I knew from the minute I spoke to Charlene on the telephone that I was going to like her! She and Peter provide wonderful care to our 2-year old son and my husband and I are always completely relaxed leaving him with them. Our son is still at the stage of being a bit clingy and teary when we leave him, but when we go to collect him, he always looks very happy and it's often a battle trying to get him to leave the very homely, warm, fun environment! Peter and Charlene are very flexible with regards to our requirements (my husband and I work odd hours sometimes) and have helped us out at very short notice, too. I have no hesitation in recommending Charlene and Peter as wonderful childminders! Our son can't wait to see them again soon!

My 16 months old boy oliver has been going to cm childminding for 3 months now and i can not recommend these people enough. They are brilliant with my boy and have a genuine care for the children. They are very professional and inform you of everything that has happened while your child has been with them. Charlene and Peter are both easy to talk to and are very welcoming.

I can not recommend these childminders enough and my two boys aged 2 & 5 have been happy since day 1, as have we as parents. We love the fact that our boys are in a family environment and still get to have days out and do activities that we would do at home with them. Charlene and Peter always keeps us fully informed of what has happened during the boys time with them and are very easy to speak to. As one parent to another I can not recommend them enough!
