About Me

**space from September message me for availability**
My name is Laura. I started child minding in December 2013.
I have a son who was born in July 2012 and daughter who was born in May 2016 and live with my partner in Horley. We have a Labrador who was born in March 2015 who is a key member of our family.

We go out most mornings to local toddler groups and soft play or out to the parks, national trust venues and local farms for the day, I feel this will benefit each child’s emotional and social skills as well as physical development, which will help in preparation for starting nursery/school.
After lunch we do activities at home / read books, arts and crafts and play in the garden.

My aim is to provide quality child care for babies/children 0-8yrs. To develop continuity of care. To provide healthy extended family atmosphere. To work in partnership with parents/carers to enhance the child’s development to enable the child to reach his/her full potential. To be sensitive to sex, race, cultural religion and linguistic backgrounds of individual children and parents.

My Experience

After college I worked in 4/5* hotels for 10 years in the weddings, events and sales departments. The last hospitality position I held I was in for 4 years as the Wedding and Private Dining Manager in a 5* hotel in Bagshot, Surrey for which I left to look after my son in 2012.

I then became an Ofsted Registered Childminder in November 2013.

My Qualifications

I have 11 GCSE's, an advanced GNVQ in Travel and Tourism and an HND in Hospitality Management.

I have been Ofsted Registered since November 2013 and I have since then have completed the following - CHIP training course, paediatric first aid course, safeguarding course, planning, observing and documenting course

Surrey county council run courses which I attend when possible, some of which include - schemas, fun with sounds, understanding boys..

I completed my Early Years Educator course LEVEL 3 in May 2016 which I completed in the evenings and weekends to better my knowledge of the industry.

Laura looked after my daughter for over 2 years and she was incredible. I instantly felt I could trust her and my daughter loved her. She adapted to my daughter's medical needs and took amazing care of her. For us Laura provided the perfect home from home setting with a great variety of activities and outings.

Laura looked after my daughter from the age of 8months to 3yrs old. She treated Lottie like her own. Laura is hard working, caring, thoughtful and puts so much effort in with the children. Lottie absolutely loved spending time with her and the other children and learnt a great deal with her.
I would absolutely recommend (and have done!) Laura to anyone looking for a childminder or babysitter.

Laura looked after my son after school and both of my children over school holidays from 2019-2020, I can honestly say she is the best childminder I have ever had and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for childcare. Laura is very kind, patient and absolutely amazing with the children. Her house is lovely and has a wide range of toys and activity's for the children and she really thinks carefully about the need's and likes/dislikes of each child in her care. She also ensured that my son was always developing and encouraged with his learning. She often reminded me of things regarding the school which was amazing and was great at passing messages on to and from the school. Laura is very professional and also very caring. My children often ask if they can go to Laura's as they love it at her house.

I would highly recommend Laura to any parents. I have nothing but praise for laura and can’t recommend her highly enough. I go to work happy everyday with the confidence that my little girl is in the very safest hands and is exceptionally happy, she has been made to feel like part of the family.

The environment is fantastic and feels like home from home, the outdoor space is particularly good and packed full of toys. Laura fills everyday with plenty of fun activities which have created plenty of special memories for her.

Laura looked after my two children for 2 years and I could not recommend her more highly!!

She is absolutely incredible and my children felt like they were part of her family for the entire time they spent with her. Her house is warm and exciting for the children and Laura really thinks carefully about the need's and likes/dislikes of each child in her care.

Laura is extremely flexible and accommodating and due to this both children were able to attend after school clubs at their school. She is also fantastic at passing on information from school (and reminding me of all the things I was likely to forget!😊)

My children absolutely adored Laura''s household and were always made to feel so welcome and loved. As a working parent, all I could ask for is that they are happy and feel safe in the environment they are in and they genuinely couldn't have been happier.

If my personal circumstances hadn't changed, I would have kept my children with Laura forever!😊

I can't recommend her enough! She is a fabulous childminder!
