Angela has been looking after our 3 year old son for 2 years and we will do everything we can to keep it that way. She has been fantastic from the very start, putting us and our son at ease.

As well as caring for toddlers and pre-schoolers, Ang looks after older primary school aged children who are dropped off at school, making a mixed group around the breakfast and tea table. Our son has developed a close bond with the other kids she cares for, they are more like cousins or siblings than separate families. This is down to the respect Ang instils in the children from her own behaviour, her management of their behaviour and the family atmosphere she creates. Ang places great emphasis on teaching the kids kindness for others, particularly how to treat younger and older children and how to share. Every child is special to her.

The week with Ang is full of fun and laughter, including some structured playgroups and regular sessions she attends, introducing the kids who are not yet at school to routine from a very early age. School holidays are planned out so that there are activities and entertainment for all the children to enjoy, whatever their age. I have lost count of the days out she has taken them on and the number of tips she has given me of places to take my son in the local area.

Ang is very flexible and goes out of her way to help busy parents balance work and home lives. The families who she works with all value her genuine care, friendship and love for our kids, she is an extension of our family. We thank our lucky stars a space was available when we were looking for someone to take care of our son.

Ang also offers a reliable babysitting service. She always agrees to babysit if she can and has only ever refused a request to babysit if she has already agreed to take care of another family. On that occasion she used her initiative to find us another childminder who was available. We have left our second son with Ang since he was 8 weeks old and she is a natural with little babies and older kids alike.

We would not hesitate to recommend Ang to any other families looking for a childminder or a babysitter.

Angela has that special instinct to know exactly what children need and what parents wants for them!

She has been childminding my two youngest children (aged 8 and 4) for the past year.

With the children, she is full of fun and creates positivity and laughter in the simplest things. When she needs to, she handles tricky behaviour with tough love, tact and kindness. At the same time, she juggles all the practical aspects of childcare with great professional skill. Somehow in all weathers and all types of tantrums, she radiates calm and happiness, and gets the children actively involved, and outside, if possible!

Her professionalism also comes through in the way she conducts herself with you as a parent. She is super-organised, considerate and highly responsible. She is naturally supportive person, which puts you at ease as a busy parent.

She has had a massive impact on my children feeling secure during their school week, and starting their schoolday on the best possible note. We'll always be thankful!

Angela has been my childminder for the last 10 years, my eldest is now 12, my middle child 6 and my youngest is 18 months,

She started looking after my first at 5 months old, when I returned to work!

She is amazing with the children, treats them all like family, takes them to playgroups, day trips, parks, picnics, the children come home with lots to tell me and smiles on there faces from having such a fun day!

Her house is fully kitted out for children, with a huge playroom and garden that looks more like a park, she's always greets us with a huge smile and the kids have no problem walking into her home and waving me off to work!

She's brilliant during the holidays, so helpful with school pick ups etc and we would honestly be lost without her!

I couldn't recommend her more highly

Angela is just the perfect person to look after my son. She initially started to babysit my son when he was 2 years old. He got used to her so quickly that (unlike with the previous babysitters I had) he was not bothered when I left the house. He was well-looked after, very happy and all-smiles when I got back.
As a babysitter, Angela is extremely reliable, punctual, trustworthy and professional.
As a consequence, I moved my son out of the nursery so that she can look after him during the day as well (as a childminder). This was a huge step for me as I previously never even entertained the idea of leaving my son with a childminder but Angela's home was definitely a much better place for my son than a nursery.
The very special thing about her was her ability to make a strong bond with children. I feel that when she is looking after my son, it is not a job but a passion or a hobby, something she really enjoys doing.
She also makes sure that the children have plenty of stimulation and physical activity and my son's speech has tremendously improved.
All the kids in Angela's house have a great relationship with each other, partly because they happen to be well-natured and partly because of her great way of dealing with them. I also believe that her age places her at great position to be a great childminder/babysitter.

Angela looks after my 2 children, ages 3 & 1. My children had both been in formal nursery settings but I needed a bit more flexibility and someone close to home. They both enjoyed nursery and I was quite nervous about moving them to a childminder. I had no need for concern. From day one Angela has been absolutely fantastic! Both my children love going to Angela's house and are really thriving with her.

She takes them out nearly every day and they are doing lots of activities and fun things. They come home happy, full of good food and ready for a good sleep to prepare for the next days fun. My 3 year old son is even much fitter than he was at nursery. Whenever possible they get a good walk every day as well as all the activities.

Angela is a warm, friendly and genuine person. She's flexible and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her, as my children are just so happy with her.
