Kelly was wonderful, she even insisted on meeting me and my Son beforehand so he felt comfortable. What I liked was the space available for older children to relax and chill whilst the smaller children were happy playing. Kelly really has a lovely warm persona and would make any child feel comfortable and loved. She was always smiling every time she opened the door and was bubbly and always in control of the whole situation. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a stable home from home.
Our little girl has been with Kelly now for about 5 months and she loves it. Kelly has a lovely family,great facilities for the children, a great variety of toys and activities. Kelly is brilliant at teaching children the right way, manners etc. and all the children with her are well behaved and her lovely kids are great with my little girl.
Kelly is very organised, all activities are recorded during the day and we get written feedback after every visit. Kelly also keep pictures and development journey in a diary which is lovely to look back on and see our child's progress.
Regular text and photos keep your mind at rest and I can see my daughter is happy and is always having a great time.
Kelly is a bubbly,kind and caring person and a brilliant child minder and I would highly recommend her to anyone.x
We highly recommend Kelly. Our daughter spent over a year with her from around 2 years old and we were all extremely happy.
It's easy to see that Kelly has natural parental instinct along with all of the necessary training, this means that children and parents feel very comfortable with the childcare environment. We were of course nervous about leaving our daughter with a child minder but Kelly's responsible and caring approach soon made us forget that we had any worries.
Our little one loved going there and did lots of indoor and outdoor activities, being around other children of similar ages really made her self confidence grow. She still remembers her time at Kelly's and often talks about things that they did together.
My daughter has been going to Kelly part time for just over 2 months now. She was 13 months old when she started so was fully aware that she was been left and got tearful at times. Kelly is always there to comfort her and the tears would be gone in no time!
I have had lots of drawings to bring home and my daughter is always pointing at them so she certainly remembers doing them. She gets taken to lots of different places by Kelly and is coming on well with development and sounds!
My daughter always has a smile on her face when I go to pick her so that is proof enough that she has a fab time!
Kelly has lots of toys (in and out) and a great playroom, lots for the kids to do.
I look forward to seeing what she picks up next.
Would recommend fully. Thank you Kelly
My son started going to Kelly's when he was 11 months. After 2 days of settling in he has been there full time and we're all happy with the choice. He is treated like part of the family and it's a real home-to-home environment that we were looking for. Knowing he is happy has made going back to work a lot easier.
Kelly is very friendly and bubbly and makes the children feel welcome in her home. Has a lot of ideas what to do with the children and takes them out as much as she can.
The house itself is like a little nursery, there is plenty of activities for all the children and a great garden as well. Kelly is always looking for ways to make it even better.
Would highly recommend to any parent looking for a childminder.
