My son has being going to Pam 5 days a week since September 2012 and he loves it! He is well looked after and has been welcomed, as have we, into Pam's lovely family. Being a first time parent Pam has been very supportive to us and understanding of the worry of leaving your baby! The settling in arrangements were excellent and I felt very comfortable in leaving my son. Pam plans lots of lovely things for the children she looks after and we are so pleased with all the things he has experienced and is learning. In our opinion Pam is a fab childminder!

Thankyou, this is very kind.
I enjoy looking after him and he is coming on in leaps and bounds. One clever little chappie!
Has made firm friends with my boy, and loves the attention the older children give - and one day he might just stop eating!! Love him.
