Genuine, warm and professional
My son had been with Amy for two years. She has created a happy family environment where he has been able to feel genuinely comfortable and I have been able to have complete confidence that his needs are met sensitively. Amy has gone beyond the expected to be flexible for both of us and nothing is too much trouble. She's always offered a huge range of activities and has encouraged him to grow and experiment whilst never making him feel obliged. I really can recommend her, the genuine affection she has for the children she cares for spills over into everything she does for and with them. We feel we've been lucky to have her.

Welcoming and nurturing childcare setting
My little one has thrived and progressed a lot since joining Amy. She is welcoming, kind and offers a very supportive and nurturing environment. The activities and learning opportunities provided are always creative and imaginative. This enables my child to explore and build on existing learning. My child has been taken out on wide range of outings which he thoroughly enjoys. These outings offer him additional learning experiences outside of the home environment. I would highly recommend Amy and the childcare setting that she provides. Submitted: 18/07/2019
Excellent childcare
Amy is an excellent childminder who has taught my 2 year old so much already since November 2018. My little girl always looks forward to going to Amy's, she's kind, caring, loving and approachable with a love for my child like she's her own. Highly recommended!!! Submitted:18/07/2019
An excellent childminder
Amy has looked after our 3 year old daughter full time during the working day for over 2 years now. Our daughter is thriving under her care. We (the parents and our daughter) were all anxious when starting, especially as she was only 10 months, but Amy worked hard with us to make the transition smooth Amy works hard on providing a stimulating environment. She has created a lovely environment for the children to play in her house and has recently renovated her garden with astroturf and has a sandpit and water table which my daughter loves. Her activities at home are imaginative, entertaining and educational. My daughter has improved her motor skills with the arts and crafts activities which include cooking and painting. Amy works hard on improving her language with songs and stories. Her own children play well with our daughter as well.  Amy frequently takes her children out to playgroups to help with social skills. She takes the children out to a variety of places such as parks, and sometimes goes on excursions to soft play centres, water parks, farms and the beach.My daughter eats with Amy and although being a slightly picky eater, eats a more varied diet with Amy than she does at home with us. Amy updates us with chats at the doorstep and also sending us messages and photos during the day. We are very happy with Amy as our childminder and would strongly recommend her to any other parents.
