Childminder in Salisbury
Female Member since Feb 2014 Last Updated Mar 2022 Last Login 26 Jun 2022
My name is Katie Cash and I am 40 years old. I live with my husband Jon and our two children, Matilda (9 years old) and Tom (7 years old).
I live on Coombe Road, near Salisbury Hospital where I provide a clean, safe and secure setting within a loving and caring environment with a ‘home from home’ feel where the children are welcomed and valued as part of our extended family.
Following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), I have a wide range of toys and equipment and provide fun, stimulating and challenging activities. I strive to offer experiences and opportunities to provide the best possible learning outcomes for each individual child in my care.
I have an indoor play area and additional space where the children are able to relax if they choose. Patio doors lead to a large enclosed garden where the children have plenty of space for free flow outdoor play with lots of outdoor toys and equipment.
We do lots of lovely activities, ensuring we cover the seven learning areas of the EYFS. These include art and craft, painting, play dough and cooking to name a few. We read books together, sing and dance and have lots of imaginary play.
We like to go out most days to either a park, the library, toddler groups, the markets, the Arts Centre, Salisbury Cathedral, Wilton House or local farm parks, indoor soft play centres as well as outings slightly further afield. Often we meet with other childminders, providing plenty of opportunities for social interaction.
I make it a priority to communicate with parents. This includes sending photos through the day of what we are getting up to, daily discussions, diaries and tracking their child's development.
We have lots of fun and I always ensure each child feels loved, valued, safe and secure, providing the best possible environment to have fun and promote effective learning and development.
I qualified as an Ofsted Approved Childminder in June 2014 just after my youngest child turned one.

Katie is an absolutely brilliant Childminder. My daughter has been going to Katie since she was just 2 years old and we are really gutted to have to leave her care because we are moving. Katie has made the experience of me having to leave my child every day very easy. Her home is very much that, a home so I know my child gets a nice relaxing and fun environment when she gets back from school which is important to me. Katie is loving to all her children and my daughter just adores her. I would thoroughly recommend Katie to anyone as my child has been in both full time and before and after school care with her for 5 years and have had a great experience throughout.
