review of teresa l - Childminder in Vauxhall
Would recommend highly
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!
