About Me

NEWLY REGISTERED as of Monday 17th December 2018 but await certificate.. I have many years experience as a registered childminder as am returning to this career having previously been registered from 1996-2011.

I have a CACHE level 3 qualification in Childminding Practice and a DBS check that is registered with the update service.

In February 2017 I renewed my Paediactric First Aid certificate and have been updating all other necessary training; documents of which can be seen on my profile...updated training includes Paediatric First Aid, level 3 child protection, food hygiene and safety, child sexual exploitation and FGM awareness, Equality and Diversity, ADHD Awareness, Autism Awareness, Dyslexia Awareness, Reflective Practice in Early Years, Setting up your Childminding Service, Supporting Early Language Development, An Introduction to the GDPO, Equality and Inclusion in Early Years, Autism Awareness, Data Protection

I have a massive garden that has recently had a rehaul and a new log cabin which is still work in progress but at the end of my garden which is fenced off. There is still sufficient space for children to play and explore to increase their out door skills. Play areas consist of artificial grass, slides and playhouse which leads into a large decked out area with a small bridge for role and sensory play. Just this half is approximately 6m x 10m so is a reasonable space without having access to the rest of the garden.

Over the previous years I have cared for many children ranging from 3 months old to age 11 when moving onto secondary school and have had 6 of my own children (one of whom had a rare heart condition) so am confident in my daily tasks, activities and small amount of special needs knowledge and all types of care.
I currently live with my 3 children aged 12, 11 and 4 and go to regular activities in the community to stimulate each age and stage of their developments of which I would continue to do with your child/ren along with baking, crafts and more.

I love helping people and am very caring and flexible and open to any communication to resolve issues. I am 100% committed to the things I undertake.
please contact me if you have any questions or think we can help you with your childcare needs
