Karen has been looking after our daughter since she was 3 months old (presently 9 months). I would not consider leaving my baby (who was quite colicky at the time) with anyone that I wasn't completely comfortable with. Upon our first few settling in visits I knew she was the one. Karen is genuinely caring and provides a home away from home atmosphere. My daughter is very happy to see Karen and her daughter each morning. Daily playgroups including messy play, sing-a-long, and playtime in the garden are just a few of the fun and exciting daily activities our daughter enjoys participating in. Karen has given me the peace of mind knowing that my daughter is in a safe and stimulating environment. I am truly grateful to Karen for taking excellent care of my bubbly and beautiful baby. Thank you for making my dream to pursue my postgraduate degree a reality!
