Didcot Childminder Childminder
Sandra & Darren

Theresa starting caring for our daughter in 2013, from our first meeting we felt that Theresa was the right person to support our family with childcare. We could see how important the well being and development of individual children was to her and liked that she did not shy away from Perpetual Childcare being a business and an opportunity for her to develop personally.  


We've always known how to access policy documents and have been appropriately informed when changes in Theresa's personal life have impacted on our family, e.g. when she's moved house and the care setting has changed.


We continue to find Theresa to be easy to approach and communicate with, she is open to suggestions and working with our family for the best possible care and development of our children. She started caring for our son in 2020, in 2021 we discovered he has Focal Epilepsy, Theresa and the team have completed training developed by charity Young Epilepsy. She regularly shares updates re. completed CPD via the Perpetual Childcare Facebook page. 


Theresa offers a wide range of activities in her thoughtfully designed, nurturing environment. Activities are adapted to suit the child's interest and they are encouraged to bring toys from home to share with their friends.


Theresa and her team have been pivotal to the development and growing independence of both of our children.


Our 4yr old son tells us excitedly about his day's with his friends and is able to talk about the adults in the setting who look after him. He will continue attending until he starts school in September 2024.


We couldn't wish for better childcare. The Perpetual Childcare setting is like a family. The staff are all caring and kind which rubs off on the children. Our two children love their 'Theresa days', there's always new activities and learning and they eat better than we do! We couldn't imagine taking them anywhere else, and when we moved out of Didcot we continued to bring them. 


Denis has had potty training at home and in the prior 8 months of his last nursery he refused to go without his nappies. But from the first week of visiting your day care, he has began using the toilet. The same things can also be seen with his usage of please and since the first week at your day care he has began using it and has become very polite. Denis has also become very happy and has lost his anger which he used to have when he used to return from the nursery he used to go to. I wish to thank you for ingraining these positive changes in him.

Thank you so much for a great year for Keziah. She is always happy to come to you & even sometimes wants to when she shouldn't. She always seems to have a lovely time & it's great going to work knowing that she is being well cared for. We've also really appreciated your flexibility.


Max has been going to perpetual childcare since being 8 months old and is now 2. He has always enjoyed going, and I don’t think I have ever seen him cry when dropped off at the door. This is clearly a sign that he feels comfortable going there. He always seems happy to see his friends and the staff and definitely now remembers the name of everyone and loves to recount them at the end of the day.


Theresa is amazing at keeping on top of her training as well as the staff’s qualifications. Everyone seems really overqualified and seems to go over and beyond the requirements. She has so many activities planned for the weeks, with themes and learning lessons for all ages. Everyone seems to be included in all activities. They also have a lot of outdoor time and seem truly stimulated by all the toys available.


We also really enjoyed the fact that Theresa had a dog (sweet Megan) which meant that max got comfortable around other animals, especially dogs, in all situations. he definitely loved Megan.


I am truly amazed at how well the setting is run, how the tracking of the progress of the children and next developmental steps is followed, how the app tracks the naps, nappies and meals, all the information is there. We really trust perpetual childcare to look after our little one which can be such a daunting thing as new parents.

I am writing to express my wholehearted endorsement of our child minder’s services. Perpetual childcare has always kept us up-to-date with very good methods of communication and consistently ensured that we are well-informed and engaged with our child’s daily experiences and developmental progress. On the infrequent occasions when we have had to make small adjustments to our routine, they have always been accommodated. Our daughter returns home everyday happy having enjoyed a range of activities provided that are both stimulating and educational, offering our child the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow in a nurturing environment. The creativity and thoughtfulness put into each activity are evident, and her growth in skills (physical and communication) is a testament to their effectiveness. The menu offered to our daughter is exceptionally varied, perfectly balanced and always enjoyed by our toddler. On the occasions when our daughter has refused breakfast with us, she has always been provided with food on arrival with Theresa. In summary, our childminder has exceeded our expectations in providing high-quality care and an enriching atmosphere for our child. We highly recommend their services to any parent seeking a reliable, communicative, and dedicated professional in childcare.

We cannot thank you enough for taking good care of Bercel! He has flourished at your place! We wish that we could take you with us. We will miss you so much. We still might invite you to birthday parties if thats okay. I'm sure Bercel would love to see you. Lots of love Bercel, Blanka, Peter.


Both our boys were with Theresa, the oldest started when he was 8 months old and our youngest was with her for almost 3 years now and the amount of care and support for us as a family it can not be put into words, we will forever be grateful and we'll recommend Theresa's setting to anyone. I'm sorry we can't put more stars* for her because she is the absolute best, thank you for all the care that you provided for our boys.

When we first met Theresa, we were struck by the attention and respect she exhibited towards children in her care. She is passionate and genuinely cares about the development of children, seeing it more like a mission than a job.


The days at Theresa’s are filled with laughter, exploration, outdoor play and friendship. One of the priorities for Theresa is to help children gain independence and confidence in their abilities which will help them at school and in their later life - and that sense of empowerment of children is a signature trait of Perpetual Childcare.


On top of all of that, the food served at Theresa’s is out-of-this-world tasty and of brilliant variety. We feel extremely lucky to have had Theresa be part of our daughter’s journey and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Henry has been in Theresa's care from 9 months and Harrision from 6 months and during this time both have grown into happy and confident young men. Theresa has played a huge part in their development and has given them guidance in manners, responsibility, sharing and of course play time. I would highly recommend Theresa as a childminder and have found her to be trustworthy, helpful, competent, concientious and confident in her abilities. 


My wife and I both work full time and have been able to do so because we know Henry and Harrison enjoy their time at Theresa's, and look forward to going each day. They have enjoyed growing vegetables, hatching butterflies, and numerous other activities that have been organised for their benefit. 


We have used Theresa as a childminder for both children over three years. We have been extremely satisfied with the care provided. Theresa provides a safe environment and takes care of our individual needs, and has been very supportive when needed to change the hours and arranging an essential nursery pick up. There is also plenty going on, and the age appropriate activities are fantastic, whether that is digging potatoes or drawing butterlfies. My daughter will miss her so much when she starts school in September, she has been fantastic with Caitlin. So just to sum, we are extremely happy and grateful for the wonderful care that has been provided.
