Sam was recommended to us for our 8 year old daughter who wasn't enjoying the out of hours care at her new school. We arranged to visit Sam at her home, and my daughter was very nervous and worried about it, but as soon as we arrived she brightened up and her worries disappeared! Sam and all her family are lovely, welcoming people and make you feel at ease right away. Having only ever experienced large nurseries it was new for both my daughter and me, but after chatting with Sam and talking things through I was completely happy to go ahead and book the space-and it was the best decision I have made since moving here! My daughter LOVES to go to Sam's and always enjoys herself, and I am thrilled that I can be confident and have absolutely no doubts that she is being cared for brilliantly. It will be a sad day when she doesn't need Sam anymore!

When I first approached Sam, I was looking for someone to care for my then 5year old son before and after school. After speaking to her on the phone, then reading through her info pack, I arranged to visit her to see what the environment was like. I was blown away with the set up-Sam had done wonders with the environment both indoors and out! I came away really excited and very happy that I'd found the right place for my son (who has sen issues-this didn't worry Sam at all). When we got home, I immediately called my husband at work to tell him how fantastic Sam was in the flesh! I told him I was unhappy about the decision we'd made to put our younger child into nursery, and that I felt she would have much better care wi Sam... So I made the call to Sam to book not just our son, but our daughter in to her care. Our daughter had been with Sam full time since she was 22 months...and yesterday spent her last full time day there, as she starts school in September! However, Sam can't get rid of us easily... The children will both return in September,her for before and after school care, and baby no.3 is already booked into Sam's wonderful setting. Our whole family love her, her family, and everything she does. Call her :)
