About Me

I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and have been registered for 30 years. I am a member of PACEY(formerly the NCMA) and Childminding Matters Network.

I live with my Partner and have 4 children aged 36, 34, 29 and 15, only the 15 year old still lives at home.

I live in a terraced house in Toothill with a small enclosed garden, I use the local parks for a larger play area and equipment.

Within my setting there are lots of opportunities for creative and outdoor play, books, toys, puzzles and games with lots to explore and discover.

My Experience

Below are the latest reviews for Marie Woodward. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our 2 year old has been with Marie for 19 months now, full time and we cannot praise Marie enough. The location is brilliant for those in the Wroughton or Witchelstowe area with a really quick and easy drive to drop off and pick up. Marie will go above and beyond to ensure your childcare needs are covered. Our 2 year old loves going and is always happy at the end of the day. Marie ensures a variety of activities throughout the week, visits to local parks, local toddler group, play dates with other childminders and their children and trips to KidsAbout. We would highly recommend Marie to others searching for a childminder.
