About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Hello Parents,

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.

I live in a spacious 6 bedroom house with a garden and playroom completely fully equipped for children’s development

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.
We update you with photos via WhatsApp all day of what your child is doing, what fun learning activities they’re doing, their breakfast, lunch , snacks and dinner.
I have a garden dedicated to the children which they absolutely love and have hours of outdoor fun (we love fresh air)
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 and the Sunny Side Team

Kerry and her team made my daughter feel so at home with them when she started going at 12 months old.
She always come back happy and I never felt worried about her whilst she was with Kerry. I knew she was having plenty of fun.

Kerry and her team send lots of updates throughout the day which is very reassuring and makes the days apart seem much shorter.
I couldn’t recommend them enough!

I can’t recommend Kerry and the team enough. My daughter has been with her since she turned 1 and now it’s like her second home. She’s now 19months and loves going so much she actually gets excited when we turn into Kerry’s road. I get updates and pictures every day about what she’s doing and I can honestly say that all the guilt I felt as a working mum going back to work has now gone and I feel safe and secure leaving her every morning as I know how much Dollie loves it there. Dollie does 5 days a week and has never once moaned about going. Kerry and all the team really are amazing and I can honestly say I wouldn’t want anyone else looking after Dollie.

I cannot recommend Kerry and her team enough. She was recommended to me by a friend who also had a great experience and I'm really glad we decided to send our little one there. One of the things she said when we met for the first time is that she treats the children as she would like her own children treated and there is not an ounce of exaggeration in this statement. Our son is a lockdown baby so was not used to spending time with people outside our immediate family which made us very nervous when we decided to start his childcare. Kerry and her team showed him so much love, kindness, care and patience that he stopped crying at drop off after just couple of week and has been happily attending since. We receive regular updates throughout the day with some really cute pictures and the kids get a good variety of child-led and adult-led activity indoors and outdoors. Kerry is also very creative it coming up with ideas for play making sure there is never a boring day at her setting. From themed parties to raising ducklings you will see it all and your kids will enjoy their time there.

My 32-month-old son has been going to Kerrys from June 2019 until Feb 2021 and could not have been happier there. I only withdrew him recently due to a change in our circumstances.
I returned to work full time when my son was 13 months old and was extremely apprehensive about leaving him with someone I didn’t know. I’d had a difficult maternity leave as my dad developed cancer not long after my son was born and died months later. This added to my apprehension of leaving my son and I was worried the stress and grief had affected him. Initially, my son had quite severe separation anxiety but we worked in partnership with Kerry and her team to help him feel more secure when in her care. I honestly questioned my decision to return to work as he did struggle with the transition. However, with patience, kindness and constant reassurance from Kerry and her team he developed the resilience to thrive outside of my care. We have all seen such a positive change in him whilst with Kerry. He has grown into a confident, happy and polite little boy and this is due to the amazing care he has received from Kerry and her team. I honestly believe he would not be at the stage he is without having gone to Kerry’s. Every morning he says ‘I go Kerry’s?’ and is delighted when I say yes. Her beautiful, impeccably clean (even pre Covid) home provided a safe, nurturing space for him to grow, develop and learn. She provides fantastic age appropriate activities that he enjoyed, and an amazing purpose built garden bursting with slides, swings, ride on toys and footballs. Unlike nurseries and many childminders, Kerry provides regular updates throughout the day with photos and videos showing what my little boy was doing. She provides healthy, homemade, nutritious meals and snacks and also treats for birthdays.
Kerry and her team are early year’s professionals who hold the childrens best interests at the heart of everything they do. They genuinely love and care for the children in their care and provide regular development updates and recommendations. Kerry and her setting became an extension of my little boy’s family and he in turn, loves her and the other children there, making lifelong friends. A special mention to ‘Nanny K’ (Kerry’s mum) who my little boy loves dearly. I wish Kerry and her wonderful team every success for the future

I couldn’t recommend kerry and her team enough.
If you are looking for not only a childminder but also a friend who understands the need each child needs and goes the extra mile to ensure they get what they need.
They are very kind friendly.
My son got the best start I could of possibly asked for with these ladies.
I will always be grateful for the love help and support not only did they show my son but the love and support they gave me too.
It’s a fantastic setting very clean and filled with space and outside play.
My son always enjoyed the food and snacks too.
