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!

Andie has been looking after our 17 month old son for 5 months now and we couldn't be happier with the service she is providing. Not only is Andie warm, welcoming and clearly very experienced, she is constantly thinking of new things for the kids to do and providing new toys for them to play with, even taking the time to create homemade things for them during her time off. I have 100% confidence is her ability and feel totally at ease when I drop my son off with her. Her 3 sons are also great with the kids and really make you feel part of their extended family. After the stresses associated with going back to work and finding the right childcare, I am so relieved to have found Andie and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Andi is a real find! Our little boy (age 2) is currently looked after by her and absolutely loves his time with her, and the friends he has made while in her care. With three boys of her own and many years experience under her belt I immediately felt comfortable leaving my precious little one with her. She is warm and caring and always has lots of wonderful activities planned to keep him occupied - from trips to the zoo, to arts and crafts, to train rides to the magic garden! Andi has made a special effort to get to know my boy and has really helped him socialise with other children and gain in confidence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Andie has been looking after our 23 month old son for four months so far and we all think she's brilliant. Our son has a wonderful time with Andie and her family, he clearly looks forward to going to her house. Andie takes the kids out to playgroups and soft play and does lots of fun creative activities with them. We have so many bits of artwork our son has made around the house now, as well as a bean growing happily away in the garden!
Andie prepares lovely meals and healthy snacks and our son eats really well on the days he is cared for by her, which is a huge weight off our minds.
We really can't fault Andie at all and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Her house is fun - full of lovely family and friends creating the perfect home from home childcare setting.

Andrea has been looking after our DS for almost 9 months now. He was only 3 months old when she took him in and I can confidently say that finding Andie was the best thing we could've done. She is very caring, she treats our son as one of her own, and she truly cares about the development and wellbeing of children. She even contributed to helping DS with a digestion problem he had earlier on, and worked with us to increase his appetite. Andie always keeps us informed of what she plans to do on the day, and then reports the day activities to us when we pick DS up. She regularly takes the kids out to toddler groups and shopping trips, and our son loves that. He is a happy baby and we can see how happy he is when he goes back to hers the next day.
We recommend Andrea on all levels, as she gives us a priceless piece of mind in a warm family home setting.
