We visited many childminders in our search for childcare for our son. We were so pleased that we found Kelly and putting our son into care with her for three days a week was the best decision for our son. Kelly had made our son extremely welcome. The settling in process was marvelous, Kelly put on a number of settling in mornings for our boy which really helped with the transition. Kelly has always taken such a great interest in our child and knows him exceptionally well, so can adapt activities for him as he develops and progresses and she can tell immediately if he is ever out of sorts.

Communication with Kelly is wonderful. We get a detailed diary of his antics during the day, including the food he has been trying and the things they get up to every day, such as soft play, going to playgroups, playing with sensory toys, garden play, getting out the paints, visits to the beach, park or playing in the paddling pool/ water table etc etc In addition we get regular photos and videos of the fun they have during the day. It is lovely to be kept so informed of what he is up to and clearly shows what a wonderful time he has.

Our boy always comes home happy from having such busy, stimulating and engaging days. He is really growing as a young person and his days with Kelly have had a huge impact on his development. We really like how it feels like he has become a member of the family!
