Steph Says

“I am feeling so touched and overwhelmed by the comments people have made towards my nomination. I started my childminding a year ago due to struggling for flexi childcare for my own two children, due to changes to my personal situation. I never expected the need to be so high and greatly appreciated by the families who use me.”

Two families have shared their views too..

 “As a family we couldn’t be anymore happier with the service we get from Stephanie, she has exceeded our expectations as a childminder, not only is she professional in her setting but also a very successful business women”
“She is very highly skilled at her job and I’m so pleased I have found her to look after Neave. She has made going back to work very easy for me….”

Steph greatly appreciates her business being recognised

“I don’t do my job for awards or further recognition but for the love of seeing children thrive, grow and learn. As well as being able to spend more time with my own young children”
