About Me

I have an available place, in Shalford, for a 2-4 year old, which might suit a part time teacher, as it's term time: Tuesday: 7.30am - 5.00pm

I can also do some additional days throughout the year (booked in advance).

I have previously taught in schools and managed a small daycare setting. I have baby through to teenage experience.

I provide a small (currently 3 preschool children at one time, but hoping to increase numbers) home from home setting in my newly refurbished house in Shalford, Surrey. I am able to offer my experience in daycare and preparing the 2+ year olds for preschool/school.

We have plenty of space indoors, leading out to a decked area and garden.

As required, I follow the EYFS Curriculum, and we love play-based learning and being outdoors. I thrive on creating activities/games, to engage all children and I love joining in!

I am married, and we have one child (girl - born 2009). We also have a Working Cocker Spaniel (2016) although she will be out having her own fun, during my working hours. I enjoy: cooking, walking, gardening and when I get the chance - cycling and swimming.

Come and see for yourself! You can see everything in more detail: the premises, planning (how the activities link to the Curriculum) policies/procedures, my certificates/DBS, menus, learning journals, children's progress, a typical day, etc, and discuss your child's individual requirements and address any concerns you might have.

Employer childcare vouchers accepted and I am currently completing details to be able to offer FEET funded places for 2 year olds and the funded 15 hours for 3/4year olds.

My Experience

I previously worked in London, Advertising/Marketing (Agency side) until completing a PGCE, Early Years and KS1 in 2005. Since then, I have spent some time working in schools, but I particularly love the little ones and moved to managing a small day nursery.

Setting up as a Childminder has allowed me to carry on working with babies/toddlers/preschoolers, while using skills gained from:
BA Education (Baby/child development) PGCE Early Years and KS1,
teaching, managing a mixed aged Day Care Nursery.

I have also worked part time for Shooting Star Chase, as an Assistant Manager in the Guildford shop.

I have experience of children from 0-18 years, with my main experience being from 3 months to 5 years.
