We provide an environment that encourages exploration and development through creative play and activities.

Michelle and Akos have been looking after my 9 and 6 year old, before and after school since January when we returned to the UK from living overseas. My daughter had only ever known me to be at home so I was concerned about her settling. I need not have worried, on our initial visit Akos and Michelle were so warm and welcoming that she never once wobbled about bring left (although her instant love for Mabel the chihuahua helped!)
Michelle and Akos have been amazingly flexible around my anti social work start times and helped me so much with dropping the kids home when I injured my back in the summer. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
I’m gutted that they have now moved to Oakham but we wish them, Emily and the dogs/bunnies and ducks all the best in their new home. If you are looking for peace of mind with a childminding service I 100% recommend Rutland Rainbows!

I can not rate Michelle and Akos highly enough, I moved my daughter from a nursery setting when it closed down to Michelle and I have never looked back. It has been the best move for my daughter and have been so happy with the developments my daughter has been making. She has thrived in this home from home lovely relaxed setting. Michelle and Akos are so friendly and helpful and have been very flexible which is a must due to my work commitments. My daughter is so happy to go to childcare in the morning and it makes me happy knowing she is in a trusted environment. I'm moving next year and I'm so gutted to have to move my daughter somewhere else. I would fully recommend Michelle and Akos to any other parent.
