My year old daughter had an overnight stay with Loretta. She made me feel at ease by sending her qualifications, sending videos of where my daughter would be staying etc and kept me updated while she had my daughter. She was able to pick up and drop off (as I do not drive) and my daughter came back very smiley.
100% recommend!!

Awww many thanks for the lovely review. I try to reassure parents as much as possible by sending pics/videos throughout the time their child is with me. Also I try to help parents by offering transport if I can. Girly was so sweet, smiley and well behaved so please contact me again if the need arises.

Our 5-year old son has been staying with Loretta for over a year now after school and during school holidays and absolutely loves it. Loretta always tries to find new activities (seasonal) to entertain the children and our son never gets bored. He has also met lots of new friends as Loretta cares for several other children and they all get on very well. I highly recommend Loretta's services if you are looking for a "feel at home" place for you child in the Kempston area.

Thankyou for your lovely review. We always have lots of fun and there’s never a dull moment! He’s a very sweet, well mannered boy who’s a pleasure to care for.

Prior to meeting Loretta, my daughter was afraid of cats, but Loretta found a way to make her feel comfortable and reassure her - by the end of her first day she enjoyed being around her fluffy cats and looked forward to going back.

My daughter always talks about Loretta and the various activities she enjoys with her such as Lego Club and going to local parks. She also likes playing in her garden, playing with the other children that Loretta cares for and looking after the cats. Loretta is chatty and always thinking about activities to do with the children and always suggests activities that I can do with my daughter on the weekends.

Thankyou for your review. She's a lovely polite and helpful girl and a pleasure to care for.

Our little one is with Loretta since mid April 5 days / week and loves it! She has so many activities for him and the rest of the children that he never wants to leave in the evening! There are activities in doors when it is raining but most of the time she is bringing him to groups, parks (water park in the summer) museums etc. My sister in law's childminder doesn't even do 1/3 of what Loretta proposes! A good mix of Nanny Mcphee and Mary Poppins! Very happy and very glad we found her!

Thankyou so much for your kind words and yes we love being busy outdoors. It’s always lovely seeing Baby Boys happy little face every morning but not so sweet when he doesn’t want to leave at home time!

Loretta is a wonderful childminder. Very passionate about her work, with years of experience and my daughter absolutely love her. She puts a lot of effort to entertain children and make them feel happy and safe. My daughter Laura was staying with Lorreta for the school holidays and she absolutely loved it. I am so pleased that this is not a stay at home childminder. They always do something and never get bored. She takes children to the park, playground or even to the Play House with no extra cost. She also have a big garden with swing and a slide and many toys to keep children entertain at all times. So far this is the best childminder that my daughter ever went to and for me this is very important as I want her to feel happy and I know she is in good hands. We definitely come back in October half term.

Thankyou so much for your kind words Kasia. I do try to give the children plenty of outdoors activities aswell as those at home. Today for example was home play, then the giant sand pit visit, Danish Camp bouncy castle and nature walk, feeding the ducks and fish at Wixams, the sand park, picnic in the garden, making play doh then a trip to the vets! I love being busy :-)

Laura is a lovely, sociable girl and she got on brilliantly with the other children. It would be a pleasure to welcome her back.

Thankyou again.

Loretta provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise. I know my daughter has enjoyed sand, writing and drawing, as well as playing with her beautiful cats .

I have a complete picture of her whole day including what she has eaten, and all her activities. This helps me to feel involved with her care and that I can talk to her about her day.

I am thoroughly happy with the level of care my daughter receives and I’m certain that being in such a positive and happy environment is helping her develop into a confident and self assured little girl. Thanks so much Loretta.

Thankyou Cora for your lovely words. I was so happy to help you out for the short emergency time you needed but if your circumstances change-you know where I am!

Been with loretta for nearly 3 years now, brilliant childminder. Always out and about with the kids doing things. Always there to talk to, very flexible and accomodating. I will not be leaving untill i no longer need a childminder as i couldnt ask for better.

My little boy has only been with Loretta for a month but he is doing really well we had never been apart before so was worried about leaving him but he settled in quite quickly and Loretta was very understanding about his difficulties with going to new places and his certain fears, she took it slow with him and he has come on leaps and bounds since being there, im a very glad i sent my son to Loretta and i would defiantly recommend her.

Loretta looked after my son from an early age, up until he was about three.
I never had any worries about leaving george as Loretta couldnt of done more for him.
Her skills and paitence were amazing, George really loved going to Loretta's and it was only a change in our circumstances which lead to him leaving.
I would fully reccomend Loretta to any parent who's looking for a reliable, honest and very caring childminder as she's about the best there is!
Loretta would always help us out at the last minute if my shift at work would change even on Christmas day as I am still very gratefull.
George blossomed under her guidance, she made a big impression upon my son
