We love Francine :)

Francine has been our 18 months old's childminder for 4 days a week since he started in childcare at 12 months old. We have been so lucky finding her.

When looking at childcare options, we wanted our son to be in a family environment with people who love and care for him and with other children of a similar age to interact with. Francine is incredibly warm and loving, always giving cuddles and reassuring words. Rex has made lots of friends with the other, all pre-school aged children in her care. She is clearly motivated to provide the best care, doing a range of daily activities including visits to playgroups, circle time, reading, painting...the list goes on. My partner and I are in awe of her energy. She also has the loveliest family who clearly love having the little ones around - her teenagers are such fantastic role models for the little people (and great for fun games in the evening!).

Our son has thrived during his time with her. He absolutely loves going to Francine's, often taking his bag to the door and grabbing his shoes long before it is time for us to leave in the morning. When he arrives, he always gives Francine the biggest hug and in the evening sometimes doesn't want to leave. We try not to take it to personally!

Finally Francine is an absolute baby magician. Our son is a super energetic ball of energy and she's managed to channel this so that he loves doing things that can be a struggle with toddlers. He happily walks along the road holding our hands, loves showing us how to put his coats and shoes on, is always ready to brush his teeth and even doesn't mind getting his nappy changed.

Thank you so much Francine for all your love and support with our little man!
