"Kiddo has helped me tremendously. Before Kiddo, I struggled finding someone skilled and who fits in with my busy schedule. Kiddo fits in with my needs and has helped by being accommodating to the needs and busy life I live with my kids.

Sarah, the support worker, is professional, kind, caring, trustworthy, and empathic to my struggles. Sarah has helped my 4-year-old son, Will, with his areas of delay. She has helped develop his fine and gross motor skills and provided one-on-one support at his kinder.

Sarah has seen Will weekly for the last two months and keeps me updated and communicates how he is going. Will and I are happy, as he has consistency and Sarah gets to see him grow and Will enjoys seeing Sarah at every session. I am a proud parent knowing I am helping him achieve his learning milestones and his accomplishments. Sarah has become a familiar face and someone he knows and trusts.

Thanks to Kiddo, I can rest easy knowing I am helping my son and that he is in good hands with his learning developments. Thank you Kiddo, you're a true lifesaver :)" – A grateful parent
