About Me

I have been a registered childminder since 2008, working from home which I share with my husband who is ex forces and our two ( young adult) /children.
My Husband and I are originally from Stoke- on-Trent moving to Plymouth in 1994 when we got married, as he was in the navy., he left having served 24 years and now is employed as a civilian for Babcock. (All living on premises over 16's have a DBS check)

We also have a small rehomed dog called smithy, who is approximately 15 years old...he is quiet unless the door bell goes! and is very happy to be petted. We have found that children who may be afraid of dogs have, with a graduated safety first approach, come to love him and learn how to care for and treat animals well and learn about being safe around animals we do not know.

I provide regular outings which include the Aquarium, Sparkwell zoo, Woodlands local parks and beaches, libraries and museums etc. making the most of this beautiful city and surrounding area.

I also jointly run a childminder play group where the children can socialise, and I also help at the local church toddler group which the children very much enjoy being part of. (I also volunteer my expertise at Sunday school)
I currently pick up from Hooe primary and all aboard nursery most days and also offer holiday cover for all ages.

I have a dedicated, inviting playroom for the children where they can easily choose from an array of quality toys and learning resources that engage, support and expand development in a play centred environment.
I also have a generously sized garden and various play equipment inc mud/sand water play kitchen, slides, see saw and ride on toys.which is easily accessible from the playroom. With coded gate entrance ./ secure.

I work closely with 3 other excellent local childminders, which provides wider social experiences and acquaints the children with other registered childminders which parents could potentially utilise for holiday cover or shared care options.

My Experience

I have many years experience with all ages of children with differing needs. including hearing problems, speech delay, autism and medical needs working closely with parents and children in each case to achieve the best possible outcomes and support.
I am used to working with other agencies and professional agencies and fellow childcare providers.

I am committed to ongoing development of my skills. Training so far is too many to fully list but includes: SEND, First aid, Elklan lets talk with under 5's

Kerry is a great childminder the kids love her. They go on lots of fun outings and so something different every time.
She is reliable and flexible. She has a good relationship with other local child minders so the children get to play with other children.
