About Me

Hi my name is Lori, I am 43 years old and I run a busy house with 4 kids and a lovely little dog called Sula.* We are an active bunch and are out and about and up to mischief all the time..... we love muddy puddles, painting and generally being noisy and having fun. My husband is a very active part of the team and is on hand to help out with school runs, adventures and chill out time to ensure that homeworks are completed and healthy food is eaten...... We have opened up our home for little people for 2 years now and really enjoy it. We offer flexible care in a loving environment. We have a large home with a dedicated playroom and a spacious garden with plenty of outdoor toys for all ages. I am based in the heart of the waterside easily accessible by car or on foot.
*.... Don't let Sula put you off... She has her own little den completely away from where the children roam about.

My Experience

I have always looked after little people as I come from a large family where everyone just mucked in. My working life was spent within the training sector working with young school leavers and those who were long term unemployed. I am a mum to five children the oldest 24 and the youngest just 5.... so I have a wealth of practical experience as well as a healthy knowledge of differing parenting styles and concepts. I have completed all the relevant training necessary to register as childminder and a few others as well. My children go everywhere and yours will too should you choose to entrust me with their care.

My Qualifications

My husband and I are fully trained in First Aid, Child Protection and Health & Safety.
Food Hygiene Level 2
Working with children who have english as an additional language
Understanding the impact of domestic violence
Working with children with autism

My Availability

I currently have full time space available from August and morning sessions term time only. I operate Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm, although longer hours are available on request. School pick-ups and drop-offs are available and with my husband an active part of the team he is on hand to assist with those, ensuring your little one is not stuck in the car killing time until everyone is rounded up.

Its always worrying and difficult to try and find a reliable and trustworthy childminder but that's exactly what we have with Lori and Rodney Campbell. They have looked after our 2 and a half year old son since he was 4 months. He is, as they also refer to him, as much a part of the family by now and actively looks forward to going to see the whole family. The interaction he get with them is fantastic, he's comfortable, settled and is growing up in their care and its great to know your in experienced and more than capable hands. We put him in for long hours and they often do lots of actives and spend as much time in the fresh air as possible, they have fun, eat healthily, live active lives, teach him loads....what more could you ask for? Its great going around to pick him up or drop him off as you know they are lively and bubbly and friendly. We would definitely recommend to anyone.

Lori has been minding my 5 year old boy for just over a year. He is extremely happy and thriving under the care given by both Lori and Rodney.It is a very safe and friendly atmosphere and I am happy in the knowlegde that he is spending quality time in the company of the other kids and Lori. They are both very interesed in taking kids out for outdoor activities and other play activities, weather permitting.Lori is very flexible with the timings and she is very accomodating on the odd occasion when I have needed extra childcare over weekends. Overall I am extremely satisfied with the care provided and they are like a second family for my wee boy.
