I'm Michelle, 47 years young and living with Michael, my partner of 14+ years. Even as a child, I mothered everyone, I spent my teenage years babysitting for the local community and in later years became the mother figure to my siblings. After my son arrived, I began working in settings with children and realised very soon that not only did I love this work, I was actually pretty good at it, I was given a gift that enabled me to relate to children and adults alike but also to bring out the best in them. I believe children learn best when they are having fun and feel good about themselves, I believe that children should be allowed to develop in their own unique ways and that guidance and choices are the way to best prepare them for the world around them. Most of my days have been spent with two 3 1/2 year olds who have been with me for over a year and our days are full of fun. Whether attending groups, making cakes or painting, we're always busy and, learning all the time. They have now started school and know their colours,shapes, numbers and are starting to identify and write their numbers and letters and most importantly, they are loving their achievements.. As a working Mum I understand only too well the pressures of trying to do your best and I want nothing more than to support families in achieving this. So if you would like a childminder who puts you and your family first, who will work with you to support and teach your children then please feel free to contact me.
I have worked with children from birth to adulthood.I have worked in many settings; providing parenting support, learning and behavioural support, private tutoring in Maths, English and Music, schools and children's homes. The roles have been varied and have provided me with a wealth of valuable experience which has enabled me to achieve great results with the children I have worked with.

Michelle had my four year old for 5 days during the summer holidays. She sent photos of him having a ball every day. I'd had a couple of challenges with him around meal times and picking his nose! He came home with near perfect table manners and had stopped picking his nose! Michelle has a unique way with children. They love her and respect her at the same time as she blends great fun with excellent teaching, firm boundaries and perfect age appropriate communication. Jacob is asking when he can go back and that in itself speak its own testomy. Thank you Michelle for taking such wonderful care of my boy and loving him as if he were your own. He loves you and we love you for creating that in him. One thing you can be sure of with children, they will soon let you know if they don't want to be somewhere or with someone and he can't wait to come back!
