About Me


Hello, my name is Rachel. I am an OFSTED registered childminder with 4 years experience offering competitive rates and flexible contracts in Ashford.

Being an ex primary school teacher with 9 years experience in an OFSTED rated OUTSTANDING school, I am passionate about working with children.

I am a member of PACEY and hold Public Liability insurance and Paediatric First Aid certificates.

I regularly attend local toddler groups, visit the library and make use of the local parks which are within easy walking distance of my home. We also visit places further afield using my 6 seater car which has fully comprehensive business insurance.

I have a large variety of resources to engage and entertain a variety of age groups. In addition to this I regularly involve the children in arts and crafts/messy play both indoors and in my fully enclosed garden which has artificial grass so can be used all year round.

I would encourage and welcome any prospective families to visit my childcare set up, in order to demonstrate my knowledge and passion of early years childcare.

For a polite and friendly service, please call me to discuss your requirements.

Thank you

Below are the latest reviews for Rachel P. 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.

My 1 year old boy absolutely loves Rachel and is very at home with her. They go out on trips to local toddler groups, or further afield like Leeds Castle, Rare Breeds Centre, Howletts etc. It's lovely being able to take him somewhere where he is really happy and I trust Rachel 100% with him. Each day, Rachel writes in a journal for him too, letting us know what they have been up to that day, and i also get photo updates from her each day my son is there.

I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a childminder in Ashford. A lovely setting and lady who will take care of your child brilliantly.
