About Me

*WEBSITE AVAILABLE SOON*

Hello,

After studying for almost two years while working a full time job for an Advertising Agency based in Central London I became a qualified OFSTED registered childminder. I have completed the childminding course and have all the required qualifications needed.

My previous job was working for Saatchi & Saatchi where I worked for 15 years so a pretty different change in career. I can honestly say that I know where my passion lies, this being working with young children and helping and watching them to develop. I worked as an assistant with my sister who is also a childminder in the area. Now being a childminder myself for quite some time my sister and I decided to team together along with our mother who was a primary school learning mentor for 24 years. We work closely with the children to make daily challenging activities both observing children in the areas of learning and discussing children's next steps and progress.

I have previously had my children with childminders so I fully understand the importance of ensuring the right choices are made when it comes to childcare for your children.

We can provide care for your child what would be stimulating, educating, nurturing and fun with a purpose built playroom and access to the garden.
We work to the development matters scheme and follow the guide lines of the EYFS ensuring your child is regularly observed and that their next steps of development are followed through.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like any other information regarding the service I am providing.

A full Ofsted report is available online with my reference number

I am located 4-5 minutes walking distance from Oakleigh Park Station so should you need to drop your child off and then jump the train then this is one option worth thinking about... you can also leave your vehicle parked outside my house should you wish to do so to save on parking fees. Oakleigh Park can take you direct in to Central London to Kings Cross, Moorgate or Finsbury Park.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you should you have any questions.

Kind regards

Kerry x

The most perfect childcare providers
Kerry & team are the most loveliest people I have met and so happy to leave my child with them.
My child is so excited to go to them everyday and runs straight in
Her setting is 5 Star, the garden is huge with the best equipment, its like a playground. Theres a huge tower swings and slide, she really dedicated her home for our children.
I get FaceTimes, updates all day. Its so lovely to see my child playing.
I had trouble settling due to covid and my baby just being with me she had separation issues but Kerry offered us over in her own time many of weekends for a tea so the baby could understand Kerry, the house and that everything is going to be fine because mummy and Kerry are friends
Homecooked food, even have photos of that! They are just perfect Please please look at the garden, the children are entertained all day :-)

Kerry is a wonderful childminder who has gone the extra mile for us and our two children. I contacted her in June as we were told our nursery wouldn't be opening until September. We visited a few other settings but knew straight away Kerry's was the right place for us.
She is so flexible and friendly and her Mum Karen and sister Kirsty are also very lovely - they make a great team. Kerry gave us lots of settling in sessions which were all free of charge and was very flexible when we went on holiday. Our two loved it as soon as they arrived and there were no tears - they just walked in and got playing with the other children and toys. They always talk about and look forward going to Kerry's house and have a lovely time when they are there.
Kerry is very responsive over messages. I get sent regular updates each session with photos of the children playing on the trampoline, wendy house, push along cars etc. in her lovely garden and loads of crafting/painting/baking activities. They are always very well fed and really enjoy being is such a friendly homely setting. Kerry's home is very clean and tidy but well set up for messy play and inside and outside activities.
I would definitely recommend Kerry, Karen and Kirsty as excellent childminders - I'm very happy we found them!

Kerry and her team (mum and sister) were a life saver for me back in January 2020. My son struggled to settle with our previous childminder and I was looking for someone who would have the time and patience to help settle my son. Kerry is amazing and my son settled instantly, he is so happy at Kerry's house and he now waves goodbye to me with a smile on his face when I drop him off, what every parent wants right?

I honestly couldn't be happier with how things turned out as I now feel like I have the best childminder in the area, thank you Kerry, Karen and Kirsty xxx

Wow, what can I say. Kerry and her team has looked after all my children over the last few years.

She cared for my youngest only a few months ago before Covid-19 and I will continue with her once my older children return to school In September.
Kerry has always been so informative and caring even in this unprecedented time.

Her home is clean and welcoming and all my children has felt safe in her presence. Just look at the children’s faces when you visit her! They all so happy.

She provides outstanding care and when my son wasn’t settling in well after 2 weeks she continued to work with me to ensure he settled. It wasn’t easy for me but she reassured me with constant text messages and pictures..

My oldest children always speak of Kerry and say how much they love playing at her house.

If you’re looking for a safe, clean , loving and educational settling don’t hesitate to contact her.

She’s been amazing from day one and has done more than childminding for our family!

Well done Kerry and team!

Kerry is one of the best childminders I have had and I would recommend her to everyone. My children have been very happy and looked after so well. I have complete peace of mind when my children have been with Kerry. My son has developed so much and has so much fun all the time. Kerry follows the early years development curriculum which so amazing as I don't have any worries about my son's educational needs.

Kerry provides thoroughly amazing support for me and especially for both of my children.
