About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder and have been graded as Outstanding for my last 2 inspections in 2011 and 2014.
l like to offer a small, caring, family orientated home from home childcare service which focuses on the individual child. I offer a wide range of activities but our favourites are arts, crafts and cooking!
I live with my two children, aged 17 and 14, our dog and two chickens in a three bedroom house in Newport. We have a good sized garden, which includes a summer house and plenty of outdoor toys to play with, and a vegetable plot for the children to help with, as well as having an allotment a few minutes walk away. The whole of the downstairs area is used for minded children with an extensive range of age appropriate toys and activities and there is a downstairs toilet. The 2 main bedrooms are available for younger children to sleep in travel cots.
I am a member with PACEY.
We also enjoy plenty of trips out, visiting local toddler groups, Audley End, Hatfied forest and soft play centres.
