Kim is 100% the best childminder we have had for our children. She has looked after our now 4 year old daughter for 2 years and she settled in very quickly. Our son, now 6, has also had after-school pick ups from Heathcoat school. Kim has a lovely manner, she is gentle and kind with the children as well as maintaining boundaries, encouraging things like tidying up by making it into a game. They play outdoors often, exploring the garden and playing on ride ons, sliding etc. As well as playing with toys with the other children, my daughter has enjoyed a range of activities like painting and crafts, stringing beads etc.
The environment at Kim's is very nurturing and she understands the needs of each child- my daughter has been through points where she has needed naps, potty training etc and it was all a breeze with Kim- which is reassuring as a parent that you know they will be safe during these important stages.
She communicates very well, she uses Famly app so we get photos of what they have been up to, eaten etc. She mentions anything important at the doorstep too. She is very dependable, and when she has the space she has been able to have my son or daughter for extra sessions too.
When we lived in another area we had other childminders and they were good, but I can hand on heart say Kim has been the absolute best childminder we have had. For all the reasons above and more. My daughter is going to nursery in preparation for school now, but keeps talking about things she remembers from being at Kim's, and says 'I don't ever want to forget Kim!' I think that's all the proof you need really!
I can 100% recommend Kim from Hoglets childminding. She is not only wonderful in engaging with children, she is extremely caring and professional. She has been fantastic with my son, with her calm & confident approach and friendly & caring nature. Thanks so much for the last 18 months- My son will miss you lots.
Kim is an absolutely brilliant childminder to our 2 year old girl. We are so fortunate to have her and have built a brilliant relationship over the last couple of years. Kim's communication with us has been impeccable and she has been so happy to help and be flexible with us as keyworker parents during the current pandemic. Our little girl is so happy with Kim and I feel confident sending her to Kim, she just knows her so well and has a really positive relationship with her. Kim uses Famly as well, which is a great way to get updates on how her day has gone and helps with that transition from one setting to the next. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hoglets' services at all, it is a genuine home from home and it is clear that Kim genuinely cares for every one of her children.
