My husband and I are so thankful for Kate...!! The initial thought of having someone else look after our baby was, to say the least, nerve wracking, but from the first moment we met her at interview there was something about Kate that put us immediately at ease. She is naturally approachable, kind and extremely organised...!! Our little boy, Sam (now 10 months old) adores her and her family - she has 3 lovely children of her own - who are all a testament to her parenting skills!! - and Sam is treated as one of the family. He has a big smile on his face when I drop him off and is the most chilled baby when I pick him up....so I know he's had a stimulating and enjoyable time in Kate's care! My husband and I have rather hectic work schedules, but Kate accommodates us fantastically. Knowing that your child is
being looked after by someone he loves and is happy with takes away the stress and anxiety (and, yes, guilt!) of being a working parent. So THANK YOU Kate....for being there for us and our baby boy :) We Highly recommend Kate as a childminder x
