About Me

hi I am a married mum of 3 children, I have a 13 year old daughter and twin boys who are all at school. I also have 2 bunnies. And a little cockapoo dog.
i have been living on canvey for nearly four years now, we have just had our garage converted into a lovely playroom for the children to play safely. we regularly spend our days out going to different parks, forests walks and farms and the sealife centre and having fun in a safe and welcoming environment.

My Experience

I have lots of experience working and caring for children . I started of by working in pre schools and nursery's. and have recently finished a level 3 diploma working with young children from 0 to 19 years. I am registered with Ofsted and have a full dbs.,first aid, safe guarding and completed a food hygiene course.i have been rated a( 5) from environmental health service. i enjoy working with children and helping them to develop whilst offering a warm and secure and safe environment.as well as fun and welcoming. my setting offers a bright and friendly atmosphere where children can enjoy a range of activities which include arts and crafts, baking, fun and games indoors and out.

I have a public liability insurance and also hold a full pediatric certificate. i also hold a full driving licence which enables me to go on lots of day trips out of the area which include farms, woods, museums, educational and fun days out.


I work very closely with parents taking in to account of each child's needs. parents will be provided with a daily contact sheet which will tell you information about your child's day including activities, and food eaten and nap times which will give the parents a full picture of your child's day.

i am also available for school holiday cover.

Wow, Belinda is a fantastic childminder. I am so glad I picked Belinda to look after my daughter!
Belle has been going to Belinda for a good couple of months now, I never thought she would of settled but she settled quickly and loves it there.
She is very well looked after and is always taken out to groups, farm, sealife centre. They are always out and about doing something. Belles development has really come on since going to Belinda. Now belle has started eating solids Belinda makes her home made meals.
I cannot recommend this lady enough,
It makes me happy that I know my child is well looked after. Belinda always makes sure I know what belle has eaten through the day, where they have been, nappies changes and naps etc. Nothing is ever to much trouble for Belinda.
A very welcoming family.

Wow belinda is an absolute super star.
My 2 year old William hated nursery and would sob constantly whilst there. He has been with ‘dinda’ for nearly a year, does 2 full time days and he loves it. I cannot recommend belinda enough, she is an amazing mum, childminder and someone I now consider my friend.
I cannot recommend belinda enough, the children are always off out somewhere. William is such a character and being with Belinda has built his confidence and he loves her. I am already dreading him leaving her for school.
Thank you belinda xx

My son has been going to Belinda for some time now and he loves it!
I couldn't recommend her enough.
She is great with the kids, they are always so happy to be there with her.
They are always out and about doing things and having fun!
They always have nice home cooked food.
Belinda is a kind caring lovely lady who will take good care of your child. She feels like more of a friend then just a childminder.

thank you so much for your kind review, i love the children coming to me and i love caring for them and enjoy watching the children thrive and grow, i also feel blessed for having such lovely parents. x

My 2 year old has been with Belinda for a year now and has settled in really well. He loves going here and even asked me to go when it's his day off! Nothing is too much trouble and the environment is like a home from home. He goes on day trips to butterfly wings or the farm. He also gets taken to playgroup most mornings now winter is here which he loves. Lovely lady and lovely home environment. Thouroughly recommend!

thank you so much for your lovely review, i love looking after the children that i care for and i am so lucky to have such lovely parents!

My little boy has been going to Belinda for 7 months now and he absolutely loves it. Belinda provides lovely home cooked meals for him and takes him to groups and for walks/activities etc. She is fantastic and very thoughtful, he has received presents for both his birthday and Christmas which is a really nice touch. Belinda makes sure to tell me everything he's been up to that day and she keeps a daily diary for him, which tells me what he's eaten and his nappies throughout the day etc. I can't recommend her enough! Couldn't ask for anyone better.

A very happy mummy
