About Me

Hello! I’m Catherine, a trained early years practitioner and mummy to a 3 year old fairy goblin princess and a very smiley little boy who has just turned 1. I spend my days with my children, playing, tending to the garden, walking and baking both make believe and real cakes and yummy treats.

I like to think that my house is a home away from home for my mindees, I offer a relaxed, comfortable setting with a bright colourful play room, and lots of outdoors space to explore, we have fruit trees and an old stable block that provides shelter on the rainy days.

Once a week we head over to Drew's pond nature reserve and are often out exploring the by ways and local woodlands.

My Experience

I started childminding in 2019 shortly after my daughter was born. I previously worked in central london as a project manager and safe guarding administrator, but wanted to create a life style that would be supportive of my family and allow me to be creative and work from home. I have always loved spending time with little ones and I
I love childminding! Im also a mum to two small children and i know how important it is to ensure that they receive the best care by using my experience as a parent to ensure I give the best level of care and attention to your little one.

I make lots of yummy home cooked vegetarian food and all food, nappies, wipes etc are included in my fees.

My Fees

  • Childminding from £6.00 per hour

I accept childcare vouchers and children aged between 3 and 5 years may qualify for the Early Years Funding for up to 15 hours per week and up to 38 weeks per year. Also some 2 year olds may also qualify for government funding. For funded places I charge a small fee for consumables which allows me to continue to offer high quality food, resources and trips. You will never be asked to pay more for any activities (i.e. trips to the national trust). Fees include food, drinks, nappies, wipes and outings

We highly recommend Cat. She looked after my son for a year when I returned to work; she would have continued had she not moved away. My little boy was still very young and I wanted him to be in a caring and nurturing environment. Cat and Tom provided that family environment we were seeking. Cat is superb and always went the extra mile. She planned fun, creative and educational activities which supported my son’s language development. Cat is an amazing cook and the food choices enabled my son to explore new textures and flavours. One thing we really did miss about Cat is her level of communication. The end of the day handover ensured we knew how much he had eaten, drank and slept.
