About Me

My name is Grace Okeke and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder with OUTSTANDING grade for Ofsted inspection in June 2019. I provide quality and affordable childcare to children of all ages and abilities, which I enjoy doing. I provide home from home experience with added learning & exploring. Nothing gives me more joy than to see the children in my care grow with lots of knowledge, skills and confidence. I follow the guidelines set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage handbook to plan suitable activities for the children to ensure that they are learning and developing as expected for their age. I live in Erith town centre, which is full of places to visit, explore and learn such as Erith leisure centre, Erith library, play groups, shops, riverside, parks and many more. I live very close to Erith train station and bus stops that serve many places. My Childminding Services is open weekdays, 7am to 7pm.
I currently provide school drop and pick at Christ Church Primary School.
In addition, I provide delicious meals and snacks.

My Experience

I have lots of experiences looking after children, which I gained through providing childcare for people and I have three children of my own. I interact very well with children. My passion is to give children the best start in life by using suitable materials and activities to help them learn and develop.

Grace was the first outside of the family to look after my son so I was very anxious about leaving him. But Grace was very kind and welcoming to both me and my 18 month old. When we first entered her home he immediately left me and had a look at all the toys and posters. He had never done that before. Even though his time with Grace was short I know he definitely enjoyed it. He will definitely be returning. Thank you for your help Grace!

My wife and I required a childminder for one month in September. Grace was able to help us out at very short notice.
She provided an excellent service for out 2 year old daughter and was very flexible.
Our daughter really enjoyed her time with Grace, and was always bringing home art work she had done during her day. She was really happy here.
At the end of her stay, Grace provided our daughter with a bag of gifts which was ever so sweet.
I would have no hesitation in using Grace again and would highly recommend to any other parents who are looking for a childminder.

Grace very professional keeps you updated with your child and they learn a lot in her setting.
Grace is very understanding I do shift work and my working days changes but she’s always ready to take my child.
I highly recommend her

Grace is a great Child minder, I trust her with my child. She encourage my child in his development which is fantastic and she goes according the EYFS and we work hand in hand in any areas regards my child. She is very flexible in regards the days and last minute booking which helps me as that occurred often at my work and knowing she goes along with it is a huge reliefe for me.

I could not ask for a better child minder and my child loves her 😊.
