We met Heather through childcare.co.uk when we first moved to the UK and I’m so glad that we did. She is kind, honest and has an extremely caring and placid nature and our children absolutely adored her.
Heather babysat at our house on many occasions as well as looked after our children at her home where she also cares for other children throughout the week. She is a fully trained and qualified child minder and it shows in the way she interacts with the children. She provides them with food and lots of toys at her home as well as other educational activities. At one point she even had tadpoles so that the kids could watch them grow and turn into frogs. I had a lot of hesitations about leaving our children with someone who we didn’t know but Heather has been wonderful and we would highly recommend her.

Thank you Chantel for your amazing review. I always enjoyed helping you and your lovely family. Thank you for always being kind and considerate. The children and I miss you but from your photos the children look very happy and settled in Australia. I wish you all well.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Heather for all her assistance with my 2 year old Oscar. Heather bent over backwards to work with me in order to work around the difficult arrangement I had with Oscar’s mum. Heather even agreed to go and collect Oscar for me from his mum’s, not many child minders would have agreed to do this. As for her care and compassion it has been second to none. Oscar is not such a fan of nursery but he absolutely loves going to Heather’s. She has so many toys for him to play with, she takes him out to the local park. When I pick him up he is always in the middle of playing a game or doing some colouring and drawing with her. Heather also follows the EYFS framework. Oscar always tells me “Daddy I had fun”. I cannot thank or recommend Heather enough. I know that Oscar is always safe, happy and well looked after when with her and the level of care she provides is of the highest standard. Heather is just fantastic!
