This is my first experience of having someone looking after my twins and she has made it so smooth. Diane is friendly and open. She sat me down and explained everything before my twins started which was very comforting. She goes above and beyond for all the children she cares for and ensures they are safe. There are always a variety of activities to occupy the children and learn new skills. I would definitely recommend her!

My children of the ages 18 Months and 3 had a great experience whenever they came to Diane. She was very attentive even with unreliable hours with mine and my husbands work. She taught my children a lot in regards to their early years development and also french phrases which my children still love today! Only reason we had to leave is due to us moving away, but would highly recommend.
