Thank you so much. I have really enjoyed looking after Logan.
It's been a pleasure.
Carrie is a fantatsic Childminder. She took my daughter, Emily (8), on at the last minute with no hesitation and was very warm and welcoming towards us.
Emily was very unsure about going to a new childminder but Carrie put her at ease and helped all of us adjust to the new routine.
Emily throroughly enjoys interacting with the other children and very much enjoys the activities and games. Carrie's home is lovely and there's always something to do.
I can't thank Carrie enough for all her help.

Any time you need me just call.
We found Carrie through this website, and Lily has come on leaps and bounds.
She is so much more confident and outgoing, and always loved going to Carries. She was very happy there and it is such a shame that she will no longer be going.
It was a great relief to know that she enjoyed her time with Carrie, and i knew that i didnt have any worries.
It is a lovely place for children to play, and there is plenty to do...Lily didnt want to come home one day!
Thank you Carrie for everything you have done, we will miss you lots! xx
