*** RELOCATED TO MIDDLETON/COTTINGHAM AREA 10 MINUTES FROM CORBY TOWN CENTRE ***
I am a registered childminder living in a lovely village called Middleton. I have two girls of my own aged 10 and 13. I have previous experience in childcare, having gained a level three diploma in childcare and worked at two separate nurseries in the Corby area.
The outdoors is important in our family and that will be reflected in the child care that I provide. We have a dog, as well as growing our own fruit and veg at our allotment! Fresh air and exercise will be at the heart of my child care service and wherever possible, our walks and excursions will be educational e.g. Woodland walks.
I aim to be as flexible as possible to parents needs and requirements as I know that each parent has different priorities for their children and hardworking parents need to know that their child is safe and happy whilst they are being cared for.
2 Years working at West Lodge day nursery
2 Years working at Wellingtons pre-school (Middleton)
Level 3 diploma in child care
Paediactric first aid qualification
safeguarding children qualification
Although these are my standard hours, I am available at other times by request.

Katie has been looking after my son from 6 weeks old till 3 years of age. She has gone far beyond expectations and gave great start to my sons education and prepared him well for larger setting and became part of our family.
My little biy has been going to Kate since he was 4 months old he loves it and Kate is great with him
Katie has been looking after my son Louis since he turned 6 weeks of age.
Now at 2 he is very sociable and happy boy in Katie's care. Her running by national curriculum and engaging him in various activities daily helped him developed into very confident child.
Katie has an ability to surpass parents expectations and provide care that encourages child into steady growth.
She became part of our extended family and ensures that best child's interest is met.
It was easier to return to work knowing that my son is being well taken care of.
Katie has a capability to create great atmosphere for children to come to and they are thriving in her care while being encouraged to develop important early stage skills.
Since we are moving at the end of summer we will be sad to see Katie go. No doubt Loius and the rest of our family will stay in touch for years to come....

What lovely feedback thank you, and I will definitely miss Louis.
My son has been attending Little Stars for almost a year, he started around 14 months old and had terrible separation anxiety from me, he rarely settled with anyone including family. Within weeks, he became very eager to go to Katie and without fuss and began crying when I picked him up to take him home! This was a vast improvement in such a small space of time!
Not only does he have more confidence, he is also improving a lot in other skills such as walking and talking. He visits local parks and country parks regularly as well as arts and crafts at home. No activity is forced upon him and he receives excellent care throughout the day.
Katie is very caring, knowledgeable and has great confidence, she treats each child as an individual. I'd highly recommended Katie to any parent who is looking for a high standard of care in a lovely home from home setting.

Thank you very nice to hear.
My children, 10 and 4 stayed with Katie from when she was registered until September last year they thoroughly enjoyed there time with her and have moaned at me because I gave up work no longer requiring child care! I am returning to work shortly and my daughters are delighted to know they will be returning to Katie's care - how to be loved!!
The life there is such it's like coming from home to home, they receive home cooked meals using fresh ingredients from the garden. They collect the eggs from the chickens daily and have used them to bake cakes.
The children are taken out to the park, go on walks, taken to indoor play areas and also to the farm.
I have no hesitation in recommending Little Stars Childminding Service as the care received is excellent!!
