I am 41 years old. I am a ofsted registered childminder. I have three children of my own, their ages range from 4years to 18years, I also have a pet called Max who is a Cavalier King Charles. He loves children and is very good with them. Prior to minding I was a teaching assistant for the eight years. I have a current DBS, Safeguarding, First aid paediatric and First aid at work certificate. I will be following the EYFS (early years foundation stage) in all seven areas of learning. I'm offering a home from home environment which is fun, happy and safe for my young people. I have a clean UK driving licence.
I have been working in early years for the last fourteen years. I've been working in a local school that currently has an outstanding status via Ofsted. I've worked both in year one and year three and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've now been childminding for three and half years. I love working with the little ones and enjoy doing different daily activities. Some of the activities that we do are:- messy play, drawings, paintings, outside fun, park visits, toddler groups, cooking, library visits, free play and lots more.

My daughter has been going to Bonnie since September 2019 . She loves coming to her house and she always wants to stay there longer. Bonnie’s house is extremely clean. She is very friendly , kind and professional childminder . I would without a doubt recommend her to everybody!
Response by Bonnie on 11/11/2019:
Thank you Anna for your lovely feedback. I am so pleased that you are very happy with the service you are receiving and that your daughter is happy in attending my setting. I look forwards to seeing your daughters development. X
Our little boy has been with Bonnie since September, since he has attended he has come on leaps and bounds starting walking, started to say words and happily interacts with other children. Every time our boy gets out of the car he becomes super excited and starts going crazy to get inside. Her house is extremely clean and tidy, our little boy is cared for By Bonnie like he was her own. Our little boy loves her son and constantly gives kisses and cuddles.
I am extremely happy with Bonnie care for our son, her communication and paperwork is very efficient, always keeps us up to date with our sons progress. Bonnie always send photos of our son. She goes beyond with communicating with us.
Would definitely recommend.
Response by Bonnie on 09/11/2019:
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. It is an absolute pleasure looking after your son. He is such a happy baby and a delight to have around the setting. I look forwards to seeing him progress and flourish throughout his time with me. X
I cannot tell enough about how happy I am that I found Bonnie! She is amazing, friendly, professional childminder.
As mentioned in the previous review, she provides high quality childcare with an extra touch. My daughter loves going to Bonnie and I feel secure and safe when leaving her at Bonnie's house. My daughter was only 15 months when we started to leave her at Bonnie's, but all the attention and love she received made it special for our little one very quickly!
House is extremely clean, Bonnie's family is great, polite, amount of the toys is incredible and there is great garden with an outdoor playing area for the kids. She takes them out to explore the world, to play, to meet other children.
Receiving daily photos is making my long day at work much easier! My daughter development is great.
I love our good fairy Bonnie :)))

I dont hesitate to highly recommend Bonnie as a great childminder to other parents.
Response by Bonnie on 26/02/2017:
Thank you very much for this lovely feedback. It has been a pleasure looking after your daughter and seeing her progress. I will miss her when she leaves in March. Thank you so much for believing in me when I very first started a year ago. I will always remember both yourself and your daughter. x
We are so lucky to have found Bonnie, she is perfect for us.
She treats our little one as if she was her own, and she had become a member of her family. Out little one loves her whole family and is excited when we say it's Bonnie time. Which is great when you have to trust someone with your child whilst you go to work.
Bonnie does fun stuff with her kids everyday and I get lovely photos of the fun they are having together; painting, playing at the park or days out.
Her extremely clean home is full of fun toys, great food and lots of love. Bonnie is very up to date with all the paperwork so everyday you know exactly what they've done/eaten/slept which really is lovely to have to read.
We are so thankful to have found Bonnie and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder but feeling anxious, look no further, you've found Mary Poppins.
