About our tiney childminder

Having recently left teaching after 30 years, I have missed spending time with young people and encouraging creativity. Realising that the childcare crisis is getting no better since I needed it myself and knowing that families can struggle with work hours clashing with school run times, I felt that the stars aligned 🌟 to lead me to train to be a childcare provider for local families. It's a win-win for myself and my families and I am excited to be on this new adventure 💜.

In this neighbourhood

Close to country parks such as Baggeridge and Himley and local sanctuary Brockswood, we are in a prime location for outdoor as well as indoor enrichment. Our local village-type environment means that trips to the shops can be safely made on foot and there are lovely and safe parks nearby. If staying closer to home, we have a good-sized garden for outdoor play and animal antics with the poodles 🐩 😀.

What others are saying about this home...

A.R.

Karen is a lovely lady who taught both ****** and ****. They both thought she was wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen to those of you who may be looking for 5+ childcare, especially if your little ones love arts and crafts and animals! 🐶🎨🧶

S.

You are simply the best ever and I’m so glad ****** and myself have you in our lives xx

P.D.

Before starting childminding, Karen was a teacher. As part of this role, Karen was my first mentor when I was training to teach. She was a kind and caring teacher, and always friendly, fair and warm towards the children, even when she had to be firm. If we lived closer, I would definitely have wanted my children to have Karen as their childminder.

L.W.

I have worked with Karen in both the capacity as a teacher, and as a support worker for young people with mental health needs. She is an incredibly caring, supportive and hardworking lady, with the ability to love all children as she would her own. Her care and compassion are second to none. The highest praise I could give to Karen..... If I ever need a child minder for my little girl, she would be my first choice, without a doubt.

S.L.

Karen is a kind and gifted teacher, supported by many years of experience. She will ensure that your child thrives in her care.

Z.J.

Karen inspired me to be the individual I am today. She helped me find my love of French and languages and made learning FUN, which is the most important thing of all 💓

M.E.

I have worked with Karen as a teacher. She is kind compassionate and has a good rapport with children. She is greatly missed by the children she taught and the staff she worked with. I wish you all the best in your new venture 😊

A.K

I will second that, we miss her at school she was great with the kids. You're very lucky if Karen takes care of your children xx

L.L.

I have worked with Karen in a school setting and would totally trust her to not only look after, but also nurture and entertain ( with her wonderful sense of humour) any child. Karen has a warm heart and a naturally caring nature. 💯 recommendation from me!

A.S.

When I saw Karen was becoming a childminder my eyes lit up! I hoped my son might be able to go to her for wrap around care when he starts school. Alas she is working in my Mum’s post code and not mine but otherwise I wouldn’t have hesitated x

A.G.

I worked with Karen when teaching. She is a hugely creative, fun and energetic person who cares passionately. She has real ‘heart’ as well as a sense of fairness. I know my children would have loved having her as a childminder.
