About Me

Ofsted Outstanding Provider Logo

* Rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted (September 2016)

* Accredited Curiosity Approach setting.

* 5* Food hygiene rating

* BA(Hons) Early Years

* Home from home setting

I live in a 3 bedroom house in Burnham-on-sea with my two boys aged 14 and 7 years old. we have 2 fluffy house cats called Harry and Bongo.

I have a conservatory which is our main play space, as well as a living room and kitchen / diner which provides lots of space to play. I also have a large, secure garden and a seperate outdoor childminding play area.

I have a selection of resources, toys and games as well as 'open ended resources' allowing children to use their creativity and imagination to play. For children in the Early Years age group I will plan activities based on their individual interests and next steps to help them learn and make progress in all areas of learning, whilst having lots of fun! I follow the Early Years Foundation stage.

I share a daily diary, photos and observations of your child's time at my setting through an app / online system.

My Experience

I completed my level 3 BTEC national diploma in Early years at Bridgwater college in 2005, which involved work placements in nursery, school and private family settings. After college I went on to work in a nursery, working with children from 6 weeks - 5 years.

Whilst working, I completed my degree in Early Years with the Open University. Completing my degree gave me a huge amount of knowledge in regards to supporting learning and development which I am now able to implement into my practice.

I decided to become a childminder so I can provide quality care and fun learning opportunities for children in a homely environment. I registered as a childminder in March 2013.

My son was going to Kelly’s House as a pre-schooler and also after school/school holidays and had a great time. The activities they do are fun and educational at the same time. Highly recommended

My daughter loves going to Kelly. Kelly is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. She is flexible when I've needed extra sessions and quick to reply messages. I love that her setting and the activities are varied and change with the children's interests. Thank you Kelly.
