About Me

Hi, my name is Paula McGovern and I live in the Broomhill area of Ingleby Barwick with Jon, my partner and my 2 daughters.
The school I drop off at and collect is St Francis of Assisi Primary.
I have been an Ofsted registered Childminder since 2009.
I have a purpose built play room that has a wide range of toys, books and resources for all ages and a garden that is also equipped and enclosed.
My aim is to provide a safe and caring environment for your child, I will encourage your child to learn autonomously and as part of a group, be able to make their own decisions and develop to their full potential. I acknowledge that you the parents are the primary carers of your child and I will work closely with you to gain knowledge of your child and their experiences.
My main aim is to ensure all children in my care are happy, educated, safe and secure and enjoy their childhood to the fullest.
