Couldn’t rate Claire enough.
Having three kids, twins and a 3 year old to look after. She was incredible. Me and my wife were very anxious at finding someone. What a blessing it was finding Claire. Always on call! Thank you once again!

I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt this time was a must.

Claire helped us out over the past few months tutoring our children.

From the first day Claire brought the exact aged books for the children in order to provide a structured learning plan. She arrived with an activity bag which the children loved and even took the children out on days out.

Me and my wife are so pleased that we found her and can’t wait for half term to help with school work and taking the chi,Daren out. We really do feel at ease with Claire and the children even ask if she can visit on weekends - which she does!!

Claire has provided support for our children and I feel they have made an incredible progress as the online learning was a struggle.

Claire was and remains incredibly flexible and I can’t wait to see what the next half term brings.

Me and my wife had a brief holiday during the year and Claire provided support when we were there. She also babysat in the hotel which was a bonus when we had a wedding.

Super excited for the children and for the help she brings.

Claire has looked after my babies while my husband has been away working from June to July. They’re 6 weeks old and I knew, once my husband was away, I would find it difficult managing the home, caring for my babies and looking after 2 dogs.

Claire is an outstanding childminder, I was able to drop my babies off and have a few hours to myself. I didn’t think I needed the few hours, but it has helped me greatly. Claire on many occasions over the time we had her has taken the dogs for long walks and even helped us with housework which has been a god send.

I was worried that my husband was leaving and I would really struggle, but I found Claire and I do really hope she will be available to help us out again!!

Claire has been such a delight through what we thought was a difficult time! We had a tough few weeks at the beginning of lockdown. Claire entertained our daughter both Saturdays and Sundays and continues to do so. We couldn’t have asked for more! We love her!

Claire has looked after our 6 month baby a couple of times since we decided to move to the area. We felt at ease and our baby loves her. Claire has had him over night and all day which has been a blessing for us to have our time and to catch up on the much needed house work. When Claire doesn’t have our baby, she has done the ironing and washing in her home and delivered it back to us the next day. Claire also takes our dog out with her and is an incredible part of our family. I would thoroughly recommend Claire.
