About Me

Hi, I’m Heather Miciak and I’m an Ofsted registered childminder and a qualified teacher who loves being outdoors. I moved to Matlock 3 years ago with my husband and 2 daughters.

I’m registered with Derbyshire County Council to offer all 2, 3 and 4 year old funding as well as tax free childcare.

Our week varies from day to day with regular trips to the Farm Park, Crich Tramway Museum, Thornbridge Hall Gardens, Height’s of Abraham, in addition to going to different playgrounds, playgroups or local nature walks.
At present, I have 1 space on a Friday.

My Experience

I was a teacher for 15 years working across secondary and primary schools in both the UK and Europe. I registered as a childminder 2 years ago in order to have more time for my own children and it has been the best decision.
Since starting in the summer of 2022, I have looked after 7 children from the age of 9 months.

My Qualifications

QTS (15 years teaching experience) BA in European Studies with French and German, (also speak Spanish and very basic Polish) NCFE Cache Level 3 in Home-based Childcare, Full Paediatric First Aid, Up-to-date Safe Guarding Training and Food Hygiene and Clean Drivers Licence. Currently completing a Level 3 SENCO qualification and an NPQ in Early Years Leadership.

Our son was minded by Heather for 18 months. The service she was offering was exactly what we were looking for giving us the flexibility we needed at the time. We loved that our son got lots of opportunities to get out and do things - there were many trips to parks, farms, pumpkin picking, play areas, Heights of Abraham, zoo trip, activity groups, and more. We felt confient that our son was happy in a homely family environment, with varied lunches, and when they weren't out and about, there was lots of consdtructive play, craft, reading and language lessons. We would 100% recommend Heather to anyone looking for a childminder in the area. Thank you!

Heather has been a childminder for my daughter since she was 10 months old. I could not be happier with the service she provides.
Her kindness and care for the children she cares for is so wonderful to see! Heather has been both flexible and supportive during my transition back to work.

My daughter loves the trips out and activities Heather prepares. And her Dad and I enjoy seeing the photos that are shared :)
The environment is so homey , safe and calm. My daughter has maintained a good sleep routine and has all the equipment , books and toys she could wish for!

My little one, when collected is smiley , content, clean and always has a full belly !
If I could give 10 stars - I would !
