My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

I am a registered childminder and hold a CACHE level 3 in Early Learning and Childcare Pathways. I have three wonderful children aged 22, 12 and 2 years old, who have been a constant joy to me. I have relished their upbringing, which has resulted in my passionate approach about what I do as a childminder.

I have seen children flourish in my care and feel honoured that I've played an important role in helping them to reach their early learning goals. For me, it is essential that the children are happy and secure; that they feel a sense of belonging at my setting and that I provide loving and supportive care.

It is important that children are given the opportunity to simply be children. I embrace all kinds of play including crafts, messy play, enjoying the sensory quality of materials and enjoying fresh air and our natural environment. We enjoy trips to the zoo, farm, beach and library to name but a few.

My Experience

I have extensive experience, from being a mum of two and working in a number of different nurseries (whilst gaining the relevant qualifications). At these reputable facilities I held the positions of room leader for under 3's and lead teacher for the under 3's in a Montessori nursery. I have also worked with children covering a range of different SEND needs.

I am a competent and professional business woman, having owned and managed a very successful business before moving into a career in childcare, which is where my heart belonged.
