More than amazing

My 3 years old son was with Dorothy for 3 months while we stayed in London. It was more than amazing.
I struggled finding a place for such a short term, but luckily we got the best childminder.

Considering my son's shy character and not knowing much English, initially I was very worried. But on the day we met Dorothy and her team, all worries went away. She explained in detail how my son would spend time with her, and answered all my questions including very minor and silly ones. My son instantly loved the environment especially various toys and books.

Dorothy always mixed outdoor and indoor activities so the children never got bored. They went out for soft play, paddling pool and city farm visit, if the weather allowed. In the house, they did cooking, messy play, colouring, reading and played freely with toys. Her toy collection was amazing. She had almost every toy kids would love to have. She also focused educational aspects. My son learnt one alphabet each week and also a little bit of Spanish.
After 3 months, his English improved so much.

She was also good at reporting. Everyday I received photos of my son and his friends, so I could see how my son they play together. Weekly I received a journal focusing on developmental aspects.

I can not thank enough to Dorothy and her team. Having them as my son's childminder was one of the best things happened to us in London. They were very professional and always put children first. I highly recommend her!!
