Gaynor is definitely a type of person you can trust to leave your child with! Gaynor is always helpful, flexible and reliable.Always good communication so can be sure what's planned ahead in regards to hols/payments etc.All sort of great ideas for fun with kids ,she always seems to be organised as well.
My daughter stays at playhouse for the last 2 years and I have never been disappointed with the service that Gaynor provides.Pictures and daily sheet provided throughout the time the child stays at the playhouse so that gives additional comfort to parents.
Gaynor always in fully engaged with all sort of play/games/singing and reading time plus time to time offering a nice treat so my daughter loves it up there.X

Thanku Justyna.. Sophia is a little Dolly πŸ’“

Gaynor was highly recommended to me by a friend of mine. I was going back to work so I got in touch with Gaynor and we went to meet her, we have never looked back. My daughter was 8 months old when she first started going to Gaynors and is nearly 6 years old now and still loves going there just as much. As a first time mum I was worried about leaving my baby with someone and going back to work full time. Gaynor made it so much easier for me, just knowing that Grace was safe, happy and content made the transition much easier to adapt to. Gaynor sends me photos of Grace through the day and also gives daily sheets so I know what she has eaten, how long she had slept etc. Gaynor also follows whatever routine yoou ask her to with nap times etcThey are always doing fun actives and Grace's development skills in all areas definately benefited, including trying new foods ☺️. I genuinely can't speak highly enough of Gaynor and her lovely family and think of them as part of our extended family.

Thank you Katie ❀️ your princess is going to be 6 years old wow 🀩 fab memories over the years of Gracie x

Gaynor is the best childminder the parent could wish for. My children absolutely love going over to the Playhouse. Gaynor is very professional well organised, friendly and caring. She is a perfect childminder, has fantastic ideas, knows how to develop children abilities by playing. We worked with few childminders in the past and Gaynor is best by far! I . I know that in Playhouse they are in best possible hands. highly recommend her services I can't imagine leaving children with anyone else.

Thank you ula so kind .. love looking after little k & v xxxx

We have been using Gaynor for almost 2 years, we could not imagine life without her now! She is absolutely wonderful & fabulous with all the children she cares for. My daughter loves going to Gaynors and always has from the very first time we met her. Because of Gaynor and her wonderful activities & care my daughter has come on leaps & bounds, she is very advanced for her age her speech, counting and drawing is all great and that is because of Gaynor. I would highly recommend Gaynor, she is amazing!!

Aw thank you Kirsty x Darcie is a joy to look after & a proper process πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I have been using playhouse childminders for a year . Gaynor's been a god send.. my son has learnt so much since he started coming here. We get a lot of people commenting how good his speech and social skills are for his age. If you are looking for quality childcare i would highly recommend using gaynor at playhouse childminders
