Claire’s crèche is a childminder I would definitely recommend for sure. My daughter walks out so happy that she counts the days/hours of going back. At Claire crèche it’s such a warm welcoming atmosphere. They setting indoors and outdoors are set for all ages that Claire looks after. You always walk into a nice clean tidy place and get welcomed with a very nice happy smile each time. Claire does so much for the children she childminds. My daughter has been looked after by Claire since 2018 for up to 2hrs when I am at my part time job. We met at school where both of our sons went to. My daughter loves going to Claire’s crèche she comes home so happy and has a big list of things she has done with Claire. Claire has also helped out on after school pick ups too from my daughter’s school were her daughter also goes to. My daughter says “There is so much do to at Claire crèche indoors and outdoors”. Some times it’s hard to get my daughter out of there as she wants to stay longer 🥰

Claire goes above and beyond for the children she cares for and provides much reassurance and support for the parents.
There was an introduction period where Claire met my daughter at the comfort of our own home to begin with to allow my daughter to get to know Claire in a setting she was familiar with. From there onwards my daughter has been so excited to go to Claires. We pull up to her house and my daughter will clap and get very giddy knowing she'll have one of the most amazing days with Claire. My daughter began from around 10 months of age, she's now 15 months and has developed leaps and bounds, a lot of that from being at Claires. It's clear Claire has a very deep passion for looking after children holistically, my daughter eats well when at Claires and comes home almost every time with a new word or a new action she's learnt with Claire and her wonderful 5 year old daughter. Such a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We've gone from my daughter never wanting to leave my side, to waving me goodbye and giving Claire big hugs and kisses when she sees her.
I could not recommend Claire enough. Claire also provides a booklet that documents all the important information in the day, such as when my daughter had a nappy change, any naps and food eaten etc. Very organised, very caring and also has a daughter who my little one adores.
I feel my daughter is very safe in Claires care.
Very clean house, lovely garden for the kids to play in and a variety of toys for all ages.
Communication is amazing.
We are very grateful for Claire! She's making my degree stress free as she's providing a second home for my daughter, couldn't be happier.

We were struggling to find a place for my 2 year old to start and really starting to lose hope for anything for him this term until my mother in law came across Claire's ad. After meeting Claire for a picnic at the local park (which she brought along her little one which helped to create a lovely atmosphere for our first meet), we felt so relieved and without hesitation got the ball rolling and he started the following week. From just the first day with Claire and her daughter you could see the meaning behind the actions of what Claire would do where sometimes as parents you overlook and it's not thought of.. for example my little one found a stick and started drawing in the dried mud, Claire noticed this and started to draw out the letters in the ground and he copied sounding out the letters. Our boy also struggles with his speech and even just the last week of his days with Claire he's started trying so much more and can see such an improvement which Claire has clearly had a huge impact on! Claire's home is immaculate but also it's very clear to see that lots of fun memories and learning will be made here with her wide selection of educational toys. Safe to say that Claire is our little boy's new favourite person and not a day goes by where he doesn't ask to go to Claire's house and from the offset we have felt complete trust in Claire and so thankful to have found her. 5 stars for Claire's Creche ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
