About Me

Only currently available for babysitting or ad hoc weekends

My name is Kiya, I am kind, friendly, enthusiastic and hard working with a passion for working with children. I am active, organised and like to consider myself very easy to get on with.

I have worked with children for 16 years, as an Ofsted registered childminder for over 7 years but currently (and previously) as a nanny. I absolutely love my job! I find it so rewarding to be a part of such an amazing journey through each milestone and the incredible bonds made with the families I care for. To me my job is about offering support, flexibility, care and education to the babies, children and families I work with.

I have experience working with families with multiple children from newborn right up to teenagers and young adults (although have primarily worked with 0-8’s.)

I believe in offering a wide range of activities and experiences to help nourish a child's development and support them the best I can, to follow their own interests and encourage independence, development and exploration of a child’s growth. I enjoy cooking and baking and am happy to also help with light housework and gardening (lockdown has given me green fingers!).

Anything else you'd like to know please feel free to ask me! I’m happy to talk on the phone or arrange a zoom call.

I drive with my own car and full clean license and am Ofsted registered. I can accept childcare voucher schemes

Kiya looked after my daughter for over 2 years, both as a 1-1 day nanny and, later, in her childcare setting with a number of other children.
She possesses a wonderful nurturing personality and Nellie quickly developed a close bond with Kiya. I felt 100% comfortable leaving Nellie in her care. I was kept fully informed of daily activities and my daughter's individual progress - all clearly linked to nationally recognised benchmarks for child development. The activities Kiya organised were both fun and educational. Nellie loved going and would always talk excitedly about what she had done. Kiya was never too busy to answer any questions I had and always talked knowledgably about matters relating to children (she gave me tips and useful information relating to behaviour, health, nutrition, speech development etc).
I would highly recommend Kiya to anyone seeking childcare.
My daughter still talks about her with great fondness even though she has not been in her care for a while now. She has clearly made a long lasting impression on her and I can't thank Kiya enough for playing such an important part in Nellie's life so far.

Can't recommend Kiya enough - looked after two of our children at different ages and both couldn't wait to go to the setting! Kiya creates a calm and nurturing environment that helps every child in the setting feel secure. Both children always commented on how much fun they had in Kiya's care - there was always such a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, always creative and we always felt that the children were in amazing hands.

Highly recommend this beautiful person to look after your precious little people. She is the most kind natured, big hearted girl who makes every child she spends time with want to be in her company. Kiya has looked after my children on many occasions from small troublesome toddlers to now in their teens, her warmth and love towards every child she looks after is outstanding. She is professional and a great communicator and your children will love her.

Kiya cared for our children for many years and prior to that our niece. She has an excellent flare for caring for children. A very kind, calm and caring approach. Our children were always extremely well cared for, learnt so much and always happy at drop off and collection. To this day many years later they still refer to places they visited with Kiya and hold such fond memories of all the fun experiences that were provided. The setting was dedicated to the needs of the children with both inside and outside play areas, plenty of structure and routine and fair expectations with appropriate discipline. An amazing start to any child’s experience of a childcare setting.

Thank you Stacey! Treasured every minute with your girls and hope we'll always stay in touch! x

I have a 14 month old baby boy who has been looked after by Kiya for almost four months. When I went back to work I placed him in a nursery that was rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Although the staff were very good with the children I found that a nursery environment did not suit us for various reasons. My son is very inquisitive and needs a lot of close supervision. He was always coming home with a bump of his head! Also, the nursery nutrition was not as good as I expected and Williams daily report always stated that he had not eaten his meals or finished his bottles. He was also always sick which cost me a lot of leave days!

I was always worried about my son when I was at work - and I was worried that my work would be effected by this. We decided to look for alternative childcare and starte dto visit different childminders. We met some lovely people but no-one seemed to offer the type of childcare that we were looking for. We wanted our son to be in an environemnt that had the structure and educational aspects of a nursery but in a smaller, more homely environement. We had just about given up hope when we found Kiya.

I was very impressed with Kiya when I first met her. She was very well presented, professional and immediately started to interact with my son. Her kind and fun personality appealed to my son immediately and they seemed to hit it off quickly. He loves going to Kiya and always comes home smiling and chatting. She takes him to the park a lot, which he loves and her passion for children really shows in the way she interacts and plays with him. He has learnt a lot from Kiya in the time she has looked after him. No more head bumps and he always finishes his bottles and food - because Kiya takes the time to ensure he does.

Another plus is that I now have piece of mind that my son is in a safe and nurturing environment and that Kiya really cares about his well being. She is intelligent, kind, fun, friendly and has loads of common sense. I don't hesitate to leave him in her care and cannot recommend her highly enough. Her fees are also very reasonable and offer great value for money. She is very flexible and has often helped me out at the last minute. If I hadn't met Kiya when I did I would undoubtedly have had to give up work to look after my son.
