Kirsten and George are brilliant and lively. They gave my son Alex such a great time. Their place is so cosy and welcome for the kids. We thank you very much and would love to go back again.

My daughter goes to Kirsten and George's beautiful home for almost 6 months, enjoys every time she goes there. my daughter gets along well with their daughter goes to same school same class - makes the difference. in addition, my daughter learnt lots of creative arts, involved in festive decoration skills - Halloween, xmass etc.
simplicity, approachable and flexibility are the key aspects I found on Kirsten and George. I recommend !

Kirsten and George are quite simply brilliant. Our son has settled in with them wonderfully after having never spent more than a couple of hours with anyone other than us since birth! He's always coming home with crafts and smiles, they send us gorgeous photographs of him playing happily and he's even started eating his lunch properly. I cannot find a bad word to say about them and would (and have) recommend them to anyone.

Our daughter has been going to Kirsten & George’s home since January 2018 and we couldn’t be happier with the care she’s getting.
Being in a warm, friendly home with 2 other toddlers as well as Kirsten & George’s daughters is clearly good for Mara’s development. They do a variety of activities every day and we love reading her diary at the end of the day.
I was slightly apprehensive about returning to work but Kirsten & George’s warmth, communication and professionalism have made the transition smooth and worry-free. We know that Mara is happy in their home, so we’re happy too!

My daughter has been with Kirsten & George since the beginning of December 2017 and I cannot recommend them enough. She runs excitedly to the door every morning and strolls on in not even glancing back to say good bye. I get a diary home each day outlining what they have done that day and listing the lovely homemade, healthy snacks/food they have eaten. She also comes home with some fabulously creative art work.

They are a lovely couple, very friendly, experienced and approachable whilst also being very professional in what they do which shows in how happy and content the children in their care are.

I have no hesitation in recommending them!!!

Our little boy has been with Kirsten & George for a couple of months now and he's really happy. He starts chatting and kicking his legs on the way up the stairs and always gets a great welcome from either George or Kirsten and usually one of their daughters. When we pick him up he's laughing and full of fun. The diary tells us all about what he's been up to that day; baking, painting, picnics, music time, dancing around... to name a few.

Kirsten & George have been really consultative right from the start, keen to learn about his routine and his likes and dislikes. They have created a home environment for Innes in which he has thrived. Spending time with the other children, who are different ages, has brought him on in his communication and mobility. He is very well cared for and gets lots of attention from their daughters as well. He's a lucky boy.

We would recommend them to anyone.

Myself and my partner were very nervous about leaving our one year old son with anyone, but from our first meeting with Kirsten and George, they were brilliant and he took to them immediately, which at the time was unusual for Sebastian.
The other children in their care are always happy and stimulated, and their home has such a warm loving feel about it, helped by their two fantastic daughters, whom my son absolutely adores.
Sebastian has been with them for almost 3 months now, and he's coming on leaps and bounds. They are always keeping the kids busy, with activities, toddlers, outings and crafts, and they provide a diary every day, letting us know how our son has been and what they've been up to, which makes us feel included.
We could tell from the moment we met George and Kirsten, the type of people they were, and it's such a relief to be able to leave our son with such warm and caring people, who do such an exceptional job.
I would recommend Kirsten and George without hesitation!!!

I was very nervous leaving my son for the first time but Kirsten and George were reassuring and sympathetic. They have welcomed my son into their family and their lovely children are also amazing with him. We had a few expected cries for the first few days dropping him off but now he knocks on the door to get in! Kirsten and George always have him busy whether it be outings, toddlers group, arts and crafts or baking. They write a daily diary with pictures which I look forward to reading each night. It's so lovely when he comes home with things he's made. Angus is generally a happy wee boy but I can tell he is thriving and coming on leaps and bounds in Kirsten and George's care. He is excited to be dropped off and hyper when I collect him.
Kirsten and George are very professional, honest and so approachable, this for me is not just business, it's about trusting people with your little angel and I couldn't be more safe in the knowledge that Angus is being cared for by such exceptional people.
I am so glad that a chance meeting with another delighted mum introduced me to them!

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kirsten and George as childminders. My one year old son started with them in the new year and has settled in very quickly, no doubt because of the high level of care he receives and the great fun he has with Kirsten and George and the other children. He particularly loves their two daughters who, as well as being very kind and caring, definitely seem to have the gift of making Sam laugh! Kirsten and George go out of their way to accommodate Sam's needs and his normal routine and he always comes home happy and babbling about all the things he has done! He participates in lots of different activities and trips in the local area, getting out and about when the Scottish weather allows. It's lovely to know he is being so well looked after by two such warm and caring people. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I was apprehensive initially about sending my daughter to childcare at 8 months as most mothers are, but I have to say it has been such a positive step for both of us. I hear my daughter laughing and giggling as I knock on the door, and she greets me with a huge smile. She is often totally worn out from her busy days with Kirsten and her husband George. The frequently have arts and crafts sessions, baking, trips to the beach, picnics, there is never a dull moment. Her interaction with the other children has proved invaluable to her development. Kirsten and George's two daughters are extremely well mannered and have a lovely nature and are a credit to them both. This fills me with confidence. Kirsten and George have a real love for children which is evident in their work. I can't recommend them highly enough.
