Our daughter went to Carole when she was 7 months old until she went to nursery at 3 years. Carole and Dave were like our daughters second family as we didn't have any family close by to help. She loved going there and when she left to go to nursery she was a confident and happy little girl and that's very much thanks to the love she received when in Carole's care. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their service. They were brilliant!

Carole has cared for my children when they were small. She has also helped out with emergency cover and during some school holidays.

She has amazing attention to detail and provides excellent care on an individual basis.

She is totally accommodating and makes everyone welcome. I always felt the children were happy with here and in very safe hands.

I would not hesitate in recommending Carole for her quality childminding services.

Carole and Dave are fantastic! Originally I was worried how my children would get on there (as they only go during the school holidays) but they absolutely love it! It’s like home from home for them!

We always get such a warm welcome when we arrive at the front door and the kids just go straight in with no hesitation whatsoever. I’m at ease when at work as Carole will always keep me updated with how they’re getting on throughout the day. Dave makes sure the kids get out and about which is great too!

I have recommended them already to my friends but would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for caring, professional childcare.

I was really nervous about sending my 1 year old son Hudson to a childminders but after meeting Carole I fully relaxed.
Carole and Dave are a fantastic couple and brilliant childminders.
Hudson loved going and really came out of himself.
I would recommend them to anyone

Carole is exactly what I had hoped for when looking for someone to take care of my boys.
My eldest who’s nearly 10 settled in amazingly from 9 months old and my youngest who’s nearly 6 settled in the same. Caroles home is clean,tidy but most importantly safe and fun for the children. Her husband Dave is fantastic and the boys think he’s super cool. My children still talk about ‘those days at Caroles’ and I’m pretty sure they would move in if they could.
There’s nothing better than knowing your children are happy and in good care. Would highly recommend.
