About Me

My goal at Rainbow Childminding Waltham Abbey is to provide a "Good" Ofsted registered "home from home" childcare setting for very young children in a safe, happy, fun and caring environment. I provide a homely setting with ample toys, resources and activities. I have a garden with nature areas, vegetable growing areas, a covered play area, outdoor toys and a play house.

I understand the importance of learning through play and playing outdoors. I prepare children for their next stage of their lives through the development of motor abilities, thinking skills and healthy interactions with their peers. From language and literacy development to social skills and creative expression, the children at Rainbow Childminding are constantly being exposed to new activities and environments in which they thrive. I understand that each child has unique needs and interests. I provide the environment and tools your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities. Once they leave Rainbow Childminding, they're fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

My son has had the most amazing experience and rainbows. During his time here he was able to participate in amazing activities in a clean child friendly environment. He is very excited to attend and grabs his shoes in the morning to go and comes home really content and happy. She always communicated with me with how my son was and what he was up to during the day, from snacks he ate and activities he had done also which was nice to read during my time at work.Overall I highly recommend this childminder 😃she is totally overall amazing. 🌈🌈

Marnie looked after my little boy this summer on a few occasions when I needed childcare and she provided an excellent environment for the children to learn and play, always thinking of new things and activities to do with the children and my son settled straight away. She is so warm and caring I always felt completely reassured my son was in safe hands and got regular updates on what he had been doing. I would highly recommend Marnie if you are looking for a childminder and lucky enough to find her with a free space! I certainly hope to use her again in the next school holidays!

Finding childcare for our little Harper was a bit daunting, but from the offset Marnie struck us as professional, caring and pleasant and also proved to be reliable and trustworthy. Over the past 15 months Harper has settled in quite nicely, always excited about her time at Rainbow Childminding calling out the names of the other kids she spend her days with as she gets ready to go over to Marnie's care . Marnie has provided Harper with a home away from home and an extension of friends who she adores dearly and for that we are very grateful. Marnie has been professional throughout with every aspect of her services I would Highly recommend Rainbow Childminding.

My son has been with Marnie / rainbow since 1yrs old and he has had an amazing journey , my older child was at nursery and didn’t have half the experiences that rainbow child minding has offered. from outdoor walks , nature trails to zoo trips and almost weekly visits to the farm , , a brilliant home environment and very organised and highly educated provider . I can hand on my heart say Oscar has been entertained, educated and cared for from day dot . Amazing feedback and documentation of our child’s progress, brilliant planning and execution of children’s development. But a good chat with Marnie and this cane across from our 1st meeting .

During our 3 years with rainbow childminding we have sadly had several major health incidents in our family and each time Marnie has gone above and beyond to help with both our children , something she didn’t have to do but did with aplomb . We have found Marnie to be wonderfuly flexible and approachable. A truly wonderful educator and minder . Thank you for everything you’ve done and do .

Marnie has by far gone beyond my expectations. I am always excited to see what my son has been up to and it is always a range of imaginative and exciting activities and outings. Not only is Marnie professional but she is also very warm and welcoming. Marnie always updates me which is a massive reassurance to me while I'm at work. I am so lucky to have found Rainbow childminding and I would recommend Marnie to anyone who is looking for a warm loving place where their child can develop and grow. Thank you so much Marnie for everything that you do.
