About Me

Hello, I'm Keri, I'm 38 and I'm married with 3 children including twins. I have a safe, warm and friendly home and would love to welcome your children. I have a good sized play room with everything a child needs to enjoy themselves and plenty of activities for them to take part in to help them with their learning and development. I have a good sized garden with a safe area for smaller children and a larger area for older ones to explore. All meals are freshly cooked to ensure your children are happy and healthy. I have a large kitchen area so the children can also enjoy some baking and a large table for drawing and painting.

I go to lots of different playgroups, indoor playcentres and parks (weather dependent) during the week. All meals are provided. Just let me know if your child has any special dietery needs.

My Experience

I have been childminding since Oct 2013.
Please read my reviews from previous and current parents.

My Qualifications

I have full paediatric first aid training. I have done Level 1 and Level 2 Safe Guarding children. I keep up to date with different childcare training to keep my knowledge up to date and refreshed. I do online courses on a regular basis and face to face courses when required.

My first Ofsted inspection took place in April 2014 and I was graded 'Good'.

My second Ofsted inspection took place in Jan 2018 and I was graded 'Good'.

My husband is registered as my assistant but only usually helps out on his day off if needed. He also has done paediatric first aid.

My Availability

My hours are:

7:30 till 6:00pm Monday to Thursday.

7:30 till 5:30pm on a Friday.

I have availability from Sept 2020 due to children leaving to go to nursery.

Message me if you are interested in a place at my setting.

I am unable to do school drop offs or pick ups for siblings, as I have limited space in my car, as I take my own 3 children to school.

If you have older children, then unfortunately I am unable to provide school holiday care for them as I also have my own 3 kids at home and it just gets far too busy and limits me as to what I can do with the little ones during the holidays. School holiday clubs are usually more fun and better for the older children.

I am open for 47 weeks of the year. I take 5 weeks unpaid holidays per year during school holidays.

I accept all Childcare Vouchers and provide 2 year and 3 year old funding for either 15 hours or 30 hours a week.

Our daughter is almost 3 years old and has been with Keri for the last 2 yrs. She is so happy at Keri’s setting and it’s like her home from home!

Keri does lots of activities with the children in her setting and takes them to a variety of places. She is very professional, as well as flexible and accommodating wherever possible. She is highly organised and communicates very well.

It is obviously such a big decision when choosing the right person and environment to care for your child, but we couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend Keri.

Keri is currently looking after my 2 year old daughter and I could not recommend her enough. She is very professional while remaining accommodating, kind and caring.
Keri takes the children in her care to different playgroups so they get to interact with lots of other children, which I am very grateful for, as it is a lot more than I am able to do being a working mum.
Keri will always give you the information and paperwork (if required) you need in a timely manner. Her setting is always clean and my daughter has a healthy eating habit thanks to Keri.
What matters the most is that my child is happy and safe in her care, and I can safely say that she is very happy to go to Keri's every day, and she is definitely safe.

Keri has always provided top quality care for my two children. She provides a safe, clean, caring and fun environment with a wide variety of activities. She ensures there is plenty to do on a rainy day, and she also ensures they get lots of fresh air and exercise. She does craft activities, baking and games. She takes them on outings. I get good communication from her. She has shown me all her paperwork and she is very organised and efficient. I've been really pleased with everything and the children always look forward to going. Would heartily recommend.

Keri has provided full time childcare for my 17 month old since he was 8 months. She has a happy and structured routine with him and he loves going to see her everyday. She creates nice learning experiences and her own children are great with him. As busy working parents we really value Keri and her flexible yet organised and reliable approach. We've also been really pleased that she's accommodated his dietary needs and is happy using his cloth nappies. Our son is giggly, confident and well rounded which is in part due to him feeling secure and stimulated with Keri. Would definitely recommend!

My 2 year-old was with Keri for an academic year and she massively helped with the transition from being looked after by me and another carer. He came on leaps and bounds during the year with huge improvements in communication. I know he loved playing at Keri's house and having little jokes with Keri ? Keri clearly cares about all the children in her care and I have loved the little cards my son has made and his development book - absolutely lovely! Thanks Keri, you're a star!! ??
