My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

Hi, my name is Lindsay and I am an Ofsted registered childminder. My husband and I have two sons, aged 9 and 7, and a sweet little hamster called Tammy.

We have a wide variety of toys, inside and outside in the garden, encouraging development through play. My boys and I enjoy doing activities like painting, sticking, baking, reading books, doing puzzles, building train tracks and singing. We also love playing outdoors and going on outings to the nearby parks and playgrounds, children's centres, the library and the Common.

I aim to make our home a warm, happy, loving and secure environment for children. Any children I look after will be treated like I do my own, getting lots of attention, cuddles, healthy home cooked meals and snacks, fresh air and activities that interest them.

My Experience

I used to work in IT as a web developer. After the birth of my second child I decided to become a stay at home mom and further my passion for working with young children. Having used childcare in the past I understand the anxieties of leaving your little one with someone else and how important it is to find a carer that you like.

I follow the EYFS statutory framework which enables your child to develop in all areas of learning.

Our little girl has been looked after by Lindsay since she was 8 months old and she is now nearly 4 years old. We cannot express enough how happy we have been with the child care provided by Lindsay and the only reason this child care is ending is I am about to go on maternity leave. Lindsay is so kind, calm, consistent and trustworthy and our little girl has been so so happy in her care. I feel that Lindsay treats our daughter like she is one of her own and it has made going to work so much easier. In the whole time we have used Lindsay's child care she has been so reliable, professional and never missed a day of childcare. I work as a teacher so having such dependable childcare has been so crucial to us. Lindsay does such lovely activities with our little girl, always provides healthy home cooked meals and most importantly keeps her safe. Leaving your child with someone you trust so much has enabled me to go back to work for 3 days a week and know that my daughter is happy, safe and well cared for. Lindsay has not only taken such good care of our little girl but she has also taught her so much and we can really see this at home. Lindsay has helped her learn good manners, sharing, early literacy and numeracy skills and such a great range of art and craft activities. Lindsay has kept a fantastic learning journal since our daughter has been with her including lots of photos and documenting her progress, it is so lovely to look back over and see what she has been doing. She also provides a daily diary letting us know what Marie has been up to that day and what she has eaten etc which is so useful. Our little girl is always very happy to be dropped off in the morning and waves me off happily which is such a nice feeling as a Mum. We are so very grateful that our little girl been lucky enough to have been looked after by Lindsay as it has given her such a great, settled start as leaving your little one to go back to work can be so tricky for a parent to do but we have had such a great experience and we feel this is due to the fantastic childcare Lindsay has provided. Our little girl will be so sad to leave Lindsay and her lovely family as she has been such an important and caring part of her early years. We honestly couldn't have been happier with the child care Lindsay has provided and would highly recommend her.
