PLEASE ARRANGE A VISIT IN ADVANCE FOR OUR WAITING LIST 2019 & WE NOW EVEN HAVE A FAMILY FOR 2020 :)
Hi mums and dads!
Thank you for looking at my profile. My name is Kerri, I'm 31 & have two children a daughter who is 8 & my son 3 months.
My daughter loves having the children here and has made some lovely friends not to mention how much all the children love her! I returned to work when my son was 6 weeks old & I’m so happy he has settled with the children.
We have a lovely welcoming home based in Kings road, with a spacious garden and setting with secure gates from both entrances.
We had our recent OFSTED inspection in November 2016 and very proud with our Oustanding grading. We are also very proud being the only childminding setting in Biggin hill to have received Outstanding in all areas.
We care for children from 3montths to 3 years as we do not accept funded hours.
We know that our partnership with parents is essential to create the best learning opportunities for children.
Our knowledge and experience focuses us on encouraging your children to have a possitive attitude to challenge, learning and respect.
We are constantly looking for improvement.
Me and Amy are increasingly aware of our belief in putting the child first.
We are a non smoking setting with nutritional menus to suit our children's needs.
All food is cooked from scratch and followed by a monthly menu.
I have an assistant I employ 5 days a week who is my sister. My sister has all relevant checks, NVQ level 2 and 3 years experience in a previous nursery, the kids love her!
A lot of our parents like that childrens naps do not get disturbed to do the school run as Amy is here.
I am also a backup Foster career for my parents who have been fostering for 11 years.
We are very reliable and at times can be flexible to do extra days if we have space.
We also offer a recommend a friend voucher when you directly recommend a family to us (not just tagged in a post) you will receive a £50 voucher after they have attended 2 months in our setting.
We are very busy with crafts and activities planned around celebration, seasons, weather etc..
We have planning 9 months in advance and follow it weekly. We love to see the childrens faces when they arrive in the mornings :)
News letters are sent out with information on that parents may need to know or reminders of events or activites due and clothes required etc...
We supply water proofs and wellies for outdoor play. Here is where the children are encouraged to take risks, develop confidence and self esteem and explore their natural surroundings.
We plan our holidays a year in advance so it makes parents childcare a lot more easier to arrange.
Children adjust to our routine very quickly and it shows when we are in public too.
Holding hands and good listening is important when we are out and about and we are very proud with all the children in our care.
We have been told by many parents that they can see the difference in their childrens behaviour and development, which is always good to hear :)
I am a big kid myself and full of ideas and love making the children's time here fun, whilst learning through play.
We love working with children and watching them grow. We also provide a learning journey for your child to track your childs development following the EYFS.
The learning journey is something lovely to look back on when they're older as a keep sake <3 x
We also have all childrens next steps on show so parents can see what we are working on and that we can work together on their child's development.
We provide daily diaries so we can communicate at all times.
This consists of food they have eaten, toileting and what we have been up to.
We provide a two year progress check which you will also have with a health visitor as well as a summary every 6 months.
I am always available to contact at any time and know all my parents can come to me if you needed to.
We are lucky to have such great parents to work with xx
We are passionate about our job and when you meet us you will see that too. We enjoy making our own resources and most of the resources we make are from recycled items.
We often watch the children play and observe what they like to do with certain objects to then make it into a resource.
Child led play and learning through play is most important in our setting.
We have references if you would like to see and my ofsted report is online to view.
You are more than welcome to come and visit our home :)
We have a waiting list for parents who are enquiring about childcare months in advance, as we have parents contact us that are expecting.
Unfortunately due to permanent children and children growing up with us we have no before and after school space avaliable.
Please contact me for any information or if you would like to see pictures of my setting and what we do.
I can send either by email or what's app.
Look forward to hearing from you x
We have been registered for 5 years and have worked with some amazing families on their child’s development.
Please contact me x

My daughter started with Kerri and Amy in January and has settled in perfect, I couldn’t be any happier with their service they provide! My daughter absolutely loves going there and that makes me happy! Would 1000% recommend to anyone so glad I found them!
This is the first time my daughter has stayed with anyone outside of my family. She has been going to Kerri for over a month now and i couldn't be happier. She has settled quickly in the warm and friendly environment with Kerri and Amy. I have peace of mind that i can go to work and my daughter's being cared for. I would recommend them to anyone.
Words cannot describe how amazing Kerri and Amy are. Highly recommended! They completely deserve their outstanding OFSTED rating. It is so reassuring to go to work knowing that our daughter is happy and settled. Kerri and Amy have really helped her settle into a routine, and it's great that she is trying so many new foods too.
Kerri is always coming up with new and exciting ideas making everyday an amazing experience for the children :-) Couldn't ask for a better childcare setting
My little boy has been with Kerri and Amy since he was 6 months old and coming up to 14 months old, I couldn't be happier with how he has settled in. We are very lucky to have the Kerri and Amy and feel completely relaxed and confident with the care and service they give to each child and also their parents. I can't imagine finding another minder who puts in the effort they do.
Great menus for the children and also brilliant new ideas for them to do everyday.
Highly recommend if your looking for attention to detail and a trustworthy setting for your child.
Oir daughter joined Kerri's childminding a month ago. She settled in extremely quickly - no tears and has been happy to be dropped off each morning. We are always welcomed with an upbeat smile and Kerri and her sister Amy are clearly amazing with the children. The setting is clean, friendly, structured and most importantly fun. The imagination Kerri has for activities for the children is beyond anything I have ever seen! Our daughter started walking within a week of joining and I believe this is due to Kerri and Amy working with us to really develop our daughters skills and confidence. Communication is always first class and we love seeing and hearing about what our daughter has been up to. We couldnt be happier with the childmining service provided and feel very lucky to have got a space with Kerri and Amy, as they are so popular. Thank you ladies :-)
