Lindsey looked after my daughter from pre school up until the end of year 3 when we sadly had to say goodbye as we moved out of the village. My daughter was always happy and comfortable to be collected from
School by and spend time in Lindsey’s home with her own children and others she looked after. Due to being a single parent for some time, my schedule was unpredictable and Lindsey was always willing to help where she could at short notice. She is a strong member of the community in Pirton and you can rely on her to keep you up to date with inset days, non uniform days and upcoming school events if you are as forgetful as I am!
Her home is clean and tidy with sufficient indoor and outdoor space with various activities and toys for children of all ages.
I have nothing but good things to say about Lindsey and Lucie, who looked after my two little ones for nearly two years. It is a real home from home environment where the children are nurtured, encouraged and stimulated. They always came home clutching something they had made/painted that day and with stories to tell of what they had got up to (been to toddler group, soft play or the par etc). During the time that my children were with them, my working hours and childcare needs changed and Lindsey and Lucie were flexible and supportive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a caring and supportive environment for their children.
Lindsey has been taking care of my daughter now for 2 years on a part time basis and she will be leaving to start school this summer. She has been so good with Imogen and she has thrived in the setting, despite the fact that my daughters special needs meant that Imogen couldn't talk to others in the setting. Her understanding that each child is individual and her work with Imogen to make her feel comfortable and happy has been so reassuring.
Lindsey is so flexible as I have often had to call her up at the last minute to ask if she can take Imogen for extra days and it has never been a problem. It's also been great for me as a teacher that I was able to send Imogen to childcare only in the school term time. She also picks her up and drops her off in the evenings which makes that mad rush in the morning just that little bit more manageable. She feeds her lunch and dinner and even coped with the fact that we are vegetarian without any hassle. She's also extremely reliable and has never had time off herself for sickness etc.
I love to see Imogen's learning journal and see all the pictures and notes about what she has been up to. Whenever I visit the setting there are always happy busy children and I know that Imogen will miss her friends when she moves on to big girl school.
I can't thank Lindsey and Lucie for all there care and attention for Imogen over the past two years enough.
My Daughter has been with Lindsey fulltime from the age of 1 . Lindsey is an amazing childminder who provides the highest quality of care a parent could ask for , she made me comfortable going back to work and leaving my little girl in the care of someone other than my family. She plans lovely activities for Amelia to participate in , feeds them a variety of delicious food and provides a fun, stimulating playroom which Amelia and her friends love to be in. Amelia comes home on a daily basis beaming with happiness and eager to tell me about her day and all the new things she has learnt. Lindsey is reliable and together we found a routine that suited us. when my little girl was younger she had a daily book which was an excellent way of communication so I could see how long she had slept, what she had eaten ect. Lindsey and her daughter Lucie have helped support Amelia through her development and have helped shape her into the polite funny little girl I know. I appreciate all they have done for Amelia and I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a childminder. (If I could rate them 10 stars I would !!! ) Thank you for all your hard work Girls . Amelia will certainly miss coming to play :) xx
My son has been going to Lindsey for a year and has absolutely loved his time there! He is always so happy to spend the day with her and comes home singing all different songs and learns so much in her company. She does a variety of activities with the children and takes them out and about to different toddler groups which is excellent for their development. She has been excellent at sticking to the routine we set up and has been such a positive influence on this crucial time in his life.
We moved house during this time and Lindsey was so flexible with us and was able to pick up and drop off at different times to a different location which we were so glad of! She has also been so flexible with holiday requests and helpful when we have needed to adjust hours at short notice.
We have been able to get my Son into the local pre-school which is why we no longer need to use Lindsey but will definitely be contacting her in the future if we have more children. Would definitely recommend!
My son has been going to Lindsey since he was 6 months old and is now almost 2 1/2. He absolutely loves going to Lindsey and runs there every morning. Lindsey has been great at maintaining the routine I'd set up and he has thrived under her care with him hitting all of his milestones at his recent check. Stanley has grown to be a confident, sociable young boy and I have no doubt as to Lindsey's influence on this both because of her care and also the environment she has created.
My husband has hours that change and Lindsey has always been really flexible to help accommodate. We don't have much family in the area and Lindsey has proven to be a vital part of our lives in the last two years.
Sadly we are moving away, otherwise we would be using Lindsey for many years to come. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her.
I am so delighted that I found you guys to help with my baby to allow me to return to work. You have made the transition easy for me and fun for my little girl, allowing us to take things slowly. My baby comes home very happy after every visit and I know I am leaving her in extremely capable hands. I would strongly recommend you to any parent as you offer so much more than just childcare and we look forward to knowing you for years to come.
