Creative and fun childminder
Both of my sons (4 and 1) go to Lisa’s childcare setting. The fact that our second child had a place before he was even born, says it all. We are truly happy with the setting and never considered any other option. My 4-year old has felt at home at Lisa’s from a very young age and still goes there before and after school. Now his little brother spends three days of the week there too, it’s is so nice to see the boys have some brother-time together, despite not being at home.
Our second son (1) never had a problem settling in and seems to have a great time while he is there. Every night Lisa sends a short update on what they did throughout the day, together with some photos, which is such a nice and reassuring thing to read and look at. Lisa and her assistants are very creative in what they do each day, using natural materials, digging in soil, harvesting, playing with water and sand etc. Something that is vital to us are healthy meals, and even my little man shows me that he loves mealtimes with his friends by sitting down on his chair demanding toast as soon as we get through the door.
The fact that it has a family feel to the place, and that the whole family gets involved with the children, I like the most. Considering the time the children spend there, we wanted it to feel like a second home to them rather than a place where they have to go when Mummy and Daddy have to work – and it truly does to them.
When my second son came along, his brother showed no sign of jealousy and was so attentive towards him. I truly believe that he learned to be respectful to other children at Lisa’s and that mixing with children of different age groups spurred on his development and taught him consideration and patience.
I recently had a career change and needless to say things have been manic. However, I could focus on the new job as I was confident that our children are being cared for in a safe and caring environment, which was a tremendous help.
