Fabulous! Alison and Alan have been very welcoming. They are extremely professional yet friendly and I feel confident leaving my son in their care. I recieve a detailed review of each days activities and am amazed at the varied programme. They have encouraged my son to develop socially and he is always eager to see them. The house is spacious, modern and immaculately clean. I would recommend them to everyone!
Personable and professional I began my search for childcare a few months ago and after visiting a range of nurseries and childminders in the area, Alison and Alan undoubtedly stood out as the best team I met by far. From the very first day, they took a great interest in not just my daughter, but our whole family as well. Their house is clean, safe and welcoming, and it is an environment that is the right balance of fun, learning and discipline. I also find Alison and Alan flexible and accommodating to the ever changing needs and circumstances of parents. My daughter has now completely settled there and I go to work every morning knowing she's happy and safe.
Trustworthy and flexible I travel abroad, happy in the knowledge that my 5 and 9 year old daughters are safe and happy. Alan and Alison are a great team,flexible ans available to discuss and meet personal requirements. The setting is clean and organised, busy with many happy little faces.
Fantastic care Alison and Alan are amazing childminders for our little girl. They have great values and our daughter always comes home happy after her days with them. Their flexibilty is fantastic and they are incredibly friendly and caring. They have a great clean play area for the children as well as garden equipment and our daughter has come on so much since being with them. She shares a great bond with them and its lovely to know we are leaving her everyday knowing she is happy and well cared for.
Caring Flexible Team I have been very impressed with Alison and Alan they are a very caring husband and wife. They always ensure the safety of the children is paramount and are happy to work around your needs and flexibility. They have a large clean workspace for the children and outdoor apparatus, I feel safe leaving my daughter with them, she has a nice bond with both Alison and Alan and its nice to know when i go to work she is happy in their care :)
We love that 'S' is always excited to see you in the morning. I am always confident he is well cared for. I have appreciated your help and support during the past couple of months more than ever. I think our 'team' approach has ensured 'S' tantrums have decreased. I am pleased that you both keep us updated with his progress..... Thank you for making my days at work worry free! 6/11/13
'C' joined the care of Alison & Alan six months ago and we are amazed at how swiftly he settled. We are extremely satisfied with the level of warmth and nurture offered to 'C' and feel this is the reason he finds their care such a comfortable place to be. The range of activities on offer to 'C' are an additional positive, he enjoys sing and sign in particular and often returns home singing and doing the actions to new tunes. Thank you Alan & Alison 5/12/13
'L' always comes home from Alison & Alans in a very happy mood. We particularly like that 'L' is taken out on outings or to do activities. Its lovely to read her day diary & see that she has been involved with all the activities that the older children have done. We are extremely happy with the care that both Alison & Alan provide and can leave happy knowing she will be safe and well looked after. 17/11/13
We are very happy with the way that 'C' is treated, she seems to have lots of cuddles and is always happy when we come to pick her up. I like being able to read about her day in her daily diary, especially when you write in which activities she has taken part in that day.... We have generally felt that you have supported and upheld any decisions/preferences that we have expressed in regards to her care, e.g how she is fed (baby led weaning in this instance) Overall she seems to have thrived under your care and I definitely feel that it has contributed to her becoming such a happy and confident baby 4/7/13
We are very happy in the care our son has recieved from Alison & Alan in the last 18 months, we especially like the personal touches of a friendly family environment. 'I' enjoys going and is proud to show off his work/paintings. We would definitely like to place our second child with them. 10/11/13
Very efficient and well organised, flexible and helpful in terms of hours offered. Happy and supportive home environment. Caring and loving carers- care couldn't be bettered. 7/11/13
My kids love it when Alison and Alan do different activities with them (making poppies Remembrance Day). They loved Halloween as the play room was decorated with all the pictures the children had done and they got to carve a pumpkin. I feel Alison & Alan really try to get the children into the spirit of learning by making and doing things. My children have blossomed under their care and I have no problems with their care. 14/11/13
Dear Alison & Alan. I am very happy with your service. My son loves coming to your childcare. My son making good progress in learning English. Overall I am happy with your service. 17/11/13
Alison and Alans' setting has many strengths which we as a family who use their childcare need: Their home regarding resources and space is fab, we love the playroom, the garden & equipment, the kitchen with plenty of space for messy play and mealtimes. We love how the seasons & knowledge of the world is celebrated- specific holidays are explored in addition to cultural holidays (e.g halloween, Christmas, Diwali, bonfire night etc) Partnership with parents - good verbal & written communication regarding children and daily care Both my boys are happy at this setting. My youngest son has varied lovely days which is lovely when I have to leave him for long days at work. 8/12/13
