Amanda and her husband provide excellent care for our two children. I feel exceptionally lucky to have a childcare provider who ensures that my children feel safe and happy. They have a lot of fun and genuinely enjoy being there. Also Amanda feeds them delicious and nutritious meals which they love.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post. I really appreciate your comments. J would say "she makes me eat the cauliflower" he he he

I’ve known Amanda several years, she’s professional, caring and take great pride in the way she cares for all of the children. She’s fun to be around and is excellent in the way she engages and understands each child’s individual needs.

Amanda takes the children on numerous outings, she always keeps them occupied in a happy, educational and most importantly fun way. My son has really excelled by being at Amanda’s and we could not ask for better care. Amanda has always been very flexible and understanding and more importantly we know our son is happy, safe and well cared for. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.

Thank you Bex, that means a lot to me.

My DS is autistic with many unique and often mysterious characteristics. This childminder has shown a keeness to understand and support him and is very interested in how to engage him and learn his likes and dislikes and work around his tolerances to ensure he enjoys his time with her to the full. She is well equipped both in and outdoors and maintains good communication with me about outings etc. I feel well informed and my DS always has a good time.
