Very good childminder. We feel comfortable leaving our kid there as she take care of our son like her own. Very much satisfied. Also the support we have been given since our son going there is fantastic and specially when your child is young his needs are very demanding but Bal and G works hard to fulfil those needs. Highly recomonded.
Bal and Gee are absolutely great! They have been very understanding and patient with us and our little girl, Zainab who is 2 following our big move to Manchester. Bal tried anything and everything to help our little one settle and within a few weeks she was asking us when she will go to see Bal and her friends! A huge thank you to Bal and Gee for providing a fantastic environment for our little girl!
My daughter has been with Bal for nearly 3months now and she has been very patient and accommodating. The first few weeks were very difficult for my daughter to adapt but Bal and her husband went out of their way in helping her settle by adapting to her needs. She is now more confident and also engages in many activities like playgroups, artwork, storytime etc. They provide a great clean environment for the kids to learn and grow and the regular updates and photos provided are a bonus! Both Bal and Gee are fantastic and very experienced with children and their friendly, patient and calm personalities are great attributes to have when working with children. I would highly recommend them.
Bal and Gee are outstanding childminders and genuinely lovely people. I feel so lucky to have found them. I felt that choosing someone to take care of my child was such an important decision to make, and my mind is at rest knowing that my little boy is in safe hands. My son has food allergies and digestive issues and I was concerned about how he would settle in, but Bal had first hand experience and I felt confident that she would know how to handle him. When I met Bal she was very organised and thorough and showed me all her paperwork. As well as being organised, she was also really warm and flexible and able to adapt to my child’s needs. I immediately felt I had found the right person on meeting her. Her assistant/ partner Bal is also so nice and calm and patient. My little boy took to him straight away when we met with them. They have looked after my boy for 3 months now and he is well settled in. I like the fact there is a small group of children of a similar age or slightly older, and my boy loves interacting with the other children. They have a lovely enclosed garden which my boy also really enjoys. Bal sends me pictures and I can see that he is happy and engaging in lots of fun activities. I highly recommend Bal and Gee.
My daughter aged now 15 months has been cared for by Bal for a few months now and I can’t express enough just how wonderful Bal is. Eva settled very quickly and is so happy when I drop her and pick her up, it’s such a great feeling to know that she is very content and happy when at Bal’s. What’s amazing is the amount of confidence Eva has gained since being around the other children and being in the safe friendly environment Bal provides, the opportunities Eva has from messy play, story time and outings with Bal and the other children has advanced her skills massively. Apart from Bal being great with Eva she is also very understanding and patient with parents. I love the level of detail I get when I pick Eva up from what she has eaten that day and when she’s slept to all the fun things and art work she may have done that day. I feel very comfortable aproaching Bal and she is very clear and thorough in anything that needs to be discussed, the communication is fab. I honestly can’t recommend Bal enough, everyday I feel lucky to have found someone I completely trust who has not only all the experience that’s required but also the loving nurturing nature my child loves to be around, it’s a great feeling!
Bal provided a last minute babysitting service and our kids felt immediately at home. Would definitely use her again.
We put our son, George with Bal and Gee in December when I went back to work. It's such a huge decision and we were really reassured by how open and friendly Bal and her husband Gee are, and the fact that they have 4 children so are "old hands" so to speak. We have been seriously impressed by them- the house is cosy, clean and warm, the communication is fantastic and most importantly George loves being there and always has a great time. It's a joy to pick him up and see him so happy! He really enjoys it and does loads of fun activities to keep him entertained. We are really happy he goes to Bal's - it makes leaving him just that little bit easier. She also sends me updates throughout the day, including photos and it honestly gets me through the day knowing he is having a great time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!
My 5yr old settled immediately with Bal and Gee. He loves going before and after school. The garden is fab and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. Good communication, behaviour management and very accommodating too. An excellent choice.
My two children (19m and nearly 5) has been looked after by Bal and her husband Gee for 3.5 days a week for the last month, having previously been at a day nursery. I am really pleased with their care and they are happy and settled. My son had a tough week or so starting at school and I think he settled better when Bal started taking him in than he did with me taking him in for the first week. My daughter is happy to have another little girl of similar age to play with, enjoys going to playgroup on Thursdays, playing in the garden and doing a lot of eating!
It is a happy and caring household to leave my children in. I have no hesitation in recommending Bal.
Bal is a very organised and homely childminder looking after children of all ages in a comforting environment. She is very flexible with our schedules and always willing to go the extra mile to keep my 11year old daughter and us happy. She has also looked after our 8 year old daughter and I am absolutely grateful for her help to us at the time we needed most
