“I have known Michelle since 2008 and, when she said she was starting her own childcare business, I was absolutely delighted that she agreed to look after my son. Daniel started spending time at Gartmoor Childcare when he was 9 months old and he has always felt very comfortable there. He loves the range of activities, particularly messy play and dancing and is particularly keen on playing in the garden and with anything that has wheels. The facilities at Gartmoor are of an exceptionally high standard, but above all it is Michelle who makes this a special place to send your child. She is such a warm person and genuinely cares about the wellbeing and development of all the children under her care. I have no hesitation in highly recommending both the people, the facilities and the welcome your child will receive at Gartmoor Childcare”. Sarah

“Michelle has been looking after my kids (2 boys aged 3 and 1) for the last few months. My son Max (nearly 4) always tells me he prefers going to Michelle’s than his nursery and his nursery is also outstanding, but he loves the relaxed family atmosphere at Michelle’s lovely home. He has made friends there and when we walk past her door he often tells me he wants to go in and see her. She is caring, friendly and fun. A great childminder”. Monica

“We can’t quite believe that Hannah is ending her time at Gartmoor after 2 years 3 months. You have been such a big part of her life and she will miss you enormously. As you know, entrusting your child into someone else’s care is a big step, however as soon as we met you, we knew you were the right person. We could not have wished for better care for Hannah and it has been so reassuring knowing that she has been is such a loving and nurturing environment and above all, having so much fun. From the outings to the delicious home cooked meals (filled with veg) to the regular updates, we really have appreciated it all. Thank you so very, very much.” Emma, Andy and Hannah.

“Thank you so much for taking such excellent care of Freddie and Freya they have both had an absolute ball with you. I have really appreciated your positive and laid back manner and your fantastic initiative with the kids. It is so nice and reassuring to pick up your child and hear nothing but good things about them. I never imagined that Freya would settle in so quickly but lo and behold, within 3 sessions, she was marching straight in the door with her brother and waving good bye to us! Freddie barely even looked up when we came to pick him up in the evenings!

I think you have the most fantastic set up and it is so much better than a nursery. I loved the fact that you got the kids outdoors so much. I also loved seeing the blog photos and videos of all the different activities you did with the kids indoors – I was always amazed that even though you were in your own home you did the messiest activities I’d ever seen! Somehow as well the kids always seem to come home immaculate! A big thank you to you and all your team.” Claire, Olly, Freddie and Freya.”
