My child was with Petra from the age of 9 months and we have only recently left Petra as my daughter is now entering preschool at the age of 3. Petra became like a second mum to my daughter and her warmth, understanding of the child’s needs, and general positive attitude made me feel comfortable returning back to full time work and leaving my 9 month daughter with her. Petra and the ladies that assist her are all excellent and Petra truly is the best childminder you could hope for. My daughter will miss her time with Petra very much.

From day one I knew Elsie, my then 11 month old would be happy with Petra, Matt and of course Google the golden retriever. A warm and friendly setting, I was kept up to date with Elsie's progress through both Tapestry (an online portal) and the weekly reports. A fun, happy and educational environment is quite a challenge to create but the team manage it very well! At times Elsie didn't want to leave for the day. Petra is very organised and thorough in every aspect of her job and is such a lovely person too. They were very supportive to us when I had a 2nd baby! We moved from the area so sadly we had to take Elsie out but I would highly recommend Kool Kids childminders to any parent.

As a parent, I entrusted my Emilia to Petra and Matus, and I am grateful for their loving care and guidance she received while attending Kool kids. They both look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My daughter had been blessed with awesome teachers who understood her challenges, and handle her with grace. She had learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that go on each day now at "reception”
I always received daily reports, which told me how she eats, sleeps and plays.
Fantastic was that she had created an amazing bond with Google. ( golden retriever) whom she mention often. I would love to wish Kool Kids an amazing time, full of love and laughter.

We had never left our son with anyone and we’re extremely anxious about finding childcare. From the moment we met Petra and Matt we knew we had found the right place. They were so welcoming and even our 10 month old didn’t cry (which he had everywhere else we visited!). My son’s time with Petra and Matt was great. He loved going and developed so much while he was there. I was a bit nervous about there being a dog but Google is just gorgeous and Harry loves her. The environment is really nurturing and lots of different activities for the children to do and we have a fantastic collection of artwork now! I loved the reports that came home every week which gave us a real sense of what Harry did. Petra went out of her way to help and support us as parents and we got so much helpful advice (which worked!). She was also particularly supportive in an emergency situation and can’t thank her enough for the extra care she gave Harry during that time.
We have sadly moved out of the area now. Although we have found a lovely nursery for him, it just doesn’t compare to the care we had at Petra. We miss Petra and Matt and google so much and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Petra and Mashko have provided a great setting for our son. He absolutely loves going and sometimes doesn't want to leave. They provide a lovin caring environment which is secure. This has given me peace of mind that I know our son is really looked after. We also really like the weekly report that details food our son has eaten and the activities he had done that day aswell as tapestry observations.
We are so happy that our son went Petra's and I wouldn't have considered anywhere else.
