Kim has been amazing from the moment we met her. If you visit Kim, you will choose Kim, she just stands out from the rest!
Since starting my son has settled so well and is excited every morning to go to Kim’s!
Kim is open and honest, and communication is great! She does so much with the children in her care for development and of course fun! If she sees gaps or an area of difficulty, she goes above and beyond in trying many different things until a solution is found, that is both comfortable for my son and her, while keeping us inform the whole way.
You can tell that my sons days have been full of joy, and he feels safe and secure! What more can you ask for!

As soon as I met Kim i knew she was the one , she runs an outstanding service and is a natural. She made me going back to work so much easier, my daughter is happy and developing amazingly and I’m certain that is due to Kim’s hard work. She provides a diary of the meals and activities and my daughter comes home with drawings and food she has made. I can’t rate her highly enough.

Kim has been amazing throughout the time she has cared for my little one. Leaving him to return to work was really difficult for me, however Kim did everything she could to make it easier for us both. I couldn't rate her more highly and would recommend her without hesitation.

My son has been attending Kim's setting for three months now and has settled in extremely well. Kim has a beautiful house and a nice big garden with lots of play equipment - slides, trampolines and climbing frames which I knew my very active little boy would love. Kim has been rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted and I can clearly see why. She has a very warm and natural personality and makes play fun, interactive and educational. She sends home a daily report on my son's day - what he has eaten, how long he has slept for, what new words he has said and what he has been up to all day. Kim takes my son to play groups, to the park to feed the ducks, to farms, makes cakes with him - he has a very varied and interesting time table. With both my husband and myself working full time, you can feel very guilty leaving your only child in someone else's care. However, I know that I can relax in the knowledge that he is having a great time and having fun. I have noticed a big improvement in my son's confidence and speech recently - I think Kim has certainly helped him to progress. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kim to other parents and feel very lucky to have found her!
