Brenda has been childminding my son for 3 and a half years, since Dominik was 13 months old.
Brenda used to look after him full days before he went to nursery, nowadays she looks after Dominik in the morning, providing him with breakfast and then taking him to school. She picks him up before 12 o’clock and take care of him until 5 o’clock.
Brenda is one in a million..Dominik adores her. When Brenda has my little boy his days are always packed with fun days out and always something different. When the weather is not suitable to stay out, she always provide fantastic indoor learning activities, that stimulate kids imagination.
When she has him she treats my son as a family.
He is really well looked after and I love the fact I can go to work with not a worry..
Above all the daily tasks, she also went above and beyond providing great help to improve Dominik’s english level as we were not using english at home.
She also provides major help when emergency shifts are required at work and she’s always been keen to help me.
I can surely rely on her help, just like if she was a member of a family.
I would strongly recommend Brenda to any parent.

Brenda has been minding our son Dominic (little bit over 2 year old) since we moved down South in May 2016. At all times Brenda has been professional, kind, considerate, flexible and helpful. She looked after Dominic from 8a.m. – 6p.m. 5 days a week.
From the moment he started, Brenda made sure we were all comfortable with the arrangements and provided a good settling in period for my son to adjust to being away from home.
Dominic thoroughly enjoyed his time with Brenda; this was clearly evident in his behavior toward her. He had access to an extensive variety of toys and took part in a wide range of activities such as arts and crafts, zoo visits, attending toddler groups and more. 
Brenda completes a diary detailing what Dominic has done each day. From this we have a complete picture of his whole day including what he has eaten, how long he has slept and all his activities. This helps us to feel involved with his care and that we can talk to him about his day.
A bonus is receiving texts from Brenda during the day letting us know if Dominic settled down and receiving pictures. We are very sad to have to say good bye to Brenda, because we can see how much Dominic learn in this short period of time. 
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone looking for a stimulating and healthy environment for their children’s care and would most certainly use her again. It is safe to say she surpassed all of our expectations.
