Kirsty is an excellent caregiver and I would not hesitate to recommend her services. Kirsty looked after my son for nearly 4 years. She provided him with love, care and support just like we would at home. She helped me with identifying/communicating my son's learning difficulties and managed his behaviour to keep him safe. Kirsty was proactive in completing training to help her support my son and meet his needs. She was amazing with communicating with us and his nursery. I can truly say that Kirsty has been a god send to our family. She has contributed so much to the happy and loving little boy we have today and we can never thank her enough. Any child in Kirsty's care will be loved and supported.

Kirsty looked after my son Matthew from 11 months old until he started school in September 2017. Kirsty definitely provides a home from home environment for her minded children, and takes great care in ensuring the dynamics between her minded children work. Matthew thrived with Kirsty; he was quite a stubborn and strong-willed toddler and Kirsty was amazing, putting so much effort to ensure consistent care, and it made us better parents as we didn't want to undo Kirsty's great work. Matthew still runs to Kirsty for a hug at school and remembers very fondly his time in her care. I couldn't recommend Kirsty highly enough as a minder. All the children in her care are equally important to Kirsty, and she offer affection, kindness, generosity of spirit and is consistent in all she does.
