About Me


With Many First Class References from families I have cared for over the past 25 years

I have 2 children aged 16 years and 8 years.

I am able to care for children in their own home or my own home as I am registered for both.

I am working as a Childminder at the moment. I also work weekends to accommodate people with shifts and late evenings. These have been Police Officers and Musicians who of course don't have set 9-5 jobs.

I have over the years experience in caring for twins. .I have cared for 5 sets of twins within this period aged from 9 month up to 9 year old

I do prefer to keep my availability to a minimum as like to get out and about alot and give more one to one attention to the children in my care.

My main school for pick up is Bill Quay School Gateshead.

I am available if you are just wanting school holidays covered.

Also occasional days/weekends/evenings and I can also follow a shift-pattern if your work consists of this. I do also have families that just need a mature reliable evening childcarer to look after their little ones,

I visit places such as;

Making music at the Sage

National trust. .Gibside this we try and do quite regularly. Strawberry castle play park is a favourite with the children. then a walk through woods to make a den.

Wallington National Trust

Cragside National Trust

Chester le street Riverside water park

Little Crafters arts/craft class

Seven stories - Yearly Membership

Story time

Down at the farm - Yearly Membership

Yoga for children,

Kids r fit classes,

Music classes
Tumble tots,

Soft play

Baking Bread/Cakes

Painting / Crafts....etc and many more interesting activities.

I was on the bank staff at my local NHS Hospital caring for sick children in the community as a HCA.

I hve mainly worked as a Nanny in areas such as Gosforth, Jesmond, Ponteland and Lowfell and these have been professional families I have cared for.
