About Me

I am an ofsted registered childminder. I recieved a grading of good at my last inspection in October 2017. I have a NVQ3 in Childrens Care Learning and Development. I live on the outskirts of Carlisle (CA3 area), with my husband and daughter. I use a room at the rear of the house which is the main area where the children play and are cared for and a good size safe garden for the children to play in, which is well equipped with outdoor toys.
I believe in young children learning through play and I am experienced in providing the right kind of play opportunities and experiences to help your child achieve their full protential in all areas of learning.
I offer a range of activities crafts, roleplay,construction etc as well as taking the children on regular outings to toddler groups, soft play, parks and library so the children socialise outside of the home environment.
I am dedicated, reliable, self motivated and trustworthy person. I attend training to continue my professional development.

Mary is a very professional childminder, we had no concerns whatsoever while she was looking after our two daughters aged 2 and 4 years between September 2011 and April 2012.

She is a very relaxed person herself, and it is amazing how much information she can gather on your children and their home routine just with pure observation and listening. She is able and flexible to adapt to changes in childcare respectively, according to children’s/ families’ needs. Her communication skills are outstanding, her handovers are safe. She is very organised, even managed to organise school pickup in a nursery and two primary schools, when our older daughter attended her sessions. She encourages homework and writes into school logbooks. She cookes a wide variety of delicious meals and caters for special diets. Her beautiful home is very spacious. Our girls enjoyed the playrooms and the dining area on the ground floor, the privacy and isolation from the play area while having their afternoon nap in one of the upstairs bedroom, and the play in the very well equipped garden with a beautiful view to the countryside. They also enjoyed soft play at Walby Farmpark and at other places in Carlisle, playgroup sessions and visits at childminders. My little daughter, who was looked after by Mary 4 days a week, now joyfully remembers that she used to enjoy playing at Mary’s house, now adding on that she has been enjoying the sessons at her new childminder’s home in Seaham.
