My little girl has just left the care of Carolyn (to start primary school) where she has been since she was 6 months old. After visiting Carolyn and her home for the first time, I was convinced that my daughter would be well-cared for, nurtured and most importantly safe. I did not even visit any other providers. Carolyn's safe guarding measures alone made me feel very assured. Her home very quickly became my daughter's 2nd home and her favourite days were 'Carolyn days'. Carolyn's home is immaculately clean and the playroom well resourced to aid a child's development. Everyday Carolyn took my daughter out on a visit, whether that was to the park, nature trail, library, rhyme time and many more places. She encourages the children she cares for to form friendships and they enjoy each others company, as well as learning new skills from Carolyn such as sharing and turn taking. She has clear boundaries with all children in her care and she encourages manners and positive behaviour.

During the last 4 years, the care Carolyn has given to my daughter but also support to me as a mum has been outstanding. Carolyn nurtures children and provides exceptional pastoral care as well as focusing on the areas of learning required. Reports were written on my daughters development at the relevant times. Carolyn is flexible and in regular communication, sending daily pictures of my daughter's day. She is supportive and helpful, always having the child's best interests at heart and often offers her advice (e.g. on toilet training, weening,) which is invaluable due to her experience of working with children. She gets to know each child extremely well.

My daughter has left Carolyn now to start school this September but I will definitely continue to use her services in the holidays if needed. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

My son have been with Carolyn since he was 1 and absolutely loves it. It is truly his home away from home. Carolyn is very reliable and truly cares for the kids in her care and I cannot recommend her enough as my son did not settle anywhere as well as he did with her. The setting is always well kept and Carolyn keeps me updated with my son and his day x

My son was looked after by Carolyn for almost two years I couldn’t have wished for a better lady to leave him with, she is very friendly and so good with the children. He loved going there, she would regularly take him out to soft play and the park and would send me photos all the time of him so I knew what he was doing and he was ok, she tried her best to be accommodating as I work on a flexible rota, I honestly don’t feel I could have found anyone better to look after my son. I felt very comfortable leaving him there.

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.
