Childminder in Wokingham
|Ofsted Registered||First Aid Training|
Hi :-) I'm an Ofsted Registered Childminder in Wokingham. I'm a wife and mum to my two lovely boys aged 13years and 6years. We have a very sweet, friendly, gentle Labrador dog called Fletch. W have a cat called Jemima and 4 goldfish. We welcome children into our loving, warm, comfortable home. We have a cosy lounge and a spacious warm kitchen, massive (18ft x 10ft) light and airy playroom which is beautifully equipped but also very useful for lots of messy play. Big toyboxes brimming with toys for girls and boys. I have a lovely big enclosed and private garden with Multi swing and a seperate slide , mini trampoline, see-saws , tricycles a plenty.
I have been child minding for 16 years now and I just love it so very much. I have been on numerous Paediatric First Aid courses.
The little ones and I tend to go to two toddler groups per week. These toddler groups are carefully chosen to bring out the best in the children in my care. The groups are not too big, but lots of children to mix with and lots of different toys to play with , also each has an arts and craft table.
I love doing lots and lots of arts and craft with the children at home too. Also we enjoy baking cakes and biscuits.
We love going for walks in the countryside and visiting the play areas.
My youngest son goes to St Teresa's School in Wokingham so I like to do my school runs there and also Rose Street Nursery in Wokingham.
In my 16 years of child minding and of course also being a mum, I have cared for babies from birth and lots of babies throughout tiny babyhood and through their toddler time and all the way through till teens. I have cared for children with all kinds of personalities. So many wonderful individuals. All of the chidlren in my care are welcomed with open arms.

Heather has been looking after our daughter for a year now. She went to Heathers after an unsettled period at another childminder. Heather does everything I would do with our daughter,long walks,jumping in puddles,baking,craft,singing and dancing. Zoo loves it. Heather is like her other mum! She leaves every morning with a big smile on her face and often cries when it's time to come home.......you can't say anything better than that!
