Since starting this career, in 1999, I have had the joys of a number of children being in my care. here are a few comments I have received from both parents and children:
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent care of K. over the past 9 months"
"I want to thank you for taking on both A. and J. and I am pleased with how they have both been cared for"
"Don't need you for the moment, but if I go back to work after the new baby is born, you've got them"
"To the best childminder ever happy birthday from L"
"Thanks for looking after us Jacqui, your such a great childminder, the best even. I'll miss you a lot and I hope you'll miss me too"
"May we take this opportunity to thank you for all your support over the previous months"
