I’m so glad we found Sam when looking for childcare for our daughter.
Sam is a fun, friendly, caring and professional childminder. Very reliable and attentive to details. I very much recommend Sam to anyone looking for childcare :)

Both my 3,5 year old and 18 month attend Pitter Patter playschool and they couldn't be happier. I wish we had found Sam and her assistant Rosie earlier. Sam has a really good set up for the children to play, from the big playroom to her long garden in the summer. There are always structured activities every day, day trips and a good variety of toys. As an ex primary school teacher Sam is particularly interested in each child's personal development, where she keeps you updated with daily observations. Currently there is a wonderful mix of children of all ages and backgrounds which is great for the other one's to learn from. She has a very professional set up and we are happy that our children are under her care.

I am so glad I found Sam. My one year old daughter loves Sam, she is so caring, always trying new things with them. I have to say I was really anxious about leaving my little one with someone else specially because she was only 8 months and being a first time parent it's hard to let go. But she settled so well and she enjoys being there. As soon as we walk through the door she jumps into Sam's arms. She has been there for 6 months now and I know I couldn't find anywhere better for her. House is always spotless, Sam always makes sure they have healthy food and snacks available and even when she is poorly I know Sam worries as if it was me. So a massive thank for being so caring and wonderful with her.

Sam is amazing, she is so friendly, kind and caring and really goes above and beyond. They have different activities set out everyday enabling them to have fun but develop each child individually. My daughter has 18 food intolerance and they are so accomodating and provide her with nutritional and balanced snacks and meals which still incorporate her with the other children. The house is always spotlessly clean, its a safe space for them to be in and they have a fantastic play room, open plan layout and outdoor space for the children to explore. I am always kept up to date and daughter doesnt want to leave when i go to collect her. Thank you!

My son absolutely adores Sam is so happy in her care. She gives all the attention and support he needs and since moving here has developed so much. She engages the children with daily activities and fun. Provides healthy meals (that I swear only Sam can get him to eat) and establishes a great routine too. I know my son is happy and in the best care here. My only wish is that I had found Sam sooner! We've had 3 previous childminders due to moving house and other circumstances and Sam is by far the BEST we've found. Can not rate highly enough!
