O is for outings and outstanding!

We are really happy we picked Porse In home care for our son. Sam went into care full time at 5 months old which we thought was just too young for full on day cares, whereas in home care with Porse allowed him to be in a familiar home environment with just a few others to get to know.

Care with Louisa has been outstanding. Every morning Louisa and the crew go for an outing somewhere fun and exciting, the Botanical gardens, Te Papa, the Zoo, Music group and Capital E are some favourites. But Louisa is constantly changing it up with cable cars, train trips, local shows, helicopters (they even got to sit inside them!), fire stations to see the trucks, Observatory; you name it and they have probably done it. Sam gains so much from these outings in building confidence and understanding the world around him. The web site that Louisa maintains every day is very special as well. I’m able to log on in the afternoon and see pictures and a story about what they have gotten up to that day. This is also really great in keeping the overseas grandparents up to date with what their grandson is up to, they love the daily pictures and stories. On top of all that, Louisa has a super fun and safe dedicated playroom in her house where the kids get up to all sorts of games, reading, arts and crafts, even cooking! Louisa was such a great find, can not recommend her highly enough!
