About Me

I have a passion for working with children. I am fascinated by their hunger and desperation to learn the world we live in. Which at a young age can cause tantrums as they don’t have an understanding about emotions and have not learnt the skill to keep it under control. It’s about understanding and having the patience to understand each child individually is child is unique and what might work for one child doesn’t work for the other, it’s all age stage relevant. Children are amazing, I love to offer them a wide range of Opportunities to explore different environments, to help them progress with their next steps to achieve their goals to reach their maximum potential in the 7 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, through play.

I have had a good teacher and would like to be as experienced as my mum (kidswithdebby childcare) & my step dad (Kidswithallan childcare), they are both Ofsted outstanding childminders. I have learnt a lot of their skills by growing up in a Childminding setting and have admired how they offer equal opportunities and offer Equalities to every child, no matter their race, culture, ability or disability.

It’s rewarding, hard work, but also a great achievement to know you made a difference in their lives with offering children, firstly a sense of belonging, a sense of love and safety. At the age of 19, I want to extend my training further and will be carrying out some further knowledge by completing some webinars and courses on line. I never thing in this profession that you can stop improving your skills to help children and their families.

Children respond well to mixing with other children and having opportunities to learn to share for example as this will impact their later life, as adults they will need skills to share the pathway, a works space, a house share and so forth. They need to have boundaries to keep them safe and have an understanding about The Law as they grow older, with the understanding it keeps them safe and others. To mix in toddler groups, to become social and have skills to communicate with others. Social skills of respect, patience, empathy and tolerance of others, to understand their actions can effect others emotions, to prepare them for the individuals they will become when older.

I want to be your children’s role model and teach them how to behave in different circumstances, how to manage and problem solve without always doing it for them. Keep them safe but let them take risks. It’s called risky play. Children need time to think and time to get it wrong and bounce back. I am here to support them. They are like a vase waiting to be filled, they watch and learn and practice and keep repeating learning patterns in order to satisfy their learning and move on to the next learning stage.

Children need the foundations of a safe loving environment and champion who will be there to support them emotionally with the understanding of their needs and wants. I will continuously be monitoring and observing the children and work closely with families. I take pictures and videos throughout the day so you can be involved with their day and give you a clear handover. I can offer continuous care and offer a babysitting service also.

Please note I don’t drive. I am happy to use public transport or walk.

My Availability

I’m looking to work with a child/children who need long term care, to be the key person for your child/children to build good relationships with both parents and children. This is important for me and your child. Children need a sense of belonging, they need lots of cuddles and warmth and structure.

Katie is simply made for childcare. She’s SO capable and lovely. Children love her, even really discerning children. She has been a godsend to our family. Always reliable and responsive, sends pictures, comes up with great ideas for activities and is simply a natural. You couldn’t find better. But I need her. So don’t take her! Worth her weight in gold

Katie has babysat our kids a number of times, during the day and in the evening. She has known our children for some years, and always makes sure they have plenty of fun during daytimes, and get to bed/stay in bed in the evenings. We feel our kids are very safe and happy with Katie. She is always on time, and keeps us informed if she has anything she feels we need to know. I would recommend her to any of my friends looking for a babysitter in Brighton/Hove. For a young woman, I think Katie is extremely responsible and reliable, but also full of fun and affection for our kids.

It was the first time that we used a babysitter for our 2 kids (2 and 4 years old) and I was really nervous not knowing how they would find the experience but as soon as they meet Katie they just felt completely at ease with her and started playing.
My son especially had a great bond with her and really trusted her.
My kids felt like they knew her for ages and can't wait to go back.
Happy kids and happy mum.
