I have been childminding for 28 years. I have five children of my own aged from 11 to 27 years old. I have another Registered Childminder registered at my premises.
We provide Care, for a minimum of 3 sessions per week.
Children have individual Early Years Foundation Stage profiles, that allows for planning and their individual learning goals. Parents will receive regular updates in their observation books and get the opportunity to take their profiles home to look at the activities that their child has done and their next steps.
Parents are asked to provide a photograph album, or purchase one from us, so that the excess pictures (not used in profile) can be put in for you to keep, to look back on.
I am registered with Ofsted and I am a member of The National Chilminding Association.

My son started with Tina when he was 9 months old, he is now 4 and a half years old. He has always been very settled and enjoyed his time there. My son always ate very well, the meals are home cooked and sounds so tasty! I was very impressed with all the work and activities they completed. My son loves being outside and Tina’s outside area is amazing.
Tina is very approachable, I trust her 100% and I wouldn’t want to use anyone else.
Ps- My daughter has now started with Tina. I’m sure she will have an amazing journey with Tina as well.
Our son attended Tina's from the age of 15 months until he was 4. Tina was so adaptive to his needs, understanding of things he found tricky and supportive for us as a whole family. We loved the fact that he was literally entering a home away from home each time we dropped him off. Food was excellent and so very varied. He left there ready for Reception, both socially and academically. We couldn't thank Tina and her family enough for the care, support, teaching and love that they showed out son.
Tina is fantastic! My son receives excellent care, fantastic home cooked meals and does several activities each day. He comes home with all sorts of work that he's done and is engaged in learning numbers and letters in a fun seting. He behaves himself well and uses his manners and Tina focuses well on making sure the children communicate well and are social. She keeps parents updated with albums of work and photos as well. He used to go to a nursery but he really came out of his shell more and seemed more engaged in learning when he went to Tina. He even came home with a cupcake he'd helped to make one day so the activities are varied. I'm so glad that I found Tina as I wouldn't want to use anyone else.
Our daughter has had such a lovely experience with Tina for the last two years. She has loved going 3 days a week and has grown in confidence as a little girl. Tina has always been very supportive of us as a family and has given excellent care to our daughter. The outdoor area at Tina's is brilliant, and the food is home-cooked and fresh every day. We are really very happy with the care and support our daughter has received here. We would use Tina again without a doubt.
I have been using Tina's childminding to care for my children for the past 3yrs and wouldn't use anyone else. My eldest was sad to be leaving Tina's to start school but I can honestly say that the teaching, support and care Tina and Sara showed him during his time there prepared him for the next stage. He always came out with a smile on his face and spoke excitedly of things he had done with his friends. He especially loved the garden! Now it is the turn of my youngest. A couple of weeks in and she is already settled and loving Tina's childminding. I can't speak highly enough of Tina's Childminding, Tina and Sara are amazing
