About Me

Please contact me if you have Term Time only requirements

I currently work Monday~Thursday term time only

I mind children from babies up to 12 years of age.

I also mind/wraparound care in and around
Lorraine Infant school , Cordwallis junior school
and I drop off in the morning to St Augustine’s

I offer a very homely and fun home from home environment. i have children of my own and mindees of various ages from 6months - 12years. The kiddies love coming here as there is always someone to play or interact with and they get the benefit of homely comforts with lots of interactive play

I have 2 girls of my own, one born January 2012 and one born January 2014. We moved as a family to Camberley in July 2016 and have been minding in the area since, Previously I was living in West London, where I started to Childmind when my eldest little girl was born. I live with my long term partner (DBS checked) and our 2 girls in a lovely house 10mins walk from Camberley Centre. We have a lovely playroom and seperate kitchen and dinning room and a large garden. We also have a downstairs toilet, so lots of room for little people. There is lots of room for play, activity and sleep. I was a nanny from Oct 2012 to July 2013 to another baby girl the same age as my oldest daughter. I am Ofsted registered since July 2013, Previous to Children and Childcare, I worked for Guinness in an office based role and then went on to own my own business for 6 years. Since having my first daughter I decided to take a change of direction in my career. I love being a mum and decided to make childminding my career.

I have completed the required Childminding courses run by my local council and also hold a paediatric first aid certificate and level 2 food and hygiene certificate and a safeguarding certificate.

I love children and we get out and about every day. We go to our local drop in playgroups which have lots of varied activities, we go to parks, farms and soft plays! Every day we cook fresh heatlhy food with lots of variation.

My motivation to be a childminder is seeing my children laugh and smile. I understand it is so difficult for mums to go back to work and leave their baby, I had to make that decision and now I want to help working mums and dads and look after their children with as much love and care as I would expect a childminder would provide for my daughters if I made the decision to leave them in child care.

My Experience

Being a mum myself I have lots of baby experience. My first minding experience was a baby alongside my eldest daughter, they were 8 months and both the same age. i done this contract until both girls were 3years. This gave me lots of experience for looking after multiples of the same age. Since moving to Camberley, I have been minding, 1x full timer boy who is now 2 years old, I have also 3 & 4 year old part time nursery goers on my books along with my own 3 year old and I have x3 5year olds who I have before and after school on my books, alongside my own 5 year old. I also drop and collect an 8 year old girl.

I came across Karen at the start of 2018. I needed a personal service to support my personal circumstances and she was more than willing to help.

She has offered a warm, welcoming and nurturing home away from home for my son for the last 5 months.

She communicates well and gives help and support when needed. I found her to be very reliable and I would highly recommend her.

Karen has been our childminder for over 1 year, and we loved her from our first visit. The family Home is warm, welcoming, and perfectly suited for children. With a huge back garden, playroom and kitchen table for all the children to eat, play and study on.

Karen offers such a personal service, and allows parents to feel comfortable with all aspects of her care.

Our son LOVES being at Karen’s, and we know he receives the best care, wholesome meals, and fun before and after school play.
