Building Friendships


“Lara helped us massively with our son not just with bedtimes but helping us to understand what he needs without getting frustrated. Sticker and reward charts are our new best friends. She really has a calm and collective approach to children and really understands their needs and wants.

Lara also looked after Ollie for 5 weeks while our childcare support was out of action and he had the best time! The interaction and learning activities were great! Ollie was always very happy to go back to Lara and loved his time there! Especially with Peanut the pup and baby Joseph.

If you need any advice on children behaviour, sleepless nights etc. Lara is your definite go to support!”
