"Katy has cared for our son one day a week for 2 years. We were extremely apprehensive about our son being in another person’s care as he is autistic and when Katy met him he had very little vocabulary. However, at our first meeting with Katy she put us at ease. She explained her previous experience, qualifications and more importantly her motivation for working with children with special needs.

To us, Katy has always demonstrated an exemplary approach to caring for our child. She is extremely organised and efficient with regards to time keeping. We were particularly impressed with the way she kept us up to date with real time texts when our son was in her care. This is just one of the many examples which highlight Katy’s genuine fondness for the children in her care.

There is no doubt that we were extremely lucky to find a childminder who takes such a professional approach to her work. To us, however, it is the small things that she did, such as getting genuinely excited when she heard our son say a new word, this made us feel very secure about placing our son in her care. Katy is a very kind, approachable and sensitive person and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Please do not hesitate to contact us through her if you want more information."

"Dear Katy,

I would like to thank you very much for the excellent work you have done with ++++ and her family.

As you know, she has very complex needs and can be very challenging to support. The family were also in a very vulnerable and difficult position when you began your intervention. The support you were able to so professionally offer them has been superb and I know was highly valued by the family.

Thank you

Yours sincerely
