About Me

Hours open 8am to 6pm. Mondays to Thursdays.Trafalgar school runs available. Holiday cover. Adhoc care.

Hi, I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder in the Trafalgar area of West Horsham, offering a home-from-home, animal loving environment.

Married for 19 years with our 4 children of 19,18,15 & 9 years.
Also have 2 very soft soppy Labradors and 3 rescue rabbits.

During the week days, we visit various places, groups and other childminders. But we also like our time at home too, with books and toys.

We are outdoor people so our activities involve lots of fresh air plus walking the dogs, going to the rec & playing in the garden. And of course, the animals need brushing & cuddling !

I can offer drop offs, pick-ups, before school, after school, inset days, one-offs, emergency as well as part time & full time day sessions. I aim to be as flexible & as accommodating as I can.

Ofsted Registered with full insurance. Flexible childcare in a family/animal home !

If you think you & your child would like to become part of our family, please get in touch as we'd love to hear from you.

On meeting Stacey we felt welcomed in to her home, we saw some lovely interaction with the children and she was great with our daughter who was 10 months at the time. The home has a nice family feel with the dogs, Betsy and Bo who are great with the children, though they are not unsupervised. We have a dog and going to Stacey has helped our daughter to be more gentle with our dog.
Our daughter has been nurtured and cared for, she is a confident child but we feel that this environment has promoted this.
Stacey is wonderful, we would highly recommend her.

Our daughter has been with Stacey since July 2017 and has thoroughly enjoyed her time here. She has grown and thrived in Stacey’s setting and had the awesome opportunity of being around animals too. We are all going to miss Stacey. X

Due to a contract ending my daughter was only with Stacey about 3 months, but from the moment I met her I felt completely at ease and happy with the care she could provide my daughter. My daughter instantly felt at home with her, her family and the pets and I had no concerns that she would miss me while I was gone.

Lots of lovely trips to Fishers Farm and to local parks and she was fed a healthy meal at the end of each day too.

I highly recommend Stacey and really hope we can return to her when I am in employment again.

When my child was to start school in 2015, I started to panic as to how I would get him to and from school. As a single, full time working mum I couldn’t rely on anyone else to help me make sure my child could attend school and still allow me to work in my current job.

Turning to Childcare.co.uk I remained skeptical and cautious, looking for a solution for the childcare I needed. After reading reviews of many Childminders, I stumbled across Stacey (Kitty Cats).

Reading through her profile, I was immediately taken by her fondness of animals. Knowing that she had variety of animals in her care at home, I believed this to be indicative to her caring nature; I was completely right.

Since 2015, my child has been in Stacey’s care 5 days week and I have never had any concerns about the care that my child receives. Stacey has made my child feel like her home is his home and that he should feel safe and well looked after. Whilst being with Stacey, he has made great friends with the other children, Stacey’s family and also the animals that are in her care.

Stacey has helped me to encourage good eating habits whilst in her home, good social interaction and even my child’s creative side. Whenever possible she will take the children out to a local park to allow them time to play and have the freedom of outdoors before going home ready or dinner.

I would recommend anyone to get in touch with Stacey. She goes beyond her role and helps with the little things that just take off a little bit more stress. I couldn’t have been able to juggle school and work without her.

Stacey – Thank you always!

Stacy started looking after by son when he was a baby so I could go back to work, I was very worried about leaving him but Stacy made myself and my son very welcome and contained to support his growing needs. He is now two and a half and "my stacy" as he calls her is a very much vauled part of his care.
I could not recommend Stacy highly enough.
