Helen currently cares for my 4 yr old son and has done so for the past year. Helen looks after him four days a week and will continue to do so when he starts school in September. I was put in touch with Helen by recommendation and feel very lucky to have found her. My son takes some time to settle in to new environments but Helen managed him beautifully, she had him giggling within minutes!. Helen is very experienced and takes it all in her stride. She provides a very caring, safe environment and she works brilliantly with parents to be flexible and meet everyone's individual needs, reducing my stress around childcare worries considerably!. Helen's house is always full of fun and my son loves the many walks/park trips and outdoor activities they do together. He also comes home with lots of fun craft work, cooking & all sorts that has kept him busy. He is happy and settled so we couldn't ask for more.
Thank you Helen :)

Helen has looked after our little girl for a year now. When I was looking for a childminder, I interviewed 3 different ones before I found Helen. The reason I chose her was because it's more than just a job to her, Helen really cares about children and genuinely enjoys their company. This love and care was precisely the environment I was looking for, leaving my one year old with her, there were never any tears and she settled very quickly. Over the year, my daughter has thrived. She's quite a shy little one, but after a day with Helen she's overflowing with confidence and happy smiles. Our daughter is moving on to nursery now, but if I have anymore children, Helen will be the first person I turn to for her excellent childminding.

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.

Helen has cared for my 2 children for the past 2 years and I have been delighted!
Helen is a loving, caring person who provides a home from home environment for all the children she cares for.

She is extremely flexible and if she can help, she will help.
