Ethan has been going to Kim since September 2019 (when he was nearly 2) whilst our permanent childminder has been away for 6 months. I was very nervous how he would make the transition but he settled in perfectly and most days doesn’t want to come home. Kim is a really warm and friendly individual with a lovely home and really welcoming family. Her facilities are great with a big garden with outdoor play equipment and fruit and veg patch. There is a dedicated play room with a fantastic variety of toys and books for all ages plus a little toilet which is good for potty training. She makes varied, well balanced meals which allowed Ethan to try new dishes. She is really flexible with her hours in case I needed to drop him off late or was stuck getting back from work. She also gives me really great advice on his development and key milestones. Ethan is going back to the other childminder when she returns since it works for us better in terms of location. We can’t recommend Kim enough. We will really miss having him with her but look forward to keeping in touch and hope to have her again for babysitting and when Ethan starts school for the drop off and pick up option. Thank you again Kim!

Kim has been a fantastic childminder to my 20 month old son! He has come up on leaps and bounds in the time that he has spent with Kim. As any parent would be, I was very nervous about leaving my son for the first time, Kim worked out a settling in period to ensure that it was a smooth transition for us both. Kim has a lovely warm environment for the children, she has lots of toys and activities that would appeal to all ages and gender. Lunches were always prepared fresh and were full of variety! Kim was super flexible and accommodated changes in days/times where she could and was always on hand at short notice. If you are looking for a loving and nurturing environment for your child then Kim would definitely be the childminder for you!

So nice to read. Thankyou so much xx

My daughter has been going to kims for about a year and my daughter loved going. Kim has been very flexible and this has been a great help when you need extra hours. Her facilities are excellent, including a toilet for the children, and excellent outdoor play area. Kim is very patient and understanding when your child is having a moody day or not very well. When anything is wrong or your child has become unwell, Kim is straight on the phone to you and keeps you updated. I highly recommend Kim, her prices are very reasonable and affordable. Kim is a lovely, kind lady and is excellent with children.

My daughter has been going to Kim since she was 4 years old and is now only leaving because she is going to High school . We have found Kim to be the most accommodating , professional and loveliest childminder we could have asked for. My daughter has always been so happy at Kim's and it has been like a home from home for her. She has never wanted not to go and sometimes I have had trouble getting her to come home.
Kim has also been very flexible and this has been a great help when you commute for work and work shifts. My daughter treats Kim's house as a second home and has always been made to feel welcome around the family.
Kim provides healthy balanced meals ( my daughter eats food at Kim's which she wouldn't eat at home.)

There is a play room which is well stocked with toys and books and because of this children of different ages mix with each other and teach each other social skills. Kim also teaches the children through art and craft and they learnt about different cultural celebrations. My daughter has also been on trips to Godstone farm, park and over the common.

I cannot recommend the care that Kim provides highly enough . I have always been extremely happy but if I had of had an issue I feel that I could easily approached Kim with it and talked it through. We shall miss Kim very much and will keep in touch as she has been such a part of our lives over the past 7 years ,

We started taking our daughter to Kim just after her first birthday. Having no family around it was very difficult for us leaving our first born with a stranger but we hit it off instantly with her warm loving personality. When our LO started talking she started to call her nanny which was really sweet. In the one year our LO has been cared for by Kim, she has learnt so much and her personality has blossomed. We would highly recommend Kim as an exceptional childminder and love her to bits. We would have kept her at Kim's much longer if we didn't move so far away. Xx
