Sarah mum of twins

Helen looked after our first born from 2004 -2009 wen ruby started school in different area we were all very sad t not be able to use Helen anymore but after several more years we are pleased to be privileged enough to use her services once again. and what a privilege it is . Helen cares for our  twin boys fulltime  .since been with Helen they have come on leaps and bounds both socially , emotionally and physically .they are always very  very  happy to arrive at Helens each morning and spend their days taking part in all sorts of different groups, outings and activities .Helen is a very calm, relaxed and experienced childminder whom has also cared for my sisters child through recommendation by ourselves.

Helen creates a caring ,nurturing, home from home environment whilst educating and (at times)  disciplining in a professional manner .Helen consistently maintains a very high standards. I can honestly say we feel very happy with the service Helen provides, she is extremely approachable and has excellent communication skills with both child and parents. I can not put into words just how happy we are the care Helen provides and we look forward to many years of using her services for Ted and Rex.

Vicky mum of Annie 

my daughter Annie  went to Helens from 2014  when I returned to work .Annie was around 7 month old and I was nervous like any new parent would be about leaving her with someone other than immediate family. However very quickly I realized that me and my husband and I had made the perfect choice in selecting Helen to look after Annie. we wanted a setting that was home from home which would help Annie s development and expose her to new experiences every week I saw improvements in her abilities, particularly her speech developed quickly .Annie is a happy and confident little girl and Helen is partly responsible for this.i have no hesitation in recommending Helen and im sure she will be a permanent fixture in Annie's early years.

Shelley (mum of willow) 

My daughter willow has been in childcare since she was 5month old, when I had to return back to work. After a really difficult experience with the quality of care she received at a local nursery, I tentatively tried Helen. I can honestly say it was the best decision we ever made.

Willow absolutely adores Helen and her family and is extremely  well looked after there. She gets lots of home cooked meals, many of which Helen grows herself in her allotment. Helen ensures the children get to socialize by attending local child minding groups, and taking them on a variety of outings.she teaches the children a variety of skills, which I believe has brought willow on in her development.

I would without doubt recommend placing your child in Helen's care to anyone .

Karen (Mum of Daisy and Sonny

My childcare experience with helen as my childminder was a very positive experience .It was a very anxious time but leaving my one year old and baby with Helen as I returned to work enabled me to face the challenges of the day. I found Helen to be supportive in every sense, she was practical, reliable and commited. Her knowledge and experience of childcare related issues was reassuring for a new mum. Having Helen as a childminder alleviated the issues of returning to work, she was punctual, genuine and most of all became a very good friend.

 Helen (Mum of son Jacob)

My son was with Helen from the age of six months until he reached three. It is a difficult time for any first time mother to leave her baby at such a young age, but this was made so much easier by the fact that I knew that Jacob was loved and cared for as if  he was one of  Helens own children.  We live in Sowerby and work in Halifax but made the choice to drive 40 minutes out of our way every day as we and Jacob thought so highly of  Helen. He loved every day he spent there, made friends and made great progress. Helen is a firm believer in getting the children out and about and Jacob was always going on trips and attending toddler groups. Jacob is now five and in year one at school and we still meet up with Helen in the holidays as he misses her. 


Cheryl (Mum of Maddison)

My daughter Maddison was with Helen Broscombe's care for almost 2 years, Maddison was a very happy girl whilst in Helens care and only left because she started school! thanks very much Cheryl Watson


Kim (Mum of Sophia)

Helen Broscombe came highly recommended as a childminder by a number of my friends, and it is very clear why. My daughter was in the care of  Helen for 4 months and each day I collected her, she was happy, content and well cared for and enjoyed different activities including trips to the park, childrens music, play gyms, creating cards, paintings etc. Every morning I took Sophia to Helens I personally felt at ease that my daughter was in very capable hands, which is everything a parent wants for their child.
