About Me

Hello , I am a fully qualified OFSTED registered childminder who has always taken a keen interest in child development and child care. My dedicated approach ensures that I am fully up to date with all recent and relevant training courses to do with OFSTED so that your child will progressively develop in my warm, kind and nurturing environment.

I am a mother of 2 wonderful children, a 7 year old and a 12 year old who attend Moorside primary and High school so I can provide before and after school club, drop offs and pick ups from here.

We have a loving, gentle giant here too called Poppy, she is a soft and very cuddly 8 year old Great Dane. Poppy is used to children of all ages starting from newborn, playing, running and being noisy around her, which never fazes her. She isn't a licker, isn't allowed on the furniture and doesn't play or pick up any child toy.

We also have an extra large, fully enclosed and secure back garden where children can get their hands dirty in a spacious environment. We have a slide, seesaw, football net and sand pit for children to play with in a safe setting.

My structured daily routine and development programme ensures I follow the EYFS standards plus I have a wide variety of resources to help the children develop in the 7 key areas of learning. I provide healthy home cooked meals and cater for all children's dietary needs.

I am ideally situated in a leafy cul-de-sac just off worsley road, which provides quick and easy access to local parks and the Worsley woods area.

My sons been with Katie now for a few weeks and I can honestly say I’ve never seen him happier! I was really nervous about leaving him with someone but Katie was so warm and reassuring when we first met and she has been amazing since! She’s like a second mother to kobie and I can’t thank her enough for everything she does! Her beautiful dog Poppy is so friendly and great around the children so do not worry about her! I genuinely feel so secure and happy when Kobie’s at Katie’s because I know he’s being looked after properly! He’s come on leaps and bounds since joining such a happy boy! Thank you for everything katie❤️Xxxx

My 14 month old son has been attending Katie's childcare for a month now. I was nervous about who I was leaving my child with while looking for the perfect child minder and when I came across katie it was a god send! Hugo warmed upto her straight away and loves attending. He has come along a lot within a month and can even say katie. The setting is like a home from home very comfortable with most loveliest dog who Hugo adores. Please don't let poppy the dog put you off because she is the softest, most friendliest cuddly giant. I really do have the most perfect child minder. Thankyou for everything you do for my son Katie!

My son is 2 1/2 and had been in nursery for 6 months but never really got into it, and was always upset to go. It was a great nursery but for my son we came to the conclusion that he craved a more one on one option where he would get a high level of interaction and attention.

We explored the childminder option and found Katie through this site. Katie is a warm, generous individual and we instantly felt at ease from our very 1st meeting.

We introduced our son over a week initially to Katie and then to Poppy the dog as we dont have a dog at home so wanted to make sure he was comfortable. And he was. It feels like a home from home and instantly my son built a lovely connection with Katie and the family.

My son is there 2 days a week and Katie fills his day with activities, indoors and outdoors, tailoring them exactly to his needs. There Is also a vast array of toys, materials, books etc to stimulate.
The house is so welcoming and there is a terrific safe play area in the garden for my son to play freely. Poppy the great Dane is a beautiful gentle giant who my son adores, and largely will keep to herself.

Katie regularly keeps us up to date throughout the day with pictures and commentary and for every session an update report is completed that talks through all activities of the day from food to sleeps to nappy changes to learning opportunities.
We feel so informed and so happy with the service Katie offers. It couldn't have gone better and for my son to be asking to go to katie’s now is so good to hear. I can see he loves his time there and is blossoming. It feels like an extension to our family.

I would highly recommend Katie as she is an excellent childminder with a warm generous attitude who offers a safe, caring environment.
