Kelly has looked after my 16 month old son for the past 4 months and I have been delighted with the wonderful service she provides, which in my opinion, is outstanding. I spent a lot of time deciding on the right childminder for my little boy and feel that I couldn’t have made a better decision. Kelly’s home has a very warm and welcoming feel, is filled with lovely toys and resources and ______ loves going to her - often protesting when I tell him it’s time to come home as he doesn’t want to leave! Kelly has a friendly, professional approach and is extremely organised. She provides lots of exciting activities and experiences, such as attending local groups, visiting places in the local community such as the park, library and post office, painting, cooking and lots more! ______’s needs are always well met and I could not recommend Kelly’s Childminding Services highly enough.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to feedback on your childminding and babysitting services.
I was introduced to Kelly through Northamptonshire Childminding Service. She came to visit my boys in their own home to get to know them before our first session.
She is always punctual and professional; she quickly got to know my children and their two very different personalities.
One of my children is severely disabled and cannot talk, walk, sit or stand. Kelly quickly learnt to communicate with him using choices. She is sure to ask him frequently what he would like, and sings to him at bedtime.
My other child is potty training and she has given me some great support and advice and is always positive and encouraging, whilst ensuring boundaries are maintained.
Kelly has 2 little ones of her own so has both the practical experience and professional qualifications to make a fantastic childminder.
Kelly has been kind enough to help out at short notice and to drop off and collect my child from preschool. She always provides a clear description of what he has been doing during his stay, and can provide healthy, home-cooked meals for a small extra charge.
I regularly trust Kelly with my two most precious ‘belongings’ and would be happy to recommend her to anyone!

Our 5 year old son suffers with ASD, Kelly took the time to get to know us and understand his specific characteristics, going to great efforts to accommodate them. As a result, he warmed to Kelly quickly and without fuss. We're now able to enjoy an evening out knowing both our boys are in safe hands and that we no longer have to be over reliant on extended family.

Kelly has looked after my son since the summer holidays and has gone out of her way to accommodate when I have come unstuck outside her normal hours of work. Her love of childcare work is demonstrable. Kelly's childminding service is professional, reliable and friendly and offers above and beyond the scope of childminding from the friendliness and courtesy of the family to the understanding and application of my childs development needs. Kelly and her family are friendly and approachable and at minimum will always pop their heads around the door to say hello. I have no problems recommending Kelly's childminding service for quality of care.

My son has been attending Kelly's Childminding Services since May 2012. Kelly has been flexible and accommodating. My son gets excited when we pull up outside Kelly's house and appears very relaxed when I collect him. On the days that my son cries when I leave, Kelly takes the time to contact me to let me know he has stopped crying and is off busy engaged in a fun activity. Kelly listens to my requests in regards to my son and gives me feedback on his day. I get to look at his personal development profile which Kelly fills in, in great detail giving me a full insight on activities they have been doing and how well he has engaged in them. I feel happy and confident leaving my son in Kelly's care and would highly recommend her to anyone.

I located Kelly's Childminding Services from recommendation from my child's school. I had never used a minder previous and was unfamiliar with the process and regulations within the profession. On an initial meeting, Kelly was extremely helpful, giving me bundles of information, options and variety to fulfil my requirements. Kelly was so organised. I was impressed with her schedules, agendas and flexibility, administration and book keeping. Kelly is second to none and is always thinking ahead: Offering online invoicing and personal development files, showing month in advance meal plans and catering for allergies, illness and disabilities. Kelly is available to communicate and document daily reports amongst having all the relevant credentials of insurance and certifications on hand too. Kelly has given me confidence that my child is in safe, alert and friendly care. I signed up to take the service full time. Now two terms in, my child is extremely happy, as am I, with offered meals and adaptive personal care, Kelly has exceeded any expectation I could of expected. Kelly goes over and beyond the call of duty with so many extras such as surprises for the children, days out, Santa visits etc. Kelly really puts in 100% to ensure the time spent in her care is fun, engaging and happy in a family environment. The house is child friendly, clean and home from home with safety being a priority. I go to work content my child is in great hands and Kelly works with me on actions I would like my child to be achieving. I strongly recommend anyone who is looking to source childminder to arrange a meeting with Kelly. I was extremely lucky to find this service. 10/10.

To have someone like Kelly has made a huge difference to our ability and willingness to be able to leave our children. Our eldest had Down's syndrome and our youngest was only about 6 months when we first met Kelly. With her experience and training we felt confident that she could manage any potential situation that may arise. Toileting our son and dealing with coughing that led to vomiting have been things she's taken in her stride. I would recommend Kelly to anyone but in particular anyone who has a child with additional needs.

Kelly has looked after my son since he was 10 months old, he is now 16 months and I am more than happy with the service that she provides. Kelly will always go above and beyond to do anything to help. He loves going in the mornings and seeing the other children. Before Kelly started looking after him we went to her house to meet her and for my son to get used to the new surroundings which really helped him settle. I was very nervous about leaving him and Kelly would always send me a message in the morning to say he was ok and what they had been doing which really helped. She is always available to speak to if I am worried about anything and I know she will call me if there is any problems. Kelly is always doing something with the children taking them out, baking, painting, singing or playing with them. I have noticed that my son has developed very quickly in his walking, talking and communicating through being with other children and being at Kelly's. She is very reliable, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend her as a childminder.
