About Me

Hi, my name is Claire, I am an Ofsted rated Outstanding childminder. I live in Harrogate with my partner,my two children and our dog. (Loki, who is a gorgeous teddy bear Cavapoo who the children insist is Waffle the dog from Cbeebies)

I'm a happy, bubbly and positive person. I love spending time with my boys exploring with them and having fun. I also enjoy the outdoors, being creative and baking.

I am situated on Spa Lane in Starbeck which in the centre of Starbeck near the train station. I am very lucky to have such fantastic facilities for the children to enjoy on my doorstep. (Parks, local library, church, sure start centre, soft play, woods, river walks and varioys transport options other than just my car.) My house is very homely with a large living room dining room with plenty to do for the children. I have a small enclosed garden which is well equiped for endless play and exploration for the children to enjoy and awide range of toys and experiences all year round whatever the weather.

As well as having plenty to do at home we also go on regular outings including visits to the libraries, play groups, Harlow Carr, Fountains Abbey and play centres to name a few.

As with being a childminder I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (National Curriculum) for all children from birth to 5 years. I am also a registered Forest childcare provider, I believe the environment is the best resource you can ever provide for a child with its endless learning possibilities to explore which is perfect for every child's curious minds. To provide the best care I possibly can for the children I look after and their families I work closely with them, lots of communication and listening to their needs to provide a safe, happy and caring environment.
