Mary has looked after my 3 year old boy and 1 year old girl for the last 4 months, only having to leave as we are moving out of the area. Both my children have loved going to her and sometimes refuse to come home when I pick them up. they are really going to miss her.

Mary cared for my son for approximately 3 1/2 years. My son has additional mobility and health needs; cerebral palsy, epilepsy and visual impairment.

Mary was always aware of his needs, she treated him with respect and as an individual. She always gave me a daily update, exposed him to new activities and always tried to include him in all activities.

There was never a time when I felt my son was unhappy or unsafe being in Mary's care.

She always followed her professions procedures and due to my son's needs were implemented at times.

Highly recommended.
