Parent’s Views

We have been very fortunate to have worked with these lovely families who had great things to say about us. We have many more testimonials as well as completed questionnaires from our current parents which you are welcome to read should you decide to visit. You are also welcome to make contact with one of our current parents to ask them about us.


“When I first looked into childcare for my then 9 month old son, I was so anxious about leaving him with a stranger. Thankfully, Suzanne and her wonderful team put me completely at ease and made the whole experience so much easier. Little Flowers is a unique setting. It provides a loving and nurturing home from home environment as you would expect of a childminder but with the knowledge, experience and professionalism of a bigger provision. The higher ratio of adults to children means that I have always felt completely confident that my son is in a secure and stimulating environment and communication between Suzanne and home is excellent. We have been so well supported with issues such as weaning and toileting. Most importantly, though, my son has been so happy to go and it has been lovely to watch him grow and learn and to see the genuine affection he has for the adults and other children and theirs for him. Two and a half years on, he is now ready to move on to his next setting with confidence. I am so grateful we found Suzanne and would thoroughly recommend Little Flowers to any prospective parent looking for childcare for their little one.” September 2019
“We couldn’t ask for a better childcare setting for our daughter, who is now almost 2y. Suzanne and her team take such good care of the children, always inventing fun and educational activities, and they go out of their way to meet each child’s individual needs. The parent communication is also very good, we know what our daughter is up to each day and if there are any issues. We feel really comfortable leaving our daughter there, and she loves her time with them! They also have a lovely outdoor garden, dedicated activity areas, etc. We cannot recommend them highly enough.” August 2019
“Our Daughter has been going to Flowers since she was 9 months, she’s now 22months. She loves it, the team are great and she always comes home having enjoyed her day. Can’t recommend highly enough.” January 2018

“My daughter loves going to Flowers Day Care. She’s just coming up to 2 and has been there since she was 6 months. She is very well looked after and all I hear in the car when I pick her up is how much she loves Margaret. Suzanne and her team are so flexible its almost unbelievable. I honestly could not rate or recommend Flowers Day Care more highly!” September 2017

“Excellent communication, love the daily diary and whattsapp group. He does some lovely crafts there and always goes in and comes out with a big smile!”  August 2017

 “We like the fact that we know my son’s needs are met, he’s in a safe and very nurturing and caring environment and every effort is made to assist with his learning, growth and development.” July 2017

“Thank you for all your reassurance at what could potentially have been a really difficult time (going back to work). I really do feel that X is in safe and caring hands. I think the whattsapp group is great and we love / appreciate getting updates. July 2017

“Very professional in all aspects of X’s care. Very willing to adopt to changes in my work and also X’s care and medical needs. All in all we are very pleased with X’s care and its lovely to see how excited X is to arrive at the childminder’s, sometimes not wanting to leave!” May 2017

“Our daughter started at Flowers Day Care just before turning 1 and she has absolutely loved it there. She built up such a lovely relationship with both Suzanne and Margaret, as well as the other children. A wide range of activities, games and singing was always organised and our daughter was always very happy to be dropped off there in the morning. As parents, we were kept very well informed of X’s time there with her diary that was filled in daily and being sent regular photos. I would recommend this childminder to anyone!” October 2016

“My little boy who was 1.5 yrs when we relocated to London and started with Suzanne and Margaret was understandably undergoing lots of change at the time. The ladies’ patience and understanding with him and his issues with food and specifically lumps, was immediately reassuring and put us totally at ease. They are always very calm and confident about their ability to get him settled and they have done an amazing job! He gets lots of cuddles and attention from Margaret which he loved and the ladies, and their amazing new assistant Lisa, have worked wonders with settling him and indulging him in his airplane spotting obsession and even advancing him with food. He has done so much since he started with playing, face painting, music time (which he loves!), reading and outdoor play. it was very hard for us to trust someone with our only child in another country but we trusted these ladies straight away and they have not only been extremely professional but very understanding and flexible of our changing circumstances and most importantly, very nurturing to our little boy. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you Suzanne, Margaret and Lisa for your personal approach with our little boy.” October 2016

“Thank you so much to Suzanne and Margaret for looking after my daughter, she loved coming to you everyday. The short time she was with you she learnt so much, she loved playing with the other children. She wouldn’t want to leave some days.” June 2016

“We feel very lucky to have found Suzanne and Margaret at Flowers Daycare. They have been looking after our daughter for 3 days a week since she was a year old, after I went back to work. We are nearing the end of our time with Suzanne and Margaret, they have helped shape our daughter into a happy and confident little girl. She has been kept busy with activities, playing, arts and crafts, etc, as well as mixing with other kids her age/younger/older. We feel Flowers Daycare really has provided that home away from home setting, but with educational activities thrown in the mix. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough, if this is the type of environment you want for your child whilst you can’t be with them for what ever reason.” June 2016

“Our daughter was only 9 month old when we first left her in the care of Flowers Day Care. She is now almost 2 and has developped into a happy and very confident little girl. She is always very happy to go there and has so much fun playing, painting, singing and dancing…. that she sometimes is not very happy to leave !!! Sadly we are moving too far away to stay with Flowers Day Care…We would highly recommend them as they make the perfect team : highly professional, warm and fun!” January 2016

“My daughter has spent the last year and a half in the wonderful care of Flowers Day Care. I really cannot recommend them highly enough – they were a real home from home for her, going out of their way to provide care in the same way that we do at home (we’re cloth nappy using hippies and they had no problem with this at all). We sadly moved recently and it proved too long to drive her there and back still, otherwise we would still be there.Thankyou Suzanne & Margaret for all your help, you really are wonderful!” October 2015

“I am so glad I found Suzanne and Margaret. The nursery space is great with separate play, sleeping and dining areas plus a huge garden. I was sad to leave my then 5 month old son to go back to work but 2 months on, although still sad to leave him, I am happy knowing that he is in a loving, caring, stimulating environment. They are extremely professional and adhere closely to all the childcare guidelines/regulations required but have created a homely, welcoming environment for the babies/toddlers to play as well as learn. My older son goes to Flowers Daycare after school also and the fact that Suzanne can get him to eat vegetables is also testament to how good they are! I would highly recommend Flowers Day Care to anyone looking for a local, friendly, professional childcare team.”  January 2015

“Flowers have been looking after our son since June 2014. She was the only childminder we looked at and knew instantly we wanted her to look after him. They provide a warm and inviting home from home environment and are very attentive to the children in their care. Our son comes home very happy and smiley from his day which is so lovely to see. He has developed lots since starting and we look forward to reading his daily diary to see what he has been getting up to. We have recently moved to another area so sadly we have to move him to another child minder. If we could have moved Flowers Day Care with us we would have!! I cannot praise them highly enough.” January 2015

“Suzanne has been our childminder for nearly a year now and we couldn’t have asked for a better service. Our son George loves his regular days with Suzanne and has made a very close bond with Suzanne, her daughter and the other children that Suzanne cares for. Suzanne also cares for our daughter occasionally during school holidays and does a great job of catering for both children despite the age difference. Suzanne provides excellent means for communication so we are always aware of what X & X have been up to and are able to comment/discuss anything as necessary. X & X are always happy and well fed after a day with Suzanne – what more could you ask for!? Oh I know…. a babysitter too – yep Suzanne has done that for us also!” June 2012

Communication is great, as is the advice given
