About Me

We are Ofsted registered 'outstanding' childminders. Our names are Kim & Jennie. We are qualified child care professionals and have been working with children aged birth to 15 for 30 years! For the last few years we have been working together as teaching assistants primarily with Early Years and KS1. We ran the before and after school child care and it was for the growing need for this we decided to begin our adventure at Lakeview. We are sure it will grow to be a wonderful place that many children will enjoy!



We are located in Quarry Lane Chichester close to the train station and local bus routes. Our wonderful cabin is set in beautiful grounds, with spectacular views over lakes and provides the perfect setting for your child



We provide a balance of 'home from home' care for children aged between 4 & 11 years, following routines that they have become accustomed to at home, whilst also creating an environment that is fun, stimulating and personal; where children are able to explore, be creative and ultimately enjoy!



We believe that children learn and develop best through play. We always set out to create an environment which will encapsulate the imagination of each child.



We understand the importance of children following their own interests. We know that each child in our care will take a very different journey in their development. We will always support and enable them to do just this.



We recognise the importance of personal, social and emotional development. This is at the heart of everything that we do. Children will always feel valued, safe and secure in our care.



We understand that each child is truly unique. We want to nurture this uniqueness and create experiences which we hope will provide them with the best possible opportunities.

We also operate out of school clubs in the following local schools:

Westbourne House Pre-Prep
Fishbourne primary school
Portfield primary school
St Richards catholic primary school
Please contact us for further details.
