Michelle has been our childminder for the past three years for our two daughters who she has cared for from an early age (9 Months old).

From first meeting Michelle we knew we wanted our children to be in her care, she exceeded our expectations with our first daughter and we had no hesitation in sending our second.

Michelle provides an environment that surpasses what you would expect from a childminder. The setting is both welcoming, educational and relaxed.

Michelle follows the early year foundation criteria thoroughly by organising a range of themed activities which are inspiring and promoted both our daughters' learning experience.

We have been delighted with the progress of our children throughout their time with Michelle and have no hesitation in recommending Michelle as a carer.
