Here are some testimonials from parents whose children I have cared for.
"Hannah has been my childminder for almost 2 years now for both of my girls. Since then, myself and my husband have regularly discussed how fortunate we are to have her and never want to let her go! Besides the fact that our girls absolutely adore her, she regularly goes above and beyond what one would expect of a childminder. She takes the girls out every single day, regardless of the weather conditions, To the park, playground, playgroups, library, cinema, museum, zoo, on the bus, on the train etc. Every morning she opens the door with a smile on her face and an enthusiastic greeting aimed directly at the girls. She always put the children first. Hannah is keen on healthy eating, so I am always reassured that they eat well whilst in her care and she lets me know everything they've eaten that day, without my
needing to ask. My girls regularly come home with cards or artwork. This has been for Mothers day, Fathers day, Birthdays, Christmas, St Patricks day (I'm Irish)..even Chinese New Year! They get excited about making a special present for mummy or daddy, and love the aura of secrecy which Hannah creates around every given project. I can recall a 2ft square card to Princess Charlotte, Jacob the teddy sleepover, Buddy the Elf's' misbehaviour and personalised photo he sent to each of my girls. Everyday is an adventure, so my girls say! My precious little girls are so happy with Hannah and genuinely really love her. Its always a struggle to get them out of her house and into my car at the end of the day! "

"Thank you so so much for all you have done for L. Welcoming her into your lovely home. I know she has gained a lot from her time with you and the other children. I think she is only ready for nursery because her experience of child care has been so good. "

"We will never be able to thank you enough for all the love and care you have given J since the very first day he came into your house. As you are more than aware, it is such a huge thing to give your baby into someone else's care, but with you as his childminder we have both felt 100% confident that he has been safe, valued, loved and happy everyday. We will always remember the brilliant activities you have planned for all the children, the baking, day trips and adventures in the woods, beautiful crafts and gifts you've made together, plus all the songs from Mainly Music. Thank you also for being so patient, inclusive and creative in helping J explore food. Lots of love and thanks always. "
