About Me

AVAILABLE and hoping for 3days a week ‘just not Tuesdays’

I can be Flexible

Childminding since 2001, I took a year out and worked in a nursery. I have also worked as a care assistant within a hospital and a residential home for the elderly. I have 2 children, a son of 38 who is a mechanic and a daughter of 29 who is a nanny.
I have 3 grandchildren now and I look after the youngest on Wednesdays.

I have 2 very tolerant cats!
I live in a three bedroomed house in Surbiton with a small garden which is filled with garden actvities for the children to enjoy when the weather allows. I am based in central Surbiton within walking distance to the station and easy driving distance of the A3.

I drive my own car that I’m happy to use.

My Experience

I have been a registered childminder since 2001. I took a year out in 2005 to experience working in a nursery based in Surbiton but decided that I was better suited to childminding as I enjoy the one to one contact with children and the flexiablility to spend as much time with a child as suits their needs. I also feel that continuity of care is vital in a childs early years and helps them feel settled and secure. I attend playgroups weekly which allows the children in my care to develop social skills whilst having fun. I also meet regularly with other childminders which allows the children to build up friendships with other minded children.

We want to give the highest possible recommendation for Kim. She has looked after our son for about 2 years now (from when he was about 1), Tuesdays to Fridays, and he could not be happier. Each day is full of activities, either at her well-equipped home, play group, the local park and ponds, soft play venues, pet shop etc. Under her loving supervision he has learnt plenty (when we bought his first bike he already knew how to ride one!), eaten increadibly well and has remained a happy and stimulated little boy. Each morning we tell him he is going to see Kim which prompts an "hooray". Each evening, when we pick him him up he is beaming, full of stories of what has happened today. We trust her completely and feel very lucky to have met her. Very happy to discuss further if anyone considering her services wishes to contact me. (Gary Smith 15/8/13)
