I have a level 3 in childcare and Education and have experience with newborns up to 11 year olds.
I have worked with children since leaving college. I was a party host and a pre school gymnastics coach then a gymnastics club coach. I then went to college to get my nursery nurse qualification whilst working at a day nursery. I was based in the 1 to 2 year olds room which I loved. I then went to work in school nurseries and did so for the next 10 years. The last school I was in for 7 years.
I live with my Husband Daniel, our three sons, aged 13, 10 and 8 and our cats Lady Penelope and Indy.
After the birth of my third son I went back to college and got my level 3 home based child care course and became a registered Childminder. I have been childminding for 6 years and I really enjoy it and my family really embrace the childminding children too.
I like to create a home from home experience. I go to local groups and the childminders group at the children's centre. I like to ensure my day is planned around the individual needs of the children I care for and their interests and to develop them in all areas.
I provide hot dinners and can cater for different dietary requirements.

Lisa (and her family) really gave our daughter everything and more !! They have helped her gain confidence, learn as well as have all the fun I’m so sad we left the area as leaving Lisa has been so tough on us all but the almost year we spent with her has been brilliant. We still get asked if she can go back months after saying our goodbyes. Thank you for everything Lisa, you have been the best second mummy we could have asked for !!

I am so pleased how happy you were with your daughters progress and the standard of care I gave her. You were a really supportive family too. We all miss her so much and wish you all the best in your new home.
Lisa was a fantastic childminder. So helpful and accomodating during the time our son was with her. He learned so much in the couple of months he was with her. He was 11 months old and was there for a short time but during this time his development was amazing. Lisa always had lots of fun things planned such as arts and crafts, sensory activities, dancing and outings ready for him each day. At the beginning he found it hard to adapt with being so attached to his mummy but by the end he was smiling as he drove up her street realising where he was off to. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for this unexpected review. Was a joy looking after your son and working with you both. Hope your move goes well. ☺️
My daughter has been going to Lisa for over two years now and I honestly couldn't ask for better care for my child. Ava is so happy, she has made so much progress and I know that she experiences such a wide range of creative, physical and social experiences that nurture her development. Lisa genuinely cares for every child and knows them so well.... Ava certainly feels like part of the family! As a working parent, it was great to be able to go off to work without having to worry about her. The communication between home and setting is brilliant and it is lovely to see regular photos of what she has been doing and learning. Lisa's flexibility has also been really appreciated, working around my partner's shifts and my working hours. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a 'home from home' environment for their child!
We have used Lisa as our babysitter for the past two years. She is an ofsted registered childminder and is well known to our own childminder and they often meet up. My daughter is very much at ease when she she babysits and we know she’s in safe and capable hands. A really lovely find!
Lisa has been looking after my son for a year, since he was 8 months old. She takes fantastic care of him, does lots of activities and he absolutely loves going. She takes him to different groups and has lots of other outings like the splash park. Lisa keeps me updated with pictures of what Finn has been up to and plays with him through the day. She also provided a wonderful book with photos of everything he has been doing, to take home at the end of term, as well as a daily diary with everything he has eaten, when he slept and what he has been doing. She has also been very useful when I've needed baby/parent advice! He gets on well with her sons, who are lovely, and is really treated as part of the family. Lisa also cooks him good, healthy meals, taking in to account any requests, and makes sure my son follows his routine (naps etc) during the day. I cannot recommend Lisa enough- I was dreading going back to work and it was so much easier know my son was going to her.
