review of Shelford - Childminder in Great Shelford
My 2 boys both attend Joanna's childcare - the oldest actually just started school today after 3.5 years with Joanna, and the youngest has been attending Joanna since he was 5 months old (now 1.5). They LOVE going there. My son used to ask whether he could also go on weekends and was really disappointed every time I told him no Joanna isn't open at the weekends.
I can't praise her and her staff enough. They are genuinely caring, provide a safe and friendly setting with loads of activities and trips, give regular reports and updates to me on their progress. Every activity is both fun, but also educational and teaches the kids a new skill or practices something they were already taught. The snacks and meals are homecooked and healthy (and I'm quite jealous I can't stay for lunch actually!)
I've seen my boys flourish under Joanna's daily supervision - I would highly recommend her to other parents looking for a top quality childminder.
