Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Louise T. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. 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.

Our son Jayden has been attending Louise’s setting for almost 4 years and our son Jamie for 1 year.

In that time we have been grateful for the thoughtful and dynamic childcare provided by Louise and her ability to work closely with us as parents to provide our sons with the best care possible.

We feel completely confident that when in her care ours sons are well looked after and treated with the same care that they would be at home, which we are forever grateful for.

Louise has very high standards around respect for others, celebrating difference and having fun, all of which makes Louise’s house a happy place to be.

Our sons are so happy there and really love Louise. I have been impressed by the variety of toys that Louise has to offer them. Louise provides them with good educational play which is both appropriate for their age group and stimulating for their development.

While they are pleased to see me at the end of the day they are never desperate to go home and always arrives at Louise’s with a smile.

Whenever I have visited Louise’s, I’ve seen all the children happily and safely engaged. I know she really loves the children in her care and it makes her very special.

I highly recommend Louise as a childminder. I know your children would love her as much as mine have and that you will never be disappointed in her services.

Louise has been childminding both my daughters from the age of one year. She is trained to create a stimulating environment for my children to enjoy and thrive in from when they were little till now. Louise also provides toys and activities suitable for children of all ages with the oldest child that she looks after been 9 years. She has also completed courses to extend her skills and works to national standards which helps to promote a consistent quality of care in what she does.
Louise has completed first aid training and a course that covers topics such as child nutrition, food hygiene and health and safety and these shows in the way she keeps her house which is one of the reasons why we preferred Louise to other childminders.
Most of all Louise has been committed to all aspects of my children emotional, social and intellectual development. When on visit to her house there is always plenty of activities going on and lots of toys and books around the house. My children always have lots to talk about when they come home from Louise, what they have learnt and always bring artwork they have done themselves. This was to a point that I decided to leave them with Louise when they were at the stage of joining nursery school. It was a big decision but the quality of work Louise was providing for my children was better than most nursery schools which also included a one to one interaction.
My children have plenty of experience for both indoor and outdoor play. Louise’s weekly timetable includes outdoor activities in different places ranging from animal farms to the zoo, mother and toddler groups and many other places depending on the season. My children are also physically stimulated in different ways such as playing in parks and indoor sports activities around Kent.
Being a student my day starts quite early and have managed to be on time for lectures due to Louise’s flexibility in her start and finish times.
My children have thrived in all aspects under the care of Louise they love and enjoy going to her house and I couldn’t have asked for a better childminder Louise is an excellent childminder and cannot recommend Louise enough.
