Precious gemz is an amazing childminders! My son started at 4 months and Charlene went above and beyond to ensure he settled in and had familiar toys etc. Charlene is so accommodating and my son has fun every single day. Can’t ask for anymore. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

🥰❤️ your more then welcome Rach, so happy you chose Precious Gemz for your childcare needs. We all adore little man always happy and a pleasure to have aroundxx

Charlene is the love and light my son adores. She makes sure to follow his dietary requirements correctly. She is loving and caring exactly what I was looking for in a childminder. She is the mother my son needs when I have to work. The environment is always clean and smells clean. She is always willing to help and super understanding to all needs. I was worried about my son going to a childminder rather than a nursery but he gets the one to one care he deserves and he’s made some lovely little friends. The communication from Charlene to parent is perfect! She literally adapts to the child’s needs. I am so pleased we went with Charlene I couldn’t be happier. Truly one of the most honest and caring people I have met. A true asset to the world.

Aww you guys mean the world to me too, such a lovely family. Its been a pleasure to care for your son x

My daughter started January by Charlene and she loves her dearly. She's attentive and caring. She's really hands on with everything from potty training to keeping the mind active. She comes highly recommended. I love that she's into healthy food and low sugar intake. A pleasant soul to be around. Very transparent with me and makes you and your child feel very comfortable. I cherish her ❤️ dearly.

Thankyou for choosing me as your childminder its been a pleasure helping and watching your baby turn into a lovely little lady x

My son has been with Charlene for the last 6 months and i cannot fault her. He has come such a long way since starting, with learning numbers and the alphabet. He loves his time there and runs in every morning. Charlene is easy to talk too and you can see that she is a great asset to the children there. Meal times are great for him and he tries lots of different foods. Fun activities like nature walks, going to the park, messy play and painting are general day to day activities.

This is lovely, thank you. It has been such a pleasure looking after little man, his such a fast learner and really cares for the other children helping them get involved in activities.

Charlene has been my son’s childminder for over a year. She has done her best to cater to his interests and because of this he has developed so much. He’s always excited to go to her establishment and never wants to leave!
Charlene is easy to talk to and very loving to all children! I would recommend her 100/%
