Lesley has been looking after our daughter for over a year now and she also provides school holiday care for our 6 year old son, she is one of the best child care providers around. We had a dreadful experience with a local nursery when our son was little and when it came time to look for child care for our daughter it was really quite stressful and a worry as to where we would find good quality care and not repeat our experience previously. We shouldn't have worried as we found Lesley and she put all our worries to bed. On first meeting Lesley I just knew she was the one to look after our children. She's approachable, open, warm and caring to both of our children and works with our children and their needs and requirements. She has built a beautiful relationship with our daughter and she looks forward to a Wednesday when it's time to go to Lesley's house. Lesley has encouraged our daughter to be independent in all aspects of self care and various activities. She has worked with our son and encouraged his ability in letters, numbers, reading and writing. She has lots and lots of different activities from arts and crafts, attending groups, being outdoors and days out. Nothing seems to phase her and she will ask the children what they want to do and will do her very best to meet those needs and wants if she can. She really does provide a home from home environment and will welcome your child in to her own home as if it is their own. I promise you will not find better than this lady as she is one of, if not the best, in child care provision around! :)

Lynsey thank you for that wonderful review I had a tear and a lump in my throat as I read it. Its so lovely to be appreciated and I'm so glad that you are happy and can go to work in the knowledge that i will take good care of your little treasures.. It is a pleasure to look after your children who are a credit to you both.. I love my job and not many people can say that. Thanks again Lesley xx

Lesley has been looking after my little boy for 18 months now, he is a happy little boy who just loves going to "wesweys". It's a great environment where Lesley plans each day to include educational and fun activities, attending groups and socialising with other children. Lots of outdoor activities as well as arts and crafts. Lesley keeps me up to date with a daily diary and lots of pictures on face book.
Lesley a genuinely lovely lady who provides brilliant care and as a mum makes it easy for me to go to work and not worry about my little boy.
