Sheila looked after our daughter Joella for almost 2 years. Our daughter was well looked after .we had no concerns. We are very lucky that we found Sheila .She is simply the best! She welcomed our daughter and treated her like family. She makes all the children feel so welcomed / sense of belonging, that has helped our daughter with her confidence and development esp being there with other children young and old and it’s really nice seeing her with them all and creating such wonderful bonds. She regularly updates us with her progress and recent activities through face to face , progress tracking book and whatsapp .She has a range of activities/toys and took our daughter places such as to playgroups.. Sheila was also very flexible and reliable. She had on so many occasions helped us when my husband got stuck in traffic from work.
We have never had any doubt about our daughter's safety when she was with Sheila. We would highly recommend Sheila to anyone who is looking for trusthworthy and reliable childminder . Thanks for everything Sheila.

Sheila K has been caring for both our children for a few years now. Even when my 3 year old was away for an interim he fondly remembered her and had no adjustment issues when he returned.
She offers a friendly and professional warm caring environment to the children in her care and provides freshly prepared nutritious meals.
The care offered is to a very high standard and I highly recommend this setting.

Sheila is such a God send for me. My little girl, Ella has been going to her since she was a year old and she is now 4 years. Ella adores Sheila, always excited to see her and never wants to leave (seriously!) I feel Sheila offers a safe, caring and stimulating environment for the kids. I always wanted a childminder as opposed to a nursery but I feel my baby gets the best of both worlds as Sheila makes the effort to take the children to playgroups and other play areas where they mix and interact. Sheila has gone out of her way many times for me and my daughter - I am so pleased I found her, as she makes my life easier knowing that my baby is really in good hands. She is so good that when I move, I still travelled over an hour to bring my little one to her. I really cannot recommend Sheila enough.

We have been using Sheila for a number of years now for two of our boys and we have always been more than happy with the excellent service she provides and have never had any concerns. Whenever we leave our youngest with her, we are 100% satisfied that they are being left in a safe secure environment and will be well looked after. We have always had complete peace of mind when leaving our boys with Sheila and would highly recommend her.
