My daughter has been going to Leda full time since September '23 and loves being there. Leda has created a fantastic setting full of fun and love, it is very much a home from home. The children enjoy every minute of being there. Leda provides healthy meals and does crafts/takes the children to the park nearby and lots of other fun activities. Leda is always really flexible and makes life very easy for working parents. I feel so happy leaving my daughter in her care and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder.

My son has been going to Leda for over a year and loves it. Leda is warm, kind and caring, and creates a nurturing environment for the children in her care. She’ll make home-cooked meals (much better than a nursery setting!) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. She even made my son a chicken soup with lemon and ginger when he wasn’t feeling well – which shows how she goes above and beyond. Leda also organises lovely activities for the little ones (painting, crafts, learning games, etc) and will often take them to local playgroups, parks or the coffee shop. She’s also friendly, flexible and unflappable! It’s so nice knowing my son is being taken care of so well.

Leda has been taking care of my Son since September 2023 and I honestly cannot fault her! I was extremely anxious going back to work and leaving my son with someone, but I needn’t have worried.
Leda is kind, loving, very attentive and my son settled in really quickly. He is always happy when I collect him as are the other children in her care. It’s like a home away from home but with lots of friends to play with!
Home cooked meals are always a hit with him too and he sleeps well.
Leda is always extremely accommodating and responsive if you have any questions, she puts you at ease and is reassuring. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
I feel really lucky I found Leda! Best childminder around

Our son loves his time at Leda. So much so that he’s disappointed not to go at the weekends. Leda is kind and caring and provides a wonderful environment for the children she looks after. Our son has really developed over the last year and particularly enjoys trips to Bushy Park and playing in her paddling pool over the summer!

We have had the pleasure of Leda as our childminder since February 2020 for our daughter, from 20 months. Leda is a total breathe of fresh air to deal with, she is kind, attentive and my daughter loves being in her warm and nurturing environment. As a mother of 3 children and bags of experience Leda is unflappable and is always truly welcoming to the children and parents alike. Leda takes the children out of the home environment on a regular basis to near by Bushy Park, playgrounds, coffee shops, the library and stay and plays and makes great use of her lovely garden with a paddling pool insitu! John, Leda’s husband is equally friendly to deal with and their combination works really well to operate a successful and seamless business. I am yet to find any faults in their setup. Leda has made a huge impact on our daughter’s development and I am in no doubt we will stay in touch!
