About Me

My name is Kate Boniface and I have been a Registered Childminder with OFSTED since September 2009. I am married to Alastair who is a Primary School Teacher (Head of Key Stage 2) in Folkestone We have two children Oscar (6) and Daisy (4). We live in a large victorian period property in Woodnesborough with a large garden which overlooks open countryside.

My Experience

Since 1994 I worked for 10 years as a Sick Childrens Nurse on a busy Paediatric Unit. Following this I worked for 2 years in School Nursing whilst carrying out a BSc(Hons) Degree in School Health. Following this I was commissioned by the Health Authority to carry out a Research Project at Birmingham University involving Children and Smoking Cessation. Following a career break to get married and have children I became a Registered Childminder in September 2009 and have in total cared for 12 children since this time. In March 2010 I received a 'good' Ofsted inspection where 4 areas of my care were rated 'Outstanding'.

As with any parent returning to work after a prolonged period of maternity leave, I was understandably apprehensive about leaving my precious little girl with anyone other than close family.
We went and met Kate and the gang and within minutes felt comfortable and at ease. It didn’t take long before my little one was playing quite happily and loving this new warm and friendly environment.

Once we had Made the decision to go with Kate, she slowly integrated my little girl into her home and made the transition so easy.

6 months on and we have not looked back. I have to tear my little girl away each day as she enjoys herself so much and waves me off every morning with a beaming smile on her face.
My little girl has had some minor health issues which has not phased Kate in the slightest. She has ensured that all of her needs are met and gives me thorough feed back.

I cannot recommend Kate enough and would go as far as to say, that it now feels like my daughter is spending time with her extended family.

I feel so lucky to have found Kate.
Kate's warm and friendly approach sets her aside from all the other childminders that I had considered in the lead up to going back to work. Kate's home is friendly and welcoming, i feel my daughter could not be in better hands she benefits from the one to one care that Kate and her assistants provide.
I will (&have) recommend Kate, using Kate's childminding service is easily one of the best decisions I have made. I can go to work knowing my daughter is in safe, kind and caring hands.
