Below are the latest reviews for Vernay. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Vernay was our childminder for about 6 months (as I was setting up my own childcare business). She looked after my son Evan (aged 3).
She engaged him in many activities & so much learning. He still talks about his trip to see the Queen 6 months later.
His writing & penmanship came on leaps and bounds.
He simply adored Vernay, as did we. She very quickly becomes part of you family & we were so lucky to have found her. If I had not gone into childminding myself, then my son would definitely still be with her!

Vernay was recommended to me by a friend initially, I interviewed serveral people and chose Vernay because she came across down to earth and kind, with a warm welcoming home. That was in 2006, and we are still using Vernay 11 years later.
Jamie started with Vernay at 3 months, and Theo started at 9 months. I have always been comfortable leaving them and they have always been happy to stay.
Vernay does so much with them from baby up to 11 and always makes sure they're occupied and involved. From playgroups, to day trips, parks, farms, softplay, playing in the snow, paddling pool, hooking a duck, parties, endless books, jigsaws and games.
The thing I love most though is how happy and comfortable my children are with her, like family and a home from home.
I don't like calling Vernay my childminder as I feel it doesn't reflect her role in my children's lives. I honestly don't think there would have been a better person to look after / help raise my children.

Vernay has been looking after my son since he was 9 months old and he has recently turned 3. Vernay offers a stimulating , fun and nurturing environment which my son has thrived in. Each day they go to different clubs, classes or take part in fun activities, he always come showing me different pieces of arts and crafts he has had fun creating. Vernay loves taking the children outside especially to different farms and her allotment , just yesterday he came home with carrots, runner brand and corn on the cob which he had picked earlier that day.
I would highly recommend Vernay she is fun, professional, very reliable and willing to work flexible to meet our needs!
