About Me

Hi, my name is Carol, I live in Porchester Road, Kingston Upon Thames, Close to Norbiton Station and Kingston Hospital. I have 3 grown up children of my own and have been a Registered Child Minder for 14 years. I offer a fun, loving, learning environment within my home setting. I attend many playgroups and drop-ins and Children's Centres and take the children on regular trips out to parks, farms, the river, soft play centres and much more. I am a member of the Forest School Association and we have annual passes for Hobbledown farm, Chessington World of Adventures and regularly spend time playing outdoors and exploring the animals etc. I build up strong relationships and work together with parents to offer the best home from home care and early learning opportunities possible for each individual child.

My Experience

I previously worked in a pre-school nursery for 10 years, and I worked for 3 years as a Tutor for pregnant teenagers, Teaching them in a lifeskills program which included learning about their pregnancies, birth and childcare, and I have lots of experience working with young mums and their children. I have experience as a 'Support Child Minder' offering help and support to new Childminders in their Registration Process and their 1st year as a Child Minder and spent a number of years on the commitee of Kingston Childminding Association.

My Qualifications

I have a level 3 qualification in Childcare, I am First Aid Trained, and have attended lots of training covering all aspects of E.Y.F.S. Safeguarding children, Equal opportunities, Autism, Health and Safety and Risk Assessments within the home setting and much more. My last Ofsted inspection was June 2019 and I was happy to retain my GOOD grading. I have many lovely references from previous and existing families and would be happy to arrange for you to contact any, if you would like to ask them any questions regarding the care that I provide.

My Availability

My hours of work can be variable between 7am and 6.00 pm. Mon - Fri (however care outside these hours may be arranged) I would also consider school 'Term Time' only care. I am also registered for overnight care. If spaces are available I am happy to provide 'ad hoc ' care.

Carol is looking after my son the last couple of months. She is brilliant with children, within less than a week my 2 years old son was very settled. This has been so reassuring as I've been able to work without worrying about him. He is happy and content.
Carol has a fantastic understanding of childcare provision, she takes the children to playgroups and has different activities set up each day. As a mum I really couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Carol is sorely missed by me and my little girl. My daughter went to Carol's from the age of 2 years to 4 1/2 years and she absolutely loved her as did I, Carol keeps the kids active, they spend lots of time doing activities, going to the park, the farm are just some examples and she also has plenty for them to do inside. My daughter was always well fed and happy, and Carol was really supportive and flexible with the care she gave. My daughter often didn't want to leave carol's and still asks to go back!!
