Gale has been looking after my 2 year old for over a year. She is caring, loving, flexible and always there when you need her.

I am a fluent Welsh speaker and keen that my daughter has a bilingual upbringing. Gale has embraced the Welsh language and whilst not a fluent Welsh speaker herself, uses a range of Welsh phrases and words with my daughter.

Gale is extremely dependable and flexes her approach to suit every child's needs. She is extremely attentive and focuses entirely on the happiness and development of your child.

As a qualified teacher with years of experience looking after children I wouldn't leave my child with anyone else. I would highly recommend Gale.

Gale is a wonderful childminder. She currenlty looks after my 8 month baby girl and picks up my 4 year old from Hawthorn Primary. She's very loving, kind and generous. She's flexible but professional. She treats my children as extensions of her family and I love her for it. HIGHLY recommend.
