About Me


- This provision is good
Safeguarding children is at the heart of the childminder's practice. The childminder and
her assistant have a good knowledge of their responsibilities to ensure children are kept
safe and protected from harm. The implementation of robust policies and procedures
successfully promotes children's safety and well-being.
The childminder and her assistant have a thorough understanding of how to plan
activities, which help children to learn and develop, based on their observed needs.
Children are happy, sociable and confident, and thoroughly enjoy their time in a relaxed
and stimulating home. They develop good relationships and close emotional
attachments with the childminder and her assistant. As a result, they show high levels
of self-esteem and security within the provision.
Partnerships with parents and other early years providers is good and makes an
effective contribution to meeting all children's individual needs. Self-evaluation is used
well to continuously raise standards and drive improvement forward, for the benefit of

15 & 30 hrs free early years entitlement available for 2, 3 & 4 year olds!!!!
I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I have completed the relevant and most up to date courses.

I have been married for 21years and have 2 lovely boys, aged 12 and 20years.
I have loved and am still enjoying every minute of seeing how my boys are growing up, and seeing how their little personalities change through their childhood.

We live in a detached house with a fully enclosed garden on the Grosvenor park estate in Crewe. We want your child to feel like part of the family and welcome in all areas of our home.

We have a small shichon dog, lovely natured, all the children love him.

I believe from the experience of raising my own children that i can provide your child, whatever their age with a warm, secure and enjoyable environment that will help them develop and learn throughout their childhood.

I try to keep things flexible as possible to take into account yours and your child's needs.

A settling in period can be arranged to ensure your child is happy and reassured on their first few visits to me, i can also arrange a visit to see you and your child in your own home, which maybe less un-nerving for your child.

My Experience

I dont think that there is any better experience than raising your own children. At present i have 7 children (at varying times/days throughout the week) under my care as well as my own.

My husband is registered as my assistant. Pete is CRB checked, holds a Full 12hr paediatric first aid certificate, has training in safeguarding and EYFS.
Pete runs his own driving school and has experience training 5 - 14yrs in football.

I will provide a daily diary for each child if required, this will consist of anything from nap times, what they have had to eat, nappy changes, what toys they have played with..............

An secure on line account is also available, to record your child's learning and development progress whilst in my care, daily diary, photos, videos, information, newsletters & much more.....

A typical day will consist of:
Toddler Groups
Outings to Park / Wheelock Farm/ Fruit picking / chicken farm/
Lakemore Country Park
Art and Craft
Child Initiated Play
Rhyme Time
Story Time
Sensory Play
and lots lots more....................

We have a large variety of indoor and outdoor toys and equipment all in excellent condition for all ages (birth up to 10 years)

Clare and Pete look after my almost 2 year old little girl. She literally skips in the door to them in the morning without a backward glance at me! I was so worried about finding a nice setting for her but Clare put my mind at ease from the start and my daughter absolutely loves her. I cannot speak highly enough of Clare and Pete. We are so lucky to have found such a wonderful home away from home for our little girl.
