About Me

I am an experienced OFSTED registered childminder and offer funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. I have been graded GOOD in all areas at my last inspection. The emphasis of my setting is to offer a fun and safe place in which children can learn through play, following the EYFS curriculum. I also take learning outside as much as possible to explore our natural environment. We have regular outings to local parks, soft play, library, bounce and rhyme etc where the children can socialise in bigger groups. I encourage healthy eating with a nutritious varied menu which the children regularly contribute ideas to help engage them in healthy eating in a fun way. All outings and meals are included in my fees.
I also offer before and after school care for St Michael’s School in Chatham.
I offer babysitting service as well. Please message or call me to enquire.

My Experience

I have vast experience of working with children of all ages to help them meet their full potential. From my teenage years I was helping my mum who was a childminder, and I ran my own babysitting service as well. I was a social worker for 3.5 years so am experienced in ensuring robust safeguarding practices. I have now been a registered childminder since March 2015, and at my last Ofsted inspection I was graded GOOD in all areas, the inspector particularly commenting on the strong relationships I have with the children.

My Qualifications

Enhanced DBS check and paediatric first aid.
I have a degree in Psychology including developmental psychology, and a degree in social work. I therefore have a wide knowledge of children’s developmental needs and how to encourage children to learn through their play.

My Availability

I have spaces all day for children under 5 years of age, and also before and after school care for children at St Michael’s school in Chatham. I am also able to offer school holidays care. I can also offer one off emergency care if space allows at the time.

Laura goes above and beyond expectations when dealing with me and my little one. I can't praise her and her services enough. My son still till this day asks when will he see her next. Laura's become apart of the family and will be truly missed now that's he's moved on to another setting. Nevertheless I know that if I do need any help again Laura will be the first person I'll go to.
Truly a gem.
Thank you for everything Laura.

Laura looked after our 17 month old boy today at such short notice due to an emergency hospital admission. Our son has come home very happy and very tired from lots of playing, we will definitely go back to Laura when it comes to getting him into childcare in the future and I would definitely recommend Laura :) thank you again! x

I was looking for help getting my son to school and sometimes picked up too as i suffered a brain hemorraghe and cannot drive. It was vital that i found someone i felt comfortable with and more importantly someone my son felt comfortable with. Laura was absolutely the perfect person and the first thing she said was that she wanted my son to like her . I have had the pleasure of using her services and it is only because we are moving that we have to change my sons school and cant keep laura. We will miss her soo much as both my son and i have grown to love her like family. Her skills as a childminder as priceless and i wish i could take her with us.
