Caroline has been looking after my infant since he was 8 months old and he settled down very quickly with her. We were lucky to find her on childcare.co.uk and lives round the corner from us so couldn't ask for more. There is a varied collection of toys for the kids to play and a nice garden where she put out a paddling pool during summer and the kids loved it. Hurray! Our elder son aged 4 also went to her and came home with his graduation certificate from Caroline on his last day(alongside a photoframe showing him in a formal graduation attire holding the certificate).He is now ready for school and we are already counting on Caroline to pick him up from school when we need to. Caroline has been always welcoming, pleasant and engaging with all my 3 kids alongside the added bonus of being flexible in everyday childcare timings. She helped the kids to do handmade cards for Mother's and Father's day using brilliant ideas and also gave a special birthday present to my little one on his 1st birthday. She went the extra mile and took my sons to a nearby farm in her car on one fine day (hoping for more outdoor trips next time). Thank you Caroline for being there for us and looking forward to meeting up again with you after the summer break.

Caroline or nannies is what we refer to Caroline as. She looks after willow as if she was one of her own grandbabies and supports me with development when I am worrying if willow is developing at correct stages. Willow gave her first wave to Caroline and throughly enjoys eating all her different meals she is given. Willow loves the jumparoo and the multitude of indoor and outdoor resources that are available to all the children.

Caroline looked after my little Brother for 5 years, from the age of 7 until 12. She used to drop him and collect him from Forest Lodge school every day and then look after him until I finished work.
He used to have his breakfast there and his evening meal…..he loved his time at Caroline’s and was always excited to go there….thank you so much Caroline.
