About Me

We are an Ofsted rated Outstanding Family run Childminding service based in Outwood.

We care for children of all ages and offer drop off and collection from Rooks nest and lofthouse gate school.

We open from 7am onwards and this includes breakfast, our after-school sessions runs from 3:15 up to 5.30pm.

P** We do not provide weekend Services **

We believe children thrive in a home environment and their approach is very much child led, spending a lot of our time out in nature . We encourage learning through play, and all food provided is homegrown or organic vegetarian food!

We are currently in the process of becoming a “Curiosity approach “ accredited setting.

We are attentive to responding to children's needs and interests and extremely easy going, respectful and ethical people.

My Experience

I work with my husband who is my assistant and is working towards his level 3 in childcare and education.

Kim & Mark are amazing, they interact with children like they are their own.
Both my children love going, always happy to go and always happy and full of their Experiences story’s when they come home.
The setting is child lead, and they cover an extensive range of the curriculum, they treat every child as individuals and will adjust to meet their needs.
Just an AMAZING setting x

Our son has been going to Freerange for 18 months now and he adores Kim and Mark - we all warmed to them the moment we met them and their calm, loving approach to childcare. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

My little girl has been with Kim and Mark for two years now. She has been happy and settled there and absolutely loves going. Working in education probably made me over cautious with selecting the right childcare provider but I knew from minute 1 that this was just perfect for us. I have decided to keep my daughter with them right up until she starts school as opposed to using the local school nursery. I couldn't think of two better people to contribute to the development of my little girl.

My daughter has been with kim and mark for over a year now, my daughter loves going, I had to change childcare over a year ago due To both me and my daughter not been happy with the previous childminder. My daughter would come home upset and grumpy and say she was ill on a morning, this never happens with kim and mark unless she is genuinely ill. Kim and mark make their own meals and interact with all the children inside and out, there home is full of children having fun, learning and getting involved with preparing meals. I couldn’t ask for better childcare.

Kim and Mark do such a great job with my son. He is learning not only the fundamentals of day to day life but he is also growing so much as a little man. There is so much love and compassion that Kim and Mark put into each day with the kids, and the creative activities they do really proves this. When my son returns home he is constantly talking about how much fun he has had and for me, as a mother, that is priceless. Couldn’t be happier with his place there.
