About Me

My last inspection (February 2016) was rated Outstanding by OFSTED. I can provide references from parents of previously minded children.

Please note: Updated January 2020. I am currently not taking on any children due to family commitments at this time.

I have returned to working from home as an Ofsted Registered Childminder after working in childcare for many years, from managing Local Authority nurseries to inspection and regulation. Family members are all cleared as suitable through DBS police checks and my home is a safe environment. We have a cat that is friendly and safe to be around young children.

I organise many activities and children benefit from excellent quality care; accessible toys and equipment; and local amenities, such as the Children's Centre; the park and my lovely garden. We also attend toddler sessions; Forest School; Gymnastics; and enjoy an active lifestyle visiting parks and undertaking various activities.

I offer excellent partnership working and plan to meet children's individual needs within the Early Years Foundation Stage. I am registered for Tax Free Childcare; to take two, three and four year old children under the free entitlement scheme and I accept vouchers as payment if preferred.

Parents are welcome to view my service and introduction visits can be arranged prior to admission.
