Heike is one of life’s wonderful people. Our daughter started with her at 14 months old and simply flourished in her care.
Heike takes the children to groups, activities, events and trips - just as you would want your child to visit. She is caring, has a lovely nurturing nature and knows our daughter inside out.
I don’t think we would ever find a better childminder, she is just amazing.
Her home facilities for childminding are outstanding, with a special outdoor classroom and huge garden all maintained with excellent facilities. Our daughter never wants to come home!! Such a good sign.
We could not recommend Heike more, she has become a huge part of our life.

My daughter has been going to Heike every Monday for this academic year and has really enjoyed it and grown significantly in confidence during her time there. Heike is very caring, personable and makes sure all the children in her care feel really comfortable. She constantly plays games such as peek a boo to make them smile! They always go out in the mornings; to the zoo, to the wild place; to a park; to a local baby group and sometimes for the whole day, which is wonderful. Her setting is also beautiful with a lovely large area for the children to play as well as a large garden. Heike generally has 2-4 children on any given day so all the children get plenty of individual attention, which is another advantage. I would highly recommend her as a childminder.

Hi Sarah, thank you very much for your Kind and lovely words ,we will miss you a lot

Our son Gabriele attended Heike for 3 years. He had always great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care. Heike provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise and crafts of any kind. She offers a positive and happy environment helping children to develop independence, confidence and good discipline.
We were satisfied with the level of care Gabriele received and we would absolutely recommend Heike as a great and reliable childminder.

Thank you very much , I am glad that I could help you in this time

Heike Bath cares so much for each child in her care and I cannot recommend her enough. She cares for my son Jenson and he just loves being in her care. When I went back to work it was really hard on me but Heike made the transition so smooth.

She has an amazing set up at her home for Childminding - MUST SEE.
She takes the children out and about and gives them adventures.
She is flexible and even meets me at a location for pick up and drop off in BRADLEY STOKE where I live to accommodate us!

She is AMAZING. She goes above and beyond for the children in her care.
