I can truly not recommend Viv enough! My daughter has only been with Viv for 4 months but there is such a difference in her already. She gets to socialise and make new friends and they are always going out to parks, groups or crafting at home etc. It really is a home from home and although my daughter cries when I drop her off as she misses me Viv and her new friends comfort and support her and Viv usually sends me a picture of her happily playing 5 minutes later. The other thing I'm also so impressed with is the home cooked food she feeds them. I feel my daughter is a lot more intrigued to eat different vegetables being able to watch the other children do it. I could go on for ages about how amazing she is lol. I feel very blessed that she is such a huge part of my daughter growing up in these important years. 10/10

Viv has cared for my two girls since I went back to maternity leave in 2019. My girls adore her and are thriving. Viv has supported me during potty training and I look forward for my son to attend when I return back to work this year :)

My daughter adores Vivian, as soon as we walk towards her gate she kicks her legs with excitement and waves me goodbye. She reaches out for Vivian and she does not even do this for anybody but me, her mum. Vivian is understanding, professional and friendly making my transition of going back to work a breeze. I am a young mum and worry about a lot but I do not have to worry about my daughter being in Vivians care. 10/10, 100% amazing!!!
