Hi I'm Kirsty, married mum of 2 daughters.

I'm a childminder in Wootton, Bedfordshire

I am graded with a GOOD by ofsted.

I offer a home from home, warm and friendly atmosphere. The children I have currently in my care are very happy to be here, they arrive and leave with smiles daily.

I have a nice spacious home with a secure back garden. The kids love spending time outside playing with the mud kitchen, even a spot of gardening. We are currently trying to grow our very own strawberries and tomatoes. We have a mixture of herbs and we do our best to keep them alive hehe...

Our daily/weekly routines include the following - trips to the local park and woods, baby/toddler groups. Soft play centres, we have also been to Woburn safari park a number of times. And we absolutely love Mead Open Farm. We attend the local library and take part of any activities they have going on and to take advantage of their books that the children select to bring home. When the weather is nice we also enjoy a picnic in the park.

I have a group of childminding friends who I meet up with throughout the week whether it's at one of our homes or play group the children have plenty of chances to socialise with other children their age and meet new friends.

I set monthly themes to allow the children to experience new things but we mainly go with the children’s current interests.

I can ensure you that your child/ren will be made to feel welcome and would have lots of run whilst learning through play.

Everything I do whilst caring for young children is all about learning those vital steps for being school ready.
