A non-smoking policy is in force in my home and garden at all times and i expect visitors to respect my policies. I drive a 9 seater car which is fully insured for my childminding business. I have car seats from age 9mths up to 11yrs which means i can easily accomodate childminding children on day trips out to places such as Rother Valley, play centres (Runaround bowling, Graves park Aston Springs Farm .Museum ) I enjoy working with children and in accepting them into our home, I aim to make them feel part of the family. ( I have a summer/winter house for the garden which I use as a playroom for the children. I live in a three bedroom house with a secure garden. My living room is used for quiet time ie story time, chill time . The kitchen is where we eat our snacks and meals.

I have looked after many children from a very young age, and have then gone on to look after their younger siblings when they have arrived. I have also gained a lot of experience working with children with special needs including AUTISM and ADHD.

My son and daughter both attend Sue's House only in the holiday time. They absolutely love their time with Sue. She does various activities and the kids always come home happy. I'm very happy with the service Sue provides and would deffinatly recommend.
My 3 boys have been attending Sue’s House for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier to have found her. My Boys are 9, 4 and 2 and all thoroughly enjoy their time at Sue’s. Just this morning my youngest ran all the way to her house and couldn’t get through the front door quick enough.
Sue is extremely patient and the way she engages with children of all ages is admirable. My youngest amazes me every day with what he learns whilst in her care. He often starts singing songs or counting and repeating what he has learnt that day and it’s lovely to see the positive impact Sue has on his learning and development.
Sue regularly sends pictures of the children engaging in fun, educational play during the day such as messy play, arts and crafts – things I don’t have the time to do at home. My kids enjoy their meals at Sue’s and often ask me to ‘make it like Sue does’.
Sue is very accommodating and the children in her care are always her top priority. I honestly couldn’t recommend Sue’s House enough, as a single working mum, finding Sue has taken so much stress out of my life and provided me the opportunity to work knowing my children are safe, loved and cared for whilst in her care. It’s lovely to walk to her house in the evening and hear all the children laughing and playing together and they are always smiling from ear to ear when I pick them up.
My only regret about Sue’s House is that I didn’t find her sooner.
My son has been attending Sues house for the past 14 month and our family couldnt be happier, Sue has outstanding reviews and we now know why, she is an absolute gem. Always flexible with her times when we need Sue to have our little boy at such short notice, patience of a saint. He always comes home beaming from ear to ear he absolutely loves it at Sues house and has made some wonderfull friends there, he has come on leaps and bounds since he has been attending Sues setting and its lovely to see his progress and what he has been upto with pictures daily and the observations Sue, Hakeem and Beth do on him while hes there. She makes some of the best home cooked meals for all the children so we know he is always well fed. They go on outings daily and Ethan especially loves going to playgroup and doing the arts and crafts at Sues house and he always brings his pictures home to show us. Nothing is too much trouble for Sue and we are just so happy we found her after going to view multiple nurseries and childminders around us she really put our minds at rest when we had to go back to work knowing that our son was in a safe, fun and loving environment. Thanks Sue. Xx
Our only son started at Sue’s when he was 7 months old as I was required to return to work. It was a tough thing for myself and my husband, as we had to leave our son full time at childcare since we didn’t have extended family with us. For our solace, Sue had availability and flexibility we were looking for.
It took only a few days for Sue to make our son settled at her childcare. Our son was having re-occurring ear infections where he was required to be seen by the doctor and given antibiotics. It was not possible for me to take off from work every time he was sick. Sue was very empathetic on our situation and was willing to keep our son while he was on medication. She always put us at ease by reassuring us that our son had her full attention.
Sue is very flexible with times. I do a few late shifts per month and Sue was always flexible to keep him when I work late. Our son is really happy at Sue’s and he hardly even notice myself or husband, the moment we steps into Sue’s house. He plays, learns, and enjoys his time at Sue’s. His daily activities, food, naps, bottles etc are recorded in a diary with pictures taken time to time. Sue takes the children at her care to local play grops, and loads of creative activities are done at hers.
We couldn’t think of any better childminder for our son. Sue has all that qualities you’d ever expect in a childminder. She’s patient, loving, caring and hard working. We would definitely recommend her.
My little boy has been attending Sue’s House for about 9 months now.
It has taken him a while to become totally settled without us but Sue and her assistants have been so patient (even on the worst of days!) and helpful with the process- both with him and us!
I receive photos almost every week from Sue of my little boy out and about and updating me on anything that I would need to know. Communication has always been brilliant and very accommodating for our flexible work schedules.
Whenever I drop off/pick up all of tHe children are always happy and all doing different things! My little boy loves coming and I would recommend Sue’s House in a heartbeat.
