A range of feedback from both parents and their children i have looked after over the years.


Quotes from parents

“Our little boy absolutely loves being with Euan 2 days a week. He eats well and plays hard and we know he is always safe and having a ball! He gets such a range of experiences every day – much more than we could ever have expected when he started with Euan at 15 months – and we can definitely see the benefit of that in his confidence and adventurism! Thanks Euan!”

“We are extremely happy with the level of care, attention, education and fun that Niamh gets at Euan’s and that she counts him as one of the people that she loves.”

“Such a good experience for small people. Highly recommended.

Superb care from a terrific professional and friend. Our boys love coming to Euan’s.”

“Euan regularly looked after our two daughters during their infant and primary stages. They felt very comfortable with him and always had great fun. From our point of view it was great to know that the girls were getting out and about, always on interesting outings, followed by very active and engaging play and games at home. Euan is also a terrific cook. He was always good at ensuring the girls ate healthily and heartily when he looked after them. I would recommend him.”

“We can leave our children with Euan knowing that they will be safe, happy and above all have a great time.  Euan doesn’t just mind your children – he invents, plays, chats and gives them his full attention. I could not recommend a childminder more highly.”

“Euan is a kind, caring and considerate individual and all children love him – I would have no hesitation recommending him in any child minding capacity, from young baby to older child.”

“Euan is fantastic, highly recommend him!”

“I have known Euan Sutherland for many, many years. We lived in the same area in Glasgow and then the same village and when our daughter was a baby and a toddler Euan would childmind on a weekly basis whilst myself and my daughters mother worked in busy jobs. I don’t think there is any other childminder I would feel at ease in leaving a child with – he provided a safe and stimulating environment for her, with lots of creative games, arts and crafts, and importantly too, a healthy and nutritious diet. The childminding community has found a good asset in Euan.”

“I have no hesitation in recommending Euan as a childminder. He looked after both of my children when they were a bit younger and they always loved their time with him. There was lots of imaginative play, care and attention, and I always knew they were in good hands. A lovely man and a natural with the kids. Fantastic.”

“I am always confident Calum is well looked after when with Euan and I feel able to relax that he is in good hands. He is patient, gentle and not fazed by floods of tears. Calum seems to like his company and talks about the activities he has enjoyed. He is the only person to ever put him to bed without his favourite cuddly cow!”

“Our son always has a brilliant time with Euan. In fact he says it best; “it’s fun, exciting and there’s good rules and good games”.”


…and from a few children looked after (some of whom are now adults)

“When I was younger being looked after by Euan was great fun. We would do loads of really interesting activities like Pooh sticks along the river Kelvin or he would help me build a hideout in my garden. He really added to my childhood and it’s thanks to him I had so much fun growing up.”

“Euan looked after me when I was younger and was always great fun. We played lots of games inside and outside and he made brilliant sausage rolls.”

“Throughout my whole childhood, and still now of course, I always get so excited about visiting my Uncle Euan because I know it will mean a weekend of endless hours of crazy board games, baking insane chocolate cakes or wrapped up on the sofa with Snoopy the cat watching all the old box set series of The Simpsons!”

“Uncle Euan rocks! Yeh baby.”
