Kirsty looked after my little girl every Tuesday evening from 4 - 7:30 for 8 months while I was at college. My little girl enjoyed going round because Kirsty had plenty of toys/dressing up to play with and also provided a nice tea! My daughter never had any problems and was sad to say goodbye.
I have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty's childcare services and if I am ever in need of childcare again I will most definitely be giving Kirsty a call!

Thank you Kirsty xx

As with most mums going back to work I was anxious to leave my son with anyone, I tried nursery where he just didn't settle at all. I got in contact with Kirsty and she has been absolutely fabulous with very thing. Fred is a slow starter with his speech so Kirsty has gone out of her way to do extra activities to help improve this and that the other children also really enjoy! Fred loves going to Kirsty and I believe she really enjoys having all I te children she looks after, you can see from the amount o extra activities she does with them her job is always a pleasure and never a chore. Kirsty takes the children out a lot which is great forums little monster to run off some steam, regularly going to the woods or beach, farm or toddler groups; at no extra cost to me!

Kirsty is firm with Freddie but always fair and I believe all children should have someone like Kirsty as a role model!

Kirsty has also been great with Freddie's allergies (which is made more difficult as we are not sure what it is he's allergic too) she was happy to list all of the foods and drinks he had and is alleys accommodating with any such request.

As a working mum I truly don't know what I would do with out Kirsty she can always help out last minute And makes my crazy life a little less stressful, thanks you for all you do Kirsty I would be lost without you.

My daughter has been with Kirsty for 8 months now, she has been nothing but happy and content in Kirsty's care. Kirsty is always out and about with the children, I have never known my daughter to have a whole day in! Although, when they are in the house there is every toy a child could ever want! As a working mother, I found potty training a particularly difficult time as I could not be home all of the time to help my daughter, however, Kirsty became a major part in my daughter becoming dry and I could not have done this without Kirsty's support and care for my daughter. I have always found Kirsty to be caring, loving, supportive and trustworthy. I would highly recommend Kirsty to anyone looking for a reliable childminder.

Kirsty is a real gem. She has looked after my child for over 2 years. She does loads of things with the kids, they are always off on outings to loads of places, for which she charges no more.
They have LOADS of toys and craft stuff , many things to do. My little one cries to stay with Kirsty... never wants to come Home.
She is strict but fair and will not tolerate bad behaviour, for which I am very pleased. I would recommend her to anyone , for being a kind lovely person,

I was an anxious mother going back to work full time. I still remember driving away in tears as your putting your precious bundle in somebody elses care, A stranger lets face it.. My daughter Grace was just 9 months when I first handed her over to her new 'school as i used to say', i spent my first few days at work trying to compose my self after blubbing in the toilet. Im not the crying type! But whilst i was crying away Grace was having the time of her life! She had lots of new friends, Zaci, kirstys son teaching her new animal noises, Leyla, kirstys daughter becoming her new role model and best friend and sister as leyla calls her! Sanjita and Bailey the other children Kirsty looks after soon became her guardian angels, making sure she didnt trip or fall.There were lots of new toys to play with and lots of days out. Grace fast left her baby days behind and became a fully fleged toddler, Kirsty beaming, telling me all about her first steps, encouraging her all the way. Unfortuantly Im moving to Nottingham to be with my family. I will be truly devestated to be leaving Kirsty and her family . Whos going to brush her teeth for me now? Kirsty has become her 2nd mum and hand on heart has treated Grace like her own and there is a true bone between them. I wont be crying in the toilet now, ill be crying to take Grace away...Your children will be happy, safe and well looked after with Kirsty, infact you will be lucky to have found a true star.
