About Me

Hi, my name is Kim. I am an Ofsted registered and accredited Childminder providing free entitlement funding for 2 year olds and 3/4 year olds. I am fully insured and a member of Pacey ( formerly NCMA ). I am married, have 3 grown up children ( 2 still at home ) and live in the Broadfield area of Crawley. I provide care and education for children under the age of 8 years in a warm and friendly homely environment. My home is pet free and suitable for allergy sufferers.
I am an ‘out and about’ childminder and like to take the children out most days. I visit the local parks and amenities, childminding groups, toddler groups, soft play centres etc and meet regularly with other childminders and their minded children.


My aim is to make each child in my care to feel happy and secure and to learn and play in the most fun ways. To achieve this I work to low numbers caring for no more than 3 children at any one time.

Response by kims childcare on 05/02/2019:

Thank you very much! Your boys are lovely and I enjoy looking after them : )

Kim has been looking after my 3 year old daughter twice a week for over a year now and both myself and my daughter are extremely happy with the care she gives. Her home is the perfect setting for children of all ages, with many things to do and play with, including role play, arts and crafts, garden toys, books, puzzles... The list is endless. Her setting is also safe and very homely and welcoming. My daughter has always looked forward to going to kims and comes home with fond memories of her day.

Kim also takes my daughter out to different toddler groups and soft play, strawberry picking ect no matter the weather. Kim also follows the EYFS which is fantastic for me to see how my daughter is progressing and how well Kim is doing to help her progress.

Kim is such a lovely, kind lady who loves her job and is very good at it. I would highly recommend her to anybody that is looking for childcare.

I could not have wished for a more perfect childminder! Kim has been looking after my son from when his was 10 mounts old now his 4. Kim is brilliant at what she does, my son loves spending time with Kim and her family and come home such a happy boy!
Everyday Kim taking my son to the play group where my son can play with ather children to develop his social skills and have more fun!
I have messages send to me to let me know what my son has been doing, which is absolutely lovely and a daily diary which is great to read and see how my son has been progressing.
I strongly recommend Kim as a childminder to anyone!

I feel very privileged that I have a child minder as dedicated, brilliant and warm as Kim. She is a highly skilled and experienced child minder, with a thorough knowledge of children's development and needs.

Throughout the day, Kim provides a huge range of learning opportunities and experiences, including taking my children to a local play session which enables them to socialise further, the library and various parks! I am always amazed with the environment she provides- it's a bit like a mini playgroup but so much more homely and warm. At the start of each day, my children sit down with Kim and decide on the activities they want to do from playing with lentils or cornflour in the water tray, painting on the easel, rubbing coins, playing imaginatively, creating with play dough and so the list goes on!!!
My children absolutely love going to KIm's and have formed a wonderful bond with her and also her boys too. This is fabulous for me, as I know my children are with someone they adore, being well looked after and learning in the most fun ways!

I can't recommend Kim highly enough ( and Mum's of the over 3's, because she is accredited -basically trained to such a high standard -it means just like at playgroup's or Nursery's you can use up to 5 session Government funding as payment! Perfect! )

A great find and certainly not one to overlook!
