Phillipa has looked after my daughter for well over 2 years, I honestly have to say she is just fabulous and my daughter absolutely loves her.

Phillipa clearly has a passion for childcare, every single day she has planned activities and outings for the children. My daughter learnt to walk and talk during her time with Phillipa, and her encouragement and interest in her development is wonderful to see! My DD has also developed numeracy, reading skills, manners, social skills and her son even taught her how to use the ‘big girl swing’!

Phillipa is also really accommodating and flexible where she can be, I would certainly recommend her over a nursery environment. We are desperately sad that my DD is now off to preschool and has to leave her wonderful caring household, I really hope that we get the chance to send our second child to Phillipa in the coming years.

I honestly cannot recommend her enough!

Philippa looked after my daughter since she was 9 months old. I couldn't find a better chilminder. She has a great setting for children, always organising great activities and great meals for them. She is very sweet and very good in teaching children respect and good behaviour. My daughter Matilda has certainly learned a lot from Philippa. Highly recommended!
