Carole has been amazing with my little girl who started off very anxious about going into childcare. We got to know Carole via the mums and tots group she runs at Lostock Gralam community centre. This gives the children a great opportunity to mix with others in a play environment. On the other days of the week Carole takes the children on outdoor adventures or sensory play if the weather does not permit. My little girl has loved these outings. Along with proudly bringing home various pieces of work from her afternoon craft activities.
I really like that Carole has a strong network of childminder friends. They all arrange outings together and attend the mums and tots group. This gives the children a great opportunity to expand their friendships with others to create a trusted community.
Carole has also been excellent with my daughter's dairy allergy. We had a meeting to discuss her dietary requirements before care started and there have never been any issues at all. Once trialing the milk ladder, I listed which foods were safe and Carole has kept me informed of any food my little one has eaten that day so I could check for reactions. She's been a great help.
Carole is more like a family member to not just the children but the parents too. She is very warm, caring and will always try her best to help people. A real mother hen.

Carole has minded my child Jack since he was 10 months old. From day one Carole has provided a caring, loving, safe, home from home environment which was a very important factor for me.
Carole goes above and beyond her caring duties, making you feel part of the family. Nothing is too much trouble. If Carole can help, then she will!
Alongside the excellent day to day care, Carole provides learning support for all levels of the child's development, all the way to preparation for pre-school.

Facilities are fantastic!! Jack loves the garden activities and multiple toys that are available for him to play with. Very often he has not wanted to come home because he has been busy having too much fun!

I would whole heartily recommend Carole's services.

Carole has looked after my daughter since she was 6 months old. Carole is a very caring, thoughtful and very loving lady. My daughter has been learning new things everyday as Carole is always doing something with the children to help their development. My daughter is very well looked after and I feel very settled whilst my daughter is in Carole's care knowing she is safe and cared for. My daughter settled in with Carole very quickly and Carole gained her trust quickly too. There is a large playroom and outdoor area which is very safe for the children and also Carole's house is very clean. I would recommend Carole to anyone as I know they wouldn't be disappointed in her. Amazing lady.
