About Me

Hi my name is Sophie (Sophie’s childminding leyland) I am an Ofsted registered childminder in leyland. I am 32 years old and live with my husband and two gorgeous boys who are aged 11 years and 7 years. We live in a lovely detached house with a huge garden and only 20 seconds walk away from worden Park! After having my second child it wasn't beneficial for me to go back to work so I decided that I would carry on doing what I love best and look after children but from my own home.
I do all sorts of activities everyday with the children which include: baking, painting, messy play, outdoor exploring!, water play, doing activities for world festivals and crafts :)

I think it's important to have a safe and friendly home from home environment and to build up good relationships with you and your child. I make a learning journey for each child which will have lots and lots of pictures in of your child and also written observations :)
I often attend childrens groups, go to play centres and meet up with other childminders on a weekly basis, It is a great way for the children to meet new people and interact with other children!

My Experience

I have been childminding since 2013 and have a level 3 BTEC National Diploma in Early Years. I previously worked in a nursery for 6 years as a qualified Nursery Nurse. I am also a fully qualified paediatric first aider. Prior to this I was a private nanny for three children.
I have a lot of experience with children of all ages and having two of my own, helps me understand the needs of children.
