All 3 of my children have been to Catherine and she is absolutely fantastic, my kids love it and have met lovely wee friends. Its definitely home from home and they are still learning while having fun. Day trip to parks and beeches, walks down the forest, cinema trips and much more my children don’t want to come home and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Catherine goes above and beyond to help us and we are so thankful for a fantastic childminder.
Catherine has cared for both my children over the past 10 years. This really is a home from home for my children. Being a teacher myself, leaving a 6 month old baby in a busy nursery environment wasn’t an option for me as I wanted my children to still get home life experiences daily before having to conform to routines. Catherine has taught my children so much, cared for them like a mother and gave them a second family. Both my children’s closest friends are those they met whilst being cared for by Catherine. My daughter loves going to Catherine’s after school and even although I don’t require anyone to pick my eldest up from school anymore he’s still going to Catherine’s as his bond with her is so strong. I couldn’t recommend her services enough!
Catherine currently looks after both my 4 year old Jacob and she is amazing. Jacob has been with Catherine since he was 1 and he is part of the family to the point where he cries to come home.
Jacob was always very shy but Catherine has really worked on that and he is a different child now, she has also spent time working on preparing him academically for school and the progression we have seen over the past 12-18 months is incredible. Jacob comes home and always talks about how much fun he has had with Catherine and the other kids which is exactly what you need to here as parents.
We had a difficult time with Jacobs health when he was 2 and Catherine went above and beyond to not just support Jacob but to also support us. This is what sets Catherine above the rest she is so caring, supportive and will do anything in her power to help.
Overall Catherine ticks every box and I would highly recommend sending your child to Catherine, it is the best decision my wife and I have ever made.
My son has been attending catherine for childcare for 6 years and I honestly couldn’t fault her service. It truly is a home from home for my son. The kids have such a close bond together and also with Catherine’s own children too. If anyone was looking for childcare I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Catherine was childminder to my daughter when she was just 6 months old until she went to school. I cannot rate her highly enough, my daughter went in happy every morning and came home with lots to tell me about her day, her social skills grew and she learned so much while she was with Catherine. She is a school now in P4 and still runs to Catherine everytime she sees her. I never felt that guilty mum feeling going back to work because my daughter was always in a place where she was loved like she was part of the family. I would definitely highly recommend her.
