About Me

Hello, my name is Kerry and I am an Ofsted registered childminder providing home based childcare in Copmanthorpe, York. I am married with three daughters aged 18, 16 and 14 years plus 2 friendly fluffy cats called Eddie’ and Molly. We live in a child friendly home, which has had a Home Fire Safety Check by members of the local Fire and Rescue Service. We have a dedicated playroom with downstairs toilet and we use half the kitchen space too. With an outside gazebo and lots of outdoor equipment in a fully enclosed garden, with own specific entrance/door bell through the garden gate, with direct access into the childcare space. We are close to the local school, playgroup, nurseries and to the local park and shops. Copmanthorpe is also ideally located with easy access to the A64 if you are commuting e.g. from York to Leeds

My Experience

I seek to provide a supportive, yet stimulating environment for your child, so that they may play, grow and develop with confidence in a happy family environment
Children learn when they are in a safe and caring environment where they are stimulated through play.
Babies and young children develop best when they are in a caring relationship with an adult. A baby will learn to walk faster when they have a safe pair of arms to walk towards and learn to talk, when they have an adult listening and responding to them.
I will strive to provide your child with an environment that will be caring, fun and stimulating. I will implement ideas from the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. I am also connected to the local playgroups and school through the Early Years Partnership, so I gain lots of experience and ideas through them too.

My Availability
