My daughter has been going to Sophie for the last 15 months and absolutely loves it. She can’t wait to go each day and I think this is very much due to the environment of learning, fun and activities that Sophie creates. She has developed massively over her time there and they are always out and about seeing things and doing different activities. Sophie creates a very safe and homely environment too. My daughter loves her boys. Sophie also keeps us well updated with how she is doing, what she has eaten etc making us feel informed and confident in the care she is getting. I can’t recommend Sophie and her home highly enough.

My two year old son Leon has been with Sophie two days a week for a year now and I can honestly say he loves it there. She's not just an absolutely amazing childminder who goes above and beyond for the children in her care, but she's just as amazing as a person, a loving, caring, funny, and supportive parent who treats the children as her own and us parents as close friends. She's always keeping us up to date with what Leon gets up to during the day, sending us reassuring pictures and videos, planning fun and educational activities, telling us what he's eaten and how much, and keeps track of his development and what he might need extra help with. We only speak Swedish to Leon at home, but this has not been an issue at all for Sophie who rather embraces that and also our culture by trying to incorporate not just ours but as many cultural activities as she can in the kids' learning. Leon has also made so many friends while staying with Sophie, not just the other children but her own two wonderful boys who absolutely adore Leon, play with him after school, celebrated his birthday with him, and cuddle up with him on the sofa at the end of the day. They keep telling me Leon is like a part of their family, and it warms my heart! So all in all, Sophie is truly the best childminder I could have hoped to find, Leon has grown so much in her care and he's so comfortable with her and her family. Her home is full of fun toys and every day she plans various activities for them: fun crafts, messy play, garden fun, baking, reading stories together, she prepares home cooked meals twice a day, and Leon always comes home smiling, tired but happy, with something he's made that day. I couldn't praise Sophie enough, and we'll try to stay with her for as long as we can. :)

Sophia is an outstanding childminder. She gives children her full attention and makes sure every day is different and packed with fun activities. Children never seem bored, quite opposite, they're always smiling and bursting with excitement. The setting is very homely and clean, and there are good parks around for Sophia to take them out for a walk. Parents are also well looked after with plenty of photos to keep them calm and informed. We feel lucky to find Sophia and her lovely family, in a place where our daughter feels at home!

Sophie is the best childminder that my son has ever had. My son is very happy when he is with Sophie.

Sophie’s house is clean which I really like. You cannot smell dirty nappies or any bad odour from her house. This is rare for me as I have seen other settings which disappointed me.

Sophie is very caring. I can see that Mason is at ease and calm with her. I can say this because I have left my son with a different minder and he did not like it. Yes, my son knows the other minder as she is a family friend that he sees most of the time.

Sophie has loads of activities for the kids! I know that my son would learn a lot when I leave him there. She sends me photos and updates throughout the day so I know what they are doing.

My son also learnt how to eat cucumbers and all the other healthy foods. He is only 20 months old and could eat fruit and veggies on his own.

It also helps that her children are very kind, caring and sweet. They even say ‘I love you’ to my son when he is going home and very excited to see him the next day.

I happily drive extra 20 minutes every day to drop off my son to Sophie. I have waited for a few months before my son could have a place. Good thing I have messaged her again to double check and she had a space.

It is home away from home. If you are in search of a childminder just message her :)

I was recommended Sophie by a friend and I can see why . Sophie creates such a warm and inviting environment that I had no qualms about dropping off my 19 month old son for the first time. She has two lovely boys who are also just so hands on which I see as such an advantage from a developmental point of view . When I picked up my son he was having some amazing home cooked food and already on his second helping ! Really happy , thank you Sophie !

Highly recommended!!

We’ve only just Sophie once so far but the kids loved her and had a great time. It was their first babysitting experience.
She came round to meet us one night prior to the booking to make sure we were all happy with each other and so the kids felt comfortable.
On our night out I felt totally comfortable and didn’t feel the need to check in. Although Sophie sent me updates.
Highly recommended.

Sophie has looked after our 3.5 year old and 10 month old a couple of times now and is really great with both of them! Extremely helpful and accommodating and reliable! Cannot say enough good things! Look forward to her services in future!

We started using Sophie last year and my little girl loves her. She is very accommodating for her allergies and includes her in everything. Sophie is also great at doing various activities, outings and keeping the children engaged and curious. She is brilliant at being flexible around my wife's shifts too. We are so happy to have found her and know she will continue to help our little girls development and keep her happy and safe.

Our son loves coming here and always talks so positively about his time spent in a brilliant setting. The house is always spotless and the care and attention he gets spending his day there is absolutely first class. Lots of socialisation with other kids and playgroups takes place and I am always sure that our little lad will come home full of enthusiasm for his day. I couldn't recommend highly enough !!

My best experience ever. My kid's love going over to Sophie. She is so calm and loves having kids around. Leaving my children under sophies care gives me peace of mine because I know they are in safe hands. Thank you, Sophie,
