Childminder in Enfield
Female Member since Nov 2009 Last Updated Feb 2022 Last Login 27 Jun 2022
I am a mother of 4 children aged 21,30,33,35
I thoroughly enjoy working with children as I find it both fulfilling and rewarding. It is important to me that the children within my care are happy, settled and stimulated. I regularly take the children to the library, soft play areas, toddler groups (if appropriate) and the local parks, as it is my aim to offer a home from home environment.
I have been a registered childminder for the past 16years working with children aged 3 months to eleven years of age.
Ofsted registered. Up to date qualifications in First Aid, Epipen, Safeguarding and Child Protection, Food Hygiene and integration.
I offer full and part time care along with emergency care, providing space is available at the time. My hours are 6am -6.30pm. Weekends are also available, but this is very limited.
I drop off and pick up children from schools and nurseries in the Winchmore Hill and Enfield areas.
Hello to all key workers I am here to support and have availability. Please call to discuss further. Look forward to hearing from you.

Kims has been a home from home for Kaia since she started going aged 10 months old. (now 2.5yo) She always comes home excited and happy about what she has done that day and has formed a lovely group of friends there. Kim takes the children to a really wide range of parks, outdoor spaces, activities and groups and I'm always very comfortable with her approach to learning, getting the kids out and about as well as doing activities.
We hope to stay there as long as we can, and feel very lucky that we found such a great childminder who our daughter loves to spend time with

Elissa, thank you for your kind words and for sharing them with others. I'm pleased to hear that Kaia considers my setting as home from home as that was the aim of my business when I started 14 years ago.
Having had four children of my own (now adult), I strongly believe in encouraging the children within my care to feel that they are within a safe and homely environment, ensuring they feel comfortable and secure which is essential to their development.
Without a doubt I would recommend Kim as a wonderful childminder to anyone. Kim is child friendly, parent friendly, reliable and flexible.Most importantly my 11 year old loves being looked after by her and we are happy working parents, safe in the knowledge that our son is being cared for by someone like Kim.

I am so happy to hear that your son loves coming to me as much I love looking after him. He is a polite and well mannered boy and is always a pleasure to have around.
Kim has been a wonderful childminder to my 2 boys, aged 12 and 5yrs for the last 2-3 years and I wholeheartedly recommend her to all parents. She has a big, clean house and garden and lots of toys for children to play with. She feeds them properly and once I left them there, I knew they were safe. This was very important to me as a busy GP because I did not have the time to keep checking on them. I also felt confident that she knew my kids and understood them. It seems she just keeps getting better and better, taking them to more interesting places like the swimming pool, using an assistant where necessary, getting a large roomy vehicle when required, being flexible when I needed to be flexible. Now I am looking for a nanny as our needs have changed with changes in my career and my younger child now at school. I am still in contact with Kim and intend to use her outstanding services wherever possible.
My son has been with Kim since he was 9 months old, he is now almost 3. He absolutely loves going to Kim's and always enjoys his time there. He is very happy with Kim and has grown very attatched to her since he started there.
Kim is very accomodating and will always do what she can to fit in around everyones time schedules. Kim has a lovely home environment with lots of space, indoors and out, for the children to play together. Kim is very caring and i feel my son is in very safe hands with her. Kim has a very calm nature about her and i think this is really good for the kids. I am very happy having Kim as a childminder.
Excellent childminder, would recommend to anyone!
Kim is a dream childminder to any child. She provides a wonderful home environment where my little girl loves to play, as well as a lovely garden. There are plenty of toys and kids seem settled and comfortable there which makes me feel assured that my daughter is in the right place. Often, she takes them out to soft play and the park which keeps the kids happy! My daughter is happy in her care and as a mother I feel secure that Kim is taking good care. Would recommend to any parent.
