Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for HeatherGr. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Our daughter has been going to Heather for over a year now, and she is very settled and happy here. She jumps out of her pushchair every morning when we arrive and stands at the door ready to start the day. At the end of the day when we go to collect her she always has a great big smile on her face. They go a music group once a week, which my daughter loves, and they also spend time each day reading and looking through books. My daughter is very happy coming to Heather and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a childminder.

Heather has looked after our daughter (2yrs) since she was only a few months old. We have been very happy with the care and appreciate in particular the steady routine Heather established with her and the support with our daughters learning. We are also very grateful for Heather's flexibility and helpfulness in accommodating occasional changes to our schedule. Our child always seems to like her very much and to enjoy spending the day at her house.

Our son has been with heather since he was 5 months old. I always feel at ease knowing he is in heathers care, whilst I go to work. He enjoys all the activities, especially the music class. When we come to collect him, he always has a big smile on his face so we know he enjoys being there. We could not recommend heather highly enough!

Our daughter (now 11 months) has been with Heather for over six months now and we have been very happy with the child care. Heather is extremely reliable and conscientious and has helped us out a lot by being flexible and accommodating. Our child always seems happy and content when coming home from her child minder. Heather makes sure she does things with my daughter that she enjoys, such as musical toys and singing.

My son Edward, 9 months, has been with Heather for over 3 months now and we are very happy with her work. Edward is happy to be left with her and i have no doubt is happy all day with her.

I find her very easy to get on with and know she gives 100% attention to Edward throughout her day. Her home is warm, friendly and clean and i would have no hesitation is recommending her to anyone looking for a childminder.
