About Me

I have been a Childminder for 20+ years now and my partner, George, is my Category 2 Assistant. I have 5 lovely grown-up children and George has 3 great grown-up children. We work extremely well together as a team. We love our job and get a great buzz from working with all the children - and, yes, it is tiring but very rewarding - wouldn't change it!!

We have insurance with Childcare.co.uk.

We open from Monday-Friday 8.00am-5.30pm (with a little flexibility)

My Experience

Over the years I have developed a lot of experience with children of many different ages, personalities and from different cultures. We have an excessive amount of understanding, patience and fun with the children. We like to teach them how to share, have good manners, show respect for each other. We enjoy going to mums n tots, the park, feeding the ducks and when time allows take trips to Exploris, Streamvale Farm and the Zoo! We do drop-offs and pick-ups to various schools in our area. Our flexibility allows us to pick children up from various local nurseries and primary schools whilst letting young babies continue their sleep. Snacks and lunches are prepared for the older children coming home from schools/the park. We promote good hygiene which includes brushing teeth - usually before food. We have an extensive range of age-appropriate indoor and outdoor toys and a large secure rear garden equipped with a trampoline, climbing frame with 2 platforms and 2 slides - strictly supervised. We live in a cul-de-sac area with little traffic and at present there is a long pavement that starts from nowhere and goes to nowhere which we use for the prams and outdoor toys or just running. We work well together and with all our parents always aiming to meet their needs and the needs of the children.
