Simone in a word rescued me in the midst of adjusting to the new normal of Covid and took on my 5yo as I worked- my daughters primary school only was allowed to return to school 2 mornings a week after lockdown and as I’m a single mum this wasn’t enough for me. So Simone kindly took her on, and she is very organised, instructions/requests are clear, and she is to the point. There’s nothing more I value more than a childminder who is honest.

She even made my child less of a fussy eater, I was blown away by that. She loves at least trying new things now :). My daughter now refers to Simone as Aunty Simone Childminder!

The only niggle was that the house is a bit of a walk from Streatham Common Station (if you don’t drive!). So you would definitely need to take that into consideration. However as Simone was the same walking distance from my house as daughters school (20 minutes), it didn’t bother me too much.

I look forward to booking any future holiday clubs.

Thank you again, Simone!

My son recently started with Simone and I have to say she is an amazing daycare provider, premises is very clean and tidy.. She is very attentive to his needs and he always leaves with a smile on his face. Would highly recommend.

Simone came to our rescue during the toughest time of Covid to help with my nearly 2 year old and 4 year old whilst I worked. She came to our home and formed instant good relationships with the kids who within days were asking that she didn't go home! Simone is kind and clear but follows through with effective childcare (including boundaries) even when pushed by tantrumming toddler. She had lots of ideas for entertainment and education and even brought some along with her. For the final couple of weeks the kids were in her childcare setting which is a home from home and they enjoyed themselves and ate well and were happy to go back each day!

I chose Simone Little Tots to be my childminder as from the moment I walked in for my viewing she made me feel very welcome, was friendly towards my child and spoke clearly and knowledgeable answering all my questions and informed me about her procedures. Her space for the children is child friendly bright and has a wide range of toys, the room leads on to the garden which allows the children to free flow in to the garden. As a first time Mum and Early year teacher my self it was important for me to find the right environment for my child to ease my going back to work quilt.

Once my child started I knew I had made the right choice. Simone asked me to write a list of things my child like to play with and eat and provided these for my child which I believe helped her to settle quickly. She soon became so excited to go to Simone’s in the morning and never wants to leave when I pick her up in the afternoon.

Simone provide a range of healthy meals and snacks for the children to eat each day. She also takes the children out to a variety of extra curriculum activities over the past year my child has enjoyed going to music classes, playgroups, forest school, to the local park and trips e.g. farm.

Simone and her assistant have been amazing and provided outstanding care for my child. Since being here my child development has come progressed rapidly by provided her with new experiences and developing on her skills, sharing these skills and activities she has enjoyed doing with me which I am then able to continue to develop at home. My daughter continues to amaze me everyday, I constantly get comments of how independent and advance she is for her age.

I would Highly recommend Simone Little Tots.

Simone is by far the kindest, most reliable and trustworthy, consistent and professional childminder I have ever met. Simone's Little Tots is a wonderful and welcoming place for any little one (or Mum) who needs professional, understanding and flexible childcare. Simone, Partner & Assistant are so friendly and welcoming and professional at all times. My son absolutely loves going to Simone's and it's such a lovely atmosphere there. I did not feel one bit anxious about leaving my son at all, It's like dropping your child off to a member or family which feels so important for any Mother who may feel anxious about leaving their child for the first time.

Simone is very flexible, quick to respond to messages, professional, kind and caring and provides a wonderful safe and fun environment for the children to enjoy. 5 stars is NOT enough. Thank you Simone's Litte Tots, you are truely amazing and I am so grateful to have found you!
