I can offer a dedicated and caring service in a safe and secure environment with playroom, large garden and playhouse on the outskirts of Horncastle which is within a 10 to 15 minute walk from the centre.

Below are the latest reviews for Andrea. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

We're a little biased as Andrea is our daughter's caregiver at nursery, but we were still nervous about her first night away from us. We had nothing to worry about, she got to sleep really easily - a sure sign that she was comfortable with Andrea and the change of scene.
Andrea is very friendly and was happy for us to bring along our white noise and night light to keep our daughter's routine as normal as possible. She's got a great range of toys and books, and a big garden.
Our daughter has been comfortable with Andrea from the moment they met, and I would highly recommend her!

I took my little boy to meet her before hand and he took an instant liking to her and ever since he has loved going there. I feel at ease when he is with her as I know he is having a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend 👌
