About Me

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

We had a couple of negative experiences with childminders before we found Kerry, Kirsty and Karen.
Our daughter has been with them for over a year and she loves them all and looks forward to going there.
Kerry has a beautiful, clean and spacious home and garden and ensures the children have home cooked food and a range of activities during the day. She also keeps us up to date with messages, photos and videos throughout the day.
Kerry is extremely kind, flexible and reliable- a God-send:):):)

My son has been with Kerry, Kirsty and Karen for the past year and he absolutely loves every minute with them. Definitely feels like family and nothing is ever to much trouble and they all go out of their way to help and keep in touch with updates. He loves the wide range of activities, large space to run around as well as a well equipped garden to play in. Life long friends have been made and I can’t recommend Kerry highly enough!!

My little girl has the time of her life at Kerry’s. Her team alongside her lovely mum and sister make a happy warm environment where her days are full of fun, play and making life long friends. I always get pics and updates on what she’s up to which I love and she always comes home so happy after a day with them, what more could you ask for! :-)

Kerry, along with Kirsty and Karen have looked after our son for 18 months now and we could not be happier with the level of care he's received. Together they are the crack team of childcare: extremely reliable, very professional and flexible when you need.

Her setting is modern, light, spacious and clean and filled with lots for the kids to do and with new additions all the time. There are toys and books galore, arts and crafts and an abundance of things to fire their imaginations for all important roll play.

The garden is well equipped for lots of outdoor play and there is even a lovely sheltered space where the kids can play, or take lunch al fresco! Lunch is filled with will healthy options and Kerry has always made sure that my vegetarian boy is well catered for.

I could go on all day about how fabulous this childminder is, but if I had to describe Kerry's childcare with one word it would be: Kind. Kindness radiates from this Childminder Extraordinaire, and your little one will be in safe hands in her care.

Was recommended Kerry and family from my previous childminder who had to move away.
I can honestly say I was delighted to come across Kerry Karen & Kirsty.
Walked in to a beautiful spacious home with garden and playroom.
My son runs up the drive everyday which is very comforting as I know he obviously loves being there.
I am kept up to date daily with photos and messages and can message Kerry whenever I like. No nursery offers this and not many childminders so I am grateful of this.
I like the fact it’s family run, I am so pleased I found you all xx
