Our son has been going to P&P for nearly 2 years and he loves it. He gets on brilliantly with all the staff, not just his key worker and he looks forward to his days there. This is a warm and loving environment where children are genuinely cared for, there have been numerous occasions where staff have gone above and beyond what is the standard level of care.
The staff are all highly skilled and professional and we have seen our boy develop an excellent grasp of numeracy and literacy from a young age. He enjoys all the daily activities which are wide and varied- creative play, baking, visiting local children’s centres, parks and libraries etc. It is a social environment and he has made lots of friends. I am also impressed by how sympathetic and flexible they are to each child’s needs.
We also appreciate that they make healthy home cooked meals and snacks!
Our family would highly recommend P&P to anyone
Our daughter has been attending Peaches and Pears for over 18 months and absolutely loves it. They do loads of really fun activities; baking, mud kitchen, painting, reading, singing and go out on lots of little trips; playgrounds, woodland walks, stay and plays, library, blackberry picking! Our daughter always comes home having learnt all sorts of new things, with lots of exciting stories about what she and all her friends have been doing. They are really helpful with tips on how to handle new phases e.g. potty training, changes in naps etc... I'm so glad we found them!
Peaches and Pears looked after our son from the age of 1 until the age of 2. Unfortunately he had to leave as our circumstances changed. All the family were very caring and sensible. We still use Zahra as a babysitter sometimes. They took the children out a lot which I liked and were practical and supportive. I would highly recommend them. They also recently had the facilities upgraded so it is better than the description above and they have an outside yard with toys. They were also very flexible with extra days when they had the capacity which was very helpful for us.
My daughter joined Peaches and Pears when she was 14 months (she is now almost 3) and she absolutely loves it.
It is a family run childminders, and this is reflected in the environment which is warm, welcoming and nurturing. They do lots of stimulating and fun activities with the children both at the house and in the local area including arts and crafts, marking making, park visits and baking.
One of the things I find the most valuable is that each child has a diary where they document what your child has done that day, what they have eaten and if they have slept. They also provide a school pick up service which my son (aged 5) attends a couple of days a week. Being able to have my children in the same childcare setting is not only very helpful in a practical sense, but also means they share more time together.
I would absolutely recommend Peaches and Pears to others.
We're so glad we found Peaches and Pears for our son who has been going for nearly eighteen months now, since the age of one.
It is a caring, nurturing environment that we believe strongly aids his personal, social and educational development.
Above all he is always very happy to go there and comes home with a big smile on his face every day.
Would highly recommend.
