About Me

Hi my name is Marie , I have two grown children and two beautiful Grandchildren. I have been childminding since April 2004. I previously worked in an Infant school as a Teaching Assistant for 6 1/2 years. I have experience with children from 0 onwards and with children with disabilities. We have 2 kittens (Cosmo and Luna) and 2 puppies (Pluto and Jupiter). We enjoy lots of activities such as messy play, creative play, singing and dancing, outings to the fields, park, library and free play sessions. Children will enjoy a home from home environment and parents will be able to feel reasured that their children are being well cared for.

Below are the latest reviews for Marie. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

My son has been with Marie for nearly 2 years now and he adores her! She is amazing with my son Dylan and it's great hearing about the fun filled day that he has had. When he first started going to Marie he was a painfully shy, difficult toddler who wouldn't play with other children.He was given the care, attention and encouragement that he needed and is now a very confident, clever, fun little boy who will play happily with children of all ages.
Marie has a lovely home and garden for the children to play in and they reguarly go out on day trips. Dylan has learnt so much since he has been going to Marie he has truly blossomed and I will always be grateful to Marie for this :)

I HIGHLY recommend Marie to all parents, she is very flexible and always happy to help.

Nothing beats the smile that I get from my son when I tell him that we are going to see Marie that morning :)
