About Me

I am now an ofstead registered childminder.

I am a mother of two boys, one is 10 years old the second is 15 months old.

With them we enjoy playing games, singing, dancing, painting, making things and being outdoors. We have music on almost all day and do alot of active play.

My eldest has decided he prefers home education so no longer attends a public school, therefore is home all the time too. We do Pawprint Challenges as part of his education which others are welcome to join in with the activities.

We do have a small dog, two cats, a tortoise and some fish in a covered pond in the garden.

I have a full driving licence but unfortunately do not have a big enough car at present.

My Experience

I have worked in schools and day nurseries as a nursery nurse. working with children from 2 months to 6 years. I left work last October to have my youngest.

I have two children of my own. With them I have dealt with milk intolerance, colic and reflux.

Up until covid I babysat twice a week for three children, the youngest i have looked after since 2 weeks old. As well as having friends children when required.

My Qualifications

I have a Diploma in Childcare and education to level 3.

I have Paediatric First Aid qualification, Level 2 in Food Safety in Catering, Child Protection Advanced, epilepsy and administering medication. I have completed many qualifications, the full list can be shown if requested. Most recently I have completed child psychology level 4.

I have 3 children (11, 8, 3) Simone has watched my children 2 nights a week for over 5 years. She watched my son from 1 week old. She is a very responsible and reliable person. And I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my kids. The children love her and she always has lots of fun with them. She has done feeds, changes and bed routines. She has a natural ability with children and it shows when she is around them. I feel very confident that my children are safe and well looked after when I leave them with Simone.
