About Me

Hi, my name is Lisa, I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder located in Southwold, Bicester. I live with my husband, 11 year old daughter, 6 year old son and our cat.

I know how important it is to provide a home from home environment for your child, therefore I work in partnership with parents to create a stable, nurturing setting for all children in my care. I focus on all areas of learning through both free play and structured play. We particularly enjoy creative play, reading, nursery rhymes, collecting outdoor treasures, painting, drawing and having fun at the park.

I take the children to local toddler groups (pre covid) regularly so that they get the chance to socialise, whilst still getting the individual care they need from me. I work towards meeting their next steps ensuring they reach their milestones in a way tailored to them as an individual to help prepare them for school.

I use a secure online diary system so you can follow your child’s progress and view photos from their day as they happen.

I offer school pickups and drop offs at Bure Park Primary School and Bubbles Pre School.

Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

My son has been going to Lisa before and after school for over 3 years. We feel so grateful to have found Lisa as she instantly made my son feel welcomed in her home and ensured that he engaged in all varieties of activities to aid his development growing up. Lisa is friendly and caring and my son loves spending time with her and her family. She utilises the outdoor space close to her home to allow children to play outdoors safely as well as trips to the local park. I can not rate Lisa highly enough, and would throughly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to leave their child with.

Both my sons go to lisa’s and enjoy her home and family environment. They have been enjoying Lisa’s company for almost a year and I feel I am leaving them in such safe hands when I go off to work. I find Lisa to be friendly, open, very flexible and above she simply cares! An absolute joy to find a childminder who is an all rounder! Professional and competent yet caring.

Our son Max is going to Lisa since October 2018, when he was 2 years and 6 months old. At the beginning he was crying, he didn't want to go to her, but in 2-3 weeks everything comes to normal and he really enjoyed to go to Lisa.
As we are from Moldova,Max didn't know any English words and I was worried how it will be, but now even at home he is speaking a little bit of English. I can see that he understands really good in English.
Now even we have a day off, he is asking me when he'll go to Lisa.
We like Lisa very much and we are very happy with her.

Lisa has been looking after our daughter since she was 7 months old. I was worried about going back to work so soon and leaving Isla all day, but having Lisa there to give Isla such a welcoming home from home made the process so much easier.
Isla is all smiles every morning when we drop her off and clearly loves her time with Lisa and playing with the other children Lisa looks after. Lisa's home is very relaxed and welcoming with a great mix of toys and park visits. She is brilliant at keeping us updated throughout the day with how Isla is getting on which is also very reassuring.
Lisa has been extremely flexible to our needs as well which has been such a help as my husband and I both commute to London for work.
We are very sad to be moving home and therefore having to say goodbye to Lisa - but thank you Lisa for everything!

Lisa has been looking after our daughter Mila since she was six months old and she has been absolutely brilliant. Lisa uses an app which is brilliant, you can keep up to date with everything your little one is doing, we loved seeing photos of Mila and everything she got up to that day!

Lisa is a brilliant childminder and I cannot recommend her enough, she is a warm, friendly and caring childminder who all of our future childminders will be compared to. Thank you for everything!
