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!
We viewed many childminders when looking for someone to care for my son in 2018. When my husband and I met Kathleen, we knew instantly that she was the perfect choice. She was very reassuring and understanding and offered a number of settling in sessions as this was the first time our son was to be left in the care of someone else. Kathleen has a lovely home-from-home environment with lots of educational toys and books, good indoor space and a large garden. My son was always very happy to be dropped off in the mornings as he was given lots of different activities to do throughout the day, taken to parks and playgroups and given healthy food options.
He also enjoyed spending time with Kathleen’s children who were always very caring and nurturing.
I would highly recommend this setting and wouldn’t hesitate to use Dragon and Frog childminding again in the future.
My son has been looked after by Dragon & Frog Childminding Service. He enjoys spending time there and is always fed healthy food. My son has built a good relationship with the childminder and the children in her care. He always looks forward to going there, to play with all the toys. I would highly recommend Kathleen and was very happy with her attentive care.
