Sonia and Tiago took care of my daughter from age 5 months until 9 months old and are wonderful people, they are patient, professional and very understanding, my daughter always enjoyed being in their care and I felt comfortable in knowing she was well looked after and well fed, I definitely reccommend them to any parent looking for childcare.

I have met childminder Tiago and his lovely family,we received a very warm welcome.The premises are safe, very clean and all toys and games incredibly tidy and organized.My daughter felt at home straight away and enjoyed her time spent there (She asked me if she could go every day!).A variety of games and educational entertainment is offered and we loved the fact that visits to the park,museums, leisure center and more fun things are all included in the childcare package,incredible value for money for an amazing childcare provider.Highly recommended.
