We pride ourselves on our Reggio Emilia inspired setting and believe in being a guide for children in their own curiosity and creative thinking. Our roles are incredibly rewarding and we love what we do.

I was struggling to find a childminder that would have our daughter with her being such a young age and having only a small amount of time before being back to work and I found bluebells and blossoms.

Rhianne and Sophie have been absolutely amazing with Aurora and she has settled in very well and developed a close bond with them both which took a while because she wouldn’t even leave my side without crying, but they were very patient with her and with the knowledge and experience they have shows they are very passionate about what they do. And it was a great feeling when I was able to drop her off for the first time and she didn’t even cry which the settling sessions helped a lot.

The placement is great and our daughter is very happy, safe and is developing & learning new things she loves to play and explore new things we are very grateful.😊

We were recently let down with our previous childminder at short notice and found Bluebells and Blossoms and wow what a blessing in disguise it really has been.

Rhianne and Sophie have been absolutely fantastic with our little boy who has previously had difficultly settling at other childcare settings. One of the big things that drew us to them when we first met, was how much their experience and knowledge shone through not only in their setting, but in them as a team. It’s also obvious that they really care and are passionate about what they do, which for us was an absolute must!

We were so impressed with their settling in process, everything felt like such a personal experience and that has certainly continued since he has started his sessions.

We can’t even truly begin to express how grateful we are to the both of them for taking such good care of our son. He’s confident, secure, happy, safe and we really trust them to look after him. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
