About Me

Dear Parents, I have been an Ofsted registered childminder since 2006. My key aim is to facilitate the growth and development of your child. I understand that every child is different and unique and therefore tailor their sessions with me. My home is a comfortable environment where children can come out of their shells and be themselves. Most of the activities are planned around the playroom however, depending on how much time we have we can take trips out to the library, allotment (during the summer), the park etc. In essence I want to create a safe, welcoming, stimulating environment for your children to develop both socially,physically and mentally.

Sylvia looked after my two kids from 2015 to 2019, and even now that,my kids are grown up, I still drop them off during the holidays. I would definitely recommend this lady, she is experienced with kids, my kids absolutely love her, and used to look forward to going to her.

My son had been with Sylvia for about three years, he really enjoyed being with Sylvia which gave us peace of mind at work. Sylvia is very caring and always gives her full attention in every aspect of the child's growth, be it playing, eating, learning- everything really! My son is very respectful to elders, good with his eating habits, also excelling in his studies which all started from Sylvia. Thank you very much Sylvia for taking care of our son, we are forever grateful to you! :)

Thank you for taking your time to share this positive rating. I am delighted to hear that the care and early years education I provided is still making positive impact on your child's overall development and education.

Sylvia was a lifesaver. She was like another mother for my son when I was at work. I had piece of mind at work as I knew that she would do the right thing when needed. She is dedicated, committed and a great teacher. Thank you for all you’ve done for us.

Thank you so much for taking your time to leave a review and to rate my service. I enjoyed looking after your child.

It was the first time l used a childminder for my 3rd child. To be honest I was a little apprehensive but now I wish I had used Sylvia for my first two children. They would have really benefited from it more. Instead we juggled it between ourselves.
At all times l felt my daughter was safe and happy with Sylvia.
