Kim looks after my two little ones full time and I can honestly say from day one they have adored her and on a Monday morning they are very excited to be going to "Kimmies" to play, I have never had tears when dropping them off if anything some days I get them when i'm picking them up as they don't want to leave the fun. They honestly enjoy being around her and nothing is too much trouble for her (",)
The children love her playroom as she regularly changes all the toys around so there is always something new to play with and they are always out and about visiting parks or having play dates with other childminders by the time its home time they are normally so worn out they are ready for bed haha...
Its so lovely to be able to be at work each day without having to worry about them and checking my phone every 5 minutes x

My children have been looked after by Kim for over two years now and my kids love her!
She is so friendly and always happy.
Kim is very accommodating and very professional. She is organised and keeps everything in order (receipts, contact forms, contracts, policies, etc) and she is very experienced and up to date with all the right training all of which shows how passionate she is about all the children she looks after.
Kim's home is wonderful for the children with lots to keep them entertained and lovely days out in the holidays to parks, play places, cinema, bowling etc.
Whenever my daughter sees Kim in the playground at school she will run over to her with her arms open for a big hug.
It is so important to me that i have a childminder who i can trust implicitly and that my children like their childminder and they love Kim!
She is so caring, kind and warm hearted - there is no one better!

Kim is experienced, proffesional and a wonderful childminder, who provides a lovely environment for the children, with a rotation of toys and activities to keep them entertained. The children enjoy being with Kim, she is a kind caring women who I would highly recommend.
