Who is behind MindingKids?

Hi, my name is Cheryl. I am a proud mum of three and the founder of MindingKids! From my own experience as a childminder, I understand the hard work required in organising and running a professional childcare business. When I first started out, like many, I was overwhelmed with record keeping, attending training courses, planning and preparing activities, not to mention actually caring for children and looking after my own family! I learned very quickly that organisation was the key and designed my own paperwork system to keep everything in order and up to date. I was given an incredible amount of positive feedback about my paperwork and quality of my service both from inspectors, parents of minded children and other fellow childcare professionals. Proud of what I had achieved, I decided to use my own experience to help others and set up MindingKids!

Now more than four years on, I have been overwhelmed with the amount of support for MindingKids and am delighted at the amount of positive feedback I receive. I hope to continue to grow the business and am always happy to hear of any ideas or suggestions for new resources.

Please feel free to browse through the website and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I wish you the very best of luck and to be happy MindingKids!
