As soon as we press the door bell our little boys face lights up, when the door opens he holds his arms out for cuddles showing how comfortable and happy he is to stay with Donna and Warren, for Osian their house is his home from home.

Having started with them when he was just 5 months old, both Donna and Warren have played a large part in his development, under their care he's gone from a tiny baby to a crawling, babbling, confident 8 month old with definite ideas about his own wants and needs!

As first time parents with no family near by Donna and Warren have also been invaluable in helping and advising the two of us. With both of us currently serving in the military, flexible childcare is essential, Donna and Warren have been more than understanding and accommodating of our schedules.

The Baby Day's app is a definite bonus, we love getting frequent updates, photos and videos throughout the day.

We have no hesitation in recommending Donna and Warren, our son adores them (and Floyd is a hit with him too!)

Our two boys have been with Donna and Warren for almost two years now and it has indeed been a home away from Home for them. We have watch our sons grow and thrive under their care. They always keep us up to date with their progress.

My husband and I both work full time as doctors and the value of finding good and flexible childcare is invaluable and that is exactly what we have found at Pansypotters.

Donna and Warren are very lovely people and we have come to regard them as friends. They treat the boys like one of their own and our sons are very comfortable with them as well. They are always professional. The setting is clean and well maintained and the care provided is impeccable.

They have been very accomodating and show understanding regarding our busy work schedules, always going the extra mile. Our first son is starting reception soon but we are definitely staying on with Pansypotters for after school care.

Donna & Warren have done a fantastic job of looking after our little girl Lyla for the last 2 years. They’ve really helped her development and her confidence has come on so much & I couldn’t be any more grateful. Lyla is always excited to go and it’s very much a home from home for her. They are also very accommodating with hers and our needs. She is always full of stories when we pick her up so we know she’s been well looked after and had a great day when she’s been with Donna & Warren. We’d highly recommend pansy potters!

Donna and Warren are very lovely, kind and understanding people. They were very patient with us as we just moved into the area and accommodated our needs. I wish we lived in the area so we could drop off Sofia whenever we could. But it is not possible at the moment due to travelling distance. hopefully, in the future, if our circumstances change, we can come back to you and settle Sofia. Thank you again for being so kind and understanding.

I couldn’t be more pleased with my daughters development over the past eight months. She started with Donna and Warren when she was three months old and has received excellent treatment, like one of the family. Not only her though, but her father and I too. Being new parents, sometimes we need a little guidance and we’ve received so much support from them over this period. They are such a lovely couple, always wanting to help others.

Donna and Warren always exceed expectation, they do more than is necessary for my daughters development and do everything they can to make her feel at home.

I absolutely love that they send me photos and videos of her throughout the day. I can see when she’s painting, playing, drawing. They even record what she’s eaten, how long she’s slept and how many nappies she’s had changed!

Upon first arrival in September 17, I was impressed to learn that they had a “Ring” system, which allows them to see who’s at the door before answering. Both her father and I felt comfortable almost immediately, there’s no one I trust more to take care of my gorgeous baby. She is always looked after in such a thorough manner, always comes back to us clean and happy.
