About Me

My name is Samantha and I live in Toft Hill, Bishop Auckland, with my partner and little boy. I have been childminding for over 10years. Previous to that I was a childminder's assistant for 2 years
My sister has been working with me for over 5 years as my assistant.

There is an area for the children to play and learn. We also have a large secure garden.
I have a good understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage. I follow your child's interests and plan exciting activities, to help them to learn and develop. I encourage your child to learn and develop through play.

My Experience

Before I registered as a Childminder I helped my Nana who is also a Childminder and in February 2010 I became her assistant. I find working with children extremely rewarding.
