About Me

I am a fully qualified, experienced, registered home from home child minder @Lisa's Mini'uns in the Gelli Primary School catchment area. I am 42 years old and I have been married for 20 years. I have 2 children at home, and 2 adult children who live away. We also have an elderly friendly cat who is good with children. My husband works full time as a printer/designer.

We own our own home in a very quiet street, with very little traffic, a front and rear secure garden, overlooking some pretty allotments and a river at the rear.

I try to care for children in a natural, home from home manner, while still meeting all the guidance from CIW and the Foundation Phase. Their happiness and well-being is the most important factor that drives me, and is the focus of every day.

My Experience

Being a parent of 3+, there's not much I haven't seen, and very little phases me. I am a fairly laid back person who believes in consistency and routine for children, while also having lots of fun and being flexible to their needs.

I have experience with eczema, food allergies, mess and noise, children with ASD, ADHD and communication difficulties. And I am happy to care for all children with additional needs aslong as my setting can meet their needs.

I continually improving my skills and knowledge with frequent training.

I am part of the local childminding network with the local council, which means I get monitoring meetings to ensure I am doing my best.

My Qualifications

I would highly recommend Lisa, she is an excellent childminder and babysitter and my daughter loves her dearly and I completely trust her with my daughter. My daughter has developed so much since going there and we have have used her services for the last few years and will continue to do so. She promotes healthy a diet for the children and the app is updated regular to inform of meal choices and she does plenty of activities with children in her care. Also her communication is excellent as she always updates you when necessary. Lisa is also very supportive and easy to talk to if you have any worries or just need to talk. The best childminder ever!
