My name is Collette Hatton. I am 38 years old and have been an Ofsted Registered Childminder since March 2014. Both my Husband and I are CRB (DBS) checked.
I live with Gary and our daughter Poppy Joan (3). We have lived in Woodbridge since 2006. Gary is a Divisional Manager for TradePoint and Poppy is in my full time care at home. Our home has easy access and is surrounded by farmland. We have a beautiful large child safe garden with numerous pieces of play equipment to allow children space to run around and equipment to offer physical challenges. We have a large paddock and stables, which are occupied by three beautiful horses. We also have an enclosed chicken coop, which has 6 hens and a cockerel. All of these animals are great learning aids to allow children to learn about different animals.
As a busy mother, I am well aware of the demands and responsibilities involved in caring for children. I have no doubt that the experiences that I have had already with bringing up my own child help me in my role as a Childminder. I understand how challenging it can be to care for children with varying abilities, needs and interests.
As part of my pre-registration training, I successfully completed the CACHE Level 3 “Understand how to set up a home based childcare service”. The course covered a wide range of subjects including child protection, health and safety, child development and behaviour management. During the course of this year I have obtained my Paediatric First Aid Certificate for babies and young children. I also make full use of the training workshops provided by the Early Years Team and by the local college as they become available, covering a variety of areas from child development and special needs to play experiences and nutrition and hygiene. I believe it is vitally important to continue to further my training and refresh my skills in order for me to provide a good quality childcare service. The hourly rate for childminding is £4.50 during school and £5 before and after school. The hourly rate for babysitting is £7.50.
I am a full time mother of a very inquisitive little girl, who loves to test her boundaries and needs to learn new things every day!!

Collette's childminding service is a very professional and trustworthy. my daughter goes there twice a week and enjoys every minute of it. They do so many activities and go many places which is nice for the children. my daughter always asks to go see Collette and poppy (her daughter) all the time which makes me trust my daughter enjoys her time there.
I would highly recommend collette our little boy loves going & i feel at ease knowing that he enjoys it, the playroom is lovely, i love the fact she does lots of activities with the children as being at work it can be a struggle to fit in all the toddler groups etc! Was certainly our best choice in choosing collette x
