I have a 12 hr paediatric first aid certificate and food hygiene award. I have lots of written references from parents and the children to be viewed in person. I have public liability insurance. I employed several qualified assistants who work alongside me who are also registered with Ofsted and have DBS checks and first aid certificates. I currently have availability for children school aged 5-12 years old 7.30 am-9 am and 3- 6.00 pm and I also look after children during school holidays as a Beach School Practitioner. I take the children to the beach and learn about the natural environment whilst having fun. We encourage the children to be outdoors all year round and the garden has an undercover area and the mud kitchen. I encourage the children to play outside as much as possible as it's a great learning environment with lots of space for the children to get plenty of Fresh air and exercise.

I drop off and collect from Oaklands infant school and Moulsham. I cover extended holidays at st Cedds, New Hall, Widford Lodge and St Anne's independent schools. I live in Old Moulsham.
