My son has been with Kirsty full time since he was about 7 months old (he is now turning 2 years old), and my daughter has been with Kirsty for the morning school runs for almost a year, and I cannot express in words how brilliant she is at her work and as a person. Kirsty does so much with my son on a daily basis, going out and doing activities, and has a beautiful book to show for it. He often comes home with mothers day / birthday / easter cards / paintings / drawings etc and he is always happy to leave me when he sees Kirsty. Her entire family have treated my children like their own family, and I have always got piece of mind when they are there. She works closely with us, and sticks to the same routines we use at home, my daughter has become the best of friends with her daughter, and my son even cries to leave her at times! Kirsty has always been reliable and understanding, and both of my children always have so much fun in her care. I have also noticed how fast my son is developing, and Kirsty actively encourages him to develop his speech, social and motor skills. We have been so happy with the quality of Kirsty's care for our children, that we would not even consider using another childminder.

Kirsteen is an amazing childminder. She is fun, kind, caring and most of all she is loving to my son Dexter. My son has been with Kirsteen since he was 10 months old, he is now almost 4, he is like family. He has learnt so much in Kirsteen's care. He has so much fun that he never wants to leave... Dexter has a beautiful book of all the things he hs learnt and has done in Kirsteen' s care, so many lovely members!
It is never easy having to go back to work after having your baby, having to chose what is the best thing to do for your child either nursery or childminder however I can truly say I made the right choice, Kirsteen is just the best, Dexter and I just love her.

Kirsteen has been Max's Childminder for just a few months now, but in that short space of time he has thrived in her care. He has become more confident and is learning new skills daily. He has been toilet-trained, learnt to dress/undress himself and is saying new words every day. He is extreemely happy and content in Kirsteen's family home, and when my partner picked him up one day, he commented that Max looked like a member of their family sat at the table eathing his dinner. I would highly recommend Kirsteen as a childminder - she is kind, patient and always happy to discuss any needs/concerns as soon as they arise with diplomacy and genuine concern. Definitely one of the best childminders I've encountered. I felt I could trust her at once and now consider her to be a friend.

Kirsteen is the chilminder to my son who is 18 months old, and i can say without any hesitation that she has been excellent not only at looking after my son but in the way he has devolped in the short time he has spent with her , he comes home happy and contented and has learnt many things whilst in Kirsteens care , from learning basics like how to use paint brushs and pens to an improvement in how he wants to feed himself and it is a joy to see him learn the small basic things when he is in her care , she also cooks him great and tasty fresh home cooked meals!! but most importantly is the way she shows a lot of love and care to the children in her care which, for me is very important.

My 1 and a half year old daughter goes to Kirsteen and has been with her from 9 months old. Kirsteen is very good with the children as she offers a variety of activities for the kids to do, like crafts, playgroups, animal farms and in the summer playing outside. My daugther is very happy with Kirsteen and loves hertoo bits.
