Hello My name is Kirsty, I’m 31years old and have lived in St. Columb Major, Cornwall my whole life. I met my husband 15 years ago and we have been together ever since. We’ve been married for 8 years. We have 2 gorgeous children, a daughter who is 7 years old and our son who is 4 1/2 years old.
I have been an ofsted registered childminder since 2017 and before this worked within a nursery/pre-school and breakfast/afterschool club for 8years. The age range was from 3-months to 11years.
I have also worked with children on a 1:1 basis with Special Educational Needs from the age of 3 until school age. I also have a level 3 qualification in Special educational needs. I found working on a 1:1 basis with a child very beneficial to my working experience and very rewarding.
I have made the decision to take a break from childminding to help support my youngest son in his transition to primary school but I wish to stay in the childcare sector so I have started up babysitting again which I have done for the past 15years or so.
My Qualifications & andTraining:
Level 3 in Childcare and Education
Level 2 in Childcare and Education
Paediatric First Aid

Level 2 Food and Safety in Catering
Level 3 Multi Agency Child Protection – Safeguarding (Core Course)

Kirsty watched after our daughter a few times while we were on holiday in Cornwall this summer. She met us at our hotel and brought some toys with her, which was a really thoughtful touch.
Kirsty was very nice and extremely professional. Our daughter instantly warmed to her and by the last day she was reaching out for Kirsty when she arrived, which made us even more comfortable leaving her in Kirsty's capable hands. At the end of each evening she made sure to tidy the space and clean our daughter's bottle.
An absolute lifesaver - would highly recommend! We'll definitely contact Kirsty again next time we're in Cornwall.
We contacted Kirsty for help looking after our two children for a few nights on our family holiday. Kirsty was really flexible and professional in terms of arranging the cover and when she arrived, she instantly hit it off with the kids which allowed us to head off for the evening without any worries.
She brought some games along to keep the kids entertained (which was a very thoughtful touch) and they were very excited to know when she would be coming again.
Kirsty babysat for our 9 and 7 year old boys twice at the Bedruthan Hotel this summer. She was absolutely great with the boys and they warmed to her immediately. She is fun but firm and we were delighted to have found here! The boys even asked if we could go out another night so that she could come back again - which has never happened before!!! I could not recommend her highly enough.
My little girl hit it off with Kirsty immediately. Kirsty had such a wonderful ability to put her at ease which meant I could go to work happily knowing that she would be having the best time. Kirsty is very kind and caring and my little girl loved being there. She provided a wonderfully nurturing environment with lots of educational activities. I couldn’t recommend Kirsty enough.
I can honestly say Kirsty is amazing . I was so anxious and worried about leaving my little girl when I went back to work but Kirsty has really made the last 2 years as easy as possible. She would let me know how she was getting on with regular updates throughout the day. My little girl loves being with Kirsty not only does she have lots of fun but she is always learning new things. I would definitely recommend Kirsty whether it’s for a few hours or a longer period you can relax knowing you child would be safe and happy.
