Mary Lou, I could trust this lady with everything. She is a breathe of fresh air. So caring, so kind and nothing is ever a problem. She will go above and beyond for your child and parents. She has made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Her house is spotless and inviting. Her family are so so lovely & caring. My child absolutely loves coming to Mary Lous when I go off to work. She does so so much with the children & I personally feel my child has come on leaps and bounds with their learning! She is the safeguarding queen and is up to date with everything she needs to know. We have constant flow of updates and pictures whilst at work which really makes me happy as I felt I was going to miss out on. I think it will be sad when September comes and my little one has to go to school. We will Miss Mary Lou very much. Thank you x

Marylou looked after my daughter for a few days per week, and when she started school Marylou would take her and collect her. My daughter adores Marylou, and so do I. She is lovely and was so good with my daughter. I never had to worry about my daughter as I trust Marylou and knew that she would take good care of my daughter. We became good friends and she even came to my wedding. I would highly recommend Marylou!

My little boy absolutely loved going to Marylou. Her vast experience with children is fantastic. Nothing is too much for and she and her family are always happy to help I'm any way they can. It was a pleasure to see my little boy enjoy every moment he spent with her and he other children.
