Hello, I'm Kimberley Phipps, I am an Ofsted registered Childminder located in Daisy Hill, Westhoughton and have been Childminding since 2011.
I have always loved caring for children, so a career in Childminding seemed a natural choice for me. My primary goal is to contribute positively to a child’s life, whatever that may involve and I see that working WITH parents is one of the most essential elements of Childminding.
We have a lovely cat called Buxton, he tends to keeps himself to himself. We also have a Beagle called Lola and a Spaniel called Bella. We have had both dogs since before I began Childminding. They are very well natured and great with kids.
I have had lots of experience with children of all ages. I have cared for well over 100 families since I began Childminding. I also have nine nephews and nieces, all of whom I have looked after from birth. Their ages range from 0 to 26. I also have 3 god children who i have minded.
I am passionate about Childminding, I want to give the children I care for a fantastic experience and the best possible start in life. Whether you're a new parent returning to work, or re-organising your childcare, it isn’t easy. Knowing that your child is being cared for as you would want them to be, enables you to, hopefully, make that transition more smoothly.
Well, that's a bit about me, if you would like to know anything else I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can contact me here.
