linda has looked after my little boy for just over 2 years now. When he went to her from a sure start nursery we were concerned about how behind he was in his development and horrified at the observations from the previous nursery, Linda worked with him in a fun playful way to bring his development up to speed he is now in school and academically above some of his class mates. Linda regularly practices things like colours, name writing and numbers with him and he has a good sized cooked meal before coming home every evening and in summer plays outdoors which is something i really appreciate and want my child brought up. Linda has been amazing in supporting my son through mine and his dads separation alerting us to any behavior out of the ordinary for him and giving him support where needed an been flexible around my working commitments. Genuinely can't recommend her enough. My son can't wait to go to hers in the morning before school.

Linda is a lovely friendly lady with a very welcoming home. My boys aged 8 and 5 absolutely love being in her care. Linda had ample toys, books and arts and crafts to help stimulate the children and also a large back garden with outdoor toys for them to play out in. Can't recommend her enough.

My 9yo son has been with linda since she started childminding and he loves going. I also now send my 2yo daughter to linda and she also loves going..she is amazed with the playroom and all the toys. Linda is very friendly and takes a great intrest in all aspects of the childrens lives, all the children are treated like family. My children love all the activities linda does and also the days out. Would highly recommend linda as a childminder.
