I would highly recommend Kate to anyone in the area looking for a home-from-home setting with a kind, child-focused carer. My toddler has been attending Kate's setting for 6 months and she will be sad to go when she starts school in September. Kate has really helped my little one settle, and she enjoys spending time in the home with her lovely family. My little one especially loves her dogs, and gets to go out every day on adventures. It's been a God-send to have Kate on my doorstep. I can't review food as all kids take a packed lunch. But can say that my tot has enjoyed eating her lunch and snacks with the other children. Sometimes they have picnics.

My little one has been with Kate since he was 1yr old and will be continuing with her until he begins school next year. I cannot put into words how amazing she has been with him and more importantly with me!! Sorting me out with childcare when work hours have shifted, helping with pre-school information and arrangements, dropping off and picking up in places a little more convenient on a particular day. She is wonderful with our son who absolutely adores her and goes willingly with her each morning. She keeps him entertained and stimulated and he enjoys going to the baby groups with her and the other children she has. Kate has accommodated out parenting choices without question and always been helpful with advice when I have struggled with the 'terrible twos' or threenage' periods! My son behaves the same way with Kate as he does at home so I know that he's totally comfortable and happy with her and her setting.

This lady is absolutely wonderful and I would recommend her to any parent looking for someone to look after their whole world (this is how it felt for me). Thank you so much Kate for all that you've done!!

Katie provided us with day-long babysitting for our two-year-old, while we were staying in the region or a long weekend.

She was very flexible and accommodating, and also gave us a lot of confidence by coming and visiting in advance, to get to know us and make sure we had everything that would be needed.

Our confidence allows us to have a great relaxing day out, knowing our son was being well cared for.

Kate is a fantastic childminder. My daughter loves Kate days and always comes home happy but tired. She has been going to Kate since she was 10 months and is now 2 so has been with Kate through different sleep patterns, not sleeping in anything but a buggy and her current dairy allergy. Kate has always been flexible and supportive and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder.
