Karen has looked after my little girl for the last 18 months, and we could not be happier!! My daughter loves Kaz and her husband Robbie, she calls them Nanny and Grandad! I really struggled going back to work after having my little girl and I really don’t think I could have done it without Kaz! Knowing that my little girl was safe, happy and well looked after made it that bit easier!
My daughter has learnt so much since being with Kaz, the children are always occupied with fun activities, and trips out! I love that it’s like a home from home environment, Kaz helped us with potty training, she has taught my daughter to get dressed, put her socks on etc, she knows her ABC can count to 20, knows lots of songs/nursery rhymes!!!
My daughter is always well fed, and enjoys her meal times with her friends!
Couldn’t Thank Kaz and Robbie enough for all their hard work! They have made my life so much easier, they’re always flexible and ammeenable! I recommend them to anyone!

Karen and Robbie have been looking after my daughter for 61/2 years and I couldn't be more happy with the home from home service that I've always received. They are a truly kind and caring couple who do everything possible to make sure that my daughter is happy, safe and feels cared for in my absence as a parent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anybody that's looking for that special place for their child/ren who needs it.
Karen is like my daughters 'other mum', which to me is very comforting to see that caring bond that they have come to have during their time together.

I highly recommend Kaz and here is my reasons why.....like every parent we worry about going back to work after having a baby and my son has been attending Kaz’s child minding for 4 years now and I have not worried once. Kaz allowed me and my son to adjust by going a few hours a day until we were both ready for him to go full time. Throughout the last 4 years my son has grown to love Kaz and her family and calls them nanny and grandad. Both Kaz and Robbie are loving, caring and has my son’s best interest at heart. Kaz keeps a diary of all the activities they do and my son gets to go to play group, the beach, park and pick up the other children from school which has helped him to adjust to school life himself in recent weeks. Nothing is to much bother for Kaz and she is always willing to be flexible. Kaz and the other children have helped my son develop into a funny, loving little boy (every parents dream). Kaz attends all the first aid courses etc to keep her training up to date and always willing to share learning activities that she comes across with me and my son. Kaz has a lovely routine with the children and always encourages them in different core skills and I am most appreciative of the hard work that Kaz does so us parents can go to work and know they are in a safe environment. Kaz is certainly a hard working child minder and I wouldn’t have my son going anywhere else. When I say Runcorn’s number 1 childminder that is because I really mean she is the best Childminder you will ever be able to find.
