I am a bubbly, caring and person. I have good knowledge of childcare and keep up with new courses.

I have a cat called Xena who is house trained.

I go to toddler groups, , story time at library, farms, zoos, parks, meeting up with other childminders, i do cooking and art activities with the children based on their age development, i go to childminding groups to catch up with other childminders and to help the children with their development. I have a balcony connected to the lounge and the children can play with water, sand, soil, also we do some planting.

Laura is my little boy’s full time childminder and you can tell she genuinely likes her children she looks after. My boy adores her and her son which I find important! When I pick him up, i get told about his day and i get to see photos or artworks on a regular basis. It’s so good to know my child is happy so I have nothing to worry about. He has learned so much since he has been with Laura, so I’m very pleased.

Laura has been my childminder for the past three years and I cannot speak more highly of her. I am very jealous of all the wonderful activities that the children do with her, rather than being stuck indoors they are always going to different places and trying different things.

In addition to external activities Laura spends time developing their skills by doing lots of reading and writing activities and has been very good at tailoring activities to the different needs and requirements of my children.

Laura has a good network of childminder contacts which means that the children get to mix lots with other children.

Laura always keeps me informed as to the children which is valuable when you are a full time mum. For example when my daughter found out she was Mary in the pre school nativity Laura allowed her to phone me at work to tell me first, which for me was a precious moment and allowed me to be involved whilst still being at work.
