About Me

** I currently have before and after school spaces available. I drop off and collect children from Craneswater Junior School, Southsea Infant School and St Swithuns Primary School. Message me for details.**

I'm an Ofsted Registered "Outstanding" childminder and qualified teacher from the Southsea area of Portsmouth.
I offer a welcoming and professional childcare service within a home from home environment.
My setting is warm and friendly. I have a good range of toys and offer excellent learning experiences, both indoors and on regular outings. I have a purpose built playroom; equipped with crafts, reading area, cosy areas, role-play, kitchen area, changing and toileting area. This dedicated play space gives children access to wide range of activities; including art and making, music, cooking, imaginary play, sensory play and so on. I'm a keen gardener, so children get to be involved in lots of activities in the garden; including growing plants and harvesting fruit and vegetables. I enjoy helping children learn through the outdoors and experiencing the Natural World. They are provided with first-hand experiences both inside and out.
I have several pets, with whom the children love interacting; including a large and very docile leonberger dog named Tilly, a friendly labradoodle called Maisie, guinea pigs, and a friendly cat named Ember.
I complete daily diaries, with live updates and photos, and regular progress reviews for children of preschool age.
My setting is a great place for the youngest and older children to enjoy each other's company and learn from each other.

My daughter settled very quickly with Becky and loved every minute of her day there. The way my daughter always asked about Becky showed how much she loved attending the setting.

Becky provides a great range of activities and experiences for the children.

I'm very sad my daughter is not attending the setting anymore.

Would highly recommend Becky as a childminder.

Thank you so much Jody. I will miss yoi all. Hopefully we can stay im touch and I'll be able to look after ❤ again soon, once things are settled down with Covid19 xx

Becky is absolutely brilliant, our daughter adores her.

Not only does Becky provide a caring environment but also an educational one, our little girl has learnt a great deal during her time with Becky and always relates an interesting tale of her day when we collect her.

We are hoping Becky will have availability for our second soon, we really couldn’t ask for a better childminder.
