Childminder in Ash

***30 HOURS FREE CHILDCARE UPDATE: I currently provide up to 15 hours funded childcare and will be providing up to 30 hours (8.00am - 5.00pm, Mon-Fri) from September 2017 based on eligibility.*** I am an OFSTED registered childminder. I live in Ash, with my husband - and three sons: D (2010), T (2011) & A (2015). We live in a spacious house, with a large garden, with our cat, Mittens, and guinea pigs, Pixie and Lola.
Our home is located in walking distance of the Ash library, convenience stores, play park and Rowan meadows, all of which combine to provide a wealth of learning experiences on our doorstep.
I drive an appropriately insured 7 seater which allows me to do drop offs and pick ups from local preschool settings if required, and from St. Polycarp's primary school (Farnham) as well as fun and educational outings.
Being a mum has taught me lots, including the importance of taking time to listen and understand babies and young children. Until recently I was a full time procurement manager, with a long commute, juggling home life and work, but the arrival of our third child made us reconsider how we provide for our family. With long held dreams of working with kids (I wanted to become a primary school teacher in high school, but took Law instead… ), childminding presented itself as an ideal way of combining work with the needs of my family. Having completed the Childminding Introduction Programme (ChIP) as well as passed my Pediatric First Aid exam, I am have been a registered childminder for over a year and am fulfilling my dream!

My daughter (2y) has been with Laetitia for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier.
She is a very friendly and warm person and has welcomed my daughter from the first day. I feel my child is in a save, friendly and fun environment.
Laetitia is doing lots of fun activities during the day and is responding to the children’s needs in any way possible. My daughter is enjoying her time with „Tisha“ very much.
I have known Laetitia and her family for a number of years and I was delighted to learn that she was a childminder when I had my daughter.
I am a nursery manager and so finding a suitable childcare provider was very important to me. Laetitia is so warming towards my little girl and all of the other children within her setting. She provides a home from home experience to the children in her care and my little girl loves going there. Laetitia is always going on outings with the children and goes to a selection of playgroups. She has lovely space for the children to play in her home and the garden is incredible. Her safety standards with the children allows me to know my child is safe and well looked after in her care. Knowing how happy my child is when in Laetitias care is priceless, and I struggle getting my child wanting to come home! An excellent setting and all round care.
Laetitia is a lovely warming and the most friendly person. My daughter is 14 month when she started and now its only been 5 weeks. She is very gentle with her and always work around her, and also give me good advise. She takes her out with other children to all sorts of places and doing all different activities, and i know my daughter is having a great time whenever she is there. She knows very well how to handling a child and how to comfort them. My daughter doesn't nap well in the day and not a very good eater, but she always eat well there and does her nap fine.
I would highly recommended her to every mother who is looking for a childminder. And trust her will give the most caring to your child.
Laetitia has been looking after both our children (wrap-around care for the oldest and full days for the youngest) two days a week since last summer. They have both thoroughly enjoyed being looked after by her, and have got so much out of their time with her. She does a great range of trips and fun educational activities with the children she looks after, and provides really child-centred care. She is a wonderful childminder and they have both thrived in her setting; we're making changes to childcare due to family circumstances and I know both boys will really miss her and her lovely family. Thank you so much for everything, Laetitia!
I can't recommend Laetitia highly enough; she has welcomed my son into her home and treats him very much like another member of her family. His third day being with Laetitia was his birthday, not only did she buy him a present that she already knew he would love (she was spot on) but she also went to the effort of making him cakes that met his dietary requirements and threw him a birthday tea party. He loved it and felt very special.
Laetitia follows the EYFS and does a lot of educational work with 'her' children, but she does it in a really fun way, soon picking up on what motivates the children and focusing on these interests to help them learn. She produces a lovely weekly review with photos to provide information on what activities my son has been engaged in.
If you are looking for a loving, caring and educational environment for your child(ren) then I strongly suggest you give Laetitia a call. My son adores spending time with her. Thank you Laetitia for all you do.
