My now 3 year old daughter has been coming to Karen for the last 2 years. She loves it there, learns a lot and has a lot of fun. I like the activities that they do. My daughter soon will go to pre-school, but will always look back on a very enjoyable time for both my daughter and for me. in addition to the great childcare provided, Karen's communication is good, she is very organised and has helped me out a few times outside of care hours. Overall very good.

Karen has been minding my little boy since he was six months old. She has always been very caring towards my son and is a very understanding and flexible. My son always seems happy when we get to the house and excited to see her. I have been very happy with her as a minder.

Karen has continued to provide excellent care to my child whom she has watched from the age of 4 months.

He loves being there, enjoys his play time and has learned many of the early learning skills to set him up for nursery. He's counting and singing nursery rhymes with confidence and has developed confidence around any group of children and I largely attribute that to Karen's approach to interaction both with the children and their parents.

I'm purposely dragging my feet to keep him with her as long as possible, I value her efforts so much. I continue to rate Little Angels and would recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and understanding childminder.

My son has been with Karen now for over a couple of years and during that time I've seen that he really enjoys his time with her, and that she is someone we feel we trust very much with him. He is always happy when he gets there and seems to be doing a variety of things to keep him stimulated and learning. We've never had any problems and Karen has always been really helpful and flexible whenever we've had any challenges.

I would very much recommend Karen

My daughter has been coming here for the past 2 years, and it has been the greatest childcare experience i have ever had! from the first day my child connected with Karen and was happy to be left. she is treated like an extension to the family which is great for me as I want my child to have a homely environment. At Little Angels they are Clean, Caring and helps to teach the kids in the early years.

Unfortunately I have moved so have to change provider but I am dragging it out as long as possible as I know this is going to be upsetting for my daughter.

This Childminder is one in a million.
