About Us

**Currently 1 space left for Childcare on Monday-Wednesday only** :) School Drop offs and pick ups & tuition fully booked. (Shoebox Cafe Childminding, Corsham)
Hi! My name is Samantha and I offer friendly, caring, patient, fun and dedicated care for your little ones. I am a fully OFSTED registered childminder and Primary School Teacher with over 12 years experience in Early Years and Primary education. I have a BEd Degree, I'm an active member of PACEY, fully insure, First Aid & Safeguarding trained and have a full driving license.
I am a new mum myself and now offer childminding and private tuition to local families. My gorgeous son Thomas (now nearly 2) and I look forward to welcoming your little ones into our home for lots of fun!
I deliver a very creative Early Years curriculum to all children under the age of 5 with a Cafè theme to encourage positive healthy eating, manners, knowledge of a huge variety of foods whilst developing their fine motor skills through cooking. I deliver engaging, motivating and creative learning experiences, differentiated for all abilities and aged children in my care. I provide all families with learning journals of your child’s developments during their time with me. I strive to provide excellent assessment feedback as being a parent myself, those milestones are precious.
In keeping with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, I provide many different indoor and outdoor activities such as; PE (FUNS-Fundamental skills), sensory play, drama, puppets, den building, bouncy castle fun, singing & dancing, dressing up, arts & crafts, story time, music, sand and water play and free play.
My groups are small, with my son included, to ensure high quality care at all times as well as encouraging friendly social skills. I am lucky enough to have recently expanded my business and taken a wonderful assistant, Melissa to support me throughout parts of the week. She has many years in experience in Early Years education, in fact, she minded my own son, who adores her and we're very lucky to have her here.
The children and I enjoy Katherine Park which is right on my doorstep and we attend local playgroups, community childminding group events and activities in Corsham and we love wildlife bug walks!

For more in depth learning support, I offer private one to one tutoring lessons outside of my childminding hours for children aged 5 to 16.

If you're interested, I look forward to hearing from you. Take Care, Samantha :)
