Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Lea. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

We have only positive things to say about Lea and her setting. Our son has been with her for 8 months and we are very impressed by how much he has developed with her: signing, feeding himself, drinking from a cup, painting, drawing, pretend play. He grew in confidence around other children and adults. Most importantly, he is happy and we know that he is in great hands!

I can't recommend Lea highly enough - she really is the real deal and has consistently exceeded our expectations when looking after our toddler. He comes home happy, energized and stimulated after a day with her. She sees the best in each child and they attach to her easily.

My son is a lockdown child and had a lot of separation anxiety when he started with Lea. He was weary of being left with anyone other than me. She provided the security he needed, while exposing him to other adults and children in a fun way, which brought him out of his shell.

Every day the kids get up to different fun activities and it's lovely to receive an update and pictures.

We are absolutely gutted that our son can't continue with Lea as we're moving county.

Lea is a very calm, fun, and positive childminder, turning almost anything into an interesting learning-through-play activity for the children, and she treats each and every child like one of the family.

Lea is very supportive of different parenting styles, is a great communicator and always has useful experience and advice to share.

Inside her setting there’s a good variety of toys, storytelling props, displays from the children and lots of bright educational posters to engage the children. She gets them involved in everything from baking and making to tidying up.

The outside garden area of is very well thought-out and packed full of vibrant colour, sensory, science and role play opportunities. Lea also uses the outdoor space to get the childrens hands dirty with lots of crafts, and caring for plants and animals.

My eldest child has spent 4 years with Lea and has loved every minute! Our youngest adores spending time there too. We can’t express enough how grateful we are for the stable, nurturing environment she has provided throughout and for all the love and joy she has given to our children each day that’s been spent with her.

Thank you Lea xx

Lea provides a safe, happy and nurturing environment for the children. Our son positively enjoyed his time with her and developed in so many ways. Lea provides a structured environment for the children. She encourages existing good habits and teaches new ones.

We all talk to our friends about childcare provision and I feel there is something which sets Lea apart from others. Lea works hard at providing educational play and structured learning activities to help develop the interests and personalities of the children. There are lots of creative, arty type things (something I am just not very good at) in the home plus visits and trips to nearby events and attractions. When we ask our son 'what did you do today' he always has plenty to tell us.

Lea is a straight forward person to deal with. She gives plenty of feedback to parents and it is always constructive. We recommending her without hesitation.

Lea has been looking after my two young children for the past couple of years, then the older one before this.
She takes the boys out to parks and local play activity centres. The house is set up with learning in mind with wall activities in the hallway each one has a coat and hand towel hook and an activities book so I or my wife can keep up to date on their progress and their learning.
Lea is very dedicated to the children, I find her very professional and her house is very clean and set up to be so child friendly. I am always asking her advice as she has so much knowledge on what to do, I leave for work in the morning and drop them at Lea's knowing that my two little ones are happy and safe for the day.

I would 100% recommend this childminder she has Ofsted Award for Outstanding for the past two years which I hear is rare to get now days.
