About Me

I have been a childminder for 14 years. I studied in Kent, where I gained a level 3 in early years and childcare. I moved to Wisbech where I started a nursery job and when I had my daughter I decided to set up my own day-care. I treat the children like my own and it's a very personal service given to everyone. I like to work closely with parents to develop their child to their full potential. Offering a stimulating environment to enable this. I like to take the children on outings, attend play groups regularly and invite other childminders to my setting to join in activities. In my OFSTED inspection I was graded a good (in November 2018) I have excellent references. I have three children aged 14, 10 and 2.

My Experience

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Roxanne. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Would my child’s needs be met as well as I was doing at home? Would the care provider be willing to follow the routines I had worked so hard to establish? Would my child get an early years education or just have her physical needs met? These were just some of the worries I had prior to leaving my child when returning to work. Leaving your child for the first time with someone you have spent half an hour with prior to the first day is really scary and natural but I can honestly say that my concerns were not needed. Roxanne has provided a consistent 5* service and more importantly, has opened up her home to my child and offered her the same care, discipline and education she gives to her own children.

Roxanne is my first experience of childcare and early years education and I make no secret of the fact that parenting has at times been a challenge. As with most children, my daughter has had her “moments” and while Roxanne has fulfilled her duty of working incredibly hard to instil excellent behaviour and a sense of right and wrong in my daughter when she is in her care, the other outstanding quality is the support she has offered to me during these hard times. Roxanne has given me massive amounts of reassurance and given me suggestions on techniques I could try to produce the outcomes I wanted and has always been willing to integrate my ideas into the way she cares for my daughter to ensure the consistency she knows children need.

I never expected to develop a working relationship as positive as the one that exists with Roxanne; she never clocks off and is always willing to support her childminding families out of hours. She is always coming up with new, innovative ways of enriching the children’s experiences and pouring pure joy into their lives. Roxanne makes time everyday to talk to parents about the day their child has had and I remember being worried about whether I would feel like I knew how my child’s day had really been but again, this was unfounded.

My daughter has loved every day she has been with Roxanne and I firmly believe that her setting provides more than would be possible in a nursery. The children go out on trips at least once a week, if not more frequently and get to socialise with children from other childminding providers very frequently too. My daughter has developed excellent relationships with multiple adults and lots of lovely little children while also making excellent progress with her developmental milestone. I had the option to send her to pre-school but made the decision that she would be better placed to stay with Roxanne, as I believe she’s getting a head start for when she does start school because of the personalised learning she is receiving and has received since she was a baby.

I could talk all day about all the wonderful things Roxanne does for my child and the other children in the setting but ultimately, the most important thing to know is that Roxanne will care for your child as she does her own and you’ll never have to worry about the quality of care, safety, education or fun your child is having while at Little Peaches.

Roxanne is an amazing individual who really cares about the children she childminds. Both of my young children have been looked after Roxanne (from 9 months old), and I have been really impressed with her creativity, her enthusiasm and her ability to get the most out of each child. Both of my children really enjoy going and benefit hugely from the personalized interaction she gives. Not only does Roxanne do really creative activities at home with the children, she also takes them out and about mixing with other children and groups. My older child has just started school and it's clear that the start Roxanne has given her has meant she is excelling at school now and I'm hugely appreciative of that.

Roxanne has been accomodating and flexible from the start and our 10 month old loves little peaches. She has a wealth of resources and knowledge of child development and I feel very confident in leaving my daughter with her all day. The children experience a variety of activities which are both age appropriate and challenging enough to encourage developmemtal milestones. Roxanne welcomes parental involvement and provides a service which makes the guilt of having to leave your little one just that bit more manageable.
