About Me

My name is Rachel and I am an OFSTED registered 'Outstanding' childminder based in Worksop on Kilton Hill. I live with my partner John and my beautiful daughter Olivia age 3.
I am a qualified teacher, who up untill having my youngest child was employed by Myerscough College in Lancashire. Since the birth of my youngest daughter I have decided to focus on a career in childcare. I feel that my skills and experience gained throughout my teaching career would be better used in caring for children in the home environment. I hope to provide parents with the confidence to return to work knowing thier child is in a loving,caring and safeplace.
Throughout my career I have gained experience working with children with special educational needs. I found this area of my work very rewarding and felt very passionate about making a difference to these childrens lives.
It has always been a passion of mine to work with young children. We opperate from a purpose built setting within the grounds of our home. The setting is 40 square meters and can accomodate up to 12 children. The setting is as close to the 'home from home' feel as possible. It has its own kitchen area, bathroom facilities, which have been designed for wheelchair access, art area, lounge/comfy area, baby & sleeping area & playroom. The setting has underfloor heating to provide a luxurious feel and to keep our babys warm as the learn to crawl and walk. The setting has its own access and car parking facilities and a beautiful secure garden with an abundance of activites for children to freely play with, including a mud kitchen, den, herb garden and climbing equipment. In addition to this we have an enclosed outdoor area where children can play outside despite the weather conditions. We promote lots of free play and fresh air. To appreciate our setting we would like to invite you to come and look around so you can get a true feeling of what we are all about.
I will provide a quality childminding service that is tailored to meet your families needs. I aim to meet your high expectations. I will provide a reliable, flexible, stimulating and happy home from home setting for your child, to enable them to grow into confident, young individuals. My home is open to children of all ages and i care for siblings.Our unique setting allows me to give quality care and attention to your child.
