My son loved going to see Tobi and take part in all of the fun indoor and outdoor activities that Tobi offers. We used the childminding service last Summer and she is a natural with children!
Both myself and my son instantly got on with Tobi, she is very friendly and you can see how much she loves children. We would not hesitate to use Tobi again.

My child has been attending Kingdom Kids Childcare over the past 4 months and we have nothing but praise for the care she has been receiving. She has settled very well with Tobi and has formed great bonds with her, her children and the other children Tobi looks after. My child is always full of excitement and looks forward to spending time with Tobi and the other children. It is always great to hear that my child gets a good balance of playing as well as learning, as this is very important to us. We have also been appreciative of Tobi's flexibility and understanding. This is a great childcare setting.

My daughter has been going to Kingdomkids for over a year now and I must say that Tobi goes over and above what is expected of a childcare practitioner. I would not be able to work a full time job without the additional support that Tobi gives. Nothing is too much for her and she is always able to accommodate any additional requests.

At Kingdomkids all children are made to feel so special, my daughter actually believes she is one of the family. This is easily done due to the warm loving environment. Kingdomkids is such a beautiful family run service that I certainly could not do without.

I highly recommend kingdomkids and would urge anyone looking for childcare to take a visit, they will certainly be impressed as was I. This has been a totally stress free 'childcare' year, and I cannot thank Tobi enough.
Keep up the good work, you are amazing.

Kingdom kids childcare is one of the best place a parent can think of keeping the child. Tobi is absolutely a fantastic person and provides the facilities in utmost quality. The environment is very kids friendly and the activities are very interesting for my daughter. She loves to go there after school and enjoys her stay there. It is very flexible which really makes it very convenient for working parents.

We met Tobi when our little prince was 16 months old; he had never been left without his dad or myself, so we were very anxious to leave him with a stranger for a number of hours without mum or dad.

We had visited other daycares prior to visiting kingdom kids but once we got to know Tobi and the setup of kingdom kids daycare, our anxieties were very much calmed and we knew our son would be well looked after and would be in an environment where his development would be encouraged which was vital to us.

Tobi is such a natural with kids and endowed with an obvious grace to care for and teach children - no surprise at all having learned Tobi used to be a teacher. Hence, her professionalism, attention to detail and above all her genuine love and affection for children has made a significant impact on our son who much quicker than usual opened up and happily settled in Tobi's care and embrace. Pictures (learning, playing, baking etc) and videos of our son in the App updates always bring such joy to us as we see how happy, playful and comfortable he is with Tobi and we have found her commitment to keeping us informed simply amazing; this has greatly enabled us to work together with Tobi especially on developmental goals / areas of leaning. We are also pleased with the variety of Healthy foods our son has taken to since being at Kingdom kids.

Kingdom Kids creates a playful, relaxed and educative environment in which a child certainly will thrive.

We are overjoyed to have found a daycare where we leave our son in safe and dependable hands and it is simply heartwarming to see the beautiful bond he has formed with Tobi; he always comes home from daycare content and happy which is priceless.

If we had to describe Tobi in two words, 'Absolute Godsend' would certainly be fitting. We are grateful indeed.
