Kathleen is a lovely childminder with an outstanding report by Ofsted. She has a warm, nurturing nature and provides a lovely home for the children. She takes the children out everyday (weather permitting) to local playgroups, the library, parks/woods, and they also have the opportunity to play in her garden. She cooks delicious healthy meals. Kathleen is flexible and has great communication skills; we trusted her with the care of our child completely! My child absolutely thrived under her care for several years, and enjoyed interacting with her and the other children. Kathleen is multilingual and also spoke to my child in Mandarin. We were very sad to leave and only did so because we were moving. We would definitely recommend her!
Our daughter has been going to Kathleen (Dragon & Frog childminding service) since she was a year old and only stopped recently when she got a place at the school nursery. Although Kathleen isn't that local to us, when we met her we knew she would be just right and was worth the extra bit of travel time!
We were instantly reassured and enthused by her calm and kind personality, and her attention to detail with structuring the day for the kids – eg Kathleen often organises a trip to playgroups or local playgrounds.
As well as English, Kathleen and her kids speak French and Mandarin and it's lovely to hear a range of languages in the house – my daughter picked up some French during her time there.
The house and garden are lovely, and from the first day we were happy to leave our daughter with her. Our daughter loved going there and bonded with Kathleen's kids and was sad to leave. We hope to stay in contact. Thanks for everything Kathleen!
Kathleen looked after both my children regularly (my son between ages 2 and 5, and then after school pickups, and my daughter between ages 1 and 3) and still does occasional ad hoc childminding for both of them. When they started, they both settled in quickly and then loved spending time with her. She was always very creative in daily activities: playing games, taking them to various playgrounds, etc. When they stopped going they really missed spending time with her, and often pointed at her house as we passed it saying they wanted to go and play at her place. My experience as a parent is that she was always positive, reliable, her house was always clean, and she gave me plenty of feedback about how my children were doing. I thoroughly trusted her every time I left my children with her (and still do). Highly recommend!
My son started with Kathleen before he was 1 yo and it was an amazing experience. Her care and engagement were clear and he felt at ease with her. He was always stimulated and we could see a spike on his development.
She is an incredible childminder and person.
We loved her.
I've just asked my daughter for a review to put on here...
'The best childminder EVER, I love going there, the food is delicious!'
My now 9 year old daughter and 7 year old son have been looked after by Kathleen for the past 5 years and I would 100% recommend her. She's kind, patient, engaging and fun. The kids have a wonderful time there as vouched by my daughter above. I feel confident that they are well looked after and feel very lucky to have found her!
