Ms D - 2020

I think your setting is simply brilliant. The children are all happy and confident. They are given lots of opportunities to learn and try new things and you can see how much you care for them all. Makes my life easier knowing .... is well looked after and content.

Mrs B - 2019

Making the decision to return to work was the hardest one we have made, but we honestly could not be more satisfied with the love, care and stimulation our daughter receives. It makes it much easier being able to leave her at the door, already knowing that she is going to have a wonderful day. Thank you!

S - June 2018

'I like going to Kate's as I get to see my friends, eat yummy food, see Kate, do lovely things and help make things.'

Mrs S - July 2017

I am more than happy with the setting.  J & T are both very happy.  J has learnt so much in the past year and has made many friends.  This time last year J had very little vocabulary and now he can talk in sentences, he can also count and recognises many colours.  J has always been happy and often talks about what he has done at Kate's and talks about his friends.

F - May 2016

'I like playing cars.   I like going in the garden and to the park.  I like playing football and basketball, it's my favourite game.  You are good, a monkey because you are cheeky and kind!!'

‘I cannot praise Kate enough.  She is friendly approachable, reliable and Most of all has a fantastic rapport with all of the children.  If it were not for moving schools we would have continued with Kate forever!’

Mrs P – Nov 2013

‘From a parents point of view, you are a very warm, welcoming, confident and organised person.  Your setting is child friendly, hazard free and a great place for little people to learn, discover and grow.’
