Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Adele came over at short notice to meet us and we could tell immediately she loves children and is an amazing individual. Tons of references and qualifications. She came back the next day with a bag of surprises and kept the children occupied for hours! As soon as she left they wanted to know when she could come back again.
SO happy to have found her - a real gem.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review.
It was a pure delight to care for your children. I do have some duck quackers to drop off as I promised the children for the next time they visit the duck pond.
Any time you need day time childcare or an evening sitter give me a call I’ll do my best to be available for you.
Wishing you all, all the best
Regards, Adele

Me & my partner met with Adele at her setting a few weeks ago. After our visit, we jumped at the chance for Adele to look after my baby boy, Mason.
Adele was just so so lovely and welcoming, she made us feel very at ease, and explained how she would take care of my 6 month old baby. Every aspect was covered.
Adele is so friendly, lovely & polite, and you can tell how much she loves her job. You can tell this by the way she talks about it, her passion for looking after the children in her care. It really was lovely to see.
Her setting is just wonderful, perfect in my eyes. Everything your child would need & more. I was so so pleased with everything I saw.
Within the hour of leaving Adele's, I contacted her & asked her if she would have my baby boy, she said yes, and I was over the moon!
Unfortunately, I have had to move house! I have moved to a different area, where it is impossible for Adele to do school pick up etc... therefor I had to find a childminder in my area! Which I am extremely upset about. I wish I had never moved away from the Town Moor area, as I am absolutely gutted I can't send my baby boy to Adele.
From what I saw, and from meeting Adele, I would highly recommend! She is just lovely ??

This review has blown me away! How lovely!!
I am very sorry that you have moved away from the area and needed a childminder closer to your new home.
You know where to find me if you ever need me, any time.
Thank you for the recommendation

I am moving the family over to Australia and my boys want me to put Adele in the suitcase and take her with us! Adele has provided the most excellent care for my family, I couldn't have asked for anything more. I feel as though, together as parent and childminder we have excelled in the development of the boys and I am so glad to have seen them break out of their shells and become wonderful characters of their own. I owe this to the social structure and environment Adele provides, she goes above and beyond to ensure each child receives exactly the support and guidance they need. Thank you! :')
I was updated every evening with details of the days activities and have been given photographs and folders to see how the boys were getting along. This really helped with me being at work long hours and wanting to not miss out on their development.

I absolutely recommend Adele's Happy Feet childminding. Her home is clean, spacious, comfortable, full of fun and with a fantastic play and learn zone in the garden too. The children try all different kinds of healthy home cooked food, it's lovely to hear from the boys when they are so excited to have learnt about a new dish (showing me how to make stir fry and eat with chop sticks). They have music sessions, reading, writing, speech, singing, dance, coordination skills, memory development, arts and crafts, imagination play, day trips to the seaside, the farm, the play zone, the museum and I could go on in this list forever. Just know your child will never be bored or unstimulated in this setting.
I have complete faith in Adele to keep my children safe, especially as she ensures that she has her accredited helpers with her when taking day trips.

I'd just like to say a BIG thank you to Adele! You have done wonders for my family and I wish you well for the future. We'll all miss you x

This is a fabulous review to read a pure delight. Thank you so much for your kind words. I have really enjoyed having the boys in my setting we have had lots of fun in our adventures.
I wish you all well and a fabulous new life when you move to Australia.
Thank you once again

Adele looked after my son from him being 12 months old until he was 22 months and he absolutely loved going. He got so much out of it that I actually feel bad that he couldn't continue going once I went on maternity leave with my second child!

She takes the kids out to all kinds of places that help them developmentally whether it be an indoor play area, park, the seaside or Boston Park Farm as well as lots of other places. Not only does she take them places but when they are at her house she gets them involved in all sorts of activities such as arts and crafts, baking, dancing and teaching them things that are age appropriate for them. She has a lovely back garden which has lots of nice toys and she has a patch for growing different types of fruits, vegetables and flowers which the kids help with. I could literally go on and on about the many activities she does with the kids!

I had visited a few other childminders before choosing Adele and she was by far the best, there was no doubt in my mind she was the best childminder for my son.

When you meet her you can see straight away just how much she loves childminding and the joy she gets from looking after and interacting with the children she cares for and you can tell that the children she looks after love being there too.

I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Thank you very much for leaving me such a wonderful review it is so lovely and a pleasure to read. I really loved looking after your beautiful son, we had lots of fun and good times together. All those little moments are beautiful memories. I strive to please, I do put my heart and soul into my job and to read this review makes it all worth while. Thank you once again, this review means the world to me!

My son was looked after by Adele for 2 and a half years (from 9 months old to 3 years) and if it wasn't for the fact he has to start nursery, he would still be going.

From the moment Adele welcomed me in to her home I knew she was the childminder for me. I am very glad I chose her and that she cared for my son as long as she did.

My son thoroughly enjoyed every day he spent with Adele & I had no concerns leaving him with her. I was always blown away by the varied things she did with the children, the places she took them and the things she taught them. There was often times when I practically had to carry my son out of Adele's house because he didn't want to leave! He was always so excited to show me the things he had been doing and tell me all about his day. Picking him up after work was always my favourite thing - I loved finding out what they'd been up to and how much he had enjoyed himself. Adele always provided me with a verbal and written account of the day's activities including all meals and snacks given. Adele always gave my son nutritious home cooked meals - many a time I dropped him off and she already had a stew cooking or a chicken roasting at 8am!

Adele was always flexible and accommodating to our needs and the needs of our son. On the odd occasion she was late back (because the children had been enjoying themselves so much she did not want to rush home) she would always keep us informed and even dropped my son off at home, which is somewhat out of her way, to make things easier for us. She even had my son overnight, on short notice, when I went into labour with my second child.

Adele has gone above and beyond any preconception I had of a childminder and I can't thank her enough for everything she has done for my son. Adele is more than just a childminder; you can tell she thoroughly enjoys her job and has genuine affection for all the children she looks after. She is a credit to the childminding profession.

I have been so happy with Adele, and the service she provided, that I'm hoping circumstances will allow my second son to also go to her, when I return to work next year. I can't imagine anyone else caring for my children.

What a lovely review to read... I feel so proud to be spoken so highly of. I actually cried when I first read this through, it was so, so lovely!!!
I would like to say a 'BIG THANK YOU' for choosing me to be your son's childminder. I am so happy that you are so happy with the standard of service I provide, this review has made it all the more worth while. Your little boy has been a real pleasure to look after. I am sorry he has had to move on but so pleased that he is so ready for BIG SCHOOL nursery! I love the lovely photo you sent me of him wearing his new school uniform on his first day. I will truely treasure it for ever!

Love Adele x
