Both my children (son 4 and daughter 1) were looked after by Esther and she is simply wonderful. My daughter was only 6mths when she started and was looked after 5 days a week. My daughter was so happy with Esther and she loved being with her. It made me feel so relaxed that she was happy and enjoyed being with there. They would play games, go for walks, go to different groups and meet other children. Esther has such a flexible approach that nothing is too much. She loves the kids and in return the kids love her. Her own boys are a complete blessing to her. They are lovely, well mannered, polite children and enjoy playing with the little ones as well.

She was the first childminder I felt totally comfortable and relaxed with. She has a lovely home with lots of space for the children to play. They do creative activities in the garden and the kids always have lots of fun.

Overall I have never had a such a fantastic childminder for my children and they continue to miss her. My daughter is 20mths now and we have relocated, yet she still remembers and asks for Esther. Knowing your child(ren) are safe, well cared for and happy is so important when you are working, and you will always be guaranteed happy children with Esther. She has bags of experience and makes children feel completely at home when they are with her.
