About Me

Hello,

I’m Kirsty and I am fully qualified , insured and Ofsted registered childminder based from my family home in Yorke Gate,Caterham on the hill.

I have recently had my Ofsted inspection and met all areas.

I have been a Childminder for the past 2.5 years and very much enjoy my job! Helping the children grow, learn and develop new skills everyday is so rewarding.

I live with my Husband and 2 children, aged 8 and 1, we don’t have any pets and are both non smokers.

I offer a safe, nurturing,caring, home from home environment, treating all children with the respect and care I do my own children, which I believe helps them flourish and shine.

Whilst in my care the children enjoy going to local play groups, park visits, days out in the Summer holidays, arts and crafts, baking, playing in the garden, and much more.

I follow the EYFS to track children’s development and ensure they are meeting their developmental milestones whilst in my care and use the online app Baby’s Days which allows me to instantly share information with parents.

My Experience

I have a 8 year old Son and a 1 year old daughter which of course has given me a lot of personal experience.

I have cared for children as young as 5 months and upto 11 years old.

I have previously worked in a primary school running an after school club and also as a midday supervisor

My Qualifications

I hold a Paediatric first aid certificate and I’m also epipen trained.
I qualified as a childminder in 2016 following completing a ChIP course through Tandridge District council. This allows me to follow the EYFS to track your child’s development the same as nursery schools.
I have completed a Working Together To Safeguard Children course as well as a Food Allergy Training course.
I regularly update my knowledge with training courses both online and in person.

My working hours are 7.30/5.30 (6 if required) Monday to Friday.

Kirsty has been providing before school care for my little boy since he started in reception. He absolutely loves his mornings at Kirsty’s and the welcoming home from home environment she provides. Knowing he was so well looked after has taken away one of the biggest stresses of being a working mum!

Kirsty looked after my toddler until change of circumstances. My son loved his time with her. Kirsty did a wide range of activities with him, caring for all his needs, as well as being flexible to accommodate the needs of me as a parent!! I felt completely happy when dropping him off into her care. Kirsty is reliable, professional, creative, caring and supportive. I would highly recommended her.
