About Me


My name is Kelly, I am 44 years old and live in Ashford with my husband, three children born March 2000,June 2002 & July 2009. We have a cat called Bimbo,rabbit called Nibbles and a small Maltese dog Reggie that is our very much part of the family.

I have been childminding since May 2012 and really enjoy being at home with the children. We have lots fun playing both inside and out with lots of toys and games along with arts & craft and reading, attending stay and play toddler groups, visiting local parks and amenities along with meeting up regularly with a great network of other childminder’s and their children. I find it very rewarding and would like your child's time with me to be both enjoyable and memorable.( A happy childhood memory!!).

My child has just left Kelly as he's starting school he was with her 3 days a week from 7.30am till 5.30am he was here for a year and a half
He was always happy when dropping him off and always came out with a smile on his face
Kelly takes the children to different groups constantly meeting up with childminder friends he even got to complete his very own sports day in the summer complete with medal Kelly always keeps you updated with various photographs on baby days and my son always came out with paintings and art work which are now on our kitchen wall
Kelly is very caring towards the children she treats them like her own family she even sent me personal messages when my son wasn't well just to check in even at the weekend to see how he was
Kelly is an amazing childminder I never felt guilty of leaving my son with her as I knew she would take good care of him even now driving to school my son always asks if he can go to Kelly's house

If your looking for a reliable childminder who becomes part of your family then look no further

Thank you for everything you have done for our son

Our 19 month old son has been with Kelly for a few weeks now (3 days a week) and we are so happy. He really enjoys being with her and her 3 year old daughter. So much so that he asks for them on my days off! He also really likes her two older children and they are lovely with him. He is truly treated as part of the family when he is there which is a big part of why we chose her. We wanted our son to have a home from home experience. As well as playing with their numerous toys at home he also gets taken out to toddler groups, children's centres, the park and other activities. She has been very flexible and responds to all my little ones needs, making sure he has his naps and plenty of healthy snacks to keep him going between meals! He never cries when I drop him off... He waves and blows kisses from the door as he feels secure to be left there. Communication with Kelly is brilliant. I find out about his day and exchange information via a daily diary as well as face to face at drop off and pick up times. I know what he's eaten, how often his nappy is changed, how long he's slept and what he's done during the day. I also get sent some photos via text during the day to put my mind at rest which I just love! I would highly recommend Kelly as a childminder :-)
