Catherine is the loveliest, most caring, and best childminder ever! We are so so lucky to have her!
My son has been going to Catherine for a couple of years now, and my daughter also attends for school drop offs.
Nothing is ever too much trouble for Catherine, she treats the children as one of her own, and I love the bond that my son and Catherine have. Both my children love her.
They do lots of activities in her wonderful play room and have lovely days out too. Catherine is so creative with her ideas and engaging the children. I love the photos I get each day showing me all the fun they have had and the diary too.
I would 100% recommend Catherine to anyone!

I was recommended to Catherine by another mum when I decided to return to work after having a few years off with my youngest.

My son absolutely adores her. She was so wonderful with all the children she looked after and it did feel like a home from home for him.

Catherine’s own children were a delight and she would always have things planned for the day from baking, messy play walks to the park etc.

It was a sad time when my son went to secondary school and no longer needed looking after. We both have very fond memories and photographs of all the things they would get up too.

She holds a special place in our hearts and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, she is a pure gem and nothing is ever too much for her x

I was looking to return to work after extended maternity leave and I visited a few local childminders but couldn’t really find one that I felt comfortable leaving my baby with. Being a qualified NNEB myself I knew exactly what to look for so when I visited Cath I knew she was the one!!! My daughter was very clingy and didn’t like to go to anyone, but she instantly look a liking to Cath, as we all did. She helped my clingy baby develop into the social little bundle of joy she is now (aged 7).
Nothing was too much trouble for Cath and she certainly went above and beyond for our family, it was a very sad day when we no longer needed her services, after 3 and a half years.
She is an outstanding childminder and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder.
