About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

I have been an Ofsted Registered Childminder since February 2006 and have lived in Yarm for 16years. I live with my daughter who is 22years old and just left University. I currently offer school pick ups and drop offs at Levendale primary school in Yarm. My home has a garden for children to play in and I live close to a play park.

I am a Forest Childcare Provider and I believe that spending time outdoors is very important. The children go outdoors here every day no matter what the weather because I believe that fresh air and wide open spaces are good for them! I live near to lovely parks, woodland areas and nature reserves and we visit one of these places at least once a week.

I offer children the opportunity to participate in a full range of activities such as cooking, arts and crafts, construction toys, music, dressing up/role play, stories, puzzles and sand/water play. I also take the children on regular outings to Stay and Play sessions at the local Children's centre, local parks, museums, farms, soft play and the beach.

My Experience

I have been Childminding since February 2006 and have looked after children from the age of 5 months to 11 years. Before I became a Childminder I trained to be a Teaching Assistant and did my placement in a local primary school working with years 1 and 3 supporting children with their literacy and numeracy lessons.
