If you are looking for a professional, caring, warm and nurturing childminder in Ashby look no further!
Our daughter started with Sophie just after her 1st birthday when I returned to work in April 2020 and has absolutely loved her time so far.
It was so important to my husband and I that we found a childminder that ticked every box and Sophie does that and more.
We get regular updates/photo's throughout the day which always make my day as I can see all of the wonderful things they get up too.
As soon as our daughter Iris was walking she was happily walking into Sophie's house in the morning, will give Sophie a big hug and then happily wave goodbye to me as I leave, she is also full of smiles when I pick her up at the end of the day.
Like most Mommies after a year off I wasn't sure how I would feeI however I had no anxiety going back to work. Sophie made the whole process so easy and reassuring, it has been an absolute dream
Sophie is very passionate and extremely professional and we feel very lucky to have found her!

Sophie welcomed our little boy Evan in to her home in September 2017 and we couldn't be happier with how well it's going. She has made going back to work so much easier knowing that he is in such a great place. The activities Sophie does with the boys are so varied and fun and opening up his backpack and finding little bits of artwork is just so lovely. Her daily diaries are brilliant and so personal. She always celebrates the great things he has done during the day and let's us know when he has been feeling sensitive and needed extra cuddles. The more detailed monthly development records are just brilliant and we get to see lots of photos and notes about how well he's doing.
Sophie has been so flexible which is really important to us as Evan's daddy works shifts.
We are a bilingual Spanish/English family and Sophie has incorporated Spanish words in to their activities, making a Spanish counting wall and even finding a Spanish group to take the boys to.
We are over the moon that we found Sophie and we hope Evan can continue to stay with Sophie as he grows!

Response by Sophie on 05/02/2018:

Thank you so much. You are all a wonderful family and Evan is a pleasure to care for!
I am over the moon that you are happy with everything! 😀 x

Our son has been going to Sophie's for a couple of months now and we couldn't be happier with the care he's getting. He's well looked after and Sophie is contributing greatly to his development. Sophie's daily reports keep us fully informed and enable us all to track developmental milestones and behaviours. Our son has formed a great bond with Sophie's son, which is lovely to see. We couldn't recommend Sophie highly enough.
