Louise looked after our son for about 2.5 years and 10 month old daughter for a few months before we sadly moved and had to find another childminder. Finding a childminder was a bit of a minefield but we knew we wanted our children to be looked after in a caring family home and that is exactly what we got with Louise. We cannot recommend Louise highly enough, our son had a wonderful time with her and had it not been for moving house our children would still go to her. Louise also always went out of her way to help, picking up an extra day here or there if she could. We will miss taking the children to Louise and will definitely stay in touch and as mentioned before, we cannot recommend her highly enough.

Louise looked after our son almost full time for just over a year. He was 13 months old when he started and he has flourished in her care. We can't thank her enough for all she has done for our family.
She is very caring, patient and calm with the children and her house is set up extremely well for both indoor and outdoor play. She has lots of outings, activities including messy play, story time and crafts. She has been very flexible in terms of late drop offs and always happy to accommodate the odd early morning drop off and/or a late pick up. She helped us stick to his low sugar dietary requirements and also helped us with potty training, with great success. Our son took to her immediately and was always very excited to arrive at her house in the mornings.

Thank you so much Louise! we all miss you... x

Louise has been looking after our 4 year old twin boys for almost a year now and has been very supportive and adaptable to our needs. Louise can always be relied on to help us and tries her very best to fit in with our requirements.

Louise is very calm and patient with the children and the setting is in a relaxed and homely environment. We have been very happy with Louise because we feel that the children already do lots of activities at school, so when Louise collects them she usually has a calming activity planned for them such as arts and crafts, baking or going for a walk.

Our boys enjoying mixing with the other children, playing with the toys and playing in the back garden all year round (the garden is set up in a very child friendly way). The whole setting is very clean and tidy.

Louise has looked after our little boy since he was 11months old and he absolutely loves his time with her. Louise is a friendly and trustworthy person who makes sure that the children have a fun filled day come rain or shine.

Commuting every day is always stressful, but Louise is extremely understanding if one of us gets stuck on the trains, it is nice to know our little boy is in safe hands and if you need to contact her she will be in touch straight away.

Louise has a lovely play room and garden which are both fully equipped with toys and games and is regularly out and about with the children, which we know our little one loves. It is such a nice feeling to know we are picking up a very happy boy at the end of the day.

My daughter was in Louise's care for just over 3 years, from the age of 18 months until she started Reception just before her 5th birthday, this year.
My daughter adored Louise and loved being in her care.
Louise regularly took the children to Bernard's Heath to use the playground and run around on the field there, and also took them to Verulanium Park, weather permitting.
The playroom is always stocked with things for the children to do and her garden is fantastic as it has artificial grass enabling the children to play outside all year round.
Louise is a lovely person who genuinely has deep affection for the children she looks after.
My daughter was extremely sad to leave in July this year.
