We can't say enough about Kellie and Matt - we contacted them with a very unique childcare situation and from the start, they were so helpful and kind. 

We found Kellie's approach professional and welcoming with an attention to detail that we found profoundly reassuring. Over several emails and phone calls, Kellie made a beautiful impression taking time to find out more about our children and our family. 

Our boys absolutely loved their time together and they were comfortable straight away. I would recommend Butterfly Childcare to anyone looking for a caring environment for their child. Thank you

Kellie has been caring for Monty since January this year. We have been really impressed by Kellie and Monty is a very happy little boy in her care.

Monty has an elder brother and we have had experience of using both a childminder and nursery. When choosing childcare for Monty, we preferred the option of a childminder as this feels more closely related to the home setting; we wanted Monty to get plenty of fresh air and be in a family environment and he has definitely had this experience with Kellie.

Monty is taken out most days to a wide variety of places such as the wildlife park, Coggs Farm, Blenheim Palace, parks and the Library as well as playing in the garden and taking part in crafts at Kellie’s home. In addition to this, Kellie supplies a wide variety of homemade healthy food which Monty very much enjoys!

As we sometimes travel for work, the use of the Babydays site, allows us to be completely up to date on Monty’s day, where he has been, what he has eaten and how much sleep he has had. It is so reassuring to see he has had such a good time and there is nothing better after a stressful day, than to see the beautiful photos of Monty and the other children in Kellie’s care having so much fun together.

Kellie is also great at keeping us very up to date on his progress and ensures the children have large range of toys and books to keep them occupied, developing their key skills and language.

Furthermore, when we collect Monty at the end of the day, he is always clean and has a fresh nappy. It feels like Kellie cares for him like he is one of her own children.

I would not think twice about recommending Kellie; her calm manner has been such a positive influence on Monty, it feels like he fits in as part of her family. It makes going to work so much easier, knowing he is so well looked after.

She feeds our little girl very healthy and tasty food, addy enjoys kellie's food more then what we cook for her. 
If you what professional, fun and 100% reliable childcare you need to contact Kellie.

Kellie is a warm and gentle child minder and my Son Tye who is now 6 months old i feel is well looked after and cared for without any doubts. Kellie also looks after my Daughter Seren who is 7 after school a few days a week and Seren enjoys going to Kellie's on a weekly basis and over the summer holidays. 

I hear of all sorts of trips they go on and Kellie plans lots of activities which can involve different age groups. 

I would 100% recommend Kellie to any parent looking for a reliable and caring childminder for their children.

I would recommend

Kellie looks after my little boy for 3 hours a week and he will be 2 in Aug. Even though he is only there for 3 hours she still manages to find exciting new things for him and when we arrive he walks into her house with no encouragement and a big smile. I feel happy and confident leaving him with Kellie.

Highly recommended

Can't recommend Kellie enough - my son really enjoys going to "Kellie's House", always has fun and can't stop talking about the things they do.
Kellie also looks after my school age daughter during the school holidays - she always asks if it "is a school holiday tomorrow and can I go to Kellie's house?".
My daughter has Coeliac disease and Kellie is very understanding about dietary requirements and making sure that my daughter doesn't feel left out.

I contacted Kellie for child care as needed one day over half Term. My two children & I met with her a week before & immediately 

We all felt very welcomed by Kellie, & most importantly both my children
Seemed very comfortable with Kellie & her home.

On the day the children settled very quickly & when I collected
Them they wanted to show me their drawings & chatted all the way home about their day.
I would highly recommend Kellie & would most defiantly use her child care

Highly recommend, a fantastic childminder                                                                                                       

We have been very impressed with the childcare provided by Kellie and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, caring and consistent childminder. Our daughter has been extremely happy during the time she has spent with Kellie and the other children. She runs into the house every morning when dropped off and always comes home very happy.

Every day is full of fun, varied and stimulating activities. They have been on many trips out to the local parks, children's centre, library, Cogges, Blenheim Palace and the Wildlife park, just to name a few. Our daughter has been able to develop her speech and social skills whilst under Kellie's care. We would definitely choose Kellie again in the future.

Highly recommend

It is always daunting choosing a child minder and imagining someone else looking after your little one, but as soon as I met Kellie I knew everything would be ok. And I was right! My son loves going to Kellie's and is always happy and excited as we approach her house in the mornings. It makes it so much easier doing the drop off in the morning knowing that he is happy and he always gets a big hug when we arrive! She takes him on trips to the farm parks, playground, feeding the ducks, play centres as well as lots of other things and I always get a summary of what he's been up to from the Baby Days website and photos of his day. I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend Butterfly Child Care to anyone.

Kellie is fantastic with our son Noah, he loves going to her house each day and its brilliant to see the connection he has with her after only a few months. He also loves interacting with the other children.

We always look forward to reading his diary on the baby days system, they get up to so many different things. 
Kellie makes us feel comfortable and secure - just want you need from a childminder!

Very Reliable!

Kellie has been picking up our 4 year old from Edith Moorhouse School 3 days a week since the start of the school year. She provides our son with a fun and caring environment, and she's incredibly reliable. We'd be lost without her!
