I am an Ofsted registered childminder and live at home with my husband, two boys (aged 10 & 8), our border collie dog and 3 chicken's! We live in Halterworth, Romsey in a 3 bed semi detached house with a large garden. We have lots of room for the children to move around and have plenty to keep them busy and active throughout the day.
We are always out and about exploring the New Forest and surrounding areas with the dog and we love to find new places to walk and explore!
I have many years experience working within schools, in all year groups and worked very closely with school SENCO's. I have assisted in 1 to 1 speech therapy, physio sessions and other interventions within the classroom and have a keen interest in children’s mental health, autism, behaviour management and sign language and I am very keen on constantly improving my own learning by completing CPD’s and courses.
I have plenty of places where I like to take the children to improve their mental and physical skills and regularly attend local play groups, parks and plan other exciting days out! I have also managed after school clubs where I have to provide children with imaginative things to do to keep them occupied.
I am also a fully qualified swimming teacher and I have been teaching babies and children to swim since 2001 and is something I still enjoy to do now!

Highly recommend Kiely for anyone in need of a childminder. My son (3) absolutely loves going there. He gets so excited. Always has loads of fun whatever they do, there’s something for every child. Kiely is definitely passionate about caring for the children & making sure they have the best of times. Best childminder my son has had by far! So glad I found Romsey Rugrats- & very flexible too!
My two children have been at Romsey Rugrats for a few months now and I couldn’t be happier!! Kiely takes such wonderful care of them both and they always have a great time!! The developmental work she does with my son, encouraging him with his writing is just one example of the amazing job she does!! It’s always great to see what the children have been up to whilst there, they are always up to different exciting things!! Highly recommended!!
Kiely used to childmind my children, she looked after my son Jacob ( 18 months), daughter Phoebe ( 3 years ) and Amy (5 years ) since August 2005.
I was extremely happy with the care they received, and the great progress they made whilst in Kiely’s care. Kiely's home is always welcoming, clean and well organised and my children had great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care. Beyond all this though, it is Kiely's warm and friendly but no nonsense approach which sets her apart from other childminders we have experienced.
She provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise. My children enjoyed sand and water play, drawing and sticking, reading and puzzles as well as outings to the park, trips to feed the ducks and walks to the park.
Kiely is a great communicator and has no trouble in gaining childrens confidence and therefore encouraging good behaviour and kindness and compassion to others, both skills which are important to us at home. When my children were hurt or feeling under the weather I know that they felt very happy and safe to be comforted by her and I am confident that she can administer either first aid or medication following all the correct procedures and completing the necessary records to ensure his health and safety.
Our son Jacob has severe asthma and allergies that are anaphylactic, he needs inhalers, epi pens and antihistamine near him at all times, I had 100% confidence in Kiely with this extra responsibility and she always recognised when he needed his inhaler and communicated with me at all times.
I am also aware that Kiely ensures good personal hygiene in encouraging all the children to wash their hands before eating and after using the toilet. I’m sure that it is this practice together with the cleanliness of Kiely’s home which ensured that my children remained healthy and bug free for their time there and there was no accidents with Jakes life threatening allergies.
All in all I was thoroughly happy with the level of care my children received and I’m certain that being in such a positive and happy environment helped my children develop into confident and happy children.
I would absolutely recommend Kiely as a great and reliable childminder.
