Silvy cared for our 7 months old daughter Victoria during the summer months this year on a full time basis and we have only stopped due to a change in our own circumstances. From the start Silvy has always demonstrated the most professional and caring attitude - we could not have asked for more.
On our first meeting Silvy was very clear and straightforward about her terms and attitude to children; an approach based on kindness and politeness, which Silvy consistently demonstrated and which led to our daughter blossoming and developing a very strong bond with her. Victoria visibly brightened and would be beaming every morning when she arrived at Silvy's door.
On occasion we had to change our plans and Silvy was understanding and flexible.
Silvy provides a clean and safe environment for the children and seems to broker a positive, caring relationship between them. She is very knowledgeable (not surprising based on her experience) and shared many useful thoughts about Victoria's health and development, but always openly and without ever being pushy.
We plan to continue to use Silvy as a babysitter and, if our circumstances change, as a childminder again.
My son has been with Silvy for nearly 11 months (age 12 months to 23 months), and we (and he!) have been so happy. We are only stopping the care because I will be on maternity leave soon, so I will be able to stay with him at home.
Silvy is very vigilant about anything safety or safeguarding related. I knew my son was always safe in her hands. She also has high standards for cleanliness and hygiene, but just as important to us was her high standard for good manners, politeness, and kindness. Our son was saying "thank you" and "please" before he was saying "yes" or "no"! And of course, most importantly, we are so grateful for the love and affection she has given him. They have a very special bond. He runs to her every morning and leaps into her arms. It is so comforting to know that he is secure and happy and being given heaps of cuddles and kisses just like he would at home. One of the reasons we chose a childminder over nursery for him at this young age is because we wanted him in a home environment with intimate care by one person, and Silvy has definitely provided a home away from home for him, just as she says in her description. We will be forever grateful to Silvy for all she has done for our baby boy!
We have so appreciated Silvy's kindness towards our son and our family. She has provided excellent care for our little boy and has established a close, affectionate bond with him. She has consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty and we will all miss her.
Silvy has looked after our son, James (5) for just over a year. We needed a flexible, reliable childcarer that we could depend on to collect James from school and look after him until we got home from work.
Silvy has impressed me from the start with her dedication and professionalism. She has maintained the same approach throughout and I am pleased to say that I have found her very straighforward to deal with.
Silvy has, on several occasions, acted as emergency contact when James has been ill and neither my husband or I could get to the school quickly enough. She is the sort of person you can really rely on. She has also been flexible on many occasions when we were running late or stuck in traffic.
I would recommend Silvy to working parents that need someone who is experienced, reliable, professional, straightforward, and flexible.
Originally we had banked on a nursery place for our child. However due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to look again. We wouldn't have thought have a childminder, but since finding Silvy, we can't believe that we didn't contemplate using one before. Having said this, we do appreciate that Silvy is in a bracket of childminders unlike others we have seen.
Our child was 11 months when we started her with Silvy. From the first moment we were appreciative of Silvy's vast experience, interaction with our little one (who originally wouldn't go to anyone from us) and the cleanliness of her childcare environment.
Five months on, our little one has shown signs of development from her time with Silvy and interaction with other children. She has developed her social interactions and development.
We would definitely recommend Silvy and would definitely make the choice again ourselves!
