Bernie looked after both my children for many years. She is kind and extremely caring to the children in her care. The children loved going there and had lots of fun with the activities provided throughout the day and after school.I would have no hesitation in recommending her

Bernadette looked after my 2 children, aged 10 months & 4 years old for 3.5 years. She provided a 'home from home' environment for them where they were very happy and content. Bernadette did lots of arts & crafts with them and kept a daily log of activities and photos for me. She developed a close bond with the children, particularly my youngest who spent most of his time with her while the eldest was at school. If my work circumstances hadn't changed they would have remained in her care. I would have no hesitation recommending Berni.
