About Me

Hi, I am a newly registered childminder in Lancing, Sompting. I live with my partner Sam, and our 3 children, Ellen,17, Rufus, 7 and Dougie 4. We have an old, fluffy cat and a cockapoo puppy. We have a 3 bed semi with a playroom and a large garden. Our fun and learning will have a large emphasis on creativity, nature and the outdoors. Our activities and experiences will be based on the children's own interests, ideas and developmental stage.

My Experience

I began my childcare 'career' before i left secondary education. I did a lot of babysitting and gained work experience within a nursery school. I continued to study nursery nursing at college before going to study Teaching at university in Brighton. Throughout this time i spent a lot of time in classrooms planning and teaching lessons. In my summer holidays I worked on children's playschemes in the city outskirts of Southampton. I never completed my teaching degree, as i became a mother instead!! I worked for 6yrs as an early years teacher in a nursery in Brighton with the pre-schoolers. I left nursery education to become a gardener.....which i have recently quit....to become a childminder!! I have always loved working with children and am really looking forward to beginning a new journey with your children!!

Karen is an absolutely wonderful childminder, she takes on board the child’s interests/ difficulties and finds ways of getting them involved in a variety of messy/ outdoor play. My son has autism and a milk allergy and she is wonderful with him, he and his brother love going there! She is very calm and relaxed. I highly recommend her.
