"I was very worried about returning to work and whether E would settle ok. E always comes back with a big smile and Cally always texts me updates and pictures of her enjoying the many different activities. It helps me to relax back into my role at work knowing she is happy and well looked after. Cally has been very careful to understand what is important to us and E and has been very flexible to incorporate this in her care of E, Many Thanks Cally!."
"I would like to thank you for your help and professionalism over the last couple of years. You have often gone above and beyond, especially when I have run late and been very flexible. Thank you also to Graham, Harvey and Freya for welcoming J into your home."
"Cally has been looking after our son, Noah (11 months) for 4 days a week since November. We have been very happy with the care provided, and have felt Noah has been treated as part of the family and looked after incredibly well. In the time he has been with Cally he has gained enormous confidence, and has come on significantly from a developmental point of view. Cally completes diary entries which keeps us in the loop - it is great to hear how each individual day has gone and read what they have been getting up to. Cally allows for plenty of free play within the setting, but also takes Noah and the other children out to local groups, events and outings. Cally is very thorough and thoughtful, and works with you to constantly monitor your little one's experience while they are with her - asking questions regarding sleep, behaviour etc. Noah has formed a phenomenal bond with Cally, which is especially impressive as when he started with her he was going through significant separation anxiety, which was normal at that age. Within a week or so of being at the setting Noah had settled in and was delighted to see Cally, and was generally gaining confidence in other situations where he would have normally got separation anxiety. It is so reassuring to go to work and not worry, knowing he is in great hands. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Cally to anyone."
"The environment that Cally provides for my children is safe and fun and my children enjoy going. She enables them to learn through play and exposes them to world through themed play such as Chinese new year, St Davids Day and many more. I am truly comfortable with Cally's setting and I know that lines of communication are always open. I especially liked this when my children were new to the setting and she would provide me with photos and updates through out the day to show how much fun they were having and set my mind at ease. Thank you for a wonderful setting for the children."
