My name is Kerrie Thomas, I am 45 years of age and I am married to Andrew. We have two boys of our own, George who is 14 & Ellis who is 20. Both our boys are well educated and have both attended Maidstone Boys Grammar School – George is currently in year 10 & Ellis is a Retail Manager.
We have two Yorkshire Terrier dogs who are brothers and are 13 years old, they both love a game and are extremely friendly. They are very good at alerting us when there is somebody at the door ?
They have their own space indoors should they need time on their own. They are very active and enjoy playing with a ball and having fun in our garden.
I offer a home from home surrounding as i like every child to feel secure, comfortable and safe when visiting our home. I plan educational activities daily to ensure that children develop to the best of their abilities.
We have a large garden with a small secure pond which I use as a learning area to teach the children about nature and wildlife – the pond is well established and has fish, frogs and newts.
I have my own car which is suitably insured for business use which enables me to explore the world around us with the children for example – zoo’s, parks, woodlands, beaches etc. These outings can be arranged with the appropriate parental consent.
I have previously worked with adults and children with severe learning disabilities and was extensively trained with several skills which included administering specialized medication, Epilepsy control and Challenging behaviour.
I have a significant understanding of Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and Diabetes management.
