Our daughter has been with Tricia for about 2 years and we love her!

Our daughter has always always been happy there, and we have always felt that she is safe and looked after at Tricia's House. She is a particularly sociable and affectionate little girl - Tricia knows and understands her very very well.

We have been impressed with Tricia's knowledge, attention to detail and abilities.

I will ALWAYS recommend Tricia, and with another baby on the way- we will certainly use her for the next one!

My daughter started at Tricia's house 5 months ago, up until then i had never left her. . . .leaving her with Tricia & her staff just felt right. My daughter has never cried when i have left & is always really happy when i collect her. I would be lost without Tricia & her fab staff xx

I am a very luck person to have found Tricia who provides the highest quality childminding to my daughter. I have been extremely happy with the childcare provided. Tricia is so welcoming and fun, the home atmosphere is lovely, and most importantly I have always had the peace of mind knowing that my daughter is very happy in her care. Whe I drop my daughter every morning, I go to work with a smile on my face, having a piece of mind, knowing that my daughter is in safe hands, she will be well looked after, having lots of fun, doing arts, learning to make different things in her care. The best childminder in York. Thank you

I work in York Hospital, working long hours shift and Tricia is very accomodating, flexible understanding, a BIG thank you, coming through from my heart, without you I would not be able to keep my job as my daughter comes first.

I would 100% plus recommend Tricia to anyone who is looking for the best childminder for their children wellbeing and a happy childhood.

Tricia is by far the best Childminder I have ever had.

I ma leaving the area so sadly I wont need her anymore... if I could have taken her with me I would.

Tricia looks after my 1 year old full-time and my four year old on Wednesday afternoons and whenever I need her to.

She is totally flexible and adaptable to my requirements. I work irregular hours and my husband commutes to London - Tricia is always there when we need her. In fact I couldn't have returned to my job if it weren't for Tricia.

She even worked beyond the call of duty for the past six months by having my youngest on a Sunday so my husband could spend time with our eldest.

So whats she like with the children? We Ed smiles and giggles before i even reach her front door. H loves her. Every time you walk in the house Tricia has set up the room with different activities. Alf, my oldest, enjoys being with her too and always tells me about all the good things he's done - and he's very hard to please!

Tricia takes them out to the park, runs a children 's club for other childminders in the area and basically has embraced this job amazingly.

She works with two others and they're great girls too. Her food looks yummy and i often wish I was staying for lunch. Her house is kitted out with everything you'd expect from a nursery.

Tricia is a lovely approachable lady and I will really miss her looking after my boys. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She is truelly amazing.

Excellent with the children, always happy to be left, sometimes dont want to come home, great variety of equipment and activities, love the learning journeys, think the parent and toddler group is a great idea, excellent staff with a great mentor. would highly recommend
