Lisa has been a brilliant force in my children’s early lives. We love her, her family and her home.
It’s the perfect setting for little ones. Warm, inviting, with plenty of space and toys.
She works so hard to ensure they get to see the world daily too, rather than being cooped up in a nursery room, taking them to playgroups and the park, meeting with other children their age.
I highly recommend. And would snap up a place if I was brave/ mad enough to have a 4th.
Lisa looked after my son from 1 until he went to school nursery aged 3 and 4 months. Lisa is a very experienced, thoughtful and reliable
childminder, my son has flourished in her care. Lisa really knows and understands my son and has made sure he is doing things that he loves, that he has been stretched, that his triumphs are celebrated and he has been supported to form deep friendships with other children in the setting. The environment is beautiful, food homemade and healthy and activities varied, imaginate and fun. I'm so grateful that we found Lisa and that my son had such a brilliant early years experience.
Lisa is incredible! From the first day our daughter Rose was with her we never looked back. Not only is she wonderful with the babies/children, she is also a great support to the parents. I often asked her advice on things and with such a great wealth of experience she had great insight into basically everything! She has been doing childminding for so long that she has seen everything when it comes to babies/children.
Her home is the perfect setting for children; with a designated play area in the house with lots of toys and a really large garden for the children to run around, again with plenty of toys. It's a children's dream!
My daughter Rose started with Lisa when she was 11 months and so was in her care for nearly 2 years. Rose absolutely loved it and always said she loves Lisa (still does!) We have moved to Kent which is why we no longer are with Lisa and it was honestly one of the hardest things about the move; to stop Rose being in her care.
Lisa is extremely organised and provides updates throughout the day with pictures which is lovely. As well as this, she explains what they do in the day and what her actions will be in terms of the children's development. I had no idea there were 7 areas of development until Lisa shared this with me!
Lisa is very on top of keeping her home clean. Particularly this year with COVID-19 which has obviously required extra care in this area and takes a lot of time and energy to do so - it is something that I hugely appreciated.
In terms of food, I was always so impressed with what Lisa produced for the children. Always a nutritious meal with fruit and vegetables, as well as snacks mid morning and mid afternoon. At the end of the day, she would always let me know how much Rose ate which was always good to know and to be kept informed.
Overall, both me and my husband were utterly over the moon with Lisa as our daughter's childminder and would recommend her to anyone. She goes above and beyond for the children (and parents) and creates such a happy environment. She's a real gem. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Lisa for being the best!
How lucky we are to have found Lisa. She is kind, caring, brilliant with children, thoughtful, funny and very down-to-earth.
Lisa looked after our son from when he was 11 months to 2 years. He thrived in her care, and I watched as she cared for him as one of her own. She understands the minds of children so well, and really is tuned-in to their worlds and needs. In the summer her spacious (and beautiful!) garden is open to the children and I would often be sent pictures of my son running in bubbles, or playing in sand, or sat at a teddy bear's picnic. In the winter, they snuggle in her cosy house playing with endless toys. (If they're really lucky, they get to play in Lisa'a House Disco, with flashing lights and music!).
Lisa's days have a basic structure to them and the kids always get to go outside to a playgroup in the morning before heading back home for a home-cooked meal then a nap. The afternoons vary with toys, play, walks, quiet-time or garden-time. I was sent constant updates and always felt I could reach out to Lisa with questions. She is thoughtful and flexible and as a working mum she was a godsend and aways tried to make things as easy as possible.
My son adored being with Lisa, and still (a year after leaving) asks to go round to her house. She and I have become close friends - not something I would expect from a childminder - and I fully expect for Lisa to be in my little boy's life for a very long time.
I found the search for the right childcare setting for my daughter really hard. I was overwhelmed by choice and often distracted by things that I now realise are totally unimportant to me.
As soon as I walked into Lisa’s home, had a cup of tea, chat and saw a little boy getting a cuddle because he was upset, I knew her home was the right place for Sylvie.
She was 16months at the time. I wanted a place that felt warm, and somewhere she’d be
nurtured as though she was with family. And Lisa’s setting provided just that.
Sylvie was with Lisa until she was 3. We still see the family regularly. And I credit them for helping Sylvie become the lovely (most of the time!) little girl she is today.
Additionally I love the big spacious garden (that they spend all summer in, making dens, playing on trikes and drawing in chalk etc)
I love the fact that they get out and about to playgroups (rather than being stuck in the same room with the same toys day in day out.)
I love how flexible and accommodating Lisa is (to my slightly chaotic approach to life.)
And I love that I know I could always call and trust her with my girls if ever im in need. (I fully intend to send my second born to her).
Needless to say I would highly recommend Lisa if all the above is important to you.
