I am a mum of 2 gorgeous children, also a registered childminder. I have a very friendly shih tzu, who is very fond of the children I mind. She is 8 years old and has been with us since 6 weeks old. I did the NNEB at college after I left school. I completed the diploma in home-based childcare in July 2009. I always knew I'd work with children. It is very rewarding work.
I have been a childminder for 12 years, I have loved every minute. I run an inclusive practice with equality of opportunity for all.
I currently mind a young boy full time, a little girl part time and some before school children. I run a playgroup at St Catherine's Church on a thursday morning, where my childminded children love to play. I also go to various other playgroups during the week. I also go to soft play areas. I take the children to the park most days. They like to visit local libraries, museums, farms etc too. Also yearly trips to the zoo, aquarium, seaside, far out museums etc.
NNEB, CCE, Diploma in home-based childcare, First aid, Food hygiene level 2, safeguarding and common assessment framework, child protection level 1, positive behaviour management and many more childminding related qualifications.
I have 2 full time under 5yrs vacancies (can be a baby under 12mths), three 5-8yrs vacancies and 2x 8+yrs vacancies. I am very flexible and work evenings and weekends on request. Can not offer overnight care. I can collect from Bradshaw hall primary. Food is provided by the child's parents.

Rachel has looked after my 4 children since February 2010 (1 who has learning disabilities and autism) and has been fantastic, we were sceptical of having a childminder after a previous bad experience with someone else but rachel has been fantastic and we'd be lost without her and her own 2 children are now close with my own and rachel is like family to us .
My 2 year old boy has been going to Rachel for over a year & he loves Rachel & her family. She has developed a good bond with him & takes into account his interests and needs. She is very organised & ensures the children get varied experiences at farms, playgroups & many other places. She is well connected with the local community & other childminders. I would definitely recommend Rachel!
I have been looking for a Childminder for ages and was lucky enough to find Rachel to look after my 3 year old daughter. Rachel is very professional and competent as well as extremely reliable. She keeps the children in her care very entertained with lots of activities such as drawing, painting, gluing and many visits to the local playgroups. She actually runs a playgroup which is well attended with children of all ages.
Rachel also takes the children to the park, zoo and many other activities which my daughter enjoys and has many tales to tell me when I pick her up.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel to anyone requiring a Childminder as my daughter cannot wait to get to her house and often talks about Rachel to my family with many amusing tales. She enjoys the variety of food and healthy snacks that are provided. I could not relax more when I am away from my daughter as I know she is in excellent care and I feel totally confident in her ability to look after my child. The other children in Rachel's care are always happy and content when I see them on my many pick ups.
Rachel will be a asset to any family and my child has really benefitted from being in her care.
Please get in touch with her you will not be disappointed.
Was very wary of leaving my child with a childminder but am so happy I decided to and especially happy to have picked Rachel. She is extremely good with my child and all she talks about when she comes home is we did this with Rachel, we did that with Rachel. Children are always out and about and being kept active, both mentally and physically. Whether it is a trip to the soft play or park or a day out like the recent trip to safari park my daughter always has lots to say, even for days after. She so looks forward to going to Rachel's and her professionalism makes me just as happy as my daughter. She looks after the children in such a way that they all integrate successfully regardless of age. I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend her services and would like to take this opportunity to thank her whole heartledly for all the hard work she has done in the progression of my little princess and helping to give her a good start in life. Thank you very much Rachel for being such a good childminder.
Rachel looks after my 4 children (one who has learning disabilities ) i would be lost without Rachel she has managed to do what other child minders have failed to do which is to settle my son (whom is very hyperactive) Rachel takes the kids everywhere and they always come home with exciting stories of the days they have had x
