About Me


Im a qualified OFSTED registered childminder and mother of 2 daughters, one aged 14 and one aged 3. We live in Yateley with two child-friendly cats.
I enjoy engaging the children in many social outings. We attend play groups almost every day, love having picnics in the park, going on walks through the forest and regularly visit the hands-on science centre at The Look Out.
I have lovely resources in my setting too, including a wooden role-play house/cafe, sand and water tables, bouncy castle (which all the children seem to love!) and throughout the months of suitable weather the children will also have the opportunity to grow flowers or vegetables. I am also lucky to be located near Tri-Lakes, where the children get great enjoyment from seeing and feeding the animals and participating in workshops.

Prior to embarking on a career in childcare I spent 10 years in the design industry and am degree educated.

My Experience

I have experience minding children aged between 7 months and 14years old.
Also raising my own two daughters, my eldest is 14years old and my youngest is 3. As you can imagine they both have very different needs and I am expert at meeting those varying needs! This stands me in great stead for caring for children across all ages and tailoring activites accordingly to ensure maximum enjoyment and learning opportunites.

I can highly recommend Claire. She gone completely out her way to help me and very thankful for that. My child enjoys being with Claire and is very happy.

They bake, play, draw and take trips, all seems fun and best of all my child is making friends, with children the same age.

Thank you for your help.

Claire has been looking after my 10 years old twins. The have settled in straight away. Claire's warm nature made me feel comfortable leaving them with her before we started. She has been very flexible with the hours.
My husband and I would highly recommend her.
