We are delighted with the wonderful care Regina and Claire provide our daughter with. We chose them because they are kind, supportive, encouraging and nurturing of our daughter and the other children’s needs. Our daughter really enjoys being with them both and I love the relationship they have with her and the children in their care. We chose a childminder over a Nursery as we like that our daughter is taken out to the park, for a walk, soft play and to the shops etc. Providing her with real life experiences which is what I would do if I were at home. It’s a home from home environment where is happy, safe , well cared for and because of this she is learning. They always provide a diary of what our daughter has done, eaten, played with and her toileting habits for the day which is very useful. Seeing the progress she has made is fantastic and it’s great to celebrate her different milestones together. We love the various things she creates when she is there and our daughter has made some super friends too.
We would highly recommend Regina and Claire as they have such positive relationships with both the children and parents that naturally the children flourish in their care.

We could not be happier with the care, attention and excellent stimulation that Regina and Claire provide for our daughter. From the very beginning, we have found them both to be warm, open and utterly professional. They sought to establish a positive relationship with our daughter straightaway, and they managed her transition to a new setting expertly.

As a result, our daughter has a lovely bond with both of them, and very much enjoys being there (so much so she was asking to see them over the Christmas holidays!) It is also really clear that they provide an excellent learning environment. Since she has started with them, her language has really developed and it is clear they have challenged her to learn songs, count and most of all improved her manners! It’s clear that they work hard to support her learning as an individual but they also ensure she develops really positive social interactions with the other children their care. In addition, they provide a range of activities in the local area; it’s always really nice to hear when they’ve been out to the park, and the local soft play. They clearly do a lot of different activities with the children both in and out of the home and we feel our daughter comes home happy and just the right amount of tired after a stimulating day with them.

We can state all above confidently because their communication with us as parents is excellent. They have a daily diary so we always know what they’ve done and how she’s been. But this is in addition to this, they always take the time to have a friendly chat at pick up where they fill us in about the day and it’s very much appreciated. It was also lovely to see her larger learning journal which was sent home over the holidays for a more detailed look at how she’s meeting targets.

We can honestly and confidently say that Regina and Claire are truly excellent at what they do and we are so grateful that they take such fantastic care of our daughter. We trust them entirely with her safety, development and well-being and really value the warm, caring environment they provide.

From the moment I made my initial enquiry I felt confident I could leave my daughter with Regina and Claire and she would be safe, happy and stimulated. I was reassured by Regina’s professionalism, we met and Regina showed me where the children are looked after. Regina talked me through their planning, policies and approach to childminding in detail. Both Regina and Claire spent time playing with my daughter with me there. They asked me lots of questions about her likes and dislikes, the ways I settle her and her routines. I felt I was really listened to. Regina often uses the phrase, ‘we’ll be guided by you.’ Knowing our parenting approach is valued by Regina and Claire is something we really appreciate. It certainly made it easier to leave her when she was just 10 months old.

Our daughter’s personal development has come on leaps and bounds since she has been attending childminding sessions. She is so happy when we take her in the mornings, we know she is having a brilliant time.
They have so many lovely toys, activities and ideas to develop our daughter's knowledge and understanding of the world. We also really appreciate that they take the children out to the nature reserve or parks and spend lots of time in the garden too.

Regina and Claire have shared all of our daughter's successes with us by sending us pictures, writing us notes in a daily diary and tracking her progress in a lovely learning journal. We love their positive approach and good humour when she does something new or achieves her next milestone.

Although we are extremely grateful for all the hard work, careful planning that go into ensuring our daughter is stimulated and rapidly learning so many new skills, I think what we are most thankful for is simply how safe and happy she is under the care of Regina and Claire. Our daughter's sunny nature, positive self esteem, confidence and resilience are what I am most grateful to Regina and Clare for developing. The fact she has learnt so many new skills along the way is a reflection of the loving and nurturing ethos Regina and Claire have created that underpins their childminding service.

Regina has been looking after my son since he was 9 months old (he is now 3) and Regina and Claire have been looking after my daughter as well since she was 6 months old (she is now 20 months). They couldn't be more welcoming. It is a home from home environment.

I couldn't be happier with the childcare that my children are receiving, being looked after by Regina and Claire. Regina's house is well equipped and is a great setting. She feeds my children health meals and snacks. My children are thriving in her setting. She spends time with each of them, understanding their needs, and helps them to grow and develop. My son loves learning and Regina teaches him through play and they have great fun. They both love playing with the other children at Regina's. Regina and Claire provide me with a detailed daily diary of activities that have taken place. They enjoy regular walks to the nature reserve and do yoga, drawing with chalk and stamps, they observe different festivals, play and learn about different textures, they learn numbers, colours, sounds and dance. They care so much for every child they look after.

My children look forward to seeing Regina every day and are so happy, and I can see how much they are learning and developing in her care. I am delighted with how my children have grown with Regina, she is a wonderful childminder.

Regina is a very nice lady, with a large, clean house that has a great playroom/classroom that leads out onto a large garden . She does a lot with her children as 2 year olds can count to 20 and recognise numbers, shapes, colours and A-Z letters. She does crafts, cooking, singing, maths, reads to them and goes on regular nature walks in the nature reserve near her house. She has a cheerful, fun personality and the children model this in happy, good behaviour.
