About Me

I began working as a childminder in September 2014. I live with my husband and 3 children; 2 girls and a boy. Our house is on the West side of Dunstable surrounded by beautiful countryside; Dunstable Downs, Totternhoe and Green Lanes. The town and nearby parks are within walking distance and Mead Open Farm and Whipsnade Zoo are on our doorstep.

I currently cover Lancot & Ardley Hill schools.

I consider my home warm and inviting and enjoy sharing it with others and using it for my home childminding. We are fortunate to have a dedicated playroom, a kitchen diner where the children can eat and do arts & crafts and a large garden to play in.

The playroom is bright and colourful with toys, books, puzzles, games, arts and crafts, music and television to suit every age and interest. Toys are rotated depending on the child and age. The wooden play kitchen is a firm favourite. There is Happyland, wooden track and trains, cars, baby dolls, preschool wooden / ‘plastic fantastic’ toys, musical instruments, construction, learning games... the list is endless.

The garden is fully enclosed and always available weather permitting for outside play. There is a trampoline, playhouse & swing. There are a number of ride-ons and in the summer months, a paddling pool, sand pit, pop up play tents and tunnels.

You can be rest assured your child will have a varied day. If we’re not home doing child led and/or planned activities we will be out & about visiting playgroups, having playdates with other childminders, going to the park, the farm, to town and to feed the ducks. At JollyTots we watch tv! We give cuddles! We read stories! We play! We bake!... all mixed in with some quiet time!
JollyTots is ‘childminding at home’.

My Experience

I registered as a childminder in May 2014 and since opening JollyTots Childcare in September 2014 a total of 20+ children ranging in age from 11 months to 10 years have come through the JollyTots doors.
