About Me

Hi, my name is Kim, I have been an ofsted registered childminder since 1997, CRB checked and rated Good by ofsted. I am very passionate about my job and never go a day where I don't love what I do. My Husband Steve works as my assistant early mornings doing the cooking (meals are included) and my daughter Charly works with me as a full time assistant.
We offer a homely and friendly enviroment where the children can feel at home and have lots of fun with many different toys and activities available. Everyday is a different day. We have our animals who we all love very much, Glitter & Glitz are our two cats who are two old ladies now, we have 2 chickens called Mable and Fuchsia and our rabbits Doris and Bonnie.
We are a big family, We love to watch the children grow and learn new things and spend their days with their friends. Without fail the children make us smile and laugh daily and that tops any other job in the world.

Both of my children have been going to Little Humbugs now for a while and I couldn’t of asked for better childminders! Both my 7year old daughter and my 1 year old have both had a brilliant time playing and learning during there time there. It was always a worry of mine that I wanted both children in the same place whilst ensuring my daughter was picked up from school too, but Kim made things very easy and I was always more relaxed knowing they was together at the end of the day!
Charly and Steve were also fantastic. My daughter always loved walking home with Charly from school and my son very much enjoyed Steve’s company.
Fantastic childcare. I would definitely recommend!

My daughters have been looked after by Little Humbugs since they were 2 years and 9 months old. They are now 6 and 4 years old.

Kim, Steve and Charly have been a huge part of both my girls early years. I can honestly say they have become like extended family, not just to the girls but for us all.

Little Humbugs is a caring and engaging childminders. The children often get involved in all sorts of different activities, such as Travelling Ted, “doing the wall”, craft, stories and dress up days. As well as lots of play, of course. I have always felt confident and safe in the knowledge that my children were cared for just as I would care for them, which I why I chose a Childminder over a Nursery.

The girls have also made some lifelong friends through the Little Humbugs family and so have I!

Any parents who are looking for a childminder should absolutely consider Little Humbugs. They really do a wonderful job and my children love going to ‘Kimmies’.

Since my son left to go to school, Kim & Charly have continued to look after my 4 year old daughter who enjoys every minute of going to Kimmie's! It is such a welcoming environment with a lovely family feel. She has made some great friends and enjoys playing with all the toys they have there. She loves crafting and bringing her creations home or having them displayed in the play room. Kim & Charly are wonderful childminders not only for the children but for the parents who leave their children in their care. Both my children will continue to attend Little Humbugs in the school holidays as we couldn't bear to say good bye............ x

Kim and Charly have looked after my two daughters, who are now 23 months and 4 for over a year. There is a real family feel about Little Humbugs. They both settled in extremely well and have made some lovely friends. I am always confident and happy in the knowledge that they are looked after just as I would look after them. I enjoy hearing about the exciting activities they get up to and updates in their development. I would absolutely recommend Little Humbugs.

I cannot praise Kim and Charly enough for the care they provide for my daughter. My daughter has been going to Kimmies since she was 10 months old and just loves going there everyday. Kim and Charly treat her as one of their own. It makes me happy to know that when I drop her off every morning she is loved and cared for. My daughter has turned into such a great little lady and that is all thanks to Kim and Charly.

I recommend Kim and Charly to anyone looking for a childcare that is genuine, caring, kind, loving and is great with children.
