We've engaged Kate now for nearly 6 months now on an ad hoc basis for childminding. Totally professional. Right from the start Kate filled us with a great deal of confidence as we are babysitting first-timers and we have twin babies and a 3 year old. Kate took the time to familiarise herself with the house and the children which was really nice. She's pretty unflappable and the whole house feels calmer when she is around. Even when one of the twins was having trouble sleeping she takes it in her stride. We have alot of confidence in her and will continue to use Kate going forward.

Needed a nanny for my first night out after being a mummy so I found and contacted Katie. She was great. Arrived on time, very friendly and she gave updates and sent a cute picture whilst I was out so I had peace of mind. Once I returned, gave another update as to how baby was and everything was fine.

Kate has been invaluable during the very long school holidays to provide care for my daughter so I’ve been able to work. At the start of the holidays my daughter was bored at home whilst I was working on my laptop. Now that Kate comes she’s painting, sticking, going to the park, playing games and having fun whilst I work. I’d have really struggled through the holidays without Kates help and we hope she’ll keep coming through the next set of holidays too

We have sent our son to Kate since he was just over a year old, first on an ad hoc basis and then more regularly as I returned to work. I know he is very happy in Kate's setting and often comes home to tell us all about the activities and outings he had at 'Katie's house'.

Kate prepares activities and trips outdoors to the park, library, and local playgroups, and our son really enjoys going out to explore. Kate has a beautiful home and a wonderful setting which is very safe and allows the children to explore during play.

I would recommend Kate without any hesitation.

I have used gigglebugs on an ad hoc basis since I went back to work in October. I will continue using Kate for as long as I have to work! My daughter has settled in amazingly well and thoroughly enjoys her time there with Kate and the other children. It's awful having to leave her to go to work, but at least I am comforted in the fact Ruby loves it there and she holds her arms out for Kate when we arrive, and waves me goodbye! Kate gives us a daily diary of what Ruby has been up to, such as playtime, nap time, food, or rhyme time at the library, and we can write in it anything we want Kate to know too. If Ruby has been ill and I've been worried Kate is always at the end of the phone and keeps me well informed. If you are considering using Gigglebugs, I would recommend you go for it :-)
