About Me

My name is Katherine Mills and I am a registered childminder graded as 'Good' at my last inspection by Ofsted. I live in a quiet cul-de-sac in Totteridge with my husband and children. My daughter is 13 and at secondary school and my son is nine and goes to Carrington Junior School. We have a cat called Bingo but no other pets.

We regularly attend toddler groups, music groups and soft play areas and visit the park as often as the weather will allow, we love a picnic!

During the time we spend at home we do craft, baking, read stories, dressing up and lots of other activities and toys which I update regularly. I also have a safe, enclosed large patio area attached to the house which the children have access to most of the time with a play house, ride-ons, scooters and sand and water and a large lawn area for running around on and playing parachute games.

My Experience

I registered as a childminder in March 2012 and have been very busy ever since also having my own children has given me a wealth of experience!

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Katherin. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our son has been going to Katherine for just under a year and he loves it! Katherine does a wide range of activities with him and really supports his development. Katherine has always been flexible with our needs. She keeps a detailed diary of what our son has done that day which is lovely to be able to read and talk about with him. My son has a food allergy and Katherine has always managed this perfectly. Most important of all is I know my son is being cared for in a way which I would care for him myself and I can go to work with complete peace of mind. I can't recommend Katherine highly enough and feel very lucky to have found her!

We are really happy with the service Katherine provides. Our little one has never been very happy in big crowds of people so I didn't think it was appropriate to send him to nursery. Katherine has a lovely house with a wide selection of toys. While it has been difficult to return to work I am very safe in the knowledge that out little one is safe and in a lovely family environment.

Our little one started with Katherine when he was just under one and he has developed so much. He loves the interaction with Katherine's own children as well as the other children she looks after. It has really helped to develop his social skills.

Katherine is very calm and adaptable in meeting the needs of the children she looks after. She takes them to a range of toddler groups and provides lots of photos so you don't feel like you are missing out. She also provides good feedback at the end of each day on your child. The children are all provided with very healthy food and snacks. She also is very flexible when you need to work additional hours or change days.

Sadly we will be moving soon and I know our little one will miss Katherine and her children who have become his little playmates. I highly recommend Katherine for proving great childcare.

Our son has been with Katherine since he was one. He settled in quickly and has always enjoyed his days with Katherine. There's a fantastic balance of activities, craft and play. Weather permitting the kids are encouraged and love to play in the garden or down at the park.

Katherine prepares a good meal for him every evening and he gets to sit down and eat it with the family which is something we can't do during the week due to work commitments. Katherine also keeps a detailed daily log which documents all his activities and achievements for the day.

Katherine's kids are lovely and make great play mates for our son who has benefitted greatly from spending time with them. Katherine is also the only person he'll allow to cut his nails! Katherine's partner is also great with the kids and is equally helpful - even dropping of left-behind teddies after hours!

Katherine is organised, affable and very accommodating. She gives plenty of notice of holidays etc and has always helped is out when we needed some extra cover. We'd have no hesitation in recommending her.
