review of Caroline - Childminder in Swindon
More like family - completely invaluable to us!
We have used Caroline as our childminder for nearly a year and a half (since March 2019) and could not have been happier with our choice. Caroline was recommended to us through my sister who had sent both of her children to Caroline's care previously, so to us this was a tried and tested relationship, and felt like keeping things in the family. And that's how it's felt really, Caroline has been completely invaluable to us. I was nervous to leave my quite clingy little one, but knew that in a smaller childminder setting she could feel more like a home from home, and learn some social skills in a more intimate environment rather than be overwhelmed in a more noisy manic nursery type setting Ever since my daughter has been going 3 days a week she has gained in confidence, speech, and manners to name but a few. You can tell the little ones adore Caroline, as will go off merrily into the house and happy to sit with and cuddle, but also respect instructions and behaviour boundaries as no nonsense is tolerated - which has been great as I can on occasion be too soft and happy to know the line is being towed! It's clear Caroline has been in the profession for some time as she is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to many aspects of the children she cares for. It's such a relief to know your little one is in great hands and with someone who takes a personal interest in their development and well being. Caroline always takes the time to provide important information and feedback, has kindly acted as a sounding board provided advice when requested. I feel we have gained a lifelong friend and support in Caroline and could not recommend her enough.
