About Me

I am French, but have lived in England since 1990. I am married, with 3 children (aged 13, 18 and 20), a very placid cat, and 4 rather inquisitive chickens... In my care, your children will benefit from a bilingual and bi-cultural environment, with the addition of freshly prepared French meals.

I provide a comfortable home setting with a large garden complete with swings, slides, trampoline, mud kitchen, and will engage the children in many varied activities adapted to their abilities and stages of development. Mornings are usually dedicated to outings (parks, farms, toddler groups, library) while afternoons are spent napping, playing, experimenting, discovering and generally generating a lot of mess in the setting. . .

Are you looking for childcare with a bit of “La difference"? You have just found "L'Ile Aux Enfants"...

My Experience

I registered in October 2006 and have always been awarded a “Good" grade on all five aspects of the childminding practice during all my Ofsted inspections.

My Qualifications

I hold a Paediatric First Aid Certificate, a Foundation Certificate in Food Hygiene and I have recently obtained the Level 3 Children and Young People's Workforce Diploma.

I believe that when it comes to child development,you never stop learning. I like to keep my knowledge up to date by attending training courses regularly.Recent ones include Safeguarding children, Promoting Positive Behaviour, Letters and Sounds, English as an Additional Language, Signing with Makaton, Moving to learn, Incorporating the Forest School philosophy in Early Years, Risky Play, Enabling Environments for babies, as well as various workshops on the Early Years Foundation Stage Principles.
