My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder in Boreham.
I have children of my own and enjoy being busy, doing fun activities at home or out and about.
I offer a homely option to childcare, and love to look after children of all ages. We are very welcoming and friendly, and like to share our family home with others.
I am very experienced and I am knowledgeable in childhood and childcare provision.

My Experience

I had my first OFSTED inspection in May 2018 where I was awarded a “GOOD” grading!! I am so proud of this as I work so hard to maintain a high level of provision, and believe I care for children as I would want my own cared for. I enjoy looking after children.
I have had experience in many areas, including starting 2 day care settings from “scratch”, working in full day nurseries as a room leader and nursery nurse, out of school clubs, wraparound care, schools, preschool and nannying, 1:1 LSA in primary school, voluntary co-chair at the local preschool (where we gained a "GOOD" Ofsted grade in April 2016), new born experience, and experience with additional needs including speech and language, ADHD and attachment.

I am an experienced childcare practitioner having qualified to cache NVQ level 3 Childcare and Education in 2002 and have 4 children of my own. I am currently studying for a BA honours degree in childhood and youth studies.

I can currently offer care between 7am-9am and 3pm and 6pm for school aged children, serving school runs at Boreham primary only.
I can also offer non pupil day cover and school holiday care 7am-6pm - other hours negotiable. I am only usually closed over the Xmas period and pride myself on being flexible to meet the needs of the families I work for.

I have current first aid, DBS, eyfs and safeguarding as well as many other qualifications - please feel free to ask to see my certificates. I enjoy updating my knowledge and keeping up with regular changes within the sector.
