review of Helen Br - Childminder in Hitchin
For over 2 years, Helen looked after our little girl and she really became part of Helens family. Sadly, we had to move away, but our daughter still talks about Helen often and we all really miss her. Helen is really active with the children she looks after. She attends a number of groups with the children that provide all the benefits of nursery but with the advantage of the child being with their key person at all times. She also keeps the children entertained and interested by structuring activities around interesting events – from Chinese New Year to Christmas. Helen keeps all the children very well behaved without ever raising her voice or even making the children realising they are being made to behave well. The feedback you get about what the children have been up to during their time in her care is incredible. We have an fantastically detailed folder with lovely photos which we really treasure. It doesn’t compare to the day a week she spent at the local ‘outstanding’ ofsted nursery where the feedback was impersonal and much less detailed. Next to everything Helen did for the children, she was really flexible and helpful on those days that work called for a late start or an early finish – something the nursery just couldn’t provide. We cannot recommend Helen enough and wish we still lived close enough for her to look after our children.
