About Me

I work alongside my childminding colleague Ros Hurrell in her setting Curious Caterpillars (please also see her profile)

We have a full time vacancy available from April 2020.

We believe that children need to be given the opportunities to explore freely in a safe, stimulating environment in order to reach their full potential. We both hold level 4 qualifications in childcare and have over 20 years experience each.

We provide a homely, caring environment for the children in our setting. The local park is 150 yards from the doorstep and we regularly visit the local toddler groups.

I live in Aldershot with my partner and son. I have worked in childcare for over 20 years and was a registered childminder from 2008 to 2019. I became a childminder when my son started school so that I could continue doing the job i love and it could fit in with the needs of my family. I worked in a day nursery as a nursery nurse before joining Curious Caterpillars in September.

My Experience

I have worked in a nursery for 10 years working my way up the ladder to the role of supervisor. I also ran a pre-school and creche but after 6 months missed actually working with the children so returned to the nursery. I had a childminding setting for 10 years, before returning to work in a nursery setting.

My Qualifications

I have an NNEB Diploma in Nusery Nursing, I also hold my Level 4 in Early Years Practice. I am continually attending courses to further my knowledge and keep up to date with the latest guidence and frameworks changes. I renew my training in First Aid, Safeguarding and Food Hygiene every 3 years. I am currently studying Applying neuroscience to early years practice.

This was the first place my daughter Jaiena started her childcare and I am so pleased with EVERYTHING

She has learnt so much and grown so much.
They are always doing creative projects.

She is always happy when I drop her off and when we pick her up.

Thank you Ros and Claire for your flexibility and great attention to my daughter.

Many Thanks

Settling in the Uk was a huge challenge for us when we moved here and Claire was very patient and showed great care towards my boy.
She is a wonderdul person and one in a million for us - My boy remembers her fondly.
