  • We’re very happy with the way ***** has settled into daycare. She literally shouts ‘yay’ when we pull up out the front of your house and asks most days to go to ‘Lisa and Duncan’s’. Thank you very much for massive efforts. We’re very glad we found you both! CR 2018
  • "My son *** attended Whitstable Childcare for over a year (only leaving to attend pre-school) and we were always very happy with the care he received. It is a very professional set up, with the use of baby days online system to take care of the administration as well as giving the ability to provide daily updates and photos of each child. Lisa and Duncan are very kind, calm and confident in their approach to the children and xxx settled very fast. He was was soon talking about the friends he'd made and the fun activities they'd done that day, The setting has a very homely, welcoming feel and Lisa and Duncan work hard to regularly introduce new, stimulating toys for the children. In particular xxx has enjoyed playing out in the garden, but has also loved the time spent on arts and crafts. I hope xxx is able to spend some time with Lisa and Duncan during the school holidays as he now feels so comfortable there and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Whitstable Childcare to anyone else."

  • "Lisa a very calm, efficient and trustworthy childminder. I am always more than happy to leave our little boy in her care. I trust her implicitly." AS 2017
  • "We have always had a sense of the effect of Lisa's input has had on *****. However, since she has started school ( only 3 weeks ) in and at the recent meeting regarding the curriculum for the reception year at Westmeads..... Lisa's work has again been highlighted as I realise even more how the Early Years Foundation that she already follows carries on in the reception year. A lot of the ideas that are introduced to some of the children in their first year at school, Lisa already does. For example, the learning journey that Lisa completes for the children. Her observations on a daily basis give her the insight to be able to look at areas that need to be worked on for the development of your child. AP 2016
  • "Only to say a very big thank you as always for all the love, care, attention and guidance you give to ***** and the support and flexibility you show to both of us. Being a working mum would be a million times harder without this and without the reassurance that ***** is safe, in a lovely, creative, caring home, being cared for by a skilled professional while I m at work. Thank you for being you and for helping ***** to grow into a confident, happy, gorgeous, bright little girl." AP 2015"
  • "***** is the second of my children to be looked after by Lisa. She has been consistently professional, loving and imaginative in looking after them. She is flexible in her activities as well as her availability. I believe she sets the standard for outstanding childcare supported by continuous professional and personal development. ***** spends two days a week with Lisa and also attends a nursery twice a week. Lisa is proactive in communication with the nursery. Most importantly ***** feels safe and secure with Lisa. *****'s spontaneous end of day hugs and kisses for Lisa mean a lot" SH 2015
  • "I have always felt very happy with the standard of care that Lisa provides. I feel that I can trust her completely with my little boy and that she is always on hand to listen if I have any issues to discuss with her. She has helped me a great deal with my older son, who was in her care for 4 years, as he grew up and changed. She is very calm, fair and efficient, and I am glad she is in our lives!" AS 2015
  • "Our son ***** has attended Whitstable Childcare for 6 months. At his previous nursery ***** was adequately happy and developing satisfactorily. Since starting with Lisa ***** has been blissfully happy and his development has rocketed. They cosy environment, the care given by Lisa and the mix of play and activities has been pefect for our son. We are very happy." FT 2015
  • "Both of my children are very happy at Lisa's - they enjoy themselves, learn a lots and return home full of stories about the day. For me, it made the return to work after my maternity leave so much easier knowing ***** was going to be with Lisa as ***** had already been so happy there. I could not even imagine leaving ***** with anyone else. Lisa is not just a childminder to us, she is part of our extended family and we consider ourselves very lucky to have found her. Lisa goes above and beyond the call of duty, most notably when I went into labour with *****. It was 11pm and we could not get hold of our family - within 20 minutes of a phone call Lisa was on the doorstep taking ***** back home with her for a sleepover while we dashed off to the maternity unit" PCJ 2015

Our interaction with you as a family has changed over the years as the children have grown but everything has been adaptable and grown with them. The children are very happy with you. They have different rules with you and are very adaptable to those. I think they will still be coming to your house when they are adults with their own children!" CH 2015
