About Me

Please message me your requirements.and for more information.


I have been an Ofsted Registered childminder for more than 18 years.
I offer a home from home, calm and loving environment. I cater for children from 4 months upwards. I encourage children to play and learn as they would at home whilst having fun. I visit local baby/toddler groups on a daily basis where the children can interact with other children, play and join in the many activities. I have a spacious, well equipped playroom which caters for children of all ages. Activities include music, singing, role play, cooking, painting, messy play and lots more. There is a wide selection of toys and resources for the children to choose from as they wish. This leads into a large secure garden with sand pit, water tray, sit and ride toys and a play house
I also visit local parks, farms, library singing/rhyme time sessions, fun tubs and places of interest and fun for the children.

I provide healthy snacks, meals and drinks.

Each child is given a learning journal to keep track of their development, display, photos and examples of artwork/pictures they have made. Also each child has a Day Diary to record what we have been doing each day for parents to read and share comments.

The children in my care have a fun filled day and really enjoy themselves. I am happy to meet parents in my setting and show them what we do. I have many references available to view.

Please feel free to message or telephone with any questions you may like to ask..

Hello. I am a mother of two that lives in Southgate, Crawley. I have Spina Bifida Occulta and find it very difficult to get my two children to school and Play school and back again. (The school is uphill and putting a lot of strain on my back) I am looking for someone to take my children to school each morning. And pick my son up in the afternoon. My son (5) goes to Southgate Primary and my Daughter (2) goes to Rainbows preschool next door. I am willing to pay whatever the cost because I am struggling and don't want my son to have any more unauthorised absense because of me. I have spoken to the school transport and because I am within 2 miles of the school they are not able to help. I also don't have any family in the area. I hope this is something you may be able to help with. Thank you.

Michelle has been my childminder for Rebecca from the age of 8 months old until 4 years. Michelle provides a loving and caring environment and high level of education for all ages.
Michelle reqularly runs themes/projects with the children running some weeks concentrating on primary subjects such as shapes, colours, numbers, plants and nature and actively encourages the children to get involved, ask questions and learn. She takes the children to playgroups, sing clubs, parks, libraries and play areas on a daily basis. I strongly think this has helped shape Rebecca into the outgoing, forward and clever little girl she is today and the transition from childminder to school will be a smooth one as Michelle has ensured Rebecca is already in a structured, active and social environment from such an early age.
Rebecca really loves Michelle and I could not have coped without her. She has been my support and 'second mum' to Rebecca over the years and been flexible, accommodating and willing to help every single day.
Michelle has years of experience and is such a lovely woman. Both Rebecca and I will miss her.
I recommend Michelle and feel blessed she has helped me bring Rebecca ut these past years.

I feel so fortunate to have found such a lovely caring childminder for my son.When we both met Michelle we were made to feel very welcome and my son made himself at home very quickly loving all the toys and equipment Michelle had. He was happy to left for the introductory sessions and enjoyed himself very much with an aray of things he had made to show me on my return.

Michelle shows him alot of affection and the other children in her care are lovely too. I am sure he will be very happy in the future.
I would definately recommend Michelle to any other parent seeking childcare. Just go round for a chat and see for yourself.
