We have been with Dorrie for 3.5 years now. I looked into family daycare after visiting some childcare centres and feeling sick about leaving my baby in a big scary environment like that! Dorrie immediately made my 10 month old at home, she is as warm and loving as what you expect from your child’s grandparents. Nothing phases her or is too much trouble. Dorrie Cooks up fresh soup or pasta for this kids every day and it is usually the only veggies and meat my kids eat all week as they won’t eat it for me! The whole environment is faultless- the whole family welcomes and loves the kids, the house is spotless and the backyard perfect We have been so lucky to have Dorrie caring for our babies :o)
I took my first son to Dorrie at the age of seven months. I had to go back to work at this time and I was feeling terrible about leaving him at such a young age. On my first day, I cried the whole way there! Once we arrived, Dorrie gave me an instant feeling of relief and comfort. Jack reached out for her and there was no turning back! He soon became part of the Cookson family! As I was new to feeding a baby solids, I was concerned about what he would eat at Dorries. That was soon put to rest when I saw the big pot of homemade veggie risotto on the stove. That quickly became Jacks favourite meal and Dorrie would make it specially if he asked her! Dorrie always makes sure that the children have different toys to play with and a variety of activities for them to do. They are never bored at Dorries house!! Another thing I was worried about was Jacks afternoon sleep. I was having trouble getting him to go down on his own. I was rocking him to sleep still at seven months! Dorrie soon had that problem solved for me. She taught jack how to settle in the cot without me. I couldn't believe it and was very grateful that I could do the same at home with no problem!! Once it was time for my second child to begin care at Dorries, I didn't have any concerns at all. My daughter Coco was welcomed the same way and had no problems settling in. Dorrie is firm but at the same time fair. She is very nurturing and loving and makes the children feel comfortable and safe. I can't thank Dorrie enough!
