About Me

I have been childminding for 23 years. I have five children of my own aging from 7 to 23 years old. My Assistant, who is also a Registered Childminder, has been with me for many years.

My Experience

We provide Care, for a minimum of 3 days per week, 2 of those must be full days.

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 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.

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.

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

My two boys went to Tina’s from 6 months old until they were 4 and 6. Tina, Sara and Caz are a great team! They get to know the children so well and tailor learning to the needs of the children. The environment is outstanding, especially the garden! The best thing is my boys adored going and they were loved and cared for so well. I can’t rate Tina’s highly enough - thank you!

My son was at Tina' s childminding for over 18 months, the staff are brilliant, and the preparation my son received readying him for school was fab. He's now started school and settled right in and I'm sure a large part of that is down to Tina' s. Great environment and great communications.

My Daughter (nearly 2) absolutely loved attending Tina’s Childminding. Prior to joining my Daughter had difficulty with walking as she has hyper mobility, the team really helped her grow her confidence and as a result she came on leaps and bounds! Tina & her team are so friendly and very easy to talk to. I will definitely be sending my Son when he’s a little older!

I had to return to work when my son was just 7 months old. Tina and the ladies met with me and showed me around they made me feel right at home. I knew then this was the place for Oliver.
We have detailed diary’s with photos showing activity’s and our sons development. Any concerns the ladies are just a call away.
I work shifts and everyone has been so accomadating and flexible.
Our son loves tina, Sarah and Kaz he always comes home telling us what a great day he has had.
These ladies have been with my son through teething, bottle feeding, weaning and potty training. I have never once gone to work anxious as I know he is just fine. These ladies are a big reason my son has developed the way he has and I will always be so greatful.
I will be sad when he has to leave for school.
