We have been sending our little boy to Alex for nearly a year now and she has helped him settle in so well. He has developed amazingly in eating and play and he loves spending the day with her!

She's so helpful and thoughtful, we see her as an extension to our family.

We started sending my first child to Alex in August of 2020. Being a first time mother, during a global pandemic, far away from my family brings lots of challenges and anxiety. My daughter had not had a lot of interaction with people because of quarantines and lock downs, but she settled in with Alex very quickly. When we would go on holiday, my daughter would see things and say "Alex would like that" or talk about missing her friends. When I was pregnant with my second daughter, Alex was one of the first to find out as I wanted to make sure we would be able to send her as well! Due to some family challenges, my second daughter had to start at 8 months instead of 11 like I had planned. Alex was kind enough to take her in, and - sure enough - my daughter settled in within a day.

Beyond being a great childminder who my kids love, Alex has become part of the family. When I am questioning a cold, sleep patterns, outbursts, etc, Alex is there to help talk me through it and assure me "this is normal" or "maybe call the GP". She opens her doors and her heart to these kids and it is a huge reassurance to me that my kids are in such a loving setting.

Absolutely love this woman. From day one she has been the top number one support for myself and my son. Alex goes above and beyond expectations. She is without a shadow if doubt my saving grace and amazing woman. Deserves all the credit. Not only as a childminder but as a friend and provides good advice to new parents.

My son loves Alex to bits and she is so genuine it's not about money for her it's from the heart. X

I cannot thank this woman enough for what she has done for my child and me, she has been a great support not only as a childminder but as a friend also. I would definitely recommend her. x

We chose Alex to be our daughter's childminder because we could see how at home the children under her care were. Our daughter has attended Alex's from the age of about 10 - 20 months and we are only leaving because of a planned move to the coast. In the time she has been there we have seen our daughter grow into an independent, social and focused little individual. Alex and her assistants have supported and encouraged her every step of the way, from walking to talking, and all in between. It was important to us that our daughter be somewhere that wasn't a big jump from being at home with family. Whilst we know that Alex works very hard to provide opportunities to learn and develop, she also allows the kids to be kids and do everything at their own pace and to their own unique schedules. Alex has been a dream; being very understanding and flexible when we've been less than ideal (late) clients; and always communicating well with us. We couldn't have had a better experience handing our child over into someone else's care for the first time!
