Thanks – Your website has saved me loads of time, Bernadette
Just wanted to say thank you for all the support and resources over the last year – you offer a wonderful service. Carol
Thank you looks great, I appreciate your help Jo (written after we designed a new resource for her)
Became a member today via Rutland LA…loving your website!!
I would like to say what a help I have found your site over the last year, it has been so much easier and informative than the NCMA.
Brilliant as always. Many thanks, Clare.
I was inspected by Ofsted at the end of February, it was my first inspection. It was a huge relief to get a ‘good,’ and your website has been invaluable to me. Both my mentor and the inspector liked your learning stories that I use. Whenever I’m talking to someone about childminding or what is involved with the job, I name your website and pass it on, I’m hoping it won’t be long until someone replies ‘I know the childminding cafe, or I use that website.’Thanks again, Jo
Hi, I joined your site a while back which I found really great. Used quite a lot of your ideas, documentation and your advice about what to do for your inspection. Thanks to you, I achieved an Outstanding grade, thank you and keep doing this fab site, Thanks Kate
I’m really impressed with the site and all the info. Think it just might save my sanity! Carol
Many thanks for your help. Your site looks great. Sue
Your e-books are great and thank you so much for the work you have done on the SEF. Cilla
I’m currently in the process of updating all my paperwork & have found your resources invaluable. Thanks Julie
I was inspected on Friday and was told that my paperwork was some of the best she had ever seen. In particular the inspector liked the “starting points”,”observation, assessment & planning record” and “personal plan” forms. She said they were very clear and easy to read and the way they fed into my weekly planner was very effective. This is all thanks to you as I downloaded everything from here. Thank you so much! Trish.
I was really relieved to find your web site and have found it extremely helpful so far. Yours is the first site that seems to be for helping the childminder achieve more by providing the tools rather than just throwing a few ideas out there. Your paperwork and the corresponding information booklets are brilliant. I’m now in the process of giving my policies, procedures and observation and assessment techniques a complete and well needed face lift. Kind regards, Jenny
Well what can I say, “What an amazing site” I have looked over in the past couple of weeks and was impressed, then I wanted to know if the paperwork came in Word to be able to type into, Amanda you were straight back to me via e mail. I joined last night but was out, I have been on the website all evening and amazed with it all. It’s just perfect and a great help to me as a childminder. I have done this job now for 20 years and what huge changes.
All your hard work will make the paperwork so much easier. Thank you so much. Kind Regards Sue
Thanks for this, it is very helpful- Aishah (in reference to the Starting Points record that we designed following Aishah’s suggestion).
Hi, apologies for it taking me so long to reply, but want to thank you for the help, much appreciated… you are a great point of ref. thanks again. Clare.
Hi Amanda I’m new to childminding,and your site is a God send, I have the over all feeling of being out of my depth,but after looking around last night, it’s becoming clearer, so thank you. I like the way the information is written and then examples given . The other sites I use are NCMA, which just panics me, and the childminding forum that is quite helpful with ideas and tips, but your site will always be my 1st stop now. Many thanks Bridget
Thanks, that’s a great help, Jo.
I really appreciate your help and the resources are perfect, Thanks Claire.
Your website has been of great help and I have found it much easier and more useful than the NCMA website. Thanks, Sharon
Hi Amanda, I just wanted to email you to say that your website is Amazing, it’s really helped me get my childminding started. Thank you, Hayley xxx
I’m so glad I have joined, you’re a brilliant help thank you, Joanne
Fantastic as always – Thank you very much, Clare (Member in response to a new resource created)
Can I just say how great I think this site is. I am currently doing my level 3 and when I go to my meetings everyone is amazed by how much I know and it is because I read everything you send out and you are always on the ball. Your information is so helpful. Thank you! – Sharon

Hi there, I am loving this site, at last I feel supported to do the best I can for the children I look after. I think it is a lot to take in at first and this has certainly helped me to break it down and understand how to implement the EYFS, so thanks.

March ’12 (From a member after receiving our monthly newsletter)
Thank you for your brilliant newsletter.
I’ve enjoyed reading all the updates, especially the new changes in the EYFS, use of mobile phones and photographs and the the Q+A section which has reminded me to open a business bank account!!.
I have my inspection on Monday so I’ve already printed out a lot of your info to show I’m on the ball with all recent proposed changes!!!
This is such a brilliant site and I’m so glad to be one of your first members.
Keep up the good work Amanda.
