Outstanding childcare. Our kids love Pip.

We have been with Pip from when she started childminding and she has been incredible throughout. Pip is kind, caring, considerate and keeps the kids that she looks after in line, with a fair approach.

She has taken our 2 kids (a girl and a boy, now 7&9) to school and picked them up for the last couple of years. Our kids trust her, & we trust her. The kids have fun, are safe and active, do loads of activities & feel like part of the family.

Her home is like a 2nd home, her kids have become friends with our kids and they eat healthy & varied meals at her table like they would at ours. Our kids love that they get to choose their favourite Pip meals on a rota - for mine, it's either her spaghetti spiders or tuna pesto bake.

On top of all of this, Pip has made an amazing effort over Covid to make her setting safe, whilst providing clear communication to parents, whether key worker or not.
