From day one I knew that I'd chosen the right setting for my son; definitely home from home.

My son started when he was 8 months old (he's now coming up to 4), he's always been very happy at Lisa's; taking part in a range of activities such as different playgroups, going to the park, visit to Dudley Zoo, soft play, creative play (painting, play dough etc), visits to the library/reading (to name but a few).

Support with his development has been super; from taking his first steps, his first words, potty training to starting pre-school, Lisa has always been 100% dedicated to ensuring my son is happy and supported, moving him forward as and when necessary but also allowing him time to develop at his own pace. I'm always kept fully informed about my sons day and have always been really impressed with his learning journal that I see on a regular basis containing detailed information regarding his development in relation to the Early Years Foundation Stages framework. Lisa had always welcomed comments and suggestions from me regarding my sons progress which has been important to me; a two way partnership was high on my agenda when looking for a setting for my son.

Lisa's home setting is always very homely and welcoming with a strong emphasis on family - in fact her whole family make my son and I feel very welcome. The environment is perfect for homely childcare with a purpose built area for young children leading out onto the garden and a new kitchen diner and bathroom facilities.

There has not been a single day where my son has not wanted to go or been upset to leave me. I'm so glad I went with my gut instinct and chose Lisa as my sons childminder.

I would thoroughly recommend Lisa to anyone wanting a home from home setting with a caring, loving environment.

As a single new mom I was very nervous about leaving my daughter with a childminder but when we both met Lisa everything changed. My daughter was 7 months at the time but really connected with Lisa straight away and this was the start of a great four year relationship. My daughter has blossomed with Lisa, having a variety of toys and activities to keep her stimulated, even going out on walks, going to soft-play, play-groups and to the library. Lisa provides a warm and friendly environment and I'm so sad that my little girl is moving on to school. Without Lisa I personally would not have finished my degree and she is very patient to individual circumstances tailor making activities for children so they grow and develop at their own pace. My daughter can write basic words ready for school and Lisa helped so much during potty training. It was a pleasure picking my daughter up from Lisa's greeted with lots of paintings and pictures my daughter has done that day. Lisa also provides detailed and accurate records of my daughter's process. Thank you so much for everything.

My son has been going to Lisa for the last 2 years since he was 10 months old and I could not be happier with the level of care Lisa provides. Her setting is amazing with a number of various toys indoors and outdoors. She carries out many different activities with the children aswell as taking them to playgroups, soft play and other trips out. We have lots of paintings, drawings and crafts sent home which is lovely. My son absolutely loves spending time with Lisa and the other children. Lisa always makes sure my son eats properly, has his nap and is happy and safe at all times. She is always very friendly, caring and kind. I could not recommend Lisa enough.
