Michelle is a truly wonderful childminder! Our 15-month old daughter Maia settled in with her amazingly quickly. While we struggle for Maia to take proper naps, Michelle worked her magic and got her to sleep up to 2.5 hours, within the first week of Maia being in her care! Maia finds it hard to see her parents leave, but Michelle always knows what to do to distract her and cheer her up, and Maia is settled even before I have left the house! Maia has also been eating much better than she used to at home. Michelle takes the children to play groups and the park, and invents different toys and games for them to play with at her home, so that they get different types of stimulation and learning activities all the time. She also sends the children home with a daily report, so that we know what they've been up to. Michelle is honestly the best childminder I've met and we're very sad to be moving to the other side of town. I recommend her in the strongest possible terms!
My 2-year old son has been with Michelle for 2 months now and loves it there. Michelle is caring, flexible and very professional. It is always hard leaving your little one behind when going to work but I have no worries that he is well cared for and safe. I would highly recommend Michelle!
Michelle has been the perfect childminder for our daughter Freya (now 19-months). Freya enjoyed spending time with Michelle and was always excited to be going to her house. She always seemed happy when I went to collect her and sometimes didn’t want to leave. Freya is a sociable child and she enjoyed going to the local childminder groups where she could play with lots of other children. Michelle is reliable and very caring with the children and I felt very comfortable leaving my daughter in her care.
I was sorry we had to move away from Cambridge and take Freya away from Michelle. I would thoroughly recommend her as a childminder.
Our daughter Tillie has been with Michelle for 6 months and she absolutely loves Michelle. She smiles when I drop her off and is always happy and smiley when I pick her up. Michelle is always very helpful and flexible. She made us feel so welcome when we first met and made the transition back to work so much easier for us. She is always happy to help out very accommodating to our needs.
Michelle is also very professional and sends a nice report book home so we know what Tillie has been up to all day. I would recommend Michelle to anyone who needs a friendly, flexible and professional child-minder.
