About Me

My name is Rebecca, I am 40 years old with a BA (hons) Degree in Drama and Education from the Central School of Speech and Drama. Together with my partner and two children, I live just off the A483 with easy access to Wrexham, Chester and local areas such as Gresford, Rossett and Marford.


Right from the initial meeting to their first day in our home and beyond, I will ensure that I work closely with you to ensure your child's individual needs are at the forefront of their care.

Your child will receive a daily diary that shows you their progress and learning and development journey.

I offer a safe and positive environment where play, fun and learning are encouraged through a multitude of activities.

I have a play room that includes a variety of learning resources for babies and pre-school age children and focused area of the outside space that is also fun, stimulating and safe.

We have a safe and secure garden to the rear with plenty of space to play and explore. Having recently moved into the property, we are starting a growing patch which will be a great resource for learning and development.

I have ensured that for older, school age children, I have a selection of resources and activities that would be suitable for before and after school that would support their learning, and aid homework tasks, if applicable. I will also ensure that they have a quiet space to recharge after a busy day through watching television, listening to music or reading for example.

We will also make good use is made of our locality by visiting places of interest such as Erddig and going on regular trips to the library and toddler groups, for example.



My aims are as follows:

• To ensure that the minimum standards as set out by CSSIW are exceeded
• To fully comply with and keep up to date on all relevant Legislation
• To base play provision around the Foundation Phase for 3-7 year olds
• To ensure progress and development in early years and throughout the age groups
• To ensure quality of care and provision
• To work in partnership with parents and carers
• To put the child at the center of provision

My Experience

I have experience of working with children in drama related settings and a passion for creative development and learning. I also have hands on parenting experience with two boys of my own including recent new born experience.

I hope to bring lots of creativity and fun to child minding and hope that your child will enjoy their time in my setting and be happy to return each day.
