I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Kelly and her husband Steve have made such a positive impact on my child over the last 2 years. As a single mom, it is such a blessing to know my child is in the hands of someone who cares so deeply about the children in her "Nest". Kelly upholds and instills great manners and life skills, without being overly restrictive.

Kelly always provides nutritious and quality food options, plenty of stimulating play time and activities, excursions outdoors and the house is kept very clean and tidy. I'm so lucky to have come across Kelly and her in home daycare! 10 out of 10 would always, highly, recommend!
