I really cannot rate Julie and Huw highly enough, my little boy has such a great time! He is well cared for, the food he gets is lovely, he is learning so much... couldn't wish for anyone better to take care of my little one. I trust them implicitly, and the advise ive been given has been invaluable, thank you so much!
Huw and Julie are so much more than a childminding team. They provide an excellent and flexible service and they are always willing to offer help and support.
Their high standards and professionalism are second to none.
The playroom and garden would put many nurseries to shame and the meals have made me wish I was staying to lunch! Their gentle and patient approach reassured my daughter very quickly and she loves her days with them.
I am very happy with the care they have provided and I would recommend them very highly.
