Karen's Little Kids
Mission Statement: "Working in partnership with parents to meet the needs of the children"
My name is Karen and I live with my husband Carl and our daughter Rebecca. I work with 2 Assistants: We live in the Leeds 15 area on a regular bus route and within easy walking distance to the train station, local shops, library and park. We make regular use of the park as it has equipment for toddlers and school age children.
I love children and hope that I can offer a safe and friendly environment for your child to learn and develop in. I believe in learning through play and have many activities that should make learning a pleasurable experience for your child.
My garden is completely enclosed and no-one can gain entry unless I let them in! The children will be out in all weathers, playing in the snow, jumping in puddles, kicking leaves, playing in the paddling pool and having picnics in the sun. We spend a lot of time outdoors in the warmer months and I keep the children safe from the sun using a gazebo and a parasol, I have just recently had artificail grass laid which means we can play out whatever the weather!
My home has been made child friendly with cupboard/drawer locks, safety gates etc., and I have plenty of toys and activities to keep your child occupied throughout the day.
Both my husband and I have enhanced CRB Certificates and all my Assistants have enhanced DBS Certificates and we all have our 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Certificates (refreshed in 2016 & 2017). I am insured with Morton Michel and can mind over Early Years Children and over 8's.
I am registered with Ofsted. I am a Category 1 Childminder and comply with the EYFS Statutory Framework and the General Childcare Register regulations. My Assistants are registered with Ofsted.
