About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

I am an Ofsted Registered childminder, graded Good with 4 Outstanding key features. My husband works alongside me as my Assistant. We have 2 children of our own, a boy-16 and a girl-13.

We live within walking distance of many train stations: Kent House, Clock House, Elmers End and Birkbeck train stations as well as Avenue Road and Birkbeck tram stops.

We are a fun loving, welcoming family offering a safe, warm, stimulating environment. We visit toddler groups, parks, farms, soft play as well as lots of arts/crafts and a huge array of toys at home.

I am a member of the Bromley Childminding Network, PACEY and BCMA.

But most of all both my husband and I love our job.

Please contact me for any further information.

Vicky and Chris have been looking after my daughter for almost 3 years now! She absolutely adores them and enjoys her time there! She tells me all about her day. Vicky and Chris keep me updated via WhatsApp messages as well as writing daily records in her book. They do so much with the kids and the kids learn through play. Vicky and Chris also provide school drop offs/pick ups for my son! It works out so well and my son loves going back to theirs after school which so much arty activities planned for the older children

My toddler has been looked after by Vicky 3 days a week for a year now and I couldn't be happier - nor could he.

He really enjoys his time there and comes home each day full of beans chatting about his day, Vicky, her husband, her children and all of the other children. It is a very welcoming and nurturing environment and he is coming on in leaps and bounds. They get out and about a lot which is great for a toddler who has extra energy to spend.

Vicky communicates and keeps in touch with me (both on a daily basis and with regards regular process updates) which is very reassuring and she is always happy to chat.

So glad I found Vicky and Chris.

Vicky has been our childminder for almost 7 years, looking after our 2 children 4 days per week. She is a wonderful organised caring childminder. The whole family are calm and generous, and give a home from home environment for the children in their care. The children get plenty of outdoor play in local parks, and when the weather is bad, get to attend toddler groups with Vicky and Chris always by their side. Our 3 year old son has a dairy allergy, and Vicky and Chris take total care to make sure that it managed, but without him ever missing out. Our children have always been really happy in Vicky's care - and we couldn't be happier with the care they receive.

My 2 and a half year old has been going to Vicky's since she was 10 months old. My partner and I considered both childminder and nursery options when my maternity leave was coming to an end. However, decided on the childminder route as it felt like the right transition after meeting Vicky and her husband and seeing the great set up they have in place. My daughter loves going there, she always talks about her day and even asks to go there on the weekends! It's nice knowing that our child isn't stuck indoors all day as she enjoys the outings to parks, playgroups, Horniman etc. We're really pleased with her development and believe her day care has played a crucial part in this.
