About Me

Hello, my name is Clare and I am an OFSTED registered Childminder following the Early Years Foundation Stage; I am a member of the Professional Association for childcare and early years, have my level 2 Paediatric first aid and have an enhanced CRB. I had my Ofsted Inspection on 26/06/2018 where I was graded GOOD in all areas. I live with my husband Darren who is also CRB checked and registered as my childminding assistant. We have two children; both boys. My eldest is 5 years old and my youngest is 4 years. I also have two wonderful grownup step children. We live in a property on the links estate in Consett, where I provide children with a safe, happy environment and an entire room full of resources and toys to ensure children meet all aspects of the Early Years Foundaton Stage. We have a quiet room upstairs and we carry out many other activities; indoors and outdoors, as well as trips to the park, softplays, swimming, baby/toddler groups etc; having lots fun and learning at the same time.

My children settled really quickly with Clare and love going to see her. She is very flexiable with working hours and can accomodate short notice. I would highly recommend to other parents.
