About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

I live in Henley-on-Thames with my children (aged 12, 10 and 7 years old) and our Bassett Hound (age 9). I've been an Ofsted Registered Childminder for 6 years. I had an Ofsted inspection in March 2018 and I received a "good" rating. I am DBS Checked and First Aid trained. I offer child care Mondays - Fridays all year round for children aged 0 - 12 years old.

Having used childminders and nurseries myself, I understand how difficult it can be choosing the best childcare for your precious little ones. My emphasis is to provide an environment where children feel happy, relaxed and safe. I can offer a stimulating environment and give children the oppertunity to have fun while being creative and developing their minds and body through various activities such as:

Playing - Role play, puzzles, play dough and lots of other fun and educational toys.


Painting and drawing, arts and crafts


Playing musical instruments

Dancing and exercising to music

Garden fun - Digging, growing, water and sand play as well as bikes, cars, scooters, climbing frame to practice and develop children's physical skills.

We regularly visit various local playgrounds, soft play and toddler groups.

I do drop off/collection from Sonning Common Primary School and from local nurseries/pre-schools.

Madelein looked after my daughter Nellie from 1years old Oct 2018-Sep 2019 at which point I went on maternity leave again. Nellie had a fantastic time playing with Madelein’s children and Columbo the dog - she was always so well looked after and Madelein was really flexible with our needs which we were really grateful for. She went out of her way to make things as easy as possible for us. We were so sad that Madelein and family had to move away - she’ll be very hard to replace! I would t hesitate to recommend Madelein as a childminder.

Madelein looked after my daughter for 18 months. From 11 months old Madelein looked after and cared for her for 10 hours a day for four days a week. Leaving my only child with a stranger was the hardest thing I've ever had to do... I had absolutely nothing to worry about with Madelein. She's an amazing, person and a brilliant mummy to her own three children. She welcomed my daughter into her home and treated her as one of her own, helped her to walk, talk and develop into a kind, polite and caring young lady. Columbo (doggy) is brilliant with the children too and my daughter loved him. Elsie loved going to Madelein's and loved all of her children like family. She misses them still and still asks when she's going "Madins" house. Any child in Madelein's care would be well looked after!
Cannot recommend this lady highly enough!!
