My name is Kelly Tranham.
I am an Ofsted registered childminder living
in Old Coulsdon, Surrey with my husband
and our dog Baxter.
I have places available for children to mind.
I am authorised to offer free entitlement funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
I have been involved in looking after children from a young age. When I was 16, I started to babysit on my own, and worked for a number of different families. I would have sole responsibility of children of ages ranging from 0-15 years. During this time I gained valuable experience regarding all aspects of childcare.
I have since worked in a nursery for 3 years, then as a nanny for 6 years. In my first nanny job, the family moved to New Zealand permanently. I was subsequently offered a job to carry on to work as their nanny in New Zealand, for a year, which I accepted.
I understand that, for parents, children are the most precious things in the world and it is very important that the right setting is found for them. I aim to provide a home-from-home environment for the children in my care. I feel it is vital that I work closely with parents, communicating in a variety of ways, in order to be able to make the transition from the child's home to my home run as smoothly as possible, so the child feels happy and at ease.
