About Me

My name is Rachel im a qualified ofsted register childminder since 2010 and I live in Sandwich. I have 2 boys of my own aged 12 and 15 My husband is a director for a large local company. We live very close to all amenities, and regularly use them. We are often found at the park with a football or cricket bat in tow. Both my children enjoy sports and also participate in Drama, Dance and music classes. We have many toys for all ages, gender and religion and enjoy lots of craft activities (especially junk modelling). My children love having friends back, and we are often told by friends and family that this is a very happy house.

My Experience

I have been registered as a childminder for 6 years now and have looked after children of various ages from 6 months - 12 years.

I can't thank and recommend Rachel enough for everything she has done for our son and for me since he started in August this year. I was so apprehensive about leaving my 6 month old baby with anyone and especially someone I didn't know but Rachel's care is like a home from home. And the ladies she has working with her are all simply wonderful. My son loves being there and I have no worries at all about leaving him as he is just so loved and cared for. I can't recommend Rachel and her staff enough and all I can say is a very big THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart. I know my son will just love growing up along side you, the girls and the other children in your care. xx

Rachel started looking after my 4-year-old boy and 1-year-old girl earlier this year when our previous childminder gave us notice that she was leaving the area. Our daughter had only been in childcare a month and we were very concerned about her settling in a new environment so soon. Our son was also very used to and fond of his former setting. But they have both thrived in Rachel's care. Rachel is so caring and supportive of the children AND the parents and the activities and trips the children do and take leave them happy and wonderfully exhausted! My baby girl came home chirping with happiness on her very first week. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rachel and her team to any parent but especially one who is anxious about leaving their little one for the first time.

I have 2 children (6 and 4) Rachel has been childminding them for the last 8 months - a couple of days a week - before and after school and during the holidays. My cihdren love her to bits, she cares for them well and always has activities planned which they love and either are educational or keep them active. She has a lovely dog - and my son (who used to be nervous around dogs) is a huge fan of him.

The days Rachel looks after them are the only ones that my children are enthusiastic about getting ready for in the morning! I would highly reccommend her to other parents!

Rachel has looked after my two daughters after school and in school holidays since last September. She has a lovely family home near the centre of Sandwich, with two sons of her own and a gorgeous dog called Charlie who loves children. She does lots of things with them like making cakes and going to the cinema and they really love going there - it's like having a second mum but one who is younger than me and much more fun!
