Racheal has looked after my daughter since she was 6 months old and she is now 5. I can't recommend Racheal enough she has become a very dear friend to me and my family and has helped me through a very difficult period in my life. Not only has Racheal been there for me and my children but also her family have also become like family to me and my children. After going through a difficult divorce I needed childcare for my son as well and Racheal was so accommodating. My children are both so happy and love going to Rachael's intact they very often don't want to leave they love going to so much. The children are able to participate in various activities, and there is never a dull moment. The food Racheal provides is all home cooked and this has helped greatly with my children as they are now more wiling to try new things. I felt he price I pay just doesn't reflect my gratitude to Racheal and her family and would like to take this opportunity to thank Racheal from the bottom of my heart id be lost without her x

I have two children and have had childminders before. Rachael is the best child minder I've had and she takes care of my two children 7 and 2 as if they were her own. I had to increase my work hours recently and felt bad about it but my children are so happy with her it takes all the guilt away. She goes above and beyond and I can totally rely on her when things don't go to plan. Her house is perfectly set up for children of all ages. Her two children are a credit to her and it's clear to see from them what a good role model she is. As for her partner Mark my kids love him too. I would definitely recommend her.

Rachel has looked after my daughter for the past 6 years. She offers a very professional service that is friendly and welcoming to children of all ages, and to the parents. She encourages a wide range of activities which have helped in the development of my child as a toddler and now whilst she is at school. There is a fantastic bond between Rachel and the children, making them feel like they are apart of her home, my daughter often wants to stay longer than scheduled because she enjoys herself there so much. Rachel supplies all home cooked meals which the children enjoy. I highly recommend Rachel as a childminder if you want an excellent service which is friendly, caring and reliable, she will always go that extra mile to fulfil your requirements.

Rachael has provided childcare for my son for 7 years and has always been very professional and flexible. My son still enjoys spending time with Rachael , it is like a home from home for him . He has learned so much from the wide variety of activities provided , grown in confidence and is eager to try new things . Rachael takes the children on outings during school holidays and is always available for help and advice . My son really enjoys baking , gardening and the vast amount of craft activities provided. I highly recommend Rachael as a Childminder.
