We are so lucky to have found Mary to look after our little boy. As a first time mum I was super nervous about leaving him but Mary put our minds at ease so quickly and we have complete trust in her. Mary helped Charlie with lots of settling in sessions and built up such a great rapport with him so quickly. Charlie is so happy when he is with her and has learnt so much in his time at Mary’s. She really is a home from home and Charlie gets so excited on the steps up to Mary’s, when I pick him up he often wants to stay longer..! He really has come along in so many developmental points and his speech especially is great. Mary takes the children to lots of groups throughout the week and it’s great to see him mixing with other ages of children. It has made returning to work so much easier knowing we have found the right place for him and knowing that when I drop him off he loves seeing Mary and her family. Mary is a kind and warm lady with a heart of gold. I couldn’t recommend her enough.
My little girl Emma has been staying with Mary full time since she was 12 weeks old. She is there every day all day and loves it. Mary also looked after her a few times when she was only 6 weeks old and she is now just over a year old and is always very excited whenever she sees Mary. It was very difficult for me to go back to work full time and Mary made it all a lot easier. She is amazing and so helpful. She is always available and very knowledgeable. Emma has learnt a lot there and she is always tired and happy from her busy dayes. I can only highly recommend Mary.
Mary is quite simply awesome and I could not do without her. She is a brilliant childminder and my two children, a boy aged 2, nearly 3 years and daughter aged 6 1/2 years, love going to her home (in fact they are disappointed on the days when they are not going to Marys!).
The most important thing to me about Mary is her ability to make my children feel at home, and as Millie's mum has already said, Mary's is a 'home from home', where the children feel welcome, safe and loved.
Mary has looked after my children since the Summer 2014, when I returned to work full time as a Police Officer due to separating from my husband. Mary has been fantastic at helping my children to feel settled despite having to accommodate my unsociable and ever changing shift pattern. She is always understanding if I am late off work and has never let me down, despite what ever else life has thrown at her.
Mary primarily looks after my 2 year old son, whose development has come on leaps and bounds since being with her. He has hit all of his development milestones and exceeded many. Mary has every toy conceivable and comes up with so many fun ideas for the children to play, as well as taking them to toddler group and on days out. I love that all the children of different ages interact so well and it is very much like an extended family.
Mary very much has the same idea as me with regards to manners, discipline and the children learning responsibility. This is not only reflected in Mary's own two children, who are both lovely, polite and well mannered, but also in my children's development. Mary's eldest child (and husband on occasion!) also babysits for me and, like his mother is fantastic with children. He is a very mature and responsible young man who has been invaluable to me often at very short notice.
Mary is quite simply, 'The Best'!
Mary had my 3 girls for just over a year and a half, she has been amazing in the helping the transition of my twins going from toddlers to preschool and helping them get ready for starting school. She was great picking up my eldest from school and keeping her entertained through learning based play.
At half terms and during the summer Mary would often take the girls out on day trips and come home with "master pieces" that they have made!
The setting is great with a great range of toys and the set up is lovely, the girls were also introduced to different kinds of pets which they also grew attached to (especially rocky the tortoise!) there's nothing I could fault with anything! She's understanding when we've been late in rare occasions, had the patience of a saint when the twins were going through toilet training, this lady can deal with it all and still end the day with a smile!

Sorry for the very late response but thank you for the great review and it was a pleasure looking after your children. I hope to continue to "bump" into them when doing my Uplands pick up and drop offs.
My daughter Millie Anne has only been seeing Mary for a few months but she really loves it. Mary provides a home from home service and is fantastic with my little girl. I drop Millie off with no hesitation that she will be cared for in everyway possible and there are no dramas when I leave, I pick her up later in the day and I sometimes think she would prefer to stay there. Mary often goes out with the children she looks after but when at home she provides every kind of toy a child could want to play with all in a very loving and secure home. I only have good things to say about her family too, they have taken a real shine to my daughter as she has to them and I couldn't ask for anything else. The bond between Millie and Mary is great and I know that over the years this will continue to grow. Mary is highly recommended by myself, I have absolutely no concerns about my child's happiness and safety.
