review of Sherry Maple - Childminder in Aylesbury
Very conscientious childminder
Sherry has cared for my daughter since she was 6 months old and we have been with her for nearly 2 years now. When we started she was very quick to establish a good relationship with her and provided extra sessions so that she could settle in. Whenever I arrive at her home it's always an upbeat happy environment and the children are always busy playing together.
My daughter is well fed with breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks. Sherry has a really varied toy collection that the children can access themselves and she always encourages good behaviour in all the children in her care in a positive way. In the spring and summer they spend lots of time playing safely in the garden. As soon as we first visited, Sherry was very transparent in telling me all her comprehensive experience working with Harrow Borough Council in a consultant capacity and all of her qualifications and experience. This gave me a lot of peace of mind about her ability and what I could expect. Sherry is always happy to provide information about the children’s naps, nappies, meals, how they have got on and what they've been doing whenever we drop off or pick up the children and she is always happy to advise us about any questions on children's health or social development. She is always genuinely interested to hear about my daughter's development and often chats with us before and after the care.
Sherry has not had even one day of sickness during my time with her – she is really reliable. Lots of notice is given of holidays. Her setting is always really clean, ordered and welcoming and she made several updates to ensure her setting was safe and clean since we've been with her. She speaks to the children in a caring and supportive manner.
The children also love to play with Sherry’s helper-husband Gary who is always full of fun and energy with them.and the children love his sunny disposition.
I do not hesitate to recommend Sherry to anyone looking for childcare in Aylesbury. Her setting has been a home from home for my daughter which is just what we were looking for.
