Katherine Abbott

Setting open.

I am an experienced Outstanding Ofsted Registered Childminder providing home from home childcare dedicated for Early Years children, aged from birth to school. 

As a parent, when you chose my setting for your child, you can be assured that your child is safe, having fun, learning and developing through play and will be nurtured and supported to develop their unique character and independent skills.

All children in my care develop in partnership with their family, in a caring environment and at their own unique pace. We learn whilst we have fun.  I adhere to the Early Years Foundation Stage, so our play is both child initiated and adult led. 

* Ofsted Inspections - Outstanding 2016.   Outstanding 2011.

* NVQ3 qualified

*Forest Childcare Association

* Reading Quality Improvement Award

* Fourteen years Experience

* References available

*Hygee Wanderlust Training

I am very flexible and try to meet the needs of the families that I work with. Please contact me with any questions.  I would love to help you and your family.

Age range 0 to 4 years.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
