Kate has been a wonderful childminder to my daughter, from 10 months old to 2 years. Over the past 18 months she has undoubtedly provided an extremely warm, loving, caring and safe family environment - very much home from home, with varied activities on a daily basis, which has allowed me to return to work worry-free. At no point have i ever been concerned for her happiness or welfare during Kates care. Its also been very touching to see Kate and her family welcome my daughter into their family and getting to know her so well, almost like an extra sibling.
Similarly Kate has personally nurtured my daughters development, taking the time to show her how to use a pen, crayon, paints as well as teaching her to brush her teeth well, use cutlery and in general to eat at the table with the rest of the family. Kate has been particularly creative with painting, crafty play and singing so much so that she very much enjoys these activities on a regular basis. Kate runs Songs & Stories classes weekly and so my daughter is subsequently very animated about nursery rhymes. The garden in the spring and summer has been such a great safe play area where the chidren climb, play on the trampoline and generally get some good exercise. In the winter or wet days Kate was very diligent in taking the children to play gyms / soft play / play groups too. We have been very happy to have found Kate and feel sad the time has come to an end.
I would thoroughly recommend Kate as a childminder and would be happy to provide a verbal reference to anyone looking to place their children with her.
I knew within five minutes of meeting Kate that she was the one I could trust to look after my girls. She was instantly kind, welcoming and made both myself and the girls feel at home and at ease. She has qualifications and experience in abundance and this showed in the way my children couldn't wait to go to her house in the morning and didn't want to go home again at the end of the day!!
Kate has two lovely boys of her own, both of whom are well mannered and a delight to be around. They got on like a house on fire with my two and I was frequently told tales of Kate's youngest son keeping an eye on my youngest and looking after her at playgroups. He was very protective of her, and I know that my daughter adored him.
Kate's house is completely geared for childcare - it is large and safe with plenty of space to play. The children had access to a swimming pool in the summer months, a trampoline and a multitude of toys and activities in the house. As well as this they went on trips to a pet centre, the local leisure centre where Kate also runs a children's play session, and visits to local parks and playgrounds.
My eldest daughter is currently going through the diagnosis process for ADD. She has been showing very early signs on having ADD, although it is as yet unconfirmed. This didn't phase Kate in the slightest, and she worked with my daughter and encouraged her better behaviour and ability to concentrate on a task.
I can't rate Kate highly enough for the work she has done with my children in looking after them and providing a safe environment for them to develop and grow outside our home. She is a wonderful, kind and very understanding lady who I completely recommend to anyone looking for childcare.
