Hazel cared for our 2 children (ages 2 and 4) for 9 months... Our arrangement only ended because Hazel was unable to do our son's school drop off/ pick up when he started Reception.
Both were extremely happy and comfortable with Hazel. She quickly gained insight into their personalities/ needs and was able to support them and help them to develop. Hazel is caring, fun, positive with a great knowledge of children's development. She has lots of toys and resources to jeep the children entertained. She was also extremely flexible with taking our son to and from nursery and minding on extra ad hoc days.

Hazel looks after my two daughters 2 days a week and she is an absolute god-send.

She ensures that my eldest daughter is stimulated with lots of activities, arts and crafts and imaginative play. My 1 year old has multiple food allergies and I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Hazel was able to offer special meals for my daughter which were egg, dairy, gluten and soya free - far more than most nurseries would do in my experience.

Hazel is very accommodating and goes out of her way to be flexible - we have gone to her with last minute requests for odd hours which she has been happy to cover.

In short, my girls love their "Hazel days". Knowing they are with her makes me feel much happier about having to leave them when I go to work. I know they are well cared for, well fed and stimulated.

Hazel comes extremely highly recommended and is indispensable to us!

Hazel was wonderful with my daughter who she looked after from 2years - 4years. She has a kind, caring and homely environment. She was a big part of my daughters pre school years and is still still talked about, even though my daughter is now nearly 6. Hazel was very accommodating of our family's needs, with flexibility and great communication, which catered for the many the many different versions of timetables and nursery pick ups we dealt with. If we had not have moved out of the area we would still be using her without hesitation.

Hazel is a fantastic, lovely lady and I cannot fault her, in fact I can't recommend her highly enough ... she is a warm loving, friendly, bubbly experienced childminder. Her house is spotless and welcoming and she always has lots of toys on hand for children of all ages to play with. I trusted her 100% with my children and they were very happy to spend time after school and during the school holidays with her, doing fun and exciting things. My two boys were very sorry when they had to say goodbye to her and the other children in her care, which only ended because I started working locally.

Hazel is incredibly helpful, supportive and flexible and I would be very happy to recommend her to other parents seeking a childminder"
