Our son has been with Andie from 7 months and he's been loving it. We never had one tear at drop-off, he is always happy to see her in the morning and goes to her easily. Even after a few weeks off around Christmas I was worried he would need some time to settle back in but it went like a charm.

Andie has been nothing but amazing with him. It feels like he is part of the family. When it was possible (before restrictions due to covid) she would take him to lots of different soft plays, walks etc... Andie is very reliable, flexible, she's amazing with children all ages (she also looked a few times after our 5 year old who keeps asking to go back to her). I am very confident in her ability to help my son be stimulated and learn lots of new things. He is also spoiled with cuddles.

I would very strongly recommend Andie to anyone.

Andie has cared for my two children over the ages of 1-3 separately and together. They love her like family and I would say she loves them like family as well. She is flexible, reliable and trustworthy with your most precious possessions. My kids have been exposed to so many great experience with Andie taking them out most days which has improved their confidence as well as climbing abilities (softplays)! If I could cope with having another child they would certainly be lined up to goto Andie.

To Prospective Parents.
My daughter was with Andi from 12-14 months. Although we never got over tears at drop-off, my daughter was always happy and content when I picked her up. She slept and ate well, and Andi kept me updated with photos during the day. Different toys were laid out, art work was created and trips out to the park/softplay/farm/beach were a daily occurrence, All in all, Andi made going back to work so much easier and I would recommend her to everyone. Daily logistics mean we have had to leave Andi, otherwise my daughter would still be with her.

I highly recommend Andie as a great loving caring childminder with 30 year of experience.
I know Andie by recommendation from our previous childminder. Andie started looking after my daughter when she was 13 months old for one year. We bought the house and had to move out from the area. I found new childminder unfortunately we had a very bad experience. My daughter become distress and scared I cancelled the contract immediately. First thing came to my mind to contact Andie. We live faraway but still we decided to ask Andie if she have free space. We were lucky Andie took my daughter straightway in to her care. My child quickly received love care started smiling and feeling confident again. I’m so happy to have Andie, she is live saver for me. Anna J

Andie has been looking after our daughter (17 months old) for the last 4 months. Having spent nearly every minute with my daughter since she was born I was dreading leaving her with someone else, but Andie made me feel instantly comfortable, she clearly cares for my daughter and will sit and cuddle her all day if that's what she needs. She takes her on outings and is always thinking of inventive games and activities for them to do - and sends you pictures through out the day to keep you in the loop. Her house is a happy, welcoming place to be and we all love being there!
