Childminder for Timperley, Trafford















Liz looked after my grandson for 2 and a half years, until our family moved away.

We have been thrilled with the care that Liz offers and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Liz and her family  take time to know all the children in her care and my grandson really looked forward to going there. It is like a home from  home.

The days out were fantastic, as were all the activities run in the home. Liz makes everyone welcome and is always on hand with advice.

Many thanks Liz, and family you really make a difference.

My son Sam has been going to Liz Shuttleworth for almost three years, starting with her just before he turned one.

I chose Liz for many reasons, but the main one was seeing how all the children in her care were around her. They were fun, cheeky and relaxed, but also respectful of her and her home. When she asked them to do something, they did it willingly and happily. I knew then that this was the kind of environment that I wanted my son to be in.

Since then I have not been disappointed – in fact my expectations have been exceeded. In Liz’s care Sam has thrived. Liz does endless activities with him from arts and crafts, to baking and reading. He also gets a good balance: not only does he get time chilling out at home, but Liz takes him to groups as well so he gets to socialise with other children.

The other children Liz looks after are polite, well mannered, friendly and playful. Sam loves them and they love Sam. I attribute many of Sam’s good habits and behaviour to what Liz has taught him and from what he has learned from the children around him.

I cannot recommend Liz highly enough. Liz and her family have welcomed Sam into their home, and I know when I drop him off in the morning that he’s going to have a packed day full of fun, stimulation and, above all, love and care. I will be very sad when he has to leave to start at Cloverlea.

Liz has looked after my two daughters for over three years now and I couldn’t be happier with the care that they receive, I am happy to go to work each day knowing that my children are in safe hands and will be looked after so well.

Liz is extremely organised and has a variety of different toys and activities for the children to do, each day is structured around the activities of the children. Liz often takes the children on outings and to the Childminders Playgroup every week and this is something that my children really enjoy.

Liz is very caring and is willing to go that extra mile to help you out. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Liz to anyone that wants their children to be cared for in a loving, safe and fun environment.

Kind regards,

I have known Liz for 6 years. My son, Thomas, first went to Liz just before his 2nd birthday and my daughter, Ria, since she was 9 months old. Liz looks after my children 3 days a week, this was for a full day between 7.45am – 6pm but is now before and after school.

On my first meeting with Liz I knew immediately that I would like to send Thomas to her, after having visited a number of childminders in the region. I have been extremely happy with the care both of my children have received throughout the 6 years.

Liz’s home is welcoming, clean and has a huge variety of toys and activities available which she rotates regularly. Over the years my children have been on a number of day trips with Liz and they have enjoyed these. There are also regular trips to the park and library.

Liz communicates clearly to the children and gives them clear direction. She is friendly and my children get on well with her. She encourages independence and good behaviour in the children and has fair approach to discipline. I also feel that I can discuss any issues or concerns I do have regarding their care with Liz in an open and honest manner.

I’m aware Liz keeps up to date and has been on a number of relevant courses and I feel that she fosters a safe and secure environment for childminding.

Liz provides Thomas and Ria with their meals, which are in line with their dietary requirements and also provides healthy snacks.

I feel that the care they receive at Liz’s has had a positive impact on both of my children.
I would recommend Liz as a great and very reliable childminder.
