My daughters have been going to Rebecca for almost 6 months now and they couldn't be happier. It's such a good sign when they both run in on a morning and my youngest cries when I pick her up!
I spoke to lots of childminders prior to settling on Happy Dayz. I got a good vibe from Rebecca. She was friendly, warm and welcoming when I spoke to her over the phone. Exactly like she is in person!
I was so nervous about sending the girls to a childminder during the middle of a pandemic but as a student nurse it's paramount they are in childcare. I needed have worried. Rebecca has always been upfront about safety being paramount and nothing will compromise that. Social distancing and covid19 rules are always adhered to and Rebecca has been amazingly fantastic with the fact my hours/days have changed and has accommodated us where she can.
I think of Rebecca now as a friend and love that there's such a close bond between her and my girls. Everything from fees, allergies, food preferences has never been an issue. We work together as a team to sort out any issues and I'm sure the girls will continue to go for a really long time!
Although our time with Rebecca and the team has been short, they have been incredibly welcoming and provided great care for our little one. These are the first people we have left our child with and he has been able to form a bond with everyone. Rebecca was very flexible and supportive in terms of settling in sessions and making us all feel at ease. Thank you!
I moved house in May and decided to go with happydayz as they were close to my new house and were very flexible with hours unlike nurseries where you have to pay for full sessions. I am delighted with the move as Rebecca and her mother and mother in law are so loving and caring with axl and has that personal touch nurseries just don’t have I feel way more relaxed at work knowing axl else like he’s at home get his cuddles that he loves and is fed really well (he had a huge appetite) rebecca gives him all home cooked food and healthy snacks. Axl can also be very accident prone but in the past 5 month with Rebecca he has never had a bump. He loves going to Rebecca’s never had any tears he tries to open her door before she answers and Rebecca sends me direct pictures sometimes of his days and what he’s been up to which is just lovely when I’m at work. He enjoys arts crafts and day trips here. I highly recommend Rebecca.
Although our time with Rebecca was brief, in that short time she demonstrated that she was a very friendly and flexible childminder. She was extremely kind and patient not only with us and our situation but also with our daughter who is by no means a quiet character. It was the first time we had left our child in anyone elses care and we were grateful to recieve photos and videos which showed our daughter being welcomed and cared for by the whole family. We were always certain that our child was affectionately cared for by all of Rebecca's team.
None of my children have been to a childminder before so I was naturally apprehensive about sending them. Especially my youngest who was so clingy and wouldn't go to anyone other than me. Becky was amazing from our first visit where her gentle and friendly nature were evident and the children took to her straight away.
In just 3 months, I've seen progress with all 3 children but more noticeably, I've seen a massive improvement in Matthew's confidence and independence and his speech has vastly improved. The children adore Becky, Pam and Ryan and have been welcomed into their family like they belong there. Fuss and cuddles are available in abundance and I feel happy leaving my children with someone who clearly loves and cares for them. I couldn't ask for anyone better to leave my most important people with.
