Carolyn was a fantastic childminder for my son for just over 2 years. He started with her when he was 11 months old. He loved going to her and the friends that he made there. Carolyn’s home is warm and welcoming and she offers a wide range of activities and experiences for the children. He particularly enjoyed going out to the park and library and meeting with the childminding group.
Carolyn is very friendly and great with the kids. She was flexible when our needs changed also. We are looking to send our second child along next!

Carolyn cared for my daughter and son before and after school / pre school for 2 days a week and cannot praise her enough!

My children loved going to Carolyn's and I always felt they were loved and safe when I had to leave. She was really flexible with my hours I had to work and always let me know how they were getting on and what they were up to which was lovely to know.

We really miss Carolyn and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a child minder with such great experience and caring nature.

Carolyn looks after bothmy 2 and 4 year old boys. They both love going to her house, which tells you everything you need to know!
She is very caring and from the first moment I met her I felt completely at ease. She always plans fun activities for my boys. She is also very flexible which helps with my current situation.
5 star child minder!

Couldn't recommend this lady highly enough. Warm, patient, caring. It was evident when we picked our little girl up that she was a very happy little girl, so much so, she didn't want to come home. Carolyn even let her borrow a pizza and corn on the cob to avoid tears! :)
Thank you Carolyn!

Carolyn has looked after my little girl since she was 11 months old, and is continuing to care for her before and after school when she starts in September.

Carolyn provides a home from home environment for her children, in which my daughter has thrived. I give credit to Carolyn for helping my daughter develop all her early years skills, particular her social development. Carolyn carefully plans the activities for the children's days, and they always come home home talking about their day, often with things they have created.

I have never had any doubt about my daughters safety or happiness when she is with Carolyn, particularly not when she still asks to go on a Saturday!!

It's difficult being a working mum and having to balance responsibilities. Carolyn has made the whole experience easier for me, never letting me down, and making me feel comfortable leaving my daughter with her.
