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
We have been lucky enough to have Kim as our childminder since Feb 2016. My daughter was 9 months old when she started and Kim made my transition back to work so easy by keeping us update on how Skyler was settling in. Even now Skyler jumps out of Bed at the mention of going to Kim's. Often its hard to get her to leave in an evening.
Kim has a designated children room full of entertainment for the children ranging from Babies to after-schoolers. Her facilities are excellent, including a toilet for the children, and excellent outdoor play area. We provide our own meals but Kim is happy to help out if we are unable to. Kim will go above and beyond the call of duty and is always accommodating if we have delays on trains.
Kim is very experienced and keeps up to date with her courses to ensure she has all the up to date information for health and safety.
Kim is so patient with the Children and they just love her. Her positive outlook on life very much mirrors ours and so we know skyler has adopted this too. I can't recommend Kim enough and we are very lucky to have her, like I say she really feels like one of the family and Skyler just adores her.
Kim was so calm and patient in helping our 10 month old settle in. He had never been cared for by anyone other than us so it was a new experience for us all. Kim made us all feel comfortable from the moment we met her and her home is set up perfectly with the amazing dedicated space she has created for the children. Kim was always very accommodating when we made requests to change our hours and understanding of the M25 commute. We are sad our time with Kim has been so short due to relocating and we now have our fingers crossed that we will find someone else who lives up to the high standards she has set.
Kim is great with my 11 month old boy and she's very organised and just about perfect. I really wish more baby sitters were like her. Recommend.
Kim has looked after our son for four days a week since he was nine months old (now 21 months) and before that he did short settling sessions from the age of six months to enable Kim to bond with him. We had seen three other potential childminders and when we met Kim we immediately chose her. Kim has adapted her home to provide a space dedicated to looking after the children; it has lots of toys, storage, space for music and stories, colourful displays on the wall and its own toilet facilities. The children eat in the adjoining family kitchen. Kim is very experienced and seems always to be attending courses to add to and refresh her skills. We have always been happy to leave our son with Kim confident in the knowledge that he will have a busy day, with a good range of organised activities and free play time, and space to relax and take his regular nap. In fact his naps have always been more regular at Kim's than at home! We provide our son's breakfasts and packed lunches and Kim feeds him at teatime with a good range of dishes, taking into account his vegetarian diet and also working around his extremely fussy toddler appetite! Jesse has never come home hungry. These days when we drop him off at Kim's he hardly looks back, he is happy to join his pals and get stuck in with the toy cars and the play kitchen. If our trains are being unreliable, Kim always sends us messages to reassure us that our son is fine and not to worry if we are late. Overall it is this flexibility, the family environment and Kim's cheerful, down to earth yet professional attitude that led us to choose her as our son's childminder and we would definitely recommend her to other parents.
Kim has been our childminder since I went back to work when our son was 8 months old. I knew the moment I met her that she would be the right person to look after him as she is so clearly good at her job. She is extremely capable and nothing ever seems to faze her. She is very good with young children and babies, and it is obvious they all enjoy being with her. She has a separate play room where the children can make a mess, do artwork etc, and she takes them into her garden, on walks or to the park whenever possible. Plus she is the only person I know who has managed to get our son to eat broccoli !
Our son is now 9 and every holiday he asks if he can go to Kim's as he still enjoys himself there, and has made some very good friends over the years.
5 * all round! Kim has been looking after my son from the age of 1 from the hours of 7am until after work. During this time of not wanting to work but having too, Kim made this an extremely easy transistion for me and my son. Kim is flexible, kind hearted and friendly. Kim has a wonderful home environment with a friendly family and has outstanding child minding skills. My son and I adore her, he loves all of the toys too. Kim now looks after my son before and after school and ensures he has nutrition every day with his meals. Kim goes the extra mile and kindly helps him with his homework too. Kim has always been flexible and assists in the school holidays. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone!
