We have been with annette and Eddie since April 2021 and have found them to be a caring, flexible and experienced childcare service.
Our son teddie has thoroughly enjoyed his time there and visibly is happy and always smiling to see them. Annette and Eddie are responsive and engaging and provide a stimulating and varied setting and activities for children there. Teddie has a dairy allergy and annette has always provided information on any developments and ensured he is given meals that are tailored to his needs.
They are good communicators and always advise of any issues and help provide solutions and are flexible when parents have the occasional issue at home. They provided regular updates via the app and photos on a daily basis so you can really see what the children are up to. They treat them to many trips out and give each child equal and important care and time.
If anyone is needing childcare we cannot recommend annette and Eddie highly enough. They treat the the children as their own and really do support and look after them and help them develop. We are moving away from the area which is the only reason why we are changing providers otherwise we would be staying with them for a long time. Tracy and james

Awwwwww thank you so much no words can describe when we realised you were moving. Every day after that was a count down to the day you were leaving. Now you have left and we will miss you and your son. Thank you for allowing us to be apart of your child's life. We miss..... you so much. Best wishes all the best with the move. Annette and Edward
We have been trying to find childcare for our 10 month old for around 6 months, and we had honestly been struggling day to day to keep a work/life balance. We luckily came across Annette and Eddie’s profile and since then it’s like a weight has been lifted. From our first interaction to our little ones first day, everything has been perfect and so reassuring. We cannot thank Annette enough for really taking the time to explain who she is, the ethos of her childcare and really listening to us and our needs. We found that the lead up to our little ones first day was so informative, with detailed information provided, and Annette ensured that all necessary paperwork was completed. When his first day came around of course there was slight apprehension, he is a lockdown baby so has only ever been looked after by us. However, the minute we arrived and he saw Annette, he had the biggest smile on his face….not even a single tear or glance back! We received regular updates throughout the day, keeping us at ease. Once home, we then received a detailed diary of his food, activities and sleep whilst he was in Annette and Eddie’s care. We can’t thank you enough and look forward to developing a relationship with you as our little one grows.

I could not have asked for a better person to take care of my children, with being a single parent of four , Annette has brought structure into our home, everything you look for in a child minder she has , she's patient , caring and has the best interest of each child at heart. She has helped us more then you could imagine , if you need that help or guidance with your child she is the best person to have, I promise you, you will not regret it and you will see your child blossom in all areas, meet her and see for yourself , I have not met someone with a bigger heart then hers. ❤️

Thank you so much I really enjoyed meeting and supporting you and your gorgeous family/ Babysitting at the weekend. Where I get that opportunity to bring into your home that support more happiness and Joy. Best wishes and thank you for lovely kind review
Annette and Eddie have been looking after our little girl for 18 months now and I cannot express how happy we are that we found them. We appreciate the time and effort lillies has put into her individual growth. All through the onboarding process, to understanding family needs and amazing communication, I cannot say enough about how warm and professional they are! They have created such a fun and warm environment for our little one to flourish and have really put our minds at ease. She had gone through potty training, learning her letters and numbers here and also working on all social aspects of interacting with her peers. We are so pleased with her progress. I would recommend Lillies 10 times over.
We are sad to say that our little girl will be leaving this setting due to a house move but I know the next little one to take this spot with be happy and well nurtured in this setting.
Thank you Annette and Eddie for the special work you do. x

Thank you so much for your review. When we look back at your daughter's pictures that we sent to you throughout the time she has been with us. We see a massive growth in development. We are very proud of her. You are a lovely family. Which we will never forget. Wishing you all the best in your new home. If you are ever in our area again pop over. Keep safe. Happy memories!
Annette and Eddie are brilliant childminders, they cater to our son's needs and for every individual child. He is well looked after by them. It is comforting to know when we commute to London that they communicate well with us, if there are any problems we have a WhatsApp chat which they send regular pictures and updates on. the food and activity charts online are updated daily so we are aware what our child has been doing and they are always doing different things and helping children develop through inquisitive play or trips out. Punctual, clean and tidy our son is learning good habits from them like brushing his hair! Would highly recommend as a setting. from Tracy and James

Dear Tracy thank you for such a lovely review.. your son is Amazing we enjoy looking after him. You are a lovely family..on your son's arrival he got stuck in he is so happy and a pleasure to look after.
Our little one is with Annette for more than a month now. She has been really great in settling, especially in our case where the my 2 yr old was at home most of the times due to locked down. Now she is eager to see Annette always. She was really great in initial rapport creation with the child via zoom, walk-in and more support. Nice to see little one picking up more words and new good habits. Annette has always been informative especially on Childs needs. Annette and Eddie are very flexible especially for parents like us who are both into full time work. We have a great list of activities planned in days to come and i am sure Annette would nurture my daughter beyond our expectations. Happy Parents :) :)

Dear Vasudeva Viji and your beautiful daughter. When I first met with you; you were so welcoming.As soon as we met your daughter she gave me a big smile and I knew she was going to be great in our setting.
Your daughter is a credit to you. you are a very lovely family and I promised you that I will work hard and do my best. We are really working in partnership great exchanges. Thank you so much for your lovely review. Looking forward to seeing your daughter in setting soon. Thanks Again!
A quick update on my previous review. It’s been almost 4 months (plus the lockdown break) since my son started his adventure at Lillies of the Valley. He started with crying and clinging to mummy and now he is literally waiting by the door to be picked up, no more tears, no more clinging, and even no good bye to mummy. Each time he comes back home he is happy and relaxed. There is no doubt he is well looked after and clearly enjoys himself. Variety of activities Annette comes up with keep my son not only busy but most importantly allow him to experience and learn new skills, he is becoming more and more independent. Thank you Annette & Eddie, you are highly recommended!

This is so lovely to read your experiences with us. We so enjoy looking after your son who is certianly a bundle of Joy; He has also woken up from sleeps to see balloons and his banners and smiled so much( Happy Birthday) I think he is very excited. Thanks again for your positive review.
Annette and Eddie have been looking after our 2 year old girl for 3 months now and I cannot express how happy we are that we found them. All through the onboarding process to now they have been warm and professional. They really understand a family's needs and have thought of everything from pick ups, food and communication on the little's progress. The have a created such a fun and warm environment for our little one to flourish and have really put our minds at ease. We see progress on our daughters speech, manners and attentiveness and we are delighted. Thank you Annette and Eddie and keep up the great work.

A big thank you to Annette for arranging the initial meetings and start date so quickly. I was sold immediately to Annette's warm and open personality combined with professionalism and clear passion for her work. It was a huge relief to see my little one being so calm and relaxed in a new place within minutes. The next meeting at our place went even better, my son didn’t even notice I was gone while playing with Annette.
Yesterday my son completed his first day with Annette and Eddie. His "leaving" tears were soon gone and the photos Annette sent clearly indicated he was having the time of his life. It’s still early days, but it looks like he is settling in well and enjoys himself. Regular updates and photos are very reassuring (especially on the first day), and give me confidence he is well looked after. And of top on all this there is the pick up/ drop off service, one couldn’t have asked for more!

This is such a beautiful review we really enjoy having your son he a bright Gorgeous little boy that has really got involved in play very sociable. Meeting the family was really nice in our face to face meeting and visting them in their home allows me to see them in their setting to familiarise myself with your son and family. I am so proud of him well done to a great start.
Our little one has been with Annette for 6 weeks and we really have seen some great changes! She started very shy and unsettled and had not much exposed to English; but Annette has been encouraging her a lot and very caring, lots of cuddle, lots of love. We really see DD learning new things every time she comes back home and she's very well with the family there.
