Who We Are
My partner and I live in Edenbridge with our two children, Hallam and Orla. Hallam and Orla are currently in Primary school. We previously lived in Somerset before moving to Edenbridge in 2006. We live in a very child friendly house situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, our house has a good size secure garden and we are very lucky to live seconds away from the local recreation ground.
Lisa has been looking after my little boy for a year now. It was the first time that I had to use a child minder and not a member of the family, and had no idea where to start/what to ask etc.
Lisa had been recommended on various sites that I had seen, and is also a friend of a friend so i thought that would be a good start to make her my first on the list, and then rightly or wrongly i didn't look elsewhere. I wasn't too keen on placing my little boy within a nursery style setting. Given that he would have only been 6 months old, I knew I would rather him be with someone who could give him a bit more attention and play 'mum' when I wasn't there and this is exactly what Lisa does. She made us feel very welcome and put us straight at ease on our first meeting.
Although Lisa only has my little boy once a week they have built up a brilliant bond. He would always reach out for her when I dropped him off in the beginning and now walks straight in to her house without even looking back to see me! Which to me shows a clear sign of how comfortable he is with her and how well they get on!
They get up to lots together regularly going to the local playgroups and out for walks, as well as having a variety of toys and bits at home to keep him amused/busy. I am told each day what they have been up to and get sent photos as well.
I would happily recommend Lisa to anyone.
