My daughter has been with Kathleen for about a month now. I was very scared of putting her into childcare as she is a very shy and isolated child. Since being with Kathleen there is an improvement in her confidence and she has become very independent. I feel that Kathleen goes the extra mile, shows love and has a genuine interest in my child's wellbeing and education. It is like a home away from home. She communicates my child's progress regularly. Very happy with her and would recommend her to anyone.

My daughter Mya has been with Kathleen for just over a year now and I have to say that it was one of the best decisions that I made. Not only do I feel relaxed that Mya is well taken care of but she also enjoys her time with Kathleen. She is never short of story's to tell about different activities she has done, from arts and crafts to butterfly catching, pumpkin picking or the good old fashioned park. Although the children have fun together, Kathleen incorporates learning and development too and Mya has definitely excelled in writing and reading at the age of 4. The children are also taught the understanding of hygiene and manners, all of which you couldn't ask more for.
I would definately recommend Wee Care to any parent looking for the home away from home love and care that is displayed in all aspects of Kathleen care. Her home if full of toys and books and the great dolls house which Mya absolutely loves.
If I have any more children Kathleen is my first choice.

I would highly recommend this Childminder! The Childminder herself is a warm and caring and highly passionate about her job. She has looked after both my daughters, and I can honestly they enjoyed every moment of being in the nurturing environment that she has created. She has transformed her living room into a bright, and homely 'learning' place. I love the 'library' she has created for her children. There is plenty to do here. The children bring home arts n crafts and bright and imaginative drawings. All festivals and special occasions are celebrated! Just have to add that she also teaches them to respect everyone and also that manners are highly important. Thank you Wee care x

My son has been with Kathleen now for the past 6 month and as a first time Mum I was hugely apprehensive about having Oliver be in childcare as I returned to work full time. However, my worries were quashed upon meeting Kathleen and seeing how well she responded to Oliver and he to her. Her home is set out in the most child friendly manner I have ever seen and there is an abundance of toys and activities present – books, blocks, paints, a trampoline; just to mention a few. Kathleen also takes Oliver on walks to the park, helped him overcome his nervous disposition in regards to the slide and takes him on walks through the wood with the family dog Paddy (toy Poodle). To help Oliver socialise, Kathleen also takes him to weekly playgroups and Starlets. I was originally worried that by having Oliver in childcare, my routines and ways of helping him develop could be contradicted, however Kathleen makes sure to take all of these into account and by having such consistency, he has come on leaps and bounds and is developing at such a fast rate.

It is abundantly clear to anyone who spends a second in Kathleen and the children’s presence that child minding is not a job for her, but a vocation which she truly loves. She will treat your child like her own and teach them good manners, cleanliness, how to socialise, have fun and be independent – everything that you do for the child yourself.
