My Experience

I have moved into the world of childcare as a second career. I am a naturally caring and nurturing person and I love being with the children, watching them learn and progress and having fun in their company! My most valuable childcare experience has come from bringing up my own children. As well as completing child-minding induction training, I have basic training in Counselling. I also have my Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People's Workforce (Early Years Educator) and Autism Awareness Diploma.

My daughter started going to Vicky’s once a week as her usual childminder couldn’t accommodate all my working hours. I was worried my daughter would struggle to settle but right from the start she has loved going to Vicky’s. Vicky invests greatly in each individual child in her care. The activities chosen are tailored for the children and have enabled my daughter to develop her numeracy and literacy skills. My daughter will be very sad to leave Vicky as she starts school.

Vicky has been looking after both of my children for 6 years now. She was the first childminder we’ve seen and we knew from the start she was the one for us.
Both of my kids absolutely adore Vicky and they love coming to her setting. My eldest is 7 and in year 3 at school but he’d still choose Vicky over any holiday club for school holidays.
Vicky is caring, engaging and she is genuinely interested in children’s development, she’d explore their interests, she provides lots of different activities in and outside of the setting and she provides just the right amount of contact with other children by meeting other childminders and taking children to playgroups and play parks etc.
Vicky has a lovely garden where children can play and grow various plants and flowers. There are lots of toys to choose from inside and they get updated frequently to include whatever is popular at the time, which the kids love.
We’d absolutely recommend Vicky to anyone. It’s not just a place where they spend their day but she provides a real home from home and she cares for the children very well, which is what every parent want when they’re at work, to know that their children are well looked after and happy.

Vicky has had my son for several years whilst he was very young until he starts school (next week). He has always been so happy at Vicky's and her setting and family are considered a second home to my son.

Vicky has really clear boundaries and the children respond well to her, she communicates really well with both the children and us parents and is always thinking of little things that will help in any situation. I would recommend Trelawn childcare to any family without hesitation.

Vicky also represents good value for money since she does lots of activities and outings with the children that are relevant to their developmental stage. My son always comes home worn out and happy with his achievements, anything from the seasonal artwork, the plants he has grown, the creative play he has done and the food he has been provided. Absolutely lovely family and setting and also lovely that Vicky always makes an effort to remember what my other children are interested in to ask them when we pick up the little one.

Vicky looks after my 2 yr old son during the day and my 6 yr old daughter after school. Vicky has looked after them since October 2012. Vicky provides a fun, caring and nurturing environment for my children and they get involved with lots of activities when they are there. Both of my children enjoy their time with Vicky and look forward to their next visits.
