Highly recommend Kirsty to anyone. My little boy attended her setting two full days a week and she had helped him come on leaps and bounds. He absolutely loved going! Never looked black to see if I was there or not when leaving him off in he morning. Kirsty becomes more of a friend and goes above and beyond her call of duty! Thanks again.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty to anyone looking for a wonderful, kind, thoughtful and conscientious childminder.
Kirsty’s home is very clean and so warm and welcoming and my son has access to lots of toys and books that stimulate him and help him to learn through play and having fun. He comes home quite regularly with pictures and things he has made/baked especially for special occasions. He also enjoys normal family life in Kirsty’s home and loves pottering in the garden.

As other reviewers have mentioned Kirsty has been a lifeline to us. Kirsty looked after both our children for nearly 5 years up until recently (they are now at school). Kirsty loves and is loved by both our children and they look back with great fondness. Kirsty has just the right balance of love and "tough love" as she makes children develop age appropriate skills and behaviour.

For parents she has lots of great sage advice which comes from her years of experience.....an absolute lifeline especially as our personal circumstances meant we had no immediate family near to us.

We consider ourselves so lucky to have had Kirsty as childminder to both our children.

After visiting several childminders and nurseries for my eldest son (now 5) I hadn't quite found what I considered we were looking for. However after my initial visit to Kirsty's home, I knew that she was the one that I wanted to care for my son.

The environment felt like 'home from home' and I love how the children are able to use all of the main living areas. Kirsty has a wealth of wonderful resources to interest the children including an amazing garden (my boys love the outdoors!).

She is incredibly reliable and flexible and I don't know what we do without her! She now cares for both of our sons and they have always been very settled and happy. Kirsty is incredibly nurturing and knows all of the children in her care inside out. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found her!

Kirsty has been our life line. She took on our son at 10 months old part time and we have never looked back. Her care is second to none and it is just perfect for us. Kirsty is the most honest, caring, nurturing and supportive ‘mother substitute’ I have come across and being in the early years profession myself I’ve known a few.

Kirsty has guided us through so many stages of ours sons life, the integration of our family and helped us in some serious difficult times. I could not praise her anymore. She has become part of our family and I will never regret my decision for her to take my place bringing up my little boy, such an important thing to do. I will be forever grafeful for the special bond she has with my little boy. I dread the day I ‘officially’ no longer need Kirsty’s help!
