Average Rating: 5 stars (5 from 11 reviews)

Sherry is the most amazing childminder and I cannot recommend her enough. I had to go back to work when my daughter was 6 months old which I found very difficult. However I immediately felt at ease leaving her with Sherry and Gary. Sherry has been amazing at supporting me whilst I was still breastfeeding, through weaning and introducing formula when I was ready.
The house is always very clean and all the children are happy when in Sherry’s care. There are always fun and interactive activities for the children and Sherry takes a keen interest in helping with the children’s development. Offering appropriate advice to parents as well.
I am relocating to another part of the UK and feel very sad that my daughter has to leave. I hope I find another childcare provider as outstanding as Sherry. Highly recommended!

My daughter has been attending Sherry and Gary’s since just after her first birthday, and she has been there for just over two years now. She absolutely loves attending and often asks to go in her days off or over weekends. Sherry and Gary have felt like part of the family and myself and my husband are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us, making the transition going back to work very smooth. We couldn’t have asked for a better childcare provider. They really are Outstanding.
As soon as we met Sherry we felt very comfortable with the clean and organised environment. The children are always playing happily together.
Sherry is extremely reliable and has never had a day off sick in the two years we have used her, she gives notice of her holidays for the upcoming year in plenty of time and always keeps us up to date on any news.
She provides healthy and home cooked lunches as well as breakfast and snacks. It’s nice knowing my daughter eats properly there, as she is extremely fussy at home.
We are extremely sad to be moving on to preschool soon and will miss them a lot, as will my daughter.

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.

Sherry and her husband Gary made us feel at ease from the start. We had looked at nurseries and a lot of Childminder's but when we met Sherry we knew he'd be really happy there. Her house was always clean and toys are well organized with something for everyone. I was so pleased that she also took the children on days out which he loved.
Sherry has always been so reliable she's not had one sick day since we started with her. She's always been great too whenever Louie was poorly. I knew he'd be looked after like one of her family.
Sherry supported us with his routine and throughout potty training etc which was great in keeping consistency for him.
Louie has been so happy in their care and has a great relationship with both of them as do myself and my husband. We will be really sorry to loose them. They have both been flexible and very understanding.

I couldn't recommend Sherry & her husband Gary more highly. My son has been with her since he was 11 months old & my daughter started when she was a similar age two years later. They have always been so comfortable in their care; never any problems dropping them off, they race straight in & start playing! They particularly enjoy playing in the garden, playing pirates & trains. Sherry has a huge range of toys & plans activities around the children's interests. Their Early Years folders are a superb record of the progress they've made in their care. I am extremely grateful to them both for making my childcare such an easy process.

Our daughter Amelia has been with Sherry for just over a year, from 10 months old. I had to go back to work, firstly on part time basis - and then full time. Sherry was understanding & accomodating of our change in circustamnces & supported us through this transition.

Amelia is our first & only child & the decison of her daycare was a long & thoughtful process. I had been to 3 other childminders & as soon as I walked into Sherry's setting- I immedialtely felt at ease....I just knew my little girl would love it there & thrive!

Sherry has been a constant & valuable source of advice & care for Amelia. I am ever so grateful for the kindness & care shown to my daughter - not just by Sherry - but also her husband Gary & daughter Sophie.

I strongly recommend & am very thankful for all Sherry has done for our family.

Sherry has cared for our two boys for almost three years, both from age 11 months. She was quick to establish a good relationship with them both. They have always been happy for Mum/ Dad to leave in the morning. They are always busy playing happily when we return in the afternoon. This assures us that they are well cared for and happy.
They are well fed with breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks. She has a super toy collection that the children can access themselves. In the spring and summer they spend lots of time playing safely in the garden. Sherry s happy to provide all information about the children’s naps, nappies, meals, moods, etc whenever we drop off or pick up the children.
Sherry has not had even one day of sickness or absence during our time with her – she is really reliable. Lots of notice is given of holidays. Her setting is always really clean, ordered and welcoming. She speaks to the children in a caring and supportive manner.
All the children also love to play with Sherry’s helper-husband Garry who is always full of fun and energy with them.
For these reasons I would not hesitate to recommend Sherry to anyone looking for childcare in Harrow Weald. It has been a home from home for our children which is just what we wanted to nurture our very young boys.

Shay absolutely loves going to Sherry and Gary each day.

Oliver has been cared for by Sherry for 3 years, from the age of 6 months. Oliver has loved his time there and has never not wanted to go.He has always got his shoes ready on Sherry days. As a toddler he would cry when it was not a sherry day. Oliver calls Sherry and Gary " my Sherry and my Gary ". As parents we have been very pleased with the care provided and the friendliness of Sherry and Gary. We wanted Oliver to be happy when we are at work and he certainly has been. The reason that we are moving Oliver is for him to be at Nusery School in Buckinghamshire where we live. If you want a caring and friendly environment for your child then contact Sherry.

I have been fortunate to have found Sherry in 2006 to care for my eldest son who was 10 months at the time. As a first time mum, I needed as much reassurance as my child! Sherry was perfect for us.

My second son joined her care in 2008 at the age of 4 months and she still cares for my children after school and in school holidays.

Sherry is a very experienced, professional childminder, who will go the extra mile at all times. She has a natural ability with children (and animals!) and cares for little ones with the utmost patience and love. She is always updating her skills and very good at keeping up with changes in the curriculum, I have no hesitation is recommending Sherry.
