Rose & James were perfect for my little girl. Together they helped her to start speaking more in English, to eat better, nap quicker in the afternoon . It was amazing , how my little Iris developed in such a short time. Thank you so much Rose for what you did for my family when it was most needed. Highly recommended!

Thankyou so much for the lovely review.
It was a pleasure looking after Iris as she was so happy, caring & friendly & the other children loved having her here. We miss her & hope she settled well in her new home & setting. 🤗xx

Brilliant childminder and a lovely, really warm person!

Our son loved being there, he was really happy and comfortable from the beginning, which made it very easy for
Sometimes it can be very difficult when it comes to leaving your child with someone, but we didn’t have such problem! He loved it there from the very first time we came for an interview!🤗
He sure had a great time, learned a lot and was looked after very well.
Unfortunately, we have moved home so we had to place our son in a nursery closer to home, but i know for sure that my little Oliver will definitely miss his Auntie Rose and Uncle James..😊🎈

We would like to say a big THANK YOU for all your help and support!
