My little boy has been going to Michelle for 19 months now. He started there aged 15 months, after a very unsettled start at a local nursery. We immediately felt at ease with Michelle, and decided that she would be the best person to look after our little boy. Taking him out of the nursery and entrusting him with Michelle was the best decision we could have made! Michelle and her family live in a clean and tidy house, with a dedicated playroom, downstairs toilet facilities and a huge garden equipped with slide, climbing frame, playhouse, a rabbit and chickens! Michelle and the children rarely have a day when they don't leave the house...she takes them to various toddler groups, the library, to the shops, to cafes and to hundreds of different playgrounds and country parks. Michelle prepares freshly made meals which I am told my little boy loves (he often has at least two helpings!)
We have noticed such a difference in our little boy since he has been with Michelle...it has been lovely to see him develop into a confident, chatty and independent little man. Michelle is also always looking for ways to continually improve her practice by attending evening and weekend courses related to child development.
If anyone is looking for a childminder I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle. I am happy to provide a reference, or speak personally to anyone who may be considering Michelle as a childminder...you won't be disappointed!
I was really pleased when Michelle looked after my daughter, i wanted somebody that i felt she was safe with, had the same approach to looking after my child as i did , somewhere that my daughter would be played with and taken out doing different activities and given healthy food, i found all this at michelles, the house is clean safe environment for the kids and you can tell by michelles own children how polite and well behaved they are and how happy, that environment is what your own child will be around therefore felt at ease leaving my child with michelle. I also found michelle to be very thorough and professional taking pride in her job and making sure all her standards are to the highest so what more could you want for your child :)
My son has been going to michelle since he was 6 months old and he absolutely loves going. He has learnt so many things being with michelle and really enjoys all the groups she takes him to. If you are looking for a childminder who keeps your child entertained with different groups and activities then look no further because michelle does it all! I would highly recommend michelle
