My name is Lorraine and I am an Ofsted registered Childminder based in Tadworth, Surrey. I am 38 years old and have been with my husband for 22 years and married for 14 years. We have a son and daughter.
I have always found caring for children enjoyable and rewarding and after Eleanor was born, I decided to leave my job as a Production Executive to become a full-time childminder so that I could spend time with her during the day whilst helping other parents that wish to go to work.
In a recent Ofsted inspection I was rated OUTSTANDING in Personal development, behaviour and welfare, and GOOD in all other areas.
12 years experience within the childcare industry.

Lorraine has been looking after our little boy, 16 months, since September 2020. I was so worried about leaving him with anyone and also being a teacher I was also quite fussy! Lorraine has been professional from the moment we met her and immediately made both me and my husband feel at ease. It has been a hard time for any parent recently but Lorraine has been fantastic with her communication and care. Luca loves to go to Lorraine’s and she often sends us pictures of him throughout the day. We are happy and confident leaving him there and he has settled quickly. Lorraine always has lovely activities set up for the children and takes Luca on lovey trips to the park. Thank you Lorraine for always looking after Luca so well - he loves coming to your house and we are very grateful! I would really recommend Lorraine to any parents looking for a great childminder.
Lorraine has been minding my son James for nearly 2 years now and continues to take excellent care of him. James settled really quickly and is always happy to attend.
Lorraine takes James to many playgroups and trips to garden centres and other outdoor activities. We are able to see how James’ day has been as Lorraine regularly updates a program called ‘Tapestry’ were we are able access photos and descriptions of activities James has taken part in. We also receive a detailed paper diary on a daily basis which informs us of what James has ate/nap times/ nappy changes. This information has been so helpful as we are able to see exactly what James has eaten and if he had slept well which helps us know how he will be that evening. We find this a really valuable form of communication.
Lorraine has a lovely family and James is very found of her children and often speaks about them. They are so warm and welcoming to James. Lorraine’s setting has lots of toys and her garden is well equipped for James to learn through play.
We would highly recommend Lorraine and we are very thankful to her for taking such great care of James.
I was so nervous finding someone to look after my little girl and Lorraine has taken all those fairs away. I drop my daughter off every morning knowing that she's in safe hands, she now gets excited to see Lorraine and the other children.
I decided to go with Lorraine rather than a Nursery as Lorraine takes the children out on activities, whether it be the park, garden centres, soft play centres etc. I found this more appealing as my daughter can still participate in day to day activities in a smaller group as apposed to being indoors all day in a Nursery.
Lorraines very professional and from day 1 she has kept me up to date with Islas personal development, sending me photos through out the day.
Lorraine's childminding space is always very clean and tidy.
I couldn't recommend Lorraine highly enough and I feel extremely lucky knowing that my daughter is in very safe hands.
Id be more than happy to talk to any Mum who was interested in having Lorraine look after their child.
I was so relieved to have found Lorraine when I had to go back to work after my maternity leave. I initially went to meet with her and was given such a warm welcome and was instantly impressed with her friendly and professional approach. She has a lovely home which is a perfect setting for children with a great selection of toys and activities.
I was so worried that my daughter wouldn't settle with anyone else other than me (she's very clingy!) but I needn't have worried. Lorraine is so caring and attentive and my daughter settled with her so well and now loves going and playing with her new friends.
I would highly recommend Lorraine to anyone!
Lorraine was an absolute godsend when my son first started school. The after school club that he attended before going to Lorraine, made him really unhappy. He would cry every day and even talk about it on weekends in anxiety. After sending him to Lorraine, he was a different boy, and he settled very quickly.
The setting is lovely and home-like, with interesting features like the fish tank, and a big enough array of toys to keep my son interested.
Lorraine herself is so lovely-very friendly and enthusiastic. She always showed great concern and interest when it came to him, so I really felt he was with someone who cared and would keep him safe. She is also big on hygiene and safety, which is great, and has always been very flexible with any requests I might have (menu changes or time changes)
We only left due to distance/practicality, otherwise would have stayed on!
