About Me

Hello, my name is Heather and I live in Chertsey with my partner David.
I live a 5 minute walk from Stepgates Community school and all the local amenities are nearby.

My aim is to offer a warm, loving and safe environment for your child to be cared in. I know how important it is for parents to feel confident and happy with the choices they make for their child, and I will endeavour to treat each child as an individual and tailor their care to their specific likes and needs.

I have a wide range of toys and books and have lots of ideas for fun learning activities. I have a good sized garden for outside play and live close to Chertsey Meads. I have a full driving license and Business class insurance for outings.

I take the children in my care on regular outings to local parks, soft play, libraries and other places of interest to them.

I am very aware of the importance of socialising and giving little ones the opportunity to interact with others, so this is something I build into my weekly care plan.

My Experience

I have over 19 years experience in childcare, mostly working as a nanny and in Day Nurseries. I have cared for children from newborn through to 10 years and I have considerable experience at looking after twins and triplets.

In June 2014 I was graded 'GOOD' in my Ofsted inspection.

Heather picked up and looked after my daughter after school 5 days a week for 3 years, plus had her full time during school holidays. She provided a safe, comfortable and happy environment and my daughter absolutely loved her time there. Heather also provided food every day for a small fee. Heather has always been completely reliable, trustworthy, extremely flexible and is still our first choice for childcare during school holidays! We unfortunately had to seek alternative arrangements after school as my daughter started a different school in September.

My daughter and I would highly recommend Heather as a childminder, we are both sad that unfortunately she is no longer able to go there after school now!

Heather looked after my daughter 4 days a week plus a nursery pick up 1 day a week, and picked my son up from school 5 days a week (and full time during the school holidays). She took my daughter on regular outings, to the local park, soft play (which she loved) and the library. She provided food for both of my kids at a very small price. I only stopped using Heather due to my working pattern changing. Even after I finished with Heather, she would offer her help if I needed it and if she had availability.

Both my children made lovely friends at Heather's and they loved the variety of toys & books she had out each day.

Heather looked after my son two afternoons a week. She picked him up from school and brought him back to her house where she always had activities or toys out which he enjoyed playing with.
Heather always made him feel safe and happy. Heather also made him a nutritious meal which I really appreciated!
Heather has a really good understanding of children's needs.

I would absolutely recommend her as someone's childminder..

Heather is looking after my 3 years old daughter since January this year. She is a lovely person, who consider every aspect of children development, very honest, fliexible and reliable.

She has a nice, warm, spacious house with beautiful garden and children playground. Living room is always full of different toys, books etc.

My daughter is always very excited to go to Heather's house.

I highly recommend Heather and you as well won't be dissapointed.
