Below are the latest reviews for Alison. 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.

Alison cares for my 2 children, 1 of whom has SEND. She is a very professional and caring childminder and my children love going to her, especially my boy who regards an 'Alison day' as a treat

Alison has taken time to get to know my children, their favourite activities, their likes and dislikes (especially with food!) and always makes sure she tailors activities to my children's interests and abilities. She is always going out and about to places (the park, Walby, Magic Castle....) either walking, on the bus or using her own vehicle. She also has a very well set out house with a playroom full of toys, games, art materials e.t.c at the back of the house. Alison a has an outdoor area down the side of her house she uses which has sand/water play. The children tell me that Alison's meals are 'delicious' and 'tasty' and they especially like the very well stocked fruit bowl. Alison is able to cater for all diets including one of my children's specialist diet. She takes time to research alternatives and substitutes so that they dont miss out.

Her communication is excellent, especially regarding my childs SEND needs. Handovers are comprehensive and tell me everything I need to know about the children's day including what activities they have done and whether they have enjoyed themselves.

I would definitely recommend her.
