Gina is a fantastic childminder and the care and support we have received from her for the last couple of months was truly amazing. Her experience is vast and has been really beneficial for my daughter to be in her care. She incorporates great manners to children and is always polite , kind and helpful.

Thank you Gina ,

Gina is amazing. Always willing to help and provide advice from her extensive knowledge of children. She is friendly, warm and caring whilst also being firm, setting appropriate boundaries for our children.

Her house is absolutely fantastic, perfectly equipped for fun and learning. There are toys and activities to suit all age groups, including a wonderful back garden with plenty to occupy them - including chickens!

Gina provides a variety of homemade nutritious meals, my son insists she cooks the best spaghetti bolognese ever!

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gina as a first class child minder

Gina looked after my son Alex, who was then 4, part time for a year from September 2012 – September 2013. I knew of Gina through friends and associates at Tolworth children’s centre and Tolworth Infant and Junior schools as she has a good reputation within the local community as an established and highly experienced childminder. Many of the children Gina looks after attend these and other local schools and she is well known and highly respected by the teachers and staff.

Alex settled very well at Gina’s and enjoyed his time there. Gina has a large house and garden that is equipped brilliantly for children of all ages from babies to junior school age. She would always have activities for Alex to do and would sometimes take him to local play groups and on outings and trips which he always thoroughly enjoyed.

I found Gina to be genuine, professional and flexible and would certainly recommend her as a childminder for children of all ages.

My 18 month old daughter has been in Gina's care for 3 days a week for the last 7 months and I couldn't be happier. Gina's home is always warm and welcoming and she is great with my daughter - when I come to pick her up after a long day she is always laughing and having a lovely time. Gina does loads of activities with the children, from cooking, dancing and drawing at home to days out. She visits other child minders and play groups so the children get to socialise lots, and my daughter's speech has come on amazingly in Gina's care. She is also very caring and flexible. I couldn't recommend Gina more highly and it really makes my life easier knowing my daughter is so well cared for while I'm at work.

Gina has been looking after my children for many years now, having started when our eldest was only 6 months old.

Gina is kind, attentive and runs a tight ship. Her house is very well equipped with toys for kids of all age ranges as well as plenty of books. When the weather is good they love to play outside in Gina's large garden where there are plenty of outdoor toys.

She's also a real part of the local community, which means the kids socialise with lots of other children who are visiting other childminders.

All in all, highly recommended.
