About Me

My name is Kate, I am a Ofsted registered childminder and I have been childminding for 8 years. I received OUTSTANDING in my last inspection in all areas.

My setting provides a welcoming, safe, warm, loving and fun environment in my family home.
I care for the children in my spacious home in Lutterworth which I share with my husband and 3 lovely children and our black Labrador.

My home is situated in a very quite and convenient location in Lutterworth, with all local amenities such as the park, toddler groups, Library and shops all within walking distance.

I am committed to providing high quality childcare to all of the children who attend my setting. I have a fully equipped playroom where the children are encouraged to become independent, and can self select a wide range of different toys. Activities are planned around the child's interests and their age and stage of development.

In my large kitchen diner the children can enjoy messy play, crafts and cooking activities. I have a large secure garden which is played in as much as possible. Outdoor play is an integral part of our daily routine. The children are allowed to go out in all weather.

I feel it is very important to take the children out so they can experience different environments and mix with other children. Our daily routine is usually a visit to either a local toddler group, singing group, visiting the park, the farm, soft play, trip to the library, visiting the local church, a trip to Coombe Abbey to feed the ducks.

I offer child care for children from birth to 11 years old.

My Experience

I have been childminding for the past 8 years and have enjoyed looking after children from different families on a regular basis. As well as the experience of bringing up my own 3 children who have now left primary school.

As a childminder The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework I work towards with the early years age group children who attend my setting.

Children learn when they are in a safe and caring environment where they are stimulated through play. I will strive to provide your child with the environment that will be caring, fun and stimulating.

Kate has cared for my little girl for three years and she loves spending time with Kate and her family. Kate is wonderful with all of the children full of enthusiasm encouragement and praise. Kate goes over and above to ensure that all of the children in her care have access to an enabeling enviroment in order to maximise their development. Kate attends many groups in the locality taking the children on trips etc
I could not rate her highly enough making the return to work far less stressful safe in the knowledge that my little girl is in a safe and nuturing environment.

Kate is an absolutely perfect childminder. She is honest, kind and great with my little boy. He has been with kate since he was about 9 weeks old and loves going, they do different activities each day and day trips out to farms, Coombe abbey and play groups etc so days are never boring. The communication between Kate and parents is brilliant as well we are always aware of what he has done on the days he goes whether it be something simple as what he ate for lunch or a big milestone he has reached, we also get picture messages if they have done something that day that Kate feels we would like to see ( it always brightens my day when I'm at work). Kate's own children are also lovely with the younger children that Kate looks after as well. I would recommend Kate to anyone that asked and will certainly be using her services again if I have another child
