About Me

I am a childminder with a 13yr old boy of my own. I have 20+ years experience of working with children in various settings, eg creches, nursery schools etc. Within my service I offer full or part time care and my hours are flexible, I am also able to pick up and drop off children if required, subject to circumstances, I provide nutritious home cooked meals. Throughout the day I do various activities with the children which also include trips out to the park, zoo, farms and local playgroups. I also have a safe enclosed back garden where the children can play. I have toys to suit various ages of children and also do art activities baking etc. I currently pick up from Samlesbury C of E primary school so I am only able to offer after school care to children who attend there due to needing to be there at pick up time. References available on request. I am also a member of the Preston childminding Network. I am also registered to provide overnight care. I am happy to provide early start times and late collection times due to shift work, hours and fees would be discussed. I currently have a few nurses that use my service. I also accept the 15 and 30hr government funding.

My little boy was only 6 months old when he started with michala, It made going back to work a doodle knowing that my baby is so well looked after by michala. He has only been with michala for the past 5 months and already he has done so much and learnt so much too. He loves going to Michala’s, as soon as we get to the door he gets all excited. I love how all his meals are cooked from scratch and are always healthy too. And how it is set out literally like a nursery all displays up on the walls ect. I also love how we get a daily diary of what he has been doing, ate, toileting ect throughout the day, and most of all the picture. Her son is also so good with the children they all adore him, he is such a caring polite boy. I am a nurse and michala is so flexible around my shifts which helped lots. Michala always goes above and beyond for the children and I am so glad that my little boy is in her care.

Michala well what can I say I was sad my son had to go to school as she looked after my son like her own, I trusted her completely and missed him being with her when it was time to move on x my son did everything and went to lots of activities in the week with lots of lovely pictures of the day which you don’t always get in a nursery setting, she really nurtured him and identified he wasn’t meeting certain targets for his age which really helped us make school aware of concerns over global days, she was patient and made sure she worked with him helping him potty train and hold his knife and fork properly, she always went above and beyond for us and always accommodated us x my son ate lots of nutritional foods all home cooked from scratch
Her own son is a credit to her parenting he is such a pleasant caring boy who is amazing with children xxx

We have had the pleasure of having Michala in our lives for 18 months now. Feels longer as she feels part of your family. She is an amazing childminder and we trust her fully. I wasn't to sure at the beginning of looking for a childminder as I wanted my youngest in nursery, but she was recommended and I'm so glad she had availability. We have not regretted it one bit. There are so many positive I don't have enough time to write them all down but......
Our lives our pretty busy especially at the moment with us being key workers. She is very felixable and accomadating which has been a massive help. She is amazing with our daughter who has developed beautifully since being in her care. Our daughter even has a lovely relationship with the her son and family dogs.she is certainly well looked after!!!!!

My daughter spent her early years with Michela, she is fabulous, always there when you need her. She always varies activities for the children, my child experienced at alot, trips to the farm, pay centres, parks, you name they go. I would say more than if she had attended a nursery. My child was always happy to be here. Michela also provides the children with great meals and healthy snacks. She is certainly someone I would trust. Outstanding service, outstanding care. Thank you
