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.

Our daughter started at Peaches and Pears full time when she was one (she's now 2 and a half) and I've been delighted with the service they provide.

As it's run by a family, there's a lovely family atmosphere with children of all ages playing and learning together. The activities children get involved in are really interesting and creative and there's also regular outings to parks, woods, libraries, and play activities. The team are really committed to caring for the children and are always coming up with new ways to help them learn and develop. There's also a big emphasis on social skills.

Whenever I've had any issues at home that have affected her, they've been really happy to provide support, advice and to take actions in the setting that support what you're trying to do at home e.g. with tooth brushing or how to start potty training.

Our daughter has really thrived here and it's been wonderful to know that she's so well cared for and gets to take part in such a variety of interesting and fun activities. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Peaches and Pears to others.

Our son attended Peaches and Pears for a year, from age one to two. During that time he really got to bond with some of the carers there and enjoyed his time thoroughly, quite often he didn't want to leave at the end of the day!

It's a well run family business that provides well thought out activities to stimulate the children. The carers were always accommodating and flexible when required, and for that we're very grateful. I would not hesitate to recommend Peaches and Pears to local families requiring a safe and caring environment for their little ones.

Thank you for all your help, best wishes, Sam and Shazia.

Peaches and Pears provide a fantastic, warm family environment for the children they look after. My daughter loves going there and has benefited enormously from the attentive care and being around children of different ages.

They always do range of interesting, creative activities with the children and take them to local parks, libraries and playgroups. It’s great to get the daily diary outlining all activities, meals, sleep etc which is really useful.

They make healthy and varied home cooked meals and often do baking with the children which they love. Peaches and Pears are very proactive about teaching children manners and they focus on encouraging positive values. They provide detailed and comprehensive learning and development updates and take great care to keep children’s artwork and record their progress. They always have time to talk to you about your child and are interested in all aspects of their development.

Peaches and Pears are absolutely wonderful, we couldn’t be happier with them and are very happy to have found them. We always recommend them to friends.

We love Peaches and Pears. Without a doubt the best decision we made for our family was to put our first daughter with P+P. She has had a wonderful three years with them and we've now just added our twins as we are so delighted with the care and warm atmosphere.

The family work really well to ensure that the children are happy and developing, play is structured and progresses children well. Most importantly they are all really happy and enjoy the support they get from the whole family.

Our children really enjoy each day, come on really well and have developed manners I'm sure we didn't teach them. We love Peaches and Pears and can't thank them enough for being so great with/for our family. Our girls will remain P+P kids their whole lives! Thanks again. Ben

Brilliant familial atmosphere at Peaches and Pears - family of childminders provides cosy caring setting for babies and toddlers/preschool. Small mixed age group means that children learn from their peers and older children, like siblings do. Lots of creative, gently educative play, trips out etc. Proper varied and healthy homecooked hot meals - we couldn't ask for more. Our daughter adored her time at Peaches and Pears.
