Hi my name is Rachel and I am a qualified childminder based in Ferndown. I live in a spacious open plan house opposite the woods which we walk in most day. I have 2 teenage children 1 small dog and 3 cats. I am a true believer that children should be out and about as much as possible so most days (weather dependant) we are outside at parks, beaches, farms, playgroups etc. We also do lots of crafts and cooking.
I have been looking after children as a nanny for about 8 years before fully qualifying as a childminder in 2013. I am fully experienced in looking after babies up to secondary age children. I have been ofsted inspected and graded good. I also have experience in respite care for an autistic child.

My little boy has been going to Rachel for nearly 6 months and he absolutely loves going.
Rachel does so many activities with the children and my son is always excited to go and spend the day with Rachel.
He has learnt so much in a short space of time and has really developed.
Rachel is flexible and I can relax knowing how much fun my little one is having while I’m working!
Rachel is fantastic. She offers all I could ask of a childminder.
She is personable, caring and easy going. As a parent I have zero concerns. I feel 100 percent confident in her abilities and that my son will have a great time.
He has been with Rachel 2 days a week for nearly 2 years and I plan for him to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
He is always excited to go and talks about being there even when he is at home. He has developed massively thanks to Rachel and the interaction he gets with other children in her care.
The children do a whole range of different activities, inside and out and even during 2020 despite the restrictions she has continued to deliver an excellent service.
Our son has been in Rachel’s care 2 days a week since he was 10 months old. Rachel supported him to settle in really quickly and they developed a lovely relationship, now our son can’t wait to visit Rachel each week.
Rachel always makes sure that the children in her care do a variety of activities each week and go out each day.
We have really appreciated Rachel’s flexibility and support during recent months regarding covid-19 and she gave us a clear policy on this.
We feel happy to leave our son in Rachel’s care as he always comes home happy and has a great time.
Thank you Rachel!
Rachel is the very best at what she does, she looked after both of our boys, providing the best support, nurture and education. Rachel gave our boys wonderful memories on their adventures together and we always felt so lucky to have Rachel provide such incredible care in the very best of settings. Rachel gave the boys encouragement and overcame milestones together, gave them confidence and developed their learning journey as well as being so genuinely thrilled for them to see them progressing. Rachel gives the very best of care and reassurance that any family could ask for for their child, truly one in a million!
