Sally has been incredible with my little boy since he was 5 months old. From the very first time, he just settled in and I was never worried. Even when she temporarily had to change her schedule I have re-arranged my working hours and his nursery at a time to accommodate her, because it's important to have the person you trust around.
Oscar jumps out of the carrier every time we are by her door and is very happy there. What more to want?

Thank you,
Oscar is such a lively boy who is always eager to learn new things and has so much energy.

We are so happy that we found Sally! Their home has been such a warm, understanding and encouraging environment for him to start practicing his English and connecting with other children while getting to play, explore and learn.

Their home is truly a paradise for a child - and the garden is exceptionally fun and inspiring. I'd love to spend the day there too!

Our son Daniel absolutely loves going in every morning. We barely get a bye and a hug - he races in to spend the day with Sally and Michael and rarely looks back!

We really appreciate how thoughtful and caring Sally and Michael are when it comes to special diets and have been so considerate with our son's special requirements with food. We appreciate it so very much! He always tells us how much he enjoyed his lunch :)

We are very grateful for the superb care and love that our little angel gets when he spends the day at Sally's!

Thank you,
I still can't believe how fast he has picked up English,
he has thrived in all his learning.

My daughter has been with Sally and Michael since June 2019 and she absolutely adores them and their children!

They’re professional yet extremely warm and exceptionally pragmatic!
They’ve made returning to work a breeze and we’re blessed to have them! I can not recommend enough

Thank you Jess,
We are the lucky ones, there's not a day that goes by where she doesn't
make us all laugh. she is such a cutie.

Sally, Michael and their family have been looking after Ollie since October and we absolutely love them. He is now 18 months old.

We used to have a nanny as I worked at home and I was very apprehensive about him going somewhere else and him not being around home with me but my apprehensions were unfounded! Every morning we go to Sally's he runs it completely forgetting about me excited for the day ahead . The transition was so easy - there is simply so much to do and engage him at Sally's I think he barely notices I've gone.

The entire ground floor of their house has been converted into a child's paradise. The have a lovely indoor play area filled with toys and have added an extension with a jungle theme to the rear of their house. Just before Ollie joined they had even built their own softplay in an outhouse in their garden - this is his absolute favourite and Sally sends me lots of photos of him playing in here with big smiles. At the back of the garden they have a large covered area with a lots to do - wheeled toy, Wendy houses, sand pits, themed areas to learn about dinosaurs, creepy crawlies and all sorts and so much more.

Since Ollie has been going to Sally's he has transitioned to 1 nap. At home we sometimes struggle to get him to have a decent 2 hour nap but he consistently sleeps for 2 hours or more whilst with Sally. The sleeping arrangement is really good they have travel cots set up in various rooms - the better sleepers share rooms but there are some separate rooms for the not so good sleeper so they don't disturb or are disturbed by others - Ollie recently graduated into the better sleepers room, something I never thought possible!

They make lovely home cooked meals and set up the high chairs in a circle whilst they go round in the middle helping the children where they need it. They really encourage self feeding which I think is wonderful - Ollie's has come along leaps and bounds since he has been going to Sally's.

It is a wonderful fun environment for the children but they also learn a lot and are taught how to play nicely with each other and use "gentle hands".

Every day I have a good chat with Sally and she tells me all about Ollie's day so I know exactly what he's been up to. So glad we found Sally & her family, we wish we could go and play there all day too!

Thank you so much Vicky,
We love having Ollie here with us, he's doing so well
making new friends and learning so much every day.

We are so happy we found you and so sad we had to leave :/ My daughter loved Sally, Michael and girls from day one. As soon as you enter Sally's house you don't want to leave. It's just kids paradise. When I walked in, I knew I should not look any further.

Sally has huge variety of toys and activities. Everything is thought through, up to little details.

You were so lovely to my daughter and we can not thank you enough x
