I can’t reccommend Kimberley, Kinza and Jodie enough! When I first started looking at childcare I was a Mum to a 9month old, I viewed nursery after nursery and never felt they were right for us. I came on this website wondering whether I should decline the job offer I had worked so hard for because I worried my son wouldn’t settle, then I found Kimberley and my whole world changed. My clingy, crying mummy’s boy found new confidence, independence and didn’t once cry when I left! My son not only asks to go to Kimberley’s every Sat, his speech, manners and emotional intelligence is outstanding and as much as I’d like to think it was my parenting, I know a lot of this stems from Kimberley and the girls. He has been with the team since he was a baby and from the moment I walked in I knew Kimberley and the team would love him the same way I do. They’re his 2nd Mums and every day I’m reassured he’s happy. You’re all doing amazing for the kids. Would HIGHLY recommend

My 2 year old son absolutely loves going to Kimberely's. He is so happy when he dropped off in the morning and bounces in to play with his friends. Me and my husband are so impressed with the care that Kimberely and Kinza give. The children are involved in so many activities and are always stimulated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kimberely. She clearly loves the children she looks after and from a practical point of view she is able to be flexible which helps immensely as I am a shift worker.

This is the first time I have had to use childcare outside of my family and choosing Kimberley was the best decision we ever made! I knew within 5 minuts of meeting her that my 1 year old felt comfortable in the house. She has now been there over a year and has come on leaps and bounds. She absolutely loves Kimberley, her assistant Kinza and all the family. Not only is Kimberley great for my daughter she is always there to give me support and advice with situations O didnt face with my first daughter. You will never regret choosing Kimberley to take care of your children!

I have never used a childminder before so I was quite worried about leaving my 6 month old for the first time after returning to work. Kimberley and Kinza were the best decision I made. They do so much for the children they look after and I cannot thank them enough. Isabelle loves them both and really enjoys her time there. I can see that Kimberley puts a lot of thought and effort into everything she does for the children she looks after. I would not use anyone else. Thanks ladies you are the best x

After my maternity leave had finished I was very worried about leaving my child with someone else. Kimberley came highly recommended by my friends and also on social media. Now when my child comes home they are extremely happy and excited to tell me what they have done that day and is always asking "when can we go back to kimberleys again?".
