Hi my name is Kirstie, I am Ofsted registered and live with my husband and our three year old son, I also have three step children. I am extremely flexible to help parents with their working week.

I offer an 'home from home' environment, making sure all children feel at home and welcome. My downstairs is dedicated to the children, including a downstairs toilet. I have a large selection of toys from birth to teens including educational toys to stimulate learning and development. My outdoors is secure and a safe environment with a large variety of toys and equipment for all ages.

I follow the EYFS, I observe children's development and plan their individual needs focusing specifically on the prime areas of development:
Personal, social & emotional development
Physical development

Below are the latest reviews for Kirstie. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

We needed a childcare provider at super short notice due to unexpected circumstances, plus we have had the same childminder for 4 years so it's hard to leave your kids when you have built up that relationship! Kirstie made my husband and I feel 100% comfortable leaving our boys (7 months and 3 years old) in her care. They enjoyed being in a home environment and going out to soft play with her too. Our baby carried on like there was no change to his routine (& his weaning) which in itself is a credit to how Kirstie made them feel while in her superb care! Flexibility on drop off/pick up times really helped too. We 100% recommend other parents to use Kirsties childminding.
