Some of the lovely testimonials I have received from parents and children.








Nikki Davies - September 2016

I can't rate Tina highly enough! 'E' adores her and has come on so much since she's been going to her.



Caroline and Chris Charlesworth - September 2015

Our daughter has been in the childcare setting with Tina Ballard since March 2008, and our son since early 2010. During the time they have been there, Tina has always provided a friendly, family oriented and safe environment. Our children have always been happy with Tina and her family, and have enjoyed lots of different indoor and outdoor activities with them. Tina has always attended various pre-school groups in the area which we believe has been very beneficial for our children. We have always felt that Tina uses discipline where necessary to ensure that the children behave appropriately towards their peers and other adults in both the childcare setting and at home.

We have never had any cause for concern, and continue to send our children for before and after school care confident that they are happy and secure in their childcare setting. We believe our children have been able to grow and develop with Tina as they would have done at home, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for childcare in a safe family friendly environment.

Dear Tina, Rick & Nicole - July 2015

I can't thank you all enough for being there for my children and me during our time of need for childcare. 

At the very first phone call, you put me at so much ease. You are kind & loving and at the same time you instil in the children the value of discipline and respect. Kids have absolutely loved spending time at yours.

Our move to Caistor , the children having a fabulous time at Caistor Primary has solely been because of you .

 'V's fear of dogs disappeared!! They adore Marley!!

We will miss you all so much. It's a shame we have to move solely to be closer to hospital for oncall.

'N' will continue at Caistor Grammar and you being in Caistor makes me feel that she has family around.

God bless you all. Best wishes, Pooja xx

When I started using Tina my boys were 9 months and almost 2. Having had a bad experience with a nursery I was worried about where they could go and wasn’t sure whether a child minder would be the right decision. I didn’t need to worry.

From the moment I met Tina I knew my boys would fit in to her household perfectly, she is incredibly caring but stern when she needs to be. She has stuck to all the routines I have with them which is brilliant as there is continuity when they are at home too.

They both love her very much and treat her house like their second home, even down to taking apples for the horses and having special cuddles with Marley. They do different activities every day and I love seeing how they have developed with painting skills or listening to the adventures they’ve had out and about.

All in all I would recommend Tina to anyone who wants a home from home environment for their children, with someone who treats them like her own family.
