About Me

I am a mum of three children I have been a registered childminder with Social Services then Ofsted since 1998.
I have cared for several children in the time i have been a registered childminder and still have a few of the first children i cared for still with me now . We try to go on outings to the park , beach, sealife centre as much as we can as this is a great learning experience aswell as fun for the children . I have a great range of toys for all ages which i have built up over the years.
I am able to collect and drop children from and to home .

My Experience

I have worked in various sectors of childcare since 1994.
I have been a Nanny, worked in a creche , been the supervisor of Charlie Chalks Fun Factory but i have enjoyed being a childminder the most as you have more freedom to be able to go on outings when the weather is nice or if the children want to do cooking or paiting etc and we do not have the equipment here then we can go out to the shop to get it instead of having to plan a day to do each activity we can do our planning daily depending on what the children want to do on that day aswell.
I became a registered Childminder 4 years before having my own children. I think being a parent yourself is one of the best experience someone could have to care for other peoples children.
