About Me

Love 2 Grow childcare Services was set up by two extensively experienced childcare practitioners whom are also parents themselves. As co-minders with a wealth of experience in day nurseries we knew we could combine the very best elements of both a structured day nursery and a warm and supportive environment of a childminder, providing consistency for children and strong emotional attachments that support them in reaching their own potential.

Becoming frustrated by the world of private day nurseries and the problems that run through the industry we simply wanted to do better!

**UPDATE**
Relocation in July 2021 to Clacton-on-Sea. I am now located in a large detached house, with large garden and a dedicated playroom.

Drop off and collection available at Whitehall Academy.

Love 2 Grow are amazing. I left my 9 month old little girl with them when I returned to work and then my son also joined their setting. Always great with feedback and advice - and most importantly lots of cuddles and laughter with the little ones. A really happy, clean and safe setting. I now see Love 2 Grow as an extension to our family. My kids absolutely adore Love 2 Grow and so do we!

Our girls were with Keely at Love 2 gro for just under 3 years and both absolutely flourished with her. There were never any tears at drop off because they always had so much fun!!

Keely is just incredible with children and as a parent, I never once felt anxious about leaving them in her care. Love 2 gro became the girls second family and we were so sad when they left Hornchurch! Our loss is Clacton gain.

I felt like we struck gold when we found Keely. She has been such an amazing, positive influence in my sons life. I truly believe that I have Keely to thank for his development soaring in the past 18 months. Such a brilliant teacher.

My son said little to few words when he started attending Love2gro, and I could hear the improvement in speech in just a few weeks.

More like family than childcare x

Thank you for being you Keely!
We miss you terribly, and wish you all the best in your new home.

Love from Amanda & Frankie xxx

I am very proud of Frankie and his amazing progress in his readiness for school. Seeing him in his shirt and tie was a very emotional moment for me! His love for school, his warm friendly and enthusiastic personality will see him well for the next leg of his journey.

Thank you for trusting me with him. Xxxx

Keely was great with my little boy who started at 1yrs old.
I always felt comfortable leaving him and my little boy loved his time there. Keely Also gave me lots of advice when I needed it too so a massive help.
I would highly recommend Keely and had she not had to relocate would still be using her services.

Oh! We miss you too! The boys talk about A so often! Xxxx

Thank you Laura x

We have used Keely as a childminder for over 2years. My son started when he was just 11 months old. I always felt comfortable leaving him with her and she has done a fantastic job of looking after him over the years. He still talks about her now! It’s such a shame she has relocated or we would have continued to use her services for the next decade I am sure. But what was my loss is definitely someone else’s gain and I wish her all the best for the future in Clacton. If you’re looking for a fantastic childminder, you’ll find it with her. We miss you Keely! X

These are quite literally making me tear up! Thank you Kelly. So glad you placed your trust in us and thankful for the time we got to spend with Jack. So sad that his little sister wasn't able to follow in his footsteps and come along too.
