I take every Covid 19 precaution that is in the guidelines and keep up to date with the changing of regulations.

Kim and her family are amazing people. As a suddenly single father I had issues with school drop off and pick up and, as a working father, some school holiday days. My son was catered for with a smile and service second to none. Over a three year period he went from being fairly shy to growing into a happy, sociable boy all thanks to the warm, friendly and very energetic family household environment. He loved his time spent with Kim and was sad to eventually leave. There were often cakes, sweets or art projects to pick up with him after school, all things made with her young charges. Other times it was a trip to the park or games in the garden. Never a dull moment in the household.
I am indebted to Kim for being the perfect childminder for me and my son. So I would definitely very highly recommend her services.

My little man has loved every moment of his time at Little Cubs’ home from home setting. He’s made firm friendships & grown in himself within the nurturing environment. Kim provides a wonderful & varied experience for the children in her care, educational, structured and free play opportunities, trips to the park, adventures! All wonderful. I would recommend Little Cubs without hesitation, both my children have been cared for here and even had overnight provision too. A genuine family environment where children’s needs are catered for 100%, wonderful feedback daily, including handing over pre-school feedback on days when he was collected directly from there. Before my son attended preschool he went to playgroup with Kim and it was great to be able to give him an experience like that even though i couldn’t personally take him!
My son is asthmatic and this has been managed fantastically.
A thoroughly safe & reliable pair of hands, we will miss it all!!

I wanted to leave a review for a brill childminder. my daughter has been in her care for a while now and I could tell when i first walked in that my daughter would be happy there. Kim is brilliant with her and my daughter loves it that much she shuts the door in my face to get rid of me!!
Her prices are also great as they are often out doing things and going on trips out.
all in all Kim is a lovely, dedicated childminder and I am more than willing to recommend her to all :)
