My son was looked after by Carina from the age of 9 months to 2 years old. He always loved being dropped off at her home and settled in very quickly with Carina, her own children and the other children in her care. Each week Carina would take my son to local playgroups, the park, soft play and to meet up with other childminders and their children so he was always mixing with children of various ages. Carina’s home was always a welcoming environment, with a lovely play area and garden for the children to enjoy.
Carina also used a great app which meant I could see photos from their days out and activities at home as well as giving me info on what he’d eaten that day, how long he’d slept for etc.
I’m more than happy to recommend Carina as a childminder, I felt very lucky to have found her, as I always knew that my son was having a fun and active day while I was at work!

Carina looked after my son 2 days a week from when I returned to Work when he turned 1. He was in her care for 2 years.
Carina was extremely helpful with the settling in process at the beginning, offering settling in days, finding out as much about him as she could to aid the transition, and giving me lots of updates. And once he was settled he would happily be dropped off at Carina’s in the mornings, and I could tell he had fun when I collected him... to be honest it was hard getting out the house at the end of the day!
Carina always provided a nice & healthy variety of meals and snacks, and he had a nice structure to his day with her. He napped well, had some time to interact with other children at playgroups and outdoors activities with other minded children, and quieter one-on-one time back at the house. I always had a detailed feedback of my son’s day via an app for Chilcare diaries. It included info on nappies/toileting, what he ate, how he is meeting his milestones, what he has been up to, and a photo, which was a really nice touch.
When it emerged he was having problems with his speech, Carina picked up on it early and helped with a referral for speech therapy, and supported us through the process with information and providing my son with activities which could help him. And thanks to this he has caught up well with his speech. My son is quite a timid boy, and Carina was sensitive towards this.
I never had to worry when he was with Carina, and I have no hesitation in recommending her childcare services. She has always been reliable and flexable.

My daughter is now 3 and started with Carina at 10 months old. I have no hesitations in recommending Carina after having such a wonderful experience. Carina and her family are extremely welcoming and we felt we slotted in straight away. My daughter pretty much treating her house as a second home! It is such a lovely set up with the play room and garden activities. My daughter is never short of a play buddy or activity and she comes home beaming and telling me about her day. I of course have already had a sneak preview of her day following a detailed update on her day's activities and many many photos. Fantastic childminder, a great find! Thank you Carina and family x
