I recently posted an add looking for a childminder as I had been let down by a local after school club.
Within minutes of my post, Lesley had called me and we popped to see her.
I am so glad we found her, my daughter loves her and she looks forward to going to her house after school.
Lesley is far cheaper, very efficient and more flexible than the previous club we used.
She is always quick to respond to queries and it is clear the children enjoy their time at her setting.
I would highly recommend Lesley.

Lesley was a great Childminder from the start. We can't thank her enough for caring and looking after our twin 9 year-old boys.

From the start, Lesley knew what she was doing. She met us and listened well to our needs. She also explained her routine and laid down the terms. She is very friendly and great with the kids.

Lesley is amazing helping us in dire times -out of hours- in emergencies. Being a family of doctors, sometimes time is not ours, and she has few times agreed to extend and accommodate our children beyond hours.

She has been understanding of our children's special dietary needs. Our kids loved her, and were always asking to be picked up by her, which was extremely reassuring.

My kids felt happy, safe and I felt they were very well cared for and protected in a nice family setting house.

My kids loved the taste of her cooking, and always preferred tea at hers.

Finally, Lesley was amazing in all aspects, caring, flexible, friendly, and above all, experienced with kids in a wide variety of age groups.

I would recommend her every time.

I was looking for a child minder and thought I would ask on the local facebook page. The amount of people who suggested Lesley put me at ease straight away. She communicated very quickly and invited us for a visit.
The children quickly made themselves at home and were happy to leave us alone to talk. The fact that the children felt comfortable enough to go and play instantly gave me the reassurance I was looking for.

Lesley has a wonderful, caring, understanding nature and has always made me feel that my children are important. They were welcomed into her house and made to feel part of the family. She quickly built a good relationship with them, so much so that they were disappointed when they weren't going to her house.

Her flexibility has been a Godsend and allowed us to continue with our work commitments but feeling reassured that the children were safe, happy and being well looked after.

Lesley always provides the children with snacks lovely home cooked meals, apparently nicer than Mummy's!

I'm so pleased we found Lesley. An absolute star!
