Average Rating: 5 stars (5 from 12 reviews)

Our daughter has been with Michelle for nearly two years.

She settled in right away, with Michelle and her family welcoming her in to their home hole heartedly.

Michelle has offered our daughter a safe, loving and nurturing environment. Where she has come on so much since being with her.

Our daughter has so many lovely memories with Michelle and her family. From fun and educational activities at home make lots of crafts and baking too day trips out.

Michelle will send me updates with information on what they have being doing in the day along with pictures and videos.

I would highly recommend Michelle, she is an amazing childminder. Xx

My son one of those boys who cried then I had to leave him at nursery, but as soon as he started to go to Michelle he changed! All tiers gone! I couldn't believe it! It proved to me that I made a good choice by picking Michelle as his childminder.
She's gentle, caring, wonderful person. Who made my sons days much happier wile mummy is at work.
If you are looking for the childminder who will make your child happy and safe while you're busy at work choose Michelle and you won't feel sorry. 😉❤️

Within a few minutes of meeting Michelle we knew that we wanted her to look after our little girl. As soon as you wall in, it feels like a safe and comfortable environment. During the time she was there she developed so much and a large part was due to the interaction she had with both the other children and Michelle.
The updates we received from both indoor and outdoor activities made us both feel as though we were a part of her day and showed us she was safe and having fun.
The flexibility that Michelle offers meant she worked around both my wife and my schedule, which meant we weren't having to constantly rush around whilst also keeping the fees fair.
This was one of the main reasons for us
Choosing her as nurseries are not flexible at all.
You can tell she absolutely loves all children and as a result we knew that she would look after them as if they were her own.
We can't recommend Michelle enough and she will always be our first choice for our childcare.

I cannot recommend Michelle highly enough. My son was with Michelle for around 3.5 years until he started school and we will be back for every school holiday we can!

Michelle hits the perfect balance between giving the kids incredible experiences and activities, and providing a relaxing home from home environment. My son really flourished in his time here. He was so happy and so were we.

Michelle takes into account all the kids needs and personalities to creative a wonderful environment for them to grow and learn. Life at Michelle’s is like a second family for the kids and this is a great reassurance as a parent when leaving your children in childcare.

My daughter has been seeing Michelle for just over a year now and she absolutely loves it! Every time we get in the car she asks to go to mee mee’s house!
Michelle was so good when we settled her in age 1year, I was very nervous finding someone I could trust as I was new to Ashford coming from a Surrey background but I got a instant great gut feeling with Michelle. She is super professional, but still etreamly friendly with it. I receive daily updates on what my lo has been up to. The food served is always very healthy, games and interaction is fantastic! Lots of arts and crafts, games, outdoor play, trips to the local farms fantastic party’s! I could go on and on ! The house is spotless all the time, my husband and I can’t believe what Michelle and mark manage to fit into their day with the kids! Mark being the chef and Michelle taking care of the kids! It’s a fantastic team and I’m over the moon that I found Michelle and her wonderful family! If I could rate them out of 10 I’d vote 20 !!

I've been extremely happy with the care provided by Michelle for my 4 year old daughter. My daughter was always happy and bubbly at pick up and excited to go back. Michelle is very open, honest and approachable and made my little girl feel cared for and welcome. Highly recommended!

So grateful to have Michelle to look after my daughter! Michelle has been helping me for the last two years. Even though she moved to town from village - we are only too happy to follow her to make sure my girl continues to come to this friendly home. Kids never have a dull moment - always something on! Very safe, very clean house, full of love and laughter - I am so grateful to Michelle for her help. On several occasions, when I had to travel, Michelle was looking after my daughter for several days in a row, and my daughter is always looking forward to return to Michelle's home. Even better - if there ever is an occasion when Michelle is not available - her wonderful mom, also registered childminder, is there for backup. Highly recommended.

Michelle began looking after my daughter when she was only 13 months old and I was always totally happy with the level of care she received. She settled well and bonded with Michelle's boys.

She always came home exhausted from all the activities they'd been up to and was always bringing things home that she'd made. Michelle was brilliant at keeping me updated on everything they'd been up to, what my daughter had eaten, how long she'd slept for etc.

Michelle provided healthy home cooked meals for my daughter and had no problems accommodating her dairy intolerance.

Michelle's house was always spotlessly clean and tidy and she had a huge array of toys for the children.

I would totally recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a childminder.

I have been very happy with the care Mia has received, and the great progress she has made whilst in Michelle’s care. Michelle’s home was always welcoming, well organised and Mia had great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care.
She provided a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise. I know Mia recently enjoyed sand and water play, arts and crafts, singing and dancing as well as outings to different animal parks like rare breeds, trips to feed the ducks and walks in the park.
Michelle is a great communicator and had no trouble in gaining Mia’s confidence and therefore encouraging good behaviour and kindness. Michelle knows how to respond with firm but kind discipline explaining what we would like to see, in terms which she understands.
Michelle completed a diary detailing what Mia had done each day. From this I had a complete picture of her whole day including what she had eaten, how long she had slept and all her activities. This helped me to feel involved with her care.
All in all I am thoroughly happy with the level of care Mia received. Michelle was also very flexible and was there for us when we needed her the most.

My wife Leanne and I found Michelle through this site.
Our son Oliver went with her aged 10 months old in October 2010 when my wife went back to work after maternity leave.

Michelle was the first childminder we 'visited/veted' and she was the last. Instantly we knew that she was trustworthy, caring, friendly, professional and 'the one' as leaving your child with someone who is a complete stranger is a dawnting thing I think.

Oliver was a little clingy to his mum and found it difficult to let go of her but Michelle was so patient, caring and understanding. Like the other review mentions, Oliver would always come home with things Michelle aka Mimi had made with her for mummy and daddy and it was such a piece of mind knowing that whilst we were at work Oliver was safe and having fun with Michelle.

I particularly liked (and looked forward to!) reading up on his day/ what he got up to/developments etc in the 'contact diary' that Michelle would fill in every day and Oliver would come home with. Oliver also had food intolerances that Michelle was more than happy and capable to accommodate.

If we hadn't have moved county then we would still be using Michelle!
