“We honestly couldn’t be happier. My child's carer, Dawn, is A-MA-ZING. My child took to her from the first second she met her and has never looked back. She has three other lovely girls in her care ranging from 1.5 to four years. My child loves pottering away and exploring in a calm, supportive, loving environment. Dawn lives just around the corner from us and has excellent facilities. She’s understanding and flexible and we’re very grateful to have found her. The programme tutor Michelle and the office ladies have all been equally as supportive and made everything seamless for us. So we’re very happy!

Home-based care is perfect for me while my daughter is so small. I love that she is in a nurturing, warm and homely environment but also gets the opportunities to be out and about socialising with other babies and toddlers in the playgroups.
My Educator Kylie was amazing in the first few weeks. I was very emotional dropping my baby off so she continued to send pictures of my daughter playing and looking so happy which kept my mind at ease. I LOVE this about Kylie, the constant updates and the amazing journal she keeps of all the kids, I love that I know exactly what my daughter has done all day, how happy or sad she was, what she ate and what she did.
My daughter just fits right in and has been happy and smiley from day dot. I could tell by my daughter's reaction on the first day that I had the right place. I also really love the extras offered - playgroups, music groups etc.
I like that my daughter gets cuddles and gets to know Kylie on a level she wouldn't have at a large centre. She is not just another number, and Kylie really does treat her like one of her own.
