About Me

Hello, my name is Kerrie Thornhill-Smith, I am married and I am Mum of 5 children. We have a Bichon Frise (dog) Lily, fantastic with children & Sox (cat) who spends most of the time outside.

I qualified as a Childminder in 2014 but I found myself working within a primary school in 2015 which I had volunteered in since 2009 as an SEN Teaching Assistant, which I absolutely loved.

I have a lot of experience working with children and young people over the years and I have also worked within the NHS for about 15 years, mainly administrator roles, but I also completed a lot of training relating to nursing, counselling and smoking cessation aids within the Smoking Cessation Service and Health Promotion.

My home is now my workplace which I intend to offer your child a safe, warm, stimulating, exciting and caring environment in which they can play, learn, develop and be happy.

The whole of my downstairs has been approved by Ofsted. I have a through living room, which the back room is our main playroom.

My dining room is where the children will be eating and baking.

I have a downstairs toilet and wash basin.

My garden is huge but currently is still a work in progress, I have however, still an area for the children to play safely and a summerhouse which we also have play, craft, reading and exploring areas.

I also only pick up from Bacon Garth Primary School, Cottingham & Wolfreton School, Willerby.

I am also registered to offer 2, 3 & 4 year funded places.

My Experience

I have worked and volunteered within primary schools for a number of years, working as an SEN Teaching Assistant until 2016. I have 5 children of my own children (3 boys & 2 girls)
