Below are the latest reviews for Leigh. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Leigh is really child focused, incorporating the childrens wishes and feelings by maintaining structure but offering the children choice.

The children have great outdoor time and positive friendships are encouraged.

The friendly nature is second to none. I would use Leigh everytime to look after my son who is 7. It's hard to find a facility that puts you at ease as a parent and where your child's needs are fully focused on. Don't know how she manages to understand the children individually while making them feel equal as a group. But she does!

Thanku so much I genuinely love all the kids and try my best to be fair xx

Leigh is experienced, professional, patient and has a genuine love for children. Leigh has been our childminder for nearly 2 years and I highly recommend Leigh. Not only is Leigh an OFSTED registered childminder, she also goes over and above to get to know the children she looks after and offers a tailored approach working with the parents/guardians which is always helpful. My son often praises Leigh (firstly for her cooking skills!) and also for creating fun and exciting activities that the children can do. She also encourages the children when she can to travel to school by other means for exercise such as walking, bikes or scooters which again is very good for the children.
