Would recommend Selena's Toddlers without a shadow of a doubt! She is very professional but also warm, kind and friendly.
My son always enjoyed his time with Selena and couldnt wait until the next time they got to hang out.
Selena always kept my son busy weather it be baking, trips to the park, library or letting of steam at a play centre.
Initially being an anxious mum leaving her child I soon realised I had nothing to worry about, lots of photos and updates to ease my mind.
Thank you for all that you have done, Cooper will miss you terribly.

Thank you lovely ! Cooper will be Missed so much by us all xx

My 10 month old went to a different childminder to start with and found it very difficult to settle and was always upset and then we found Selena and my daughter almost instantly settled, within a matter a days my daughter was content and most of all happy, as a parent that is the best thing you can wish for, selena was very comforting to me too sending me updates and pictures, if I ever need a childminder again selena would be the first person I would call

I had never used a childminder before and was a bit nervous, Selena put my mind at ease straight away, my daughter (4yrs)was welcomed with open arms and made to feel at home. Selena kept me updated through-out and even sent pictures to show what a great time my daughter was having.
My daughter can be quite fussy and shy around strangers and can be clingy when she's around people she doesn't know, when I came to collect her I was expecting her to run straight to me, instead she asked if she could stay another five minutes because she was having fun, which says it all really lol.
I couldn't recommend Selena highly enough I will definitely be using again in the future.
Thanks Selena x

Selena has been my childminder since my daughter was age 2 averaging 3 full days a week. The time has now come for my daughter to start school and reflecting on the years she has spent with Selena I can honestly say it's been brilliant. There have been many milestones for my daughter along the way and Selena has been a significant part of her development and learning journey. There is never a dull day and always fun and exciting activities planned that I particularly enjoyed seeing in photo updates that Selena would send. Thanks to the warm and positive environment that Selena provides my daughter is confident and prepared for her new chapter in school. I would strongly recommend Selena's toddlers to any parent seeking high quality care.

My daughter started with Selina beginning of January I was nervous at first but the warm welcome I had when we first met was amazing my daughter at the time was 17months they clicked straight away, I wouldn’t want anyone else to look after and be responsible for my daughter I feel that she is safe and being treated as Selina’s own. She also gets excited when I arrive outside Selina and always greets Selina with a hug. I also have many photo sent to me where she has great smiles and having fun with other children!
