About Me

I have been a registered childminder with Ofsted for over 20 years and I am a member of Pacey, I have two sons of my own that now live away from home and have 6 beautiful grandchildren. I have a large garden with a playhouse, lots of toys and activities that the children can enjoy. I have many activities in the home for the children to do including messy play and educational games. I also have a car (with child safety seats) for outings and adventures.

My son Dreu has worked for me for 4 years. He is Ofsted approved, had his DBS Check (police check), done his level 3 first aid course and is up to date on his safeguarding courses. He also has 6 children of his own, who think the world of him and all live together with him and their mother.

My Experience

I have been a registered childminder for over 20 years. I love watching children grow and achieve to the best of their abilities as individuals. I have lots of experience with children of all ages and stages of development. I like to take the children on outings along the seafront, the woods and to the parks. I believe that the outside environment is healthy and exciting for children to explore the world while enjoying themselves. I also enjoy taking the children to local facilities around Cleethorpes and Grimsby. I also take the children to toddler groups for them to play with other children and make new friends.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Kez. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

In a nutshell, Kez has been brilliant from day one. She's approachable and easy to get on with, she's really great with children, really cares about them, and she knows her stuff. My son has been going two months and adores her already.


We were hesitant about leaving our son (3 yrs) with anyone outside the family, and Kez was really understanding. She gave us plenty of opportunity to visit so my son could get used to her and I could see her with him and the other children. He took a shine to her straight away.

First and foremost, it's obvious that Kez loves children, loves being part of their growth and development - and that shows in her positive, nurturing manner and in all the fun things she does with them. She teaches children to share, take turns and be mindful of each other. She's very clear with her boundaries and expectations, and enforces these consistently and with kindness and plenty of praise and rewards.

Kez really listens to what you need and will bend over backwards. In my case, she has offered to arrange and sometimes re-arrange days so that my son gets to socialise with as many children as possible – which is really important to me in the run-up to starting nursery.

My son was anxious at first about going to a childminder, and he became quite clingy with me. However, Kez built up a great rapport with him very quickly, and would send me pictures of him playing and laughing minutes after I left and throughout the day, which was very reassuring. Now, he can't wait to see her and often doesn't want to come home!

I'm really pleased with how much time my son gets to spend outdoors with Kez. She regularly takes the children out and about to various parks or walks around the local area, or trips out further afield – for example a recent drive out to the countryside to look for animals and farm vehicles.

When indoors, children do a range of activities. Sometimes they play freely together with toys of their choosing; other times they do more structured adult-led activities like play-dough, art/craft sessions, dance/exercise routines and messy play. There's lots of variety and a good balance.

Kez incorporates learning goals into the children's play. These are matched with their abilities and fit with the government's guidelines. My son has been expanding his colour vocabulary for example, and practising counting objects up to ten, and she's helped him to develop a really good pencil grip when drawing. Kez records the children's achievements and progress in a tracker booklet, and parents can see their child's tracker any time they like.

I've got no hesitation in recommending Kez. Our son is really well cared for, learning, enjoying himself and growing in social ability and confidence.

Finally I should mention that Kez's assistant Demi is really knowledgeable, friendly, full of enthusiasm, and our son really enjoys spending time with her too!

Kez has been looking after my four children for a few months now and they’ve fallen in love with her, she sends me photos regularly of them painting drawing playing with play doh etc .. She’ll send a message in the morning to let me know my older children have gone into school ok which is very reassuring all my children love spending time with her she’s very polite and friendly and she’s always happy to help and work with you I’m lucky to have found Kez as I wouldn’t be able to work and attend university without her support. . If your looking for a polite friendly and supportive childminder who is great with children and who can work with you on hours you need them I’d highly recommend Kez

We were with Kezzy the other year and have recently returned after a short break and she's been wonderful with my son. He's always happy to stay, she sends me photos throughout the day, and has even stepped in to babysit outside out of our contracted hours when I was let down to attend a wedding reception. Always friendly, polite and accommodating when I can't get away from work in time to pick him up. Can't recommend enough!

Was really good to start with, but over the past couple of months my mum has been picking him up from there and everytime said my son was just stuck in a highchair in front of the TV so decided to remove him for his benefit and place him somewhere else next year, I'd also never seen anything she had done on his progression or development the whole 7 month he was there, since this she has threatened to take me to court ect for money up until September when I had given my 2 weeks notice in march. The way she acted when I chose to take my son from her really changed and all she cares about is money and not the family shed be taking the money from when they need it too feed their kids and live.

Kez has been absolutely brilliant with my little boy and he enjoys every second hes with her. She keeps me at ease by messaging and sending me photos through out the day with what hes been up to. I couldn't of asked for a better child minder to look after my son :).
