My daughter has been going to Gail since she was a year old. Going back to work after maternity leave was an anxious time and I wasn’t sure about leaving my daughter with someone else. I shouldn’t have been worried at all, Gail has been great with my daughter and she loves going there. I feel happy in knowing that Gail is going to take good care of my daughter while I’m at work and my daughter absolutely loves it. I feel she has come along leaps and bounds and there’s always a variety of activities during the day to keep the children entertained. Gail keeps my updated throughout the day with photos, videos and messages and they are always great to see.

Gail and her family are really lovely and I would highly recommend.

My boy has been going to Gail since he was 10months. He has always loved going to her welcoming home and loved playing with her family and other children in her care. She is always thinking of extras and extending the fun for all her children. Lots of lovely outdoor learning for example Forest School sessions, Muddy Kitchen, planting. I love getting pictures of what he is getting up to throughout the day.

Would highly recommend, Gail is excellent at what she does makes the parent feel at ease and the child. I put my son Ethan with Gail when he was just 1 and was the best thing I did. He came out his shell and was happier than ever he got to make new friends, and got to go out to parks and go for walks and attended different classes bookbug soft play centres etc. I was always made to feel Ethan was safe and cared for. Ethan loved being With Gail and also grew close to her 2 girls who are just so lovely and caring. My son always had a smile when getting dropped of in the mornings and I regularly got updates throughout the day what my little boy was up to and pictures of him playing and eating haha. If I ever have another child I would not hesitate sending them to Gail where I no they will be loved and well looked after.

My 2 year old daughter Georgie has been with Gail since January and it has been the best decision we made. Georgie absolutely loves going to Gail’s and loves her two girls also.
Her home is ideal for young kids with plenty of room, a fantastic garden and plenty of fun and educational toys.
Gail has helped so much with a routine for Georgie and sends me regular updates and pictures while at work letting me know what she is up to and eating and her nap times etc which helps put me at ease. Georgie used to attend a nursery and she just didn’t take to it at all, she would scream every morning when we drove up outside which made going to work very stressful and made me anxious all day, now we drive in to Gail’s estate and she shouts “Gail, where are you?” What a difference.
Gail regularly attends book bug, toddler groups, softplay and the park which I love, it’s great she is having so much fun even when I’m at my work.
I really feel that Gail and her family have welcomed Georgie in to their home and their lives and she has came along leaps and bonds since then.
It’s a long way off but I don’t want to ever say bye to Gail.
Would highly recommend Gail to anyone.

Gail is wonderful with my daughter Amara, they go on frequent day trips to the park and regularly attend different local groups (bookbug etc). Her home is perfect for children, lots of space to play and a very toddler/child friendly garden. I am confident that every day Amara spends with Gail she is having a great time.

Going back to work after maternity leave was always going to be an anxious time especially for a first time mum leaving my daughter with a non family member for the first time but Gail has been great, sending me updates and photos throughout the day to put my mind at ease.

Amara loves going to Gail’s, playing with the other children and has come on great in the last few months. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Gail to other parents.
