Marie has been looking after our daughter since she was 10 months old. Marie is very experienced and knowledgeable about all aspects of child development and care. Marie has been fantastic at supporting us as new parents with our daughter's upbringing and development, esp. with sleep and weaning.

Marie provides a warm homely environment where our daughter is cared for as part of the family. Marie undertakes lots of varied activities with our daughter and goes well beyond what I'd expect from any childminder. Marie obviously loves looking after children and loves to nurture their development.

Marie keeps a detailed diary of our daughters daily activities and developments, including lots of lovely pictures. Our daughter often comes home with craft work she has undertaken with Marie's support.

Marie has a really well equipped play room and spacious garden. Her home and family are very welcoming and really do treat our daughter as part of the family. Marie serves home cooked meals which are varied and nutritious.

It has made it so much easier to return to work knowing that our daughter is well loved, cared for and her development nurtured within a warm, friendly, family atmosphere.
