After deciding to return to full time work just after moving to a new city, I found myself in the dilemma of choosing between childminders and nurseries. I thank to God that I found Abi - a childminder who treats him in such a loving and caring way that he feels like home at her place and even remembers her during weekend! For me my son's emotional security and development is most important. I feel he should not feel parents' absence at a childminder/nursery and my son never does that with Abi. She keeps him engaged in activities, pamper him with love and guides him like a mother..what more I could wish for!! God bless her!
I can honestly say Abi has been an excellent childminder. My son does a variety of activities there - ranging from painting, craft, puzzle-solving to trips to the nearby parks and play-areas. Abi made my transition to work so smooth which I never imagined. He has been learning new things at her place and improved at many aspects. She gives me proper report of what he did for the whole day and what he ate. He was fussy eater but Abi spent a dedicated time to make him eat good diet. His eating habits have improved, touchwood, after he has started going to Abi's place.

All in all a fantastic, warm, enthusiastic, cheerful, family-type childminders where you know your little one is not only looked after but truly cared for the way you would look after him.
