My daughter started with Angela after we moved to the area when she was approaching her second birthday and has been with her for the past two years. Unfortunately, we have now moved on as she has just started pre-school.

From the moment we viewed Angela's house and met with her and her family (two older girls and husband) I knew that this was the place for my daughter to attend. I couldn't have asked for a more safe, secure and friendly environment to leave my daughter in. After some initially settling in time we were all extremely happy with the outcome.

Angela has looked after my daughter for 3 days a week for the past 2 years. She has been flexible with changes at work as and when they occur and this has kept my mind at ease if we ever needed to change timings to the day. Angela provides a healthy breakfast and lunch each session and fed my daughter a dinner which I provided.

Angela has a wonderful network of other childminders and support around the local area and this is evident in the experiences and playgroups she attends each week. She ensures that no matter what age the child, they all have a fulfilled day with her. Angela happily relays at the end of each session the days events and what my daughter has eaten etc which is always lovely to hear.

It has been lovely receiving daily photos along with more formal profiles and tracking sheets each term. Angela always keeps me up to date each session with information or photos and is always on hand with a text message for reassurance if needed.

My daughter has grown in confidence and has been exposed to a wealth of experiences over the 2 years she has been with Angela and it has set her up perfectly for pre-school. We cannot thank you enough, we will always keep in touch even now we have moved on.

My daughter Chloe has been with Angela since she was 21 months, and sadly after just over 2 years, we have had to say goodbye to her as I am expecting baby number 2.

Chloe had previously been at a local nursery, and I was left very disheartened when I would pick up my previously confident and sociable girl absolutely crying her eyes out. It wasn't the right environment for her, so I looked into childminders. After visiting 4 or 5 in the local area, I immediately clicked with Angela, and I knew she was the right fit for my daughter!

The bond between them was instant, and Angela treated Chloe like her own from Day 1. The difference in Chloe was amazing- she absolutely thrived in Angela's care, and there were no tears at pick up anymore, which was such a relief!!

Everyday was an adventure at Angelas- they visited multiple toddler groups in the week, went on trips to local garden centres, parks, play dates with other childminders, tons of creative activities at home (including Chloe's favourite- making and playing with homemade play dough!). Angela's house is immaculate and she has a beautiful garden for the children to play in. She was also very flexible and accommodating if we needed to drop or pick Chloe up at slightly different times.

But for me, the thing I love the most is that Angela feels like family now. Chloe loves her to pieces, and always tells me how much she misses her when she isn't there! Chloe was welcomed into Angela's family, and she absolutely dotes on Angela's husband and two lovely daughters, who went above and beyond to make Chloe feel special. It was a home away from home for Chloe, and I didn't worry about her one bit when I was at work! I know Chloe and Angela will always have a special bond, and know we will stay in touch for many years to come!

Angela looked after Millie for me two days a week since she was 5 months old. With Millie being so young it was extremely hard for me to leave her but Angela was great, particularly at settling my mind and reassuring me.

Millie has loved being looked after Angela and her family who are also very welcoming.

Angela was flexible when I needed her to be which was great and a godsend with my work!

I wouldn't hesitate recommending Angela at all. Out of all the childminders I saw, which was a lot, Angela stood out and lived up to my expectations.

Angela looked after my 2 children for 3 years and was always very accommodating and reliable.

The children totally adore her and will always speak about their time with her and the activities they would do.

I would highly recommend Angela to anyone.
