About Me

I have been a registered childminder for 10 years, I live with my partner and we have 2 sons aged 13 years and 4 years. We also have 3 cats and 2 guineapigs.
I have looked after children from the age of 4 months to 11 years. I offer FREE ENTITLEMENT for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
I organise day trips, visit local play groups, outdoor activities, painting, cutting out and making things, gardening and cooking. I provide a warm and friendly environment which children can play. I have a decent size garden, we go to the park and go on nature walks, we do water play and plant seeds in the summer. In holiday time I organise trips out. We also meet up with other childminders and go to toddler groups. Inside we have imaginative play, dressing up, music, cooking, and creative activities. I also provide healthy snacks and meals if needed.
I can also drop off and collect from local nursery, preschools and primary schools within local and surrounding area.

My Experience

During this time I have learnt and come to understand a great deal about children; the various stages of development, how they behave, how they acquire knowledge and skills, how they build an understanding of the world around them, the basic ingredients needed to meet the challenges that face them as they grow. I am aware of what is required of me to assist their development in their early years.
I have seen and experienced the many difficulties, problems, concerns and worries that arise for parents and children and work closely with the parents to overcome these challenges in a positive way.
