About Me

Hello, my name is Gail and I am an Ofsted registered childminder, graded GOOD by Ofsted. I also hold a qualification in paediatric first aid.

I live in central Egham with my husband, our son who is 5 and daughter age 10, who both attend Manorcroft Primary School and our cat. We are a happy close family and offer a warm, welcoming family environment for children in my care.

We live very close to Manorcroft School, the local park, station, library and other amenities. I also have a clean driving licence and a car equipped with child seats in case we need to drive anywhere.

My Experience

I am Ofsted registered with a "GOOD" grading, paediatric first aid qualified and completed a CHiP course with Surrey County Council in November 2013.

I have lots of experience of working with children, including my own two children and have been childminding since my registration for various other children.

Gail provided outstanding care to our 2 and 4 year old sons. The youngest was with Gail 4 days per week and really enjoyed every day. Gail followed a brilliantly engaging routine which meant the children were doing something different every day, but also ate and napped at the same time each day. I would highly recommend Gail as a childminder.

Gail looked after my son from aged 11 months. He quickly settled in which was helped by Gail’s warm, welcoming manner. He enjoyed the wide variety of activities which Gail provided, e.g. parks, toddler groups, messy play, and the good selection of toys. He always ate well at Gail’s and she was helpful in providing suggestions of alternative foods to try when he started to become fussy. The daily updates were very informative and a lovely record of his adventures. He will miss his time with Gail and I was sad to have to end his time with her due to a change in personal circumstances.

Gail looked after our daughter for two years, and has been fantastic! My daughter has really enjoyed going to Gail's, and particularly relished their daily outings to various parks, childminder groups, and other exciting places. Gail has also helped her at home with numbers, writing, motor skills (all bases covered), and been particularly supportive and encouraging in my daughter's love of all things craft and arts based. Gail has always been flexible with my changing work hours and pick up times, and I've never worried if I'm running late or if I need extra help on a particular day.

The whole family have been so welcoming, and extended their warmth to us which was very reassuring, especially at the beginning when my daughter was still quite little and childminders were completely new to us. Gail emails over time sheets in the afternoon, with lovely photos of their daily activities, along with a write up of the day-which we often read together as a family. Gail is fantastic with all of her minded children- nurturing, patient, organised, and fair...I highly recommend her.

Gail looked after my daughter Rachael from when she was 9months old. As first time parents we were quite nervous but Gail put us at ease straight away and we knew our daughter was completely safe and was enjoying her experience everyday. Gail ensured that Rachael undertook a range of activities from home play to trips to the park and library. Gail kept us updated on Rachael’s progress and sent us a daily updated of what she had gotten up to with pictures attached. Not only is Gail warm and friendly, her family are also very welcoming making rachael feel like part of the family.
My daughter no longer attends Gail’s due to changes in my employment but she still gets excited to see her out and about or at the local library showing what an impact she has had on Rachael’s life. I highly recommend Gail to anyone!!

My son was cared for by Gail from the age of 2 and a half until he started in reception at school. I highly recommend Gail, she is kind and caring and my son was always more than happy going to her. She is professional and offers a home from home environment. She regularly takes the children out to different groups relevant for their age and when at home she offers a safe environment and partakes in many activities with them. My son often came home with some lovely craft bits he had proudly made for myself and the rest of our family.
