Teresa is an exceptional childminder; she is very loving and kind. Our daughter has been under her care since she was six months old. At that young age, our preference was to have Farah in a home environment rather than a nursery. She settled in remarkably quick which was fantastic as we were both back to full-time work. It also worked out well because a few months later Teresa started minding another girl the same age as Farah so they have been friends and grown up together the last two years. Farah has also settled in extremely well into Teresa's home, she is especially close to Teresas daughter, they have always had a close bond. Teresa also has a pet dog, Molly who Farah absolutely adores and she is constantly hugging him like a teddy. Molly is very good around children and she has been adorable with Farah.
Teresa keeps a daily diary and she takes the children to play group every week a couple of times, the library and for walks in the park or down by the river. She is also very good at arts and crafts and always remembers special days in the year e.g mother's Day, birthdays etc.
Farah has never in the two years not wanted to go to Teresa's, she is very happy to go in the mornings and this had just meant it not being stressful for us as we're just content knowing she's happy and she has thrived in the environment.
We're really sorry to leave Teresa and the other children but we just felt it is the right time now to transition into a Montessori setting where she can further develop. Would I change anything up to now, not at all, I'd do it all again tomorrow!

Teresa and her whole family are so kind and welcoming. Our son warmed to her very quickly and it’s clear that she loves her job - she’s really great with all the kids. Her home is cozy and safe but she’s always out and about with the kids, even bringing them to the library to pick out a book. She looked after our son from 7months to 2.5 years and he had a wonderful time and developed really quickly in her care. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy, kind and dedicated childminder.

There is a reason Teresa is rated Outstanding! We could not recommend her more highly. We first entrusted our baby into Teresa's care when she was 8 months old, and we felt she was too young for nursery. We were anxious first-time parents with no family in London and Teresa was able to figure out our baby and give us fantastic sleep advice - helping us create a routine that saw our sleep-resistant baby begin to sleep right through the night! Teresa from the outset has been so caring and informative, and our baby girl has thrived in her care. She provides a stimulating, safe environment and takes our baby to soft play and outdoor activities. She gives her lots of nurturing attention and has helped our weaning programme with delicious meals and healthy snacks. We are so grateful to the experience Teresa has shared and only hope we can continue to work with her when we return from the U.S, as she is understandably sought-after.

I would highly recommend Teresa, who has cared for my baby since she was 10 months old, now she is 2 years old. My baby settled with Teresa, and considers her like a family member, in a warm, loving environment, a perfect home from home.

Teresa takes time and care to get to know each and every baby she is caring for, giving them the love and individual attention they each need. They spend time in productive and educational activities, going out, messy play at home, baking, dressing up, and my baby really looks forward to spending time with Teresa and her lovely family.

Teresa provides babies with healthy, home cooked food, healthy snacks and fruits, taking into account our own cultural food requirements and her home is clean, warm and inviting and she keeps in touch with us regularly.

I would have no hesitation providing Teresa with any reference and recommending her services to any parent looking for an excellent, childminder.

Teresa has been looking after our little boy (nearly two) for almost a year now (since Jan 2015). We could not be happier with the care he has had from her over this period. She is incredibly kind, warm and calm and he is very happy with her. In addition all her family have welcomed him and really made him feel part of the family. He always looks forward to seeing everyone!

When he first started, she helped him to settle quickly and got him into a great routine. She takes him out to different activities, including playgroups, the library, park and farm. They do lots of reading stories, creative and physical activities and he is even starting to learn some letters!

She is focused on his development and in addition to helpful and specific daily feedback on what he's been doing, we get regular feedback about his progress and she actively identifies and engages him in activities to support his development.

We are extremely happy with all aspects of his care and wouldn't change a thing!
