Rose and Charlene where do I start, they are absolutely amazing and I couldn’t recommend them enough.
‘Rose’s House’ is like a second family to my little boy Teddy where we have always felt so welcome and at ease.
Rose always goes that extra mile with the children she cares for, she has helped us so much as first time parents during different development stages, including potty training which felt effortless with Rose’s support.
Teddy is forever telling me about the activities he has done at Rose’s, which are always engaging and different and accommodate all the children. Teddy loves Rose’s playroom and outdoor space, and really enjoys the days out he goes on - the museum, ferry, pumpkin picking, Martin Mere, local children’s centres to name a few! Rose offers home cooked meals for the children and my usually fussy little boy eats them all!
Teddy has been with Rose and Charlene since 10 months old, he’s now a 3.5 year old independent and intelligent little boy.
I have always felt reassured and safe with Teddy in Rose & Charlene’s care, they are nurturing and kind and have a lovely relationship with all the children they look after.
They are both so professional and ‘Rose’s House’ offers exactly the childcare setting we wanted for Teddy - a friendly family, educational home setting.

I can not thank Rose & Charlene enough for everything they done for Thomas for the 16 months he was with them.
From visiting them for the very first time right up until my sons last day they made us feel so welcomed and at ease with leaving Thomas in their care. Rose’s house has such a loving family home feel to it with an amazing play room for the kids with so much to do.
Thomas came on so much in the time he was with them and I absolutely loved hearing him learn new things and telling me all about his day.
While Thomas had Rose as a childminder he started toilet training. Not only did both Rose & Charlene support Thomas with this they supported me as a first time parent and helped me so much around what can be such a challenging time as a parent.
I can not recommend Rose & Charlene enough, they are such kind & caring people and it shows in the way they care for children how much they love the job they do.
They will always be my first choice if i ever need childcare in the future.
Thanks so much Rose & Charlene, you both really are the best of the best xxx
