I have a very energetic little boy who is nearly two and elaine has looked after him since he was 6 months old! She is laid back and good natured. Louie loves going to see Elaine and her children and I could not have picked anyone more trustworthy than elaine to look after my son when I returned to my nurses training. She has been extremely flexible. I am sad to see her go!! :(

Elaine has looked after my 9 month old daughter Layla since i first went back to work at the start of July. As a single parent in the Armed Forces I wasn't looking forward to leaving Layla with a stranger after spending the first 7 months of life with her. Elaine soon made me feel at ease and i realised after meeting her and her family that Layla was in very safe/good hands!
Layla settled in really well and enjoys being there. She's always happy and content when I pick her up.

Elaine keeps a daily diary, so that i know when she's been fed, changed, had naps and what activities she has done during the day.
Elaine has also been really understanding with some of the timings i've had to stick to because of work commitments.

We'll be sad to leave, and I now worry that i wont find anyone as suitable as Elaine has been. I will always compare! I just hope she now finds someone to fill out slot!

Thank you Elaine!
Lyndsey and Layla

Elaine has been a childminder to my two girls for over 5 years and took them both through their Junior school years. Both my girls loved the time they spent with Elaine and her family and I had no worries on leaving the children in her care.

My children attended on a before and after school basis and then full time during the school holidays as needed. Elaine is very caring , trustworthy and dependable. Her flexibility enabled me to work with out worrying if I was a few minutes late to pick up the girls. Elaine was always willing to help out at short notice when life events happen.

Elaine always ensures the children have activities to do such as painting and art. When going on holiday or if she was off sick she would always look for alternative childcare for the children through other childminders in the area.

I would highly recommend Elaine as a childminder. She has enabled me to work almost full time and know that my girls are well cared for.When Elaine left to move to Aldershot the girls were really upset as Elaine has made them part of the family.

I have a 5 year old girl and 3 year old boy Elaine looked after my little girl since she was 7 months old and has been my childminder for both kids until her recent move. Elaine has a lovely relaxed feel to her home, where I knew that my children were being well looked after. Since Elaine has moved away I have not been able to find anyone as suitable and have since given up full time employment.

Best wishes
Linda Leonard
