I've had 2 of my children go to Andreas and Hakan and now my youngest is with them. They are amazing and have so much fun. They go to zoo, Lego land and do many fun activities. Food is healthy and smells amazing I almost wish I was going there. However above all my children loved it and the little one also. He is so happy going and is in such a good mood when i collect him. He doesnt want to leave. Brilliant childminder and i highly recommend Andreas xx

Though my little one was only with andi for 2 days she felt 100% comfortable with them. She was stimulated aswell as look after and had 2 amazing fun days out (which were included in the price) Andi and her husband also went of their way to be helpful and put myself and partners mind at rest would 100% recommend.

We have used Andrea and Hakan as our childminders since Andrea first started eight and half years ago. We wouldn't use anyone else, they are a welcoming and friendly family and provide excellent care, give lots of love and attention. The children enjoy fun days out from trips to the park, play groups, soft play and even the zoo. Andrea provides a well balanced diet and encourages children to try new things with great success. Their flexible approach to meet your individual requirements set them above other childminders. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Hi i had andie has my childminder over the past three years through my nurse training to look after my two sons. Both of my sons really enjoyed going to andies house over the past three years. She has been very flexible within the hours I have needed her for especially with my very early shifts. I would recommend Andie 100% for full time childcare.

I've known Andrea a few year now, she used to care for my niece Madison - however knowing Andrea has been such a pleasure! I now have my own little girl who is now 28 months old, my daughter has been going to Andrea's childminding since she was just 14 month old. Maisie loves going to Andrea's, she also loves bonding with new people and also exploring. Andrea looks after Maisie really well, I appreciate everything she's done for Maisie. Maisie loves going to different places with Andrea, i.e. runamok & different play centres, Maisie loves going to runamok with Andrea. I would highly recommend Andrea, I hardly ever worry when Maisie is at her house as I know she is in safe hands!! Andrea's second home is at Andrea's, I love it there and I know for a fact Maisie does too!! :)
