Shelley looked after my little boy for nearly two years. My little boy has quite complex needs and is globally delayed, however Shelley gave extra help and support to my little boy. She addressed everything with me and supported us as a family. She is professional, loving and caring and the most beautiful person you could ask to meet. If you want peace of mind that your children will be looked after as well as they are by their own parents, Shelley is the woman for you. Can not sing her praises high enough. I moved 200 miles away which is the only reason my little boy doesn't go to Shelley anymore but if I could have brought her with me I would of.

Shelley has looked after my little girl for 3 years and has done a fantastic job. They do a variety of activities throughout the week and my daughter loves going there. The bond between them is obvious to see, she is like an extended part of the family and will bend over backwards to help people.
When my daughter starts school in September we will be sending our son to join the fun.

Shelley has looked after our 2 boys. We always felt that she was an extended part of our family and took great care of the children. The boys were given a great variety of activities and Shelley works hard to provide a caring stimulating environment. Shelley understands how hard it is for a parent to leave their little one with a childminder and helps both the child and the parents in the settling in process.
Both our boys have been so well cared for by Shelley, we will miss her a lot.

Shellley and I struck up a friendship bc we were in similar social situations, family/moving wise. I sincerley hope, even though we haven't actually met yet, that she does a space for my baby bc I have every confidence in leaving her with Shelley and think she would be a lovely childminder x
