I have always had a career working with children and was previously a teaching assistant for 6.5 years In early years and key stage 1.

I offer home from home child care in a happy and friendly environment.
We have lots of fun while learning.
I have an insulated log cabin for my setting which includes lots of fun and educational resources, role play area etc. It is also air conditioned In summer and heated in winter. We will use my house and the log cabin depending on the activities. My garden will also be open for the children whatever the weather as free flow for them.
I have a strong passion for working with children and helping them to learn and grow.

My daughter started with Rebecca when she was 9 months old. Obviously I was nervous to leave her to start with but Rebecca put my mind at ease straight away, sending photos throughout the day and treating her like she was part of her own family. Rebecca is honestly one of the kindest people I have ever met and I recommend her wholeheartedly. Her son is also so sweet and kind and his name was actually one of my daughters first words! Rebecca is incredibly honest and trustworthy and my daughter loved being there!!

Rebecca is INCREDIBLE. She is so gentle and sweet and my daughter Isabella settled with her immediately. I had no concerns leaving Bella with Rebecca whatsoever. She kept me informed of Bella’s day throughout, communication was fab.
Only reason we left Rebecca was because Bella had a full time place allocated with her brother at a nursery, but with Covid they reduced his hours and cut Bellas completely and Rebecca did everything she could to help us out.

She really is a gem.

Great setting with the play room in the garden and such a lovely homely feel.

I’d recommend Rebecca to everyone seeking childcare!!

From the moment I met Rebecca I knew I wanted her to care for my little girl being 1 when she started. I wanted a mother like figure for her as it was all such a new experience to us all as a family.
So she started & fitted in perfectly! Never unsettled & loves being with Rebecca & her little boy Bobby.
Every time we drive past her road, she says Becca’s house. We have been with Rebecca for just over 12 months & hope to keep her with her one day a week until I return to work from maternity leave.
My little one is constantly learning with Rebecca, story time, rhyme time & lots of role play activities. She listens to what we want as parents & puts this into practice. We are happy as parents leaving our little one with Rebecca.

Rebecca has been looking after my little girl for the past 18 months and sadly it came to an end this week as my little girl heads off to nursery. Rebecca really is a genuine, calm and lovely person who provides a clean and welcoming setting making your child feel like it is there second home. Rebecca has helped my daughter with her first steps and first words, counting and learning her alphabet as well as arts and crafts and lots of story time and singing! I’ve always had a happy little girl to pick up who always has something to show me from the days activities. A large log cabin is based in Rebecca’s garden full of lots of toys and activities for the children as well as trips to the library and local soft play. Rebecca communicates through the day with text messaging and picture updates. Her flexible working hours have made going back to work easier and I always felt comfortable to leave my daughter in Rebecca’s care. I highly recommend Rebecca she is truly lovely.

Rebecca provided a warm, nurturing and happy environment for my 3 year old and my 2 year old for several months upon my move to Ashford. Her experience in schools meant she had a clear understanding of early learning and my little boy came on lots with his speech whilst with her.

Whenever I picked them up I could always hear them singing songs and playing together. They also loved playing with Rebecca's son. Rebecca was always a positive and calming role model for them both and an excellent communicator via whatsapp, a daily diary and through verbal feedback. Thank you!
