About Me

Hello my name is Kathleen, I am an ofsted registered childminder living in Crawley Down. I live with my 2 daughters aged 16 and 10.
As a mum, I know how difficult it can be to choose the right kind of childcare for your child, with this in mind, I provide a warm and loving home-from-home environment that is safe, secure and stimulating.
I live in a non smoking household, with an enclosed rear garden which the children can play in.
I have lots of toys that provide learning through play for both indoors and outdoors. I often take the children out to many different parks, farms, libraries and playgroups to ensure the children learn through experiencing the world and can interact with their peers, enabling social skills from an early age.
I hold a full UK driving license and use my own vehicle which is fully insured and fitted with appropriate aged child car seats.
I provide nutritious home cooked meals, which change each day so that the children enjoyed a healthy balanced diet.
All the children in my care will have individual learning journals which is always updated throughout their time with me. This will show parents how they are learning, interacting and developing.
We have a website

Kathleen and Georgina have been looking after my son for just about a year. He first started going at around 10 months old. We are incredibly happy to have found such a wonderful childminder! Their place is a second home - my son is happy to get dropped off in the morning, and he comes home exhausted in the evening having been kept engaged all day! They have a really good itinerary to keep the children busy both inside and out - and all weather too. Having children of a range of ages really helps develop my son's confidence and his ability to interact with all children and people of all ages. The meals he eats with Kathleen and Georgina are very nutritious and freshly prepared - which as both parents are 20+ year veterans of hospitality, is a very important part our family's life. He has also had an overnight stay, and didn't even blink at the change in routine because he is so comfortable there! The daily updated diary with pictures is a ritual for us to check after he's been. The daily pictures are great for us to send to the grandparents scattered around the world. Thanks very much, we look forward to our continued ties; and we will be happy to send our second (as yet unborn) child to join their big brother at Kathleen and Georgina's!

Kathleen was my childminder for nearly 9 years and during that time she provided wonderful support in a home-from-home environment. Both my children (now aged 12 and 14 years) still consider her to be one of their 'go-to' grown-ups which is a testament to the care that she has shown them. Highly recommended.

Kathleen has looked after my son since he was a baby,he is now 9 years old & is treated as one of the family.
He loves going to Kathleen's,which is normally overnight as we are both shift workers.
Kathleen has never let us down & even if we are delayed on our flights,she keeps hold of him until we get home.
Her daughters are also very close to my son,especially the youngest as they have grown up together which is lovely.
Kathleen always cooks yummy meals for the children in a lovely home environment.
Kathleen always does lots with the children,soft play,days out to farms,etc ensuring your child will be stimulated & never bored.
We wouldn't know what to do if we didn't have her as our Childminder.

Kathleen looks after my 2 children and they both adore her and have lots of fun in her care. She will often meet up with other children so they get to interact with their peers which has been amazing for my child who is about to start school. My children do lots of arts and crafts with Kathleen which they both love to do. She is very patient, kind and attentive and honestly treats my children like part of her family. She cooks healthy and yummy dinners which even my very fussy 4 year old finishes. It's very hard being a working mum and I would be lost without her. I would highly recommend Kathleen to anyone looking for a loving and fun environment for their childcare.

Kathleen has been looking after my children for 5 years and they adore going to her! As a full time working mum it can be daunting leaving your children but the home from home from environment is so reassuring and I feel confident they are in a safe secure and loving environment. So much so my son calls her daughter his "sister"
I really cant recommend her enough
