am really happy with how well my daughter has settled in to life with Angela, she is always keen to get out of her pram and goes straight in to the house with a smile. They do fun activities every day such as going to Willows, the library, soft play or play group. Things that I would do myself if I was not at work. She also has a varied diet with lots of healthy food.
Angela is really efficient and very flexible, both with what child care you need, but also planning the days activities round your child's needs where possible.
I would 100% recommend Angela to anyone looking for a childminder.
