As I new mum, I found the idea of finding a childminder for my then 9-month-old daughter quite daunting but from the moment we met Priscilla, all my anxieties went away. My daughter and Priscilla made and instant connection and from then on it didn’t feel like I was leaving my child because I knew that she was going to be so well cared for. Priscilla creates a loving, homely environment, yummy home-cooked meals (my daughter never stopped eating!) and is so attentive to each of the little ones. It’s clear when you meet her that this isn’t just a job to her it’s a calling and I would recommend her again and again. My daughter only left to enter a nursery school environment when she turned two and Priscilla is still greatly missed!
Priscilla is simply the best!
My daughter has been with her for over a year now and thoroughly enjoys being under her care. From moment I met Priscilla in her home I felt very comfortable, her place is so clean, lots of toys, books, arts-crafts the garden is great too with lots for the kids to do. I’d been to see a few places but nowhere compared to Priscilla’s with what she could offer.
I was very anxious in the beginning as my daughter was very attached to me and can get quite upset when being left. Priscilla made me feel at ease, ensuring that I was sent regular updates and photographs. It's never easy leaving your child, but Priscilla and her family have truly become a big part of our lives, for my daughter its a home from home.
She has lots of activities to offer both in her house setting and outside and I have seen my daughter developing significantly in her care. She seems to be always very attentive and fully aware of the developmental needs of the children in her care and is extremely generous, patient, and highly skilled when dealing with children in her care.
The daily smile on my daughter's face after a long day, confirms Priscilla is a GREAT childminder!
I would highly recommend her to everyone!
I will be forever grateful that I found Priscilla! My son started was with her 2 days a week from 9 months old and from the moment we met her I knew this was the right place for him and he would be well looked after and happy. Ellis absolutely loved being at Priscillas and I never had any worries whilst he was there. Ellis and I were made to feel so welcome and I felt I could speak to Priscilla about anything. Priscilla is a caring and loving lady and treats the children she looks after as if they were her own. Her setting is so homely and clean and plenty to keep the children occupied. Ellis made friends and learned plenty of new skills whilst in her care. I would class Priscilla as a family friend and was so very sad when it was time to move on. She will always be very special to myself and my son. Thank you for everything.
Our daughter, age 4.5, has been in Priscilla's care twice a week since she was 1 year old. We really cannot speak highly enough of Priscilla & the care she has provided for our daughter. It certainly is a home from home setting that Priscilla provides. Echoing other reviews, we also truly value how our daughter has been so very warmly welcomed into Priscilla's home & family during her time there. The nurturing & enriching environment created by Priscilla and tailored for each child in her care, has supported our daughter's development across all areas in these crucial early years. We are forever grateful that we found Priscilla; and have always had complete peace of mind that our daughter has been in the absolute best of hands during her time there. What more can a parent ask for. We will miss Priscilla. She comes highly recommended.
Priscilla began caring for our 2 lovely boys in 2011. Following a year on maternity leave she resumed caring for our boys and 1 year old daughter. She is amazing with the children and they adore her. She is patient, kind, confident and reliable. She has 3 delightful children of her own and their generosity in relation to both their home and time is a testament to their upbringing. They are gentle and nurturing towards the younger children cared for within their environment and their influence is positive and enriching. Our children enjoy a wide variety of home cooked meals within a family setting. Priscilla's knowledge of the local area and pre-schools/school is excellent. Her home is within walking distance of a lovely park and the play resources both inside but especially outside are exceptional. The children are stimulated through play, conversation and story telling. We are completely confident and happy leaving our children in Priscilla's care.
