About Me

I am an Ofsted Registered Child-minder in Kennington rated GOOD by Ofsted in 2016. I collect children from St Mary's School, Ashford and from Great Chart Pre-school also.

My setting is within walking distance of a large park and I have a garden and large playroom. Each day we go to toddler and childminding groups where the children can socialise and do craft activities/free play. We also make regular trips to the local library and one of the local farms, and Tumble time. All these trips are included in my fees.

I provide hot meals for the children if required (for small additional fee) and many parents like me to do this. Parents are welcome to provide their own food for their children.

I do not charge for children for parents holidays.

It is possible that I may be able to assist if a parent cannot drive

I work in holiday and term time (my own holidays withstanding).

Children have the option to take part in craft activities, messy play, sand/water play, play-dough, painting, baking, threading, and much more while gearing learning towards their interests.

My Experience

I have had a lot of experience of caring for children through raising my own four children who have enjoyed the experience of meeting and playing with the children I care for.

I have been graded as GOOD by Ofsted in 2016 and have been registered since April 2013. I have passed many courses recently including Improving Children’s Learning Through Play,Supporting Early Language Development and Safeguarding. I have current Pediatric First Aid Training.

My Qualifications

In order to become a child minder I attended the Child minding Pre-Registration Course in 2012. Topics covered were Child Protection, Learning and Development, Assessment, Keeping Children Safe and Healthy, Record Keeping and Starting a home based childcare service. I have an up-to-date First Aid Certificate and Safeguarding Certificate. I also passed the NAMCW Childcare Diploma in 1991.

I have attended the following workshops in September 2013: Special Needs and 0-2 The Age of Opportunity. I attended an Ashford District Child-minder Support Session and a New Child-minder support session in October 2013.

I have attended a Local Authority Approved Safeguarding Course in June 2014.

Below are the latest reviews for Lisa. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Lisa has been looking after my 3yo for around 2 years now and my 6yo when she's on holiday from school. They both love going to Lisa's house and enjoy all of the activities and outings she arranges. Lisa is very caring and all ages of children seem comfortable in her setting. Highly recommended. Extra touches such as a regular newsletter are great too.
