Gayle has been looking after our daughter now for 3+ years. We have been really happy with the quality of care that Gayle has provided for our daughter. She enjoys being in Gayle’s company and she has been treated as part of the family.

Our daughter has made amazing progress whilst in Gayle’s care. She’s often doing fun and educational indoor and outdoor activities and takes the children to toddler groups/music classes enabling them to build up their social skills. Gayle has always encouraged our daughter to be confident, kind, and compassionate towards other children and adults and we’re pleased that our daughter is always happy and excited whenever she sees Gayle.

Gayle has shown professionalism in every aspect of her work. She has provided our daughter with a happy, caring and safe home and has regularly informed us of our daughters personal development as well as other important related matters verbally and through a daily contact book and this is very important to us as it keeps us very much involved in her daily routine. We are particularly impressed with her behaviour system she has in place as our daughter responds to her calm, firm and fair approach.
We can't thank Gayle enough for all she does for all the families she cares for.

My children are cared for by GLH Childminding when our regular childminder is not available.

They both settled very well on their 1st day and enjoyed playing with the other children.

I have no problem recommedning this childminder.
