So joining the claireypoppins family has been the very best decision that we have made.
Claire doesn’t just run a wonderful child care setting, she welcomes each child into a wonderful extended family where everyone is valued and cared for. Her early years provision is AMAZING my little boy loved using his 3yr old funding with claire, and my daughter loves to go to Claire’s before and after school. This is a very special place and I am very grateful to have found her.

Clairey Poppins really is like a Mary Poppins.
She genuinely cares about the children in her care and they are more than just her business, they are like a family unit. She is fun and engaging, my son has come along well and he loves being with claire. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend her as a child minder and i feel very relaxed that my son is in great care.

Claire took a good care of my 6year old son , my son really enjoyed been at Clairepoppins childminding as he had lots of fun activites after his school and also during his school half term holidays.
She is warm, friendly and welcoming, and really helped our don settle into school life. She was looking after a nice small group of similar aged children, and in their afternoons they did lots of arts, crafts, games etc together. We would definitely recommend her!
