About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder offering wrap around care for school aged children. I offer full time spaces during the school holidays.

I love working with children and enjoy helping them to reach their full potential. I am committed to keeping children safe and well nurtured whilst having lots of fun with them. I have a deep understanding of how children learn and develop and recognise that every child is unique.

Bright Blossoms Childcare provides a home from home environment which aims to be inclusive and welcoming to all. We have a large outdoor log cabin which provides children with the freedom to choose activities as well as lots of space to play and have fun! We also use the downstairs area of our home allowing children to benefit from a quieter, more homely environment. We have a huge variety of educational toys and resources for all ages and stages of development. The garden provides children with lots of space for outdoor play. We are in the process of setting up a mud kitchen and a herb and vegetable garden! The children also have the option to choose their own plants to grow and care for.

I constantly monitor and evaluate all aspects of the provision to inform continuous improvement. I have high expectations of all children and endeavour to give them the best possible experiences whilst in my care.

My Experience

I have enjoyed working with children for over 10 years in a variety of different settings including in a primary school, day nursery and an after school club.

I enjoyed studying and working as a teacher but I love working with children in an environment where I can get to know each one individually, planing fun and exciting activities.

I have been childminding for the past 2 years and have loved every minute of it!

Below are the latest reviews for Lynda. 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.

I just asked my son to write the first part of this review.

This is what he said "9/10, Lynda is really nice, its fun, with lots of things to do and nice food".

I have no worries when I leave my son there. I always know that when I pick him up, he'll have a big smile on his face. Its obvious Lynda loves her job. She's full of smiles and is very warm and thinks outside of the box when it comes to keeping the kids busy.

My 5 year old daughter spends after school hours with Lynda from Monday to Friday. She absolutely loves it and I am extremely happy with the care she receives. Lynda’s home is always welcoming and well organized; all the children have great fun with her. She provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise.
She also provides children variety of healthy food. She always make sure to give me daily feedback on how the day has been.
Lynda is honest and trustworthy and I am thoroughly happy with the level of care my daughter receives.
I absolutely recommend Lynda as a great and reliable childminder.
