About Me

Hello, my name is Tammy and I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I live in Guildford with my husband and my 6 year old daughter and 3 year old little boy.

We are a social, active family and are looking forward to welcoming your child into our home – especially my daughter, who loves having other children around the house to play with as she is an ‘only child’...

Our home is situated in a quiet crescent with plenty of off-road parking and the beautiful Surrey downs just on our doorstep. Starfish Nursery, Boxgrove School, St. Thomas School and St. Peters School are all within walking distance.

I offer home-from-home care with lots of fun and laughter, driven by learning through play. I will provide all children with a warm and friendly environment, with lots of educational toys available at all times, while encouraging social skills by taking them to play groups.

I will create an open & honest relationship with parents where they can talk to me about anything regarding the care of their child and children in my care will be involved in a variety of stimulating, fun activities, both indoors and outdoors.

I know it’s difficult to trust another person to look after your precious little girl/boy and that’s why I understand even more how important it is to provide a loving and stable environment for any children I look after. I like to think of myself as a bubbly, confident, energetic person that one can fully trust, who provides a reliable service which parents can depend on.

We will enjoy walks in the surrey downs, allowing children to get as much fresh air as possible, while exploring the world around them. We have a lovely sized, secure garden full of equipment for children to play in, with sand and water activities, including a slide, swing and lots of room for ball activities and cavorting on ride-ons on the patio. A highlight is the potting station where children get to plant their own vegetables, fruit and herbs, to teach them where our fruit & veg comes from.

For indoor activities, I have educational toys available to suit all age ranges and we keep busy doing lots of crafts, dressing up, role play, messy play, story time, reading, baking, playing music, dancing and singing. I comply with the Early Year’s Foundation framework, so we have fun with different themes and topics each week while always targeting activities towards growth and development and balancing these with free playtime.

As well as interesting and varied activities, your child will also have a dedicated quiet place to rest or sleep.

Please feel free to message me for further information.

Tammy looked after my little girl for over 2 years, as a first time mum I had the awful dread of going back to work and leaving my little one. Tammy made it so easy for me, with lots of updates throughout the day, pics and videos which all helps to know she's happy and fine. She took care of my daughter like she would her own kids, which gave me complete peace of mind.

Tammy and her family are very outdoorsy and every opportunity she'd have the little ones outdoors which was great. Her garden is packed with toys, ride ons, swing, jungle gym, pool etc

My little girl had so much fun there, she never wanted to leave

Would definitely recommend Tammy

Tammy looked after my daughter for a year from the age of 2 and I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. She provided a warm and nurturing home from home environment, with plenty of fun activities and time spent out doors. I would pick up my daughter at the end of the day and find her happy, well fed and playing with the other children. She loved her time there and I would happily use Tammy again.

Tammy has looked after my little boy since he was about 18 months old. He is now 3. Prior to being with Tammy he had been at home with me. Tammy has been amazing throughout and really does offer a home from home service. I honestly feel she looks after my little boy as if he was one of her own. She arranges amazing activities and they have so much fun he is always happy there. He is now going to pre school but always asks if he can go to Tammy s house. I have seen my little boy grow in confidence in Tammy’s care and I would highly recommend her.

Tammy is not just a very nice person and a fun mom, she also has so much love for other kids too. She really is the best childminder I ever had, my son never cried at her place and her babies are very friendly too! She has a lovely home and lots of activity to offer.
Thank you
Tia
