Our son has been attending Cheeky Chops for 6 months and absolutely loves it. It's a warm and caring environment; He's always excited about going and enjoys telling us all about the things he's done with his day (trips out, dressing up, baking, crafts etc). He particularly enjoyed bringing home and looking after a dog teddy for a few days, including taking photographs of his adventures with the loaned children's camera and keeping a diary.

There are really good learning resources and the engagement and support we've had in helping guide our sons learning (e.g. helping with shapes) has been fantastic.

It's the little touches that make things really special, such as making a big effort on birthdays and themed days / activities (Christmas, Easter etc). We really value the daily journal and snapshots that keeps us informed and involved.

My daughter Tabitha has been going to Cheekychops since she was 5 months old, she is now nearly 2. I absolutely love the care my daughter receives from Lisa and her family, Tabitha never wants to leave when I pick her up in the evening. I am always confident that Tabitha is safe and well cared for and I really enjoy reading what she has been up to in her daily communication diary.
I feel like Lisa is a real life 'Mary Poppins' and can't recommend her highly enough. She is a rare find and worth her weight in gold.

My two children , Ethan and Jayna aged 7 and 11 have been going to Cheeky chops since the beginning of 2014 and thoroughly enjoy it, and adore Lisa and her family. I'd been and looked at numerous other childminders for care during the school holidays but none of them came close to cheeky chops. Lisa and her family are very warm, friendly and inviting people and instantly on our first visit both me and my children felt relaxed in the environment and knew that was where they would go. They always look forward to going and I always feel 100% happy with leaving them there as I know they're in great hands and will have a fab time!
The little extras that Lisa does are great too, such as the snap shots of the kids playing, drawing or baking throughout the day, and their birthdays are never forgotten either, even when they're not attending!
I asked Jayna why she likes going to cheeky chops and she said - "because it is fun and Lisa cares about us" .
Overall Lisa is a fabulous childminder, in a loving, and stimulating, family environment!

My 2 daughter had been attending since September 2015, I cannot speak highly enough of Lisa. Evie loves her and has settled in great. She learns something new every week and can't wait to go in a morning. Lisa goes above and beyond to ensure I know exactly how Evie's day has been, from what she's eaten and what she's done for the day to what mood she's been in.
Highly recommend!

My little boy Jamil has been going to Cheeky Chops since he was 16 months old and he is now about to turn 3!
When I first started looking for childcare I had a list of nurseries and childminders that I made enquiries with, Lisa was the first to reply and the most helpful, and a visit to meet Lisa and have a look at what she had to offer was arranged for the following week.
During our visit, Lisa and her family made us feel very welcome, Lisa immediately engaged with Jamil, talking to him, showing him toys, playing with the toys with him and still had time for the other child in her care and to answer any questions we had. It was after this visit that we knew that Cheekychops was the place for Jamil.

Jamil has a fun packed day everytime he attends Cheeky Chops, from playing with his friends to meeting new ones at children's centres, playgroups or meeting up with other childminders. Visits to the library, parks and play centres. Outdoor play, arts and crafts, cooking activities and much more, each day is varied and entertaining.

The menu on offer at Cheeky Chops is exciting, interesting, varied and well balanced, the fact that Jamil has special dietary requirements has never been a problem, Lisa provides filling meals and Jamil enjoys eating them!

Lisa's level of communication is fantastic! You are kept up to date with the use of a daily diary, Cheeky Chops website, Facebook and phone calls or text messages.

Jamil is always talking about what he has been doing at Cheeky Chops and where he has been. He talks about his friends and Lisa and Mark are always two of his favourite people to talk about. Jamil obviously enjoys going to Cheeky Chops, Lisa, Mark and the rest of the family have made us feel very welcome in their home right from the first visit.

We as a family highly recommed Lisa and Cheeky Chops, so much so that we already have Jamil's 5 week old baby brother's name down to start next year!

My daughter Amber has been attending cheeky chops for 2 days a week for almost 18 months and continues to thrive and develop through the ongoing support and care given by both lisa and her family.

Just prior to amber staring at cheeky chops i had returned to the area after living away and was very unsure about leaving her whist i returned to work. I also have a older daughter who was about to start school and felt slightly uneasy regarding all the change my family was going through. After visiting several nurserys and leaving amber at one for trial days, i was still incredibly uneasy and unsure regarding my desicion. A parent at my eldest daughters school gave me the number for cheeky chops and encouraged me to contact her. I did so and visited the following week, i immediatly felt settled and happy in lisas home and reassured by her caring and nurturing nature.

Amber settled very quickly and loves attending. The dedicated activity room is bright and educational, and throughout the year there is a variety of topics addressed and enjoyed. Cheeky chops is a more personal approach to childcare and i feel that amber is genuinly cared for whilst with the family.

Meals at cheeky chops are varied and healthy and amber enjoys trying new foods whilst with lisa. The family approach balances well with home life and i feel that the small groups enriches ambers development and behaviour.

Over the past year my eldest daughter, isabelle has also attended cheeky chops regular during the school holidays. The activitys are always planned and varied and are designed to stimulate and educate both the older children as well as the babies. Isabelle adores going to cheeky chops and genuinly sees lisa and her family as an extension of her own family.

My husband is currently serving in the army and has recently returned from afghanistan. My daughters struggle significantly when there daddys away and i feel that the care and stability recieved whilst in the care of lisa has made the past 7 months easier for them both.

I could not recommend cheeky chops highly enough and feel that anybody looking for a caring, warm and stimulating childminder should look no further than cheeky chops.

i would of been lost these past months without lisa and her family and appreciate evrything they have done for both me and my daughters.

Oliver celebrated his second anniversary at Cheeky Chops on 21st March 2013. He started at six months old and I couldn't be happier with the care received over the last two years. Being a single parent who works full time, it's the best feeling in the world to drop Oliver off in a morning knowing he's going to have an action packed and fun-filled day.

I really speak highly enough of Cheeky Chops. Lisa, her husband Mark and their three children are the nicest family you could ever wish to meet. Oliver loves each and every one of them dearly. Mark is also Ofsted Registered so should Lisa be off for any reason, Mark can step in. Their lovely house is in a nice area with beautiful enclosed garden for the children to enjoy outdoor play. The dedicated activity rooms are well equipped, providing children with diverse activities to assist with their learning and development. Oliver is always coming home with pictures, cards, crafts and baking. Oliver is a very inquisitive and adventurous little boy by nature who has a tendency to get bored if not stimulated but this is never the case at Cheeky Chops as they're always doing something fun and interesting.

I love the fact the children are taken on days out to places such as play centres, outdoor activity centres, farms, parks, libraries, children's centres - the list goes on. I truly believe trips like these enhance their development, behaviour and social skills whilst also being great fun. You just don't get this diversity of activities at a nursery.

I went to look around some nurseries before finding Cheeky Chops and was definitely not enamoured with the concept of sending Oliver to such an environment. Peace of mind is essential when entrusting your child's care to someone else and I just didn't have this feeling with the nurseries I viewed. Finding Cheeky Chops was the best thing that could have possibly happened. The care is more personal, far more interactive and adapted according to the requirements of each child, thus maximising their development.

The menu at Cheeky Chops is varied and well balanced and Oliver usually has second helpings of most meals!

The level of communication from Cheeky Chops is also exceptional. I receive an update on Oliver's day every night at collection time. I receive regular newsletters, photos and videos and can also keep up to date through the Cheeky Chops Facebook page. This is a great tool for our family too, enabling them to keep up to date with Oliver's progress, even though they don't see him as often as they'd like.

All of the Children in Lisa's care adore both her and her family. We parents struggle to get our children out of the door at collection time, which is true testament to just how much they love being at Cheeky Chops - they don't want to leave!

I truly can't recommend Cheeky Chops highly enough. We all want the best for our children and I've most definitely found it in terms of childcare. Oliver and I would be lost without Cheeky Chops.

If you're looking for a childminder who will love and care for your child as much as you do, then look no further.

Evie has been with Lisa For nearly a year now. The first time i bet Lisa i knew straight away that i wanted Evie to be at Cheeky Chops. I had looked around so many different Nurseries but Cheek Chops was definatly the one were i felt the most comfortable & happy to leave Evie in someone else's care. Her Husband Mark & 3 children are fantasic with all the children in Lisa's care & all are loved by Evie.

Evie absolutely loves going & every morning i tell her shes going to Lisa's she goes running for her shoes & coat & waits at the door ready to go :-)
Evie has come on so much since being there, with her talking & especially with her eating, before evie went to Lisa's her eating wasnt good at all & now shes like a different child, eating alot more & trying different things. Lisa is brilliant with all the children & i couldnt ask for a better childminder. She puts so much time & effort in what she does with the children, they go out for walks, to the park, play groups & centers, Messy play. Im very happy with Evie's development & she seems to learn something new everyday. We get a day to day diary of what they have done that day such as activities, naps & meal times. I enjoy getting home & reading it through to see what evie has been up to that day.
Lisa has made going to work alot easier knowing that Evie is well looked after, cared for & in a loving home. Highly recommend Cheekychops. I couldnt be happier. xxx
