About Me

I have been childminding for 26 years. I have five children of my own aging from 9 to 26 years old. I have another Registered Childminder registered at my premises, along with another Registered Childminder, who works alongside us.

My Experience

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.

Building facilities - Kitchen, ICT Facilities - Computers, Outdoor play equipment, Outdoor Playspace - Swings, Playroom, Quiet Area, Sleeping Area, Toys.

My Qualifications

Both myself and my co-childminder are NNEB Trained to Level 3. We are all trained in paediatric First aid and in Safeguarding. We have had vast experience working with children with special needs. We hold a Food Hygiene rating at five stars received from Environmental Health. We regularly attend Childminding Forum Meetings for training and updates.

My Availability

We are open from 7.00am until 8.00pm Monday to Friday. However, we currently have no available spaces for care after 5:30pm. Evenings are available, with prior arrangements and personal circumstances taken into consideration. No overnight care is undertaken unless in an emergency with our fully contracted children.

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

I can not recommend Tina's Childminding enough, they have supported me and enabled me to continue to work full time with the reassurance that my child will be looked after as I would myself. They have looked after my eldest who is now 12 year old, and more recently my youngest son who has just started full time school. My youngest is on the spectrum and they have supported my child and my family throughout with no judgement and only support, and have been flexible with Noel limitations and rigid routine.

Thank you to Tina's Childminding, for their help, service and care over the last 7 years. My youngest has now started full time school and we are all sad to be leaving Tina's. The ladies made my life easy and stress free while leaving my two children to go to work. They always go the extra mile and the whole experience has been a pleasure, I Can't express my gratitude enough. I would not have been able to both run my business and raise my kids without their invaluable help.

Sent my little girl to Tinas for 2 plus years and am about to send my 1 year old when I return to work. The amount my daughter came on in this time was amazing. They don’t only play, but learn so much. She loved attending Tinas 3 days a week and made many friends. Tina managed to get her eating a wider range of food which was great. She loved all of the staff and so do I. Easy to communicate with and very friendly. It’s sad my daughter won’t have to go anymore since starting reception but I am excited for my little boy to have to same experience there as she did. Tina provided school pick ups for me whilst on maternity leave which helped me a great deal. I trust her and her staff with my children’s lives and I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you. :)

Both my boys have been in Tina’s care now for a total of 4 years. They have been well loved and cared for and enjoyed their every single visit.
Their development has been clearly monitored and I have many portfolios to cherish and look back on. Tina’s garden being a highlight of my sons regular week ... weather app having to be checked for him before the visits.
I can’t rate Tina any higher. My son was 8 weeks old when he first started with her and he graduated today aged 4. Having to work means you have to hand your children over with trust and with Tina I have had no doubt ever that they weren’t fed happy and having the best of times.
Feeling grateful for the kindness and help as mother to mother has also been cherished for me.
I am now expecting my third and already booked in for his arrival. There is no one else I would chose x
