I have taken some small clips from past and present parents. All reference are available to see on visits.

'Rachael has provided a stable, loving enviroment for both my children and they are very happy to go to her. Rachael  has provided activities that have fed the needs of both my children, she continued with many of the old fashioned 'home values' that I want for my children to have.'

'Rachael is committed to her work, her organisation and administration is always managed and upto date, she is flexible with my changing shift patterns and seems to continually look at new ways to improve her already outstanding service.'

'I have always found her to be reliable, trustworthy, responsible, and hardworking as well as warm, thoughtful and caring person.'

'I have peace of mind that my daughter gets safely to and from school, as is safe and happy in a lovely enviroment with plenty to occupy herself with.'

'Rachael has shown herself to have a very professional attitude to her work. She has never taken time off due to illness and tries to arrange appointments for herself and family outside of working hours but where this is unavoidable she gives extended notice period to allow me to make alternative arrangements. I have never heard her raise her voice to a child but she makes it clear when any child's behaviour is unacceptable, she also tries to promote a self-confidence and independence in the children that is appropriate for their age.'

'On a purely practical level Rachael has a 'can do' attitude when it comes to the inevitable last minute problems that all working parents will encounter from time to time-from being late to pick up, additional early starts and even dropping our child off for us- Rachael has always taken these things in her stride and never complained about the inconvenience. The best reference we can give is the relationship that our child has with Rachael. He holds her in genuine affection and always looks forward every day to his time in her care.'
