Our daughter (20 months) has been at Huggie Bears for 6 months and it is a wonderful place for little ones. The only reason we are taking her out is because we are moving abroad. She has really flourished while there and I am sad to be taking her out! I feel that she has learned a great deal, she has been really well taken care of, she has done lots of activities pertinent to her age and has been cared for in a warm and loving environment. The actual setting is fantastic, with lots of spaces for learning, reading and an outdoor area for summer activities. The childminder takes amazing care of the kids - my daughter always came home well fed, clean and very happy! We even got little drawings and cards from her for different holidays. The communication between parents and childminder is excellent - so you know what they have done during the day, eaten and anything that is going on with them. I would highly recommend Huggie Bears to anyone and I would certainly put her back in if I had the chance.

Our 18 month old son has attended Huggie Bears for the last 8 months and we couldn't be happier with his progress in this time.

Geraldine's professionalism is matched by her enthusiasm for the personal development of our son, providing regular, comprehensive feedback on his progress.

Geraldine plans many developmental activities in the setting with visits to local playgroups and trips to the local parks however what is most encouraging for my wife and I, is seeing how happy our son is every morning on drop off and evening on collection from the setting.

I can highly recommend Geraldine and Huggie Bears.

Our 3 year old girl has been with Huggie Bears Family Childcare for over a year now and we think it is exceptional. Our little girl loves her days with Geraldine and has progressed considerably since she joined. The amount of support is over and above what is expected. We were even supported along the process of exploring if our daughter had delayed speech development. She has come on leaps and bounds and we are convinced that there isn't a better place for her to develop her social and life skills than at Huggie Bears. Safety standards and overall professionalism are relentless and we couldn't be happier.

We highly recommend Huggie Bears Family Childcare. We trusted our 1-year old son to the care of Geraldine for 3 days a week, and were extremely impressed with the happy, nurturing and safe environment she provided.
The activities on offer really helped with our son’s development, and we saw huge progress within a very short space of time in terms of his speech, memory recognition and confidence. We are especially pleased with the bond between our son and Geraldine, which can only be a result of the quality time she has spent with him. To add to this, daily reports about nutritional meals, activities undertaken and nap times have been a great help.

Geraldine is a highly competent childminder.
She takes good care of every single aspect of a kid's daily needs.
She knows how to teach them the appropriate behaviour, how to express themselves and how to be independent.
The food she provides is all fresh and of high quality.
The entire environment is clean and very hygienic.
She gave me loads of good advice anytime I asked for it.
I surely recommend her, my daughter was happy there.

In November 2014, we trusted our son to the care of Huggie Bears Family Childcare. We have never regretted or felt disappointed with such decision.

Huggie Bears childminder spend quality time and have done an incredibly professional job in developing our little one's skills.

On top of all her dedication to our son, and to all other babies and toddlers under her care, she has always been available to give us, and other parents, advice and feedback based on her experience and knowledge. We appreciate the way she does it and the methodologies she uses for that effect.

Moreover, Huggie Bears offers all the required facilities to give children a safe environment whilst keeping a comfortable environment for them to feel like at home.

We were looking for a childminder for our 10 months old daughter. We wanted someone who could provide a safe environment, was passionate, caring and committed. When we met Geraldine at Huggie Bears we felt she ticked all boxes. Now, 7 months later, we know we took the right decision and are very happy with the dedication and care our daughter gets.

Geraldine is very thorough, professional and has a great eye for detail: we get a daily diary that tells us how the day's been and are punctually informed of anything that's significant.

We have got no hesitation and highly recommend Huggie Bears!

We have been very happy with the afterschool care our daughter received at Huggie Bears. She was picked up from school every day, had a wholesome meal at the Huggie Bears setting, did her homework and took part in a lot of activities (arts and crafts, baking etc).
Geraldine is very professional and I felt 100% confident leaving my daughter in her care.
I always recommend Huggie Bears to all my friends.

We have been taking our daughter to Huggie Bears from 9 months of age. We looked around for a service with which we would feel comfortable leaving such a young baby and since we both work full time wanted an environment that would be at least as good if not better than our own home. In our minds Huggie Bears was the only option and we have not been disappointed one bit. Geraldine has been wonderful since day one not only in caring for our daughter but also in providing excellent learning experiences. We have tried where possible to use the most sustainable options for baby products and Huggies have always been accommodating and happy to work with us. The home cooked healthy meals were another important factor in choosing Huggies and we are sure that our daughter has been eating a better diet than us since she moved properly onto solids! The daily reports detailing foods eaten, activities undertaken and naps are fantastic! Overall we recommend Huggie Bears Family Childcare as highly as possible to all parents in the locale.

We are very happy with Huggie Bears Childcare. Our son has been going there for 8 months now and is always happy at the end of the day. It's great to know that it's not just a place where he is well looked after but the care is taken over children's development and progress as well. It's always nice to get the full report of what he's been up to each day and see how many different activities he's doing and new things he's learning. Would highly recommend.
