About Me

Space available for those children of carers who are under the key-worker criteria. I offer DAYCARE and OVERNIGHT care
Hello,
I have many years of extensive experience of working with children and have worked as a Teacher for 6 years. I am an Ofsted registered childcare provider who has a passion for taking care of children and helping them progress and become the best that they can be.
I have been working with children since I was 18 and I have been a Nursery and Year rs 1 teacher. I have also had experience of working in a baby room during my NVQ 2 training and have first-hand experience of looking after my own son.
I understand how precious your child is and I will do my utmost to keep them safe and happy. I will provide them with stimulating activities and follow parents wishes in terms of routine etc. My home has a welcoming feel, I have a spacious indoor and outside area and a huge range of exciting toys.
I love interacting with children and helping them develop. I can create a good rapport quickly and believe in listening to children and in using positive behavioural techniques. I have a DBS check and can present qualifications upon request. Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon.

Natalie is brilliant. She's been looking after our little man for nearly two years from aged 1 to 3, and is warm, caring, gentle and patient. She has helped his development massively especially his language - we can always tell when he has been as he is very chatty. She always does a range of activities with the children - arts, crafts, music, singing, reading as well as lots of fun toy time and garden time- her new place is lovely and very homely. she has been as flexible as she can with us if we needed to drop off early or have extra time, really helpful with challenges such as clingy days or potty difficulties. I would really recommend her . She will be missed by all of us -

My daughter had never been apart from me and really struggled with settling in but Natalie did a great job of gaining her confidence and making a secure attachment with her. You can tell she genuinely cares about the children she cares for and I always felt my daughter was safe with her. She was also really supportive of me when I was anxious leaving her in the beginning.

Thanks Natalie for taking good care of our 3 yr old son and help him make comfortable with the new place and language , ever since we moved to UK in the beginning of this year. He really enjoyed coming to your place every day.

Natalie has given our 2y old the most excellent care, and much love. Her house and garden are lovely and conforting, full of activities and sensory stimulations best-suitable for babies and toddlers. She has been very attentive, very patient, we highly appreciate her way with small children.

Thank you Annabel. Your little girl was a delight to care for, I miss her. I wish her a very bright and happy future. Take care, Natalie

We were so happy to find Natalie. She cared for our son for 8 months, which was his first experience of spending any significant time away from home. Natalie really went out of her way to help him settle, and provided a warm, caring and supportive environment in which he's really flourished. Natalie organised daily activities were varied, fun & stimulating. Our son has made great progress developmentally and this is on no small part due to Natalie's input. We'll miss her!
