My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

Hello, my name is Katie and I am a professional, caring and enthusiastic childminder providing flexible, affordable high quality home based childcare.
I have been happily married to Aaron since 2013, and we moved to Woking in the May of 2018.
We are the proud parents of three children born in 2009/2011/2016.

I am a Ofsted registered childminder with 15 years experience in childcare.
I began working with children when I was just 15 years old, I started babysitting my nieces to begin with and then that grew within the community of my family and friends and it was then that I knew that I would have a life long career working with children.

We started our family in 2009 and I was extremely lucky to be able to stay at home and bring up our daughter and soon after our son too.
In 2013 I started working in a school until 2016 when we had our 3rd child, it was then that I was faced with the childcare struggles that every parent faces when they wish to return to work after having a baby and I knew I wanted to continue my career in childcare and so it was then that I began my training and made the decision to become a registered childminder.
During this time I undertook various training courses, many led by professional lead practitioners which have extended my childcare knowledge.

I have full paediatric first aid training aswell as safeguarding children and child protection level 3.
I am cache level 3 trained in preparing to work In home based childcare.
Myself and my husband are DBS cleared.
I have completed various other training (cpd) courses which are also ongoing.
Certificates can be viewed at any time upon request.

I own a 7 seater car which is fully insured to transport your children, so we can travel further afield if we choose.
I have a range of car seats if required.

I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (eyfs) framework for each child’s individual learning and development needs.

I HAVE 1 SPACE AVAILABLE FOR FULL OR PART TIME CARE FOR 0-3yrs

Katie is a wonderful childminder. Simply wonderful. We found Katie at a short notice, desperate for some help and she is heaven sent. Highly qualified, professional, supportive for parents, and what is most important – absolutely fantastic with children. My son loves spending time with his "nanny", he feels safe and happy, he likes other children and activities, he is always happy to see Katie picking him from school when I have to be at work. I couldn't be happier and more reassured about his safety and quality of care.
