About Me

I am 43 years old, and a Mum of three children. (My youngest daughter Danai, who is 13, is still living at home, and my other two are grown up and have already left home.)

I have over 20 years experience working as a Childminder. I have worked with young babies, up until school age, as well as older children up to 11 years old. I have a real love for children and thoroughly enjoy my job.

We moved to Little Marcle in 2015, and have enjoyed living in this area so much that we have recently decided to stay. My daughter has just started Senior School, so we will be living here for at least the next 7 years. I feel that it is time to set up my own business, because where we are living is just the perfect setting, and I want to put my training and experience to full use.

Having worked as a Childer Minder for so long, and being a Parent myself, I understand what an emotional roller-coaster it can be, finding the right person to look after your little ones.I have a great understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage, to teach them, and help them to grow into happy, confident children, in a safe and caring environment. You will find me trustworthy, friendly, and reliable.

Please feel free to email if you have any further questions, or if you would like to arrange to pop in just to have a look around, and have a coffee. Thank you for your interest. Regards Kate.

My Experience

As detailed above, in the "about me" section, I have over 20 years experience working as a Childminder. Also, I attended a Childminder myself when I was a youngster, and I have brought up three of my own children. I feel, therefore, that my experience really is supported by my "life experience", and I am able to understand both the Children's and Parent's point of view, in what can sometimes be quite a stressful situation. My overall experience definitely helps minimise any potential stress.

My Availability

I try hard to be as flexible as possible. I can cover early mornings if necessary, and if required later evenings. At present, I am unable to cover overnight or Weekends, however, if someone was an especially good customer, I may be able to accommodate them, in special circumstances.
