About Me

Hi, I am an ofsted registered childminder with over 24 years of experience.

I have a passion for caring for and nurturing children into kind and successful young adults.

I have 3 grown up children, one of whom is a working mum and I understand how difficult it is to leave your child, even with a loved one. And it is with that in mind that I cherish and care for each and every child in my care. My aim is to ensure you go to work happy that your child is happy.

I attend courses regularly and provide the same learning experience as a nursery but with that added personal touch.

If you would like to know anymore, please do not hesitate in contacting me.

Lorraine goes above an beyond with all children she looks after. Nothing is too much trouble. She is very caring and passionate. I would highly recommend Lorraine. My little boy absolutely loves going to her. Since my little boy started with Lorraine he has come on leaps and bounds. My husband and I always feel at ease when leaving our boy on Lorraine's care!
