About Me

My name is Natalie. I am an OFSTED registered childminder with nearly ten years experience. I am a mother of two and live on the Kingstanding/Streetly border (close to Banners Gate) in a quiet and friendly cul-de-sac. I live just a short walk to Sutton Park and enjoy it’s amenities. Children are most welcome in our home and are treated as part of our family. We enjoy books, singing, crafts, baking and games etc. We also go on lots of outings. Each week you can expect your child to enjoy Playgroup’s, soft play, library visits and trips to the park. We also go to museums, cinema, restaurants, farms, zoos and on other fun excursions.

My Experience

I have had the honour of looking after children of all ages and have an excellent relationship with families. Children are nurtured in a safe clean and smoke free environment.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Natalie. 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.

Natalie has been regularly looking after my three daughters for the past 2+ years. Prior to this, my girls had been looked after by family and I was unsure about leaving them with someone new. My initial enquiry for one day of childcare a week for my pre-schoolers soon turned into three days a week - with before and after school care for my eldest added in too - as the children settled with real ease. Natalie and her family have always made my children feel so welcome, their home environment is warm and inviting, and my girls enjoy time spent there. They have such a range of experiences in Natalie’s care - indoor and outdoor, fun and educational - and activities are always well thought out, with consideration given to the individual needs of the children.
Natalie is so very easy to work with; she is approachable, extremely competent, professional and reliable, and she has patience in abundance. I my experience, Natalie has always been willing to work collaboratively with parents to support the children and aid their development, in a consistent manner. My girls are happy and well-engaged in her care, and I can go to work and focus on my job without having to worry about them. I highly recommend Natalie as a childminder - we are very grateful to have her in our lives!

Natalie looked after my little one and also collected from the school nursery for me. Natalie is amazing, treats the kids like her own, she does so much with them especially during the summer months where picnics and trips to the park which is right on the doorstep. Natalie has helped me out when I’ve been in a pickle if I’ve been late and has looked after both my kids during school holidays where they did so many fun activities they didn’t want to come home. Both my kids just love her and can’t wait to see her. I could not recommend Natalie enough, when you are leaving your little ones you want someone you can trust and there is no one you could trust more I can assure you.

My son has been going to Natalie for nearly all of his 10 years, since 9 months old. She is the only childminder I would consider, and my son loves her like a family member (and so do we!) Daytime and holiday activities are very varied, and there is lots of learning along with lots of fun.
Natalie is always reliable and the setting is great. All early years development notes are maintained and passed to the parents to read, and regular feedback is given which is vital. Would highly recommend

Our 2 year old boy Joseph thoroughly enjoyed his years with Natalie and it was truly great to see him develop his confidence and learning. His was a fun packed, busy week with many activities and trips designed to stimulate and engage. The house felt very much like a home from home for Joe and I would without any reservation at all, recommend Natalie.

Natalie looked after my first child from when he was 12 months old and my second child from 9 months old. There is nowhere else I would want them to be while I am at work. They have truly become part of her family over the past 3 years and I love that they are so welcomed and happy there. Natalie has varied activities organised for them and there is always something fun and exciting planned. Natalie follows the early years stages and I love watching how she supports their development. Natalie keeps a folder with photos, pictures and tracking all their progress. Natalie is so caring and trustworthy - I would recommend her without a doubt.
