Thank you to Karen for providing exceptional care for my son. He had been somewhere previous and just not settled so I was worried the same would happen in Karen’s care, but it was the totally opposite! After 2 weeks he had made some friends, was coming home with things he’d made and was no longer crying on drop off. As a first time parent leaving my son with someone new after a bad experience I felt very anxious and on edge, but Karen made me feel very at ease leaving him in her care. Having a partner who’s deployment is all over the place, Karen has been very accommodating when it’s come to helping me with the few extra hours here and there and is always willing to help when she is able to do so. Due to moving out of the area I am unfortunately having to take him out of her care and we as a family are devastated. I can’t recommend Karen enough and thank her for everything she’s done for us!

it has been a pleasure having your son here in our care and setting.he has grown in confidence and is a delightful,happy little boy.he will be missed,but I wish him all the best for the future.regards Karen.x

We have been with Karen for well over three years and unfortunately our time has come to move on (due to posting into to a new area).

My daughter always ran into Karen’s with a big smile on her face, she has always been made to feel welcome in Karen’s home.

My daughter has always been full time so Karen had played a huge part in her development from early years and setting the foundations of eduction in preparation for her transition to primary school next year. My little girl is now confident and more then ready for primary school thanks to Karen and all her support.

We will really miss Karen and will always be great full for the fantastic care she has given to our little girl. I would without a doubt recon Karen to anyone looking for childcare.

it has been a pleasure to have your daughter from a little baby to now.she has grown into a very confident little girl and will try anything new.im sure,as she ventures into her next chapter she will continue to thrive.i wish you all the best for the future. x

Mrs Karen Perry has been outstanding in caring for our son Oliver.

She has helped with his growth and development from the age of 1 to 2& ½ and we truly believe he wouldn’t be the boy he is today without her influence and vast experience.

He was walking at 11 months, speaking well from 14 months and potty trained at 26 months. Without Karen’s help, guidance & support I don’t think he would have achieved these milestones at the ages he did.

Oliver is always coming home with different creations and telling us about how much fun he’s had with his friends, whether its playing with robots or looking for wiggly worms in the garden.

As we are a serving couple, she’s always been flexible to help with our needs so we can support the Army. It’s with an extremely heavy heart we must leave. We have only left due to assignment.

She is a credit to her field, and I would highly recommend her services.

My daughter Millie has been with Karen for 2 years now, Millie has been with Karen since she was about 8 months old. Every morning she runs in, she comes home with drawings, cards, masks! Millie adores Karen, and clearly loves been with her.

I remember been so worried going back to work, I had never left Millie with anyone other then family or very close friends. Karen made the transition back to work so easy.

I would 110% recommend, Millie always arrives and leaves with a massive smile on her face.
