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.
Our little has been with Kim & Mark for over a year now and he has come on leaps and bounds since joining then just after his first birthday. We were looking for a childminder who practiced a much more hands on and creative approach to early years and we've definitely found it at Freerange! Kim's creativity and eye to see how things can be played with or adapted into learning tools always surprises me, shes also training towards her Curiosity Approach accreditation which is such a wonderful way to look at early years learning. Highly recommended, lovely people our son loves visiting their house and enjoys the age range of children that attend.
My little one has been going to FreeRange since he was around 9months old, and he loves it. I can't thank Kim and Mark enough for all they do for my little boy. So reassuring going to work and knowing your little one is in great hands!
My son has really struggled with separation anxiety and after trying a few local childminders we were about ready to give up until we moved here. My neighbours spoke so highly of them and they are rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted (which i’d not seen anywhere!) so we decided to give it one more go, and I’m so glad we did.
The house is so warm and welcoming and the learning environment is incredible . Kim and Mark are so professional in everything they do and I love their approach. Everything is centred around the children’s happiness and they work tirelessly behind the scenes, whilst making it all look and feel so effortless.
I can honestly say I’ve never seen my son so at home with anyone and that’s exactly what it feels like, home. The changes in my son are nothing short of a miracle. He looks forward to going everyday and he’s excited about learning and happy to try new things. That to me is everything. I can’t thank Kim and Mark enough for everything they do. Truly outstanding.
The first time we went to meet Kimberley and Mark, my girls instantly hugged Kim and went to play. That was the first thing that made me say we had found the right person!
The girls were coming home everyday excited about all the new things they had learnt, done and seen during the day. Most of the time they didn’t even want to leave!!
We are vegan and I knew that Kim and Mark would feed them the right foods: healthy, balanced and in line with our lifestyle.
To this day my girls ask to regularly go and see Kim, Mark and their children as we all grew attached to them. They are beautiful people and care for the children with much love and respect!
I was so worried about leaving my son, bit Kimberley out me at ease instantly. I love their approach and their happiness guarantee ensuring that by the time I had to leave my son to go to work, he was extremely well settled and happy. Kimberley and her husband Mark are really lovely people and I'm so happy I chose them to care for my son.
