About Me

My name is Fiona and I am an OFSTED registered childminder. My husband and I have 4 grown up children and nine grandchildren. I have a dedicated, well equipped playroom and very large secure garden.

After working as a senior manager in the NHS for the past 21 years, I decided it was time to do something I have always wanted to do; combine work with having lots of fun, and that's what I do with the children. All children are individuals and will be treated as such.Children will benefit from a wide range of activities including plenty of outdoor play in our large garden, messy play, cooking, arts and crafts, visits to the park, library and soft play to name but a few.

I am enjoying my new career so much, that my husband has now decided to join me as my assistant.

My Experience

We have experience with bringing up 4 children who have given us 9 children between them. I have experience with children who have autism.

Fiona and Jeff have been looking after our son Jack for 16 months now.

Jack had just turned two when he first met Fiona, he took to her right away and clearly felt comfortable and relaxed. We felt confident that he would be well cared for. Now, Jack looks forward to the days he spends there.

The facilities that Fiona and Jeff have are really good, the play room is large and has lots of toys and books and the garden is also large and there is lots for the children to do there. Everything is always spotlessly clean.

Jack always enjoys his meals and he eats a variety of different food when he visits.

Fiona and Jeff have definitely helped with Jack's hand/eye co-ordination, doing arts and crafts with him. She was also a great help when potty training!

Fiona and Jeff give a daily update online which is really helpful and a good record of developments.

In summary, we can't recommend Fiona and Jeff highly enough. They will provide a safe and caring environment for your son/daughter and help them develop.

I am a first time mum and as expected was nervous about leaving my daughter (15 months) for the first time. Fiona had tried to put my mind at ease but it was hard the first few days.... well for me anyway! Abigail had a whale of a time and didn't want to come away. We had a few days where she has been a typical 1 year old but Fiona has been fantastic and treated her like her own. This makes all the difference for me and my husband and she will go above and beyond for anyone. It Never ceases to amaze me how much she can fit into a day and the diary I receive makes me so comfortable that she is doing everything she can for our daughter and her friends. The house is beautiful, clean and tidy and has so much space for the children to play inside and out. Abigail and us are pleased we found Fiona I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you

I was nervous about moving Henry (2yrs) from nursery to a childminder but I needn't have worried. Henry settled in by day 2 and loves Fiona so much he has started to call her Grandma!!
Fiona is a warm and loving lady who clearly cares for the children she looks after.
The home is lovely clean and child friendly with a playroom and a huge garden that Henry loves to play in. Fiona does a huge variety of activities with the children both at home and out and about and Henry really enjoys the time he spends with her.
Fiona is approachable and meets all Henry's needs and more. His daily activities, diet and progress are all documented on a secure online diary along with pictures of his day which I love to see.
I would highly recommend Fiona to anyone who is looking for childcare in a loving, fun and caring setting.
