Below are the latest reviews for Elaine. 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.

My daughter has been with Elaine since she was 6th months old (she is now almost 4) and she absolutely adores her, it will be a very sad day when she finally has to leave, for both me and my daughter.

Elaine is outstanding in her field and shows great dedication and care for all the children in her care. She makes what would seemily be a crazy enviiroment at times seem calm and relaxed and all the children in her care are given the tools to explore and learn a huge amount of varied and exciting activities.

Elaine takes the children out on regular trips to locals soft play and activity centres. My daughter has made lovely friends whilst in Elaine's care and is full of stories about new friends and people she has meet.

My daughter comes home everyday happy and eager to share with us what she has been doing all day,

As soon as I meet Elaine I knew that my daughter would be happy with her and this has been the case since day one. I would highly recommend Elaine if your looking for a local childminder, she is amazing !

My little girl has been going to Elaine since January 2020. I went back to work and did KIT days and Elaine looked after her and she didn’t cry once in the whole process. I find it so reassuring that I can drop off my daughter and she enjoys it so much.

In the morning she’s so busy playing with her little friends I don’t get a goodbye or a kiss. When I drop her in the morning she gets so excited as soon as we get out the car, she instantly knows where we are going and starts to wave as we walk up to Elaine’s door. In the evening when my husband picks her up it’s a real effort to get her to leave, she doesn’t want to come home.

My daughter comes home with drawings and paintings all the time which is so lovely. Her development has really come along and her speech significantly improved in the short time since she started full time in January. Elaine has all the educational and role playing toys that she needs and it’s lovely seeing my little girl playing with her friends.

My daughter has a dairy allergy and Elaine has made sure there are strict procedures in place and ensures there are no worries about her allergy. I was very confused about where to send my daughter, I saw Elaine’s and knew straight away that my daughter would thrive there. If you are looking for a fantastic childminder please contact Elaine and arrange a meeting. Elaine’s house is home away from home – your child will thrive if you send them to Elaine’s.
