The most imaginative & nurturing childcare setting


Our little boy started with Carlene when he was 1 and within weeks his speech and confidence took off. I was nervous at leaving him but Carlene's communication was fantastic - she would drop us a text to let us know as soon as he settled and what he was playing with, which helped me feel confident at work as well. I love seeing her write ups of their days on tapestry, but I also love that she has time to talk to us at pick up too.

Every day when we pick Danny up Carlene tells us in detail what they did that day. She knows the children and celebrates their acheivements wholeheartedly and will notice when Danny learnt new words, and help him in his interests and wish to be independent. She takes the children out to interesting places every day, but also helps them to wonder at the everyday - with trips to the park to try different toys on the slide, or to the cathedral or picnics around the area.

Carlene provides a varied diet for the children and consistent routines in meal times and naps, so that I suspect Danny eats more politely and definitely naps more consistently with her than at home now! We couldn't be happier with her and Danny absolutely loves his days with her.

Thank you.
