About Me

Hi
My name is Barbara , I have been an experienced Ofsted Registered childminder for around 25 years,
I live close to Morden Park, Just off the London road /Epsom road a stones throw from the 93 and 80 bus stop and very convenient for Morden station.
My home and family are warm and welcoming, Children have the run of the whole downstairs, plus their own playroom which leads out to a large enclosed safe garden, I have a vast array of toys and equipment to both amuse and educate your child.
We visit play groups, parks, farms Libraries and playbarns. During the school holidays we go further afield to the beach, museums, zoo and loads more
come and join us
I have references which can be followed up
My last Ofsted inspection was January 2020, which is available to view online
I have a very beautiful Labrador Dog

My Experience

Childminding has been part of my life for 25 years in that time I have been a specialist minder for Merton Council, a support childminder , worked in a nursery as part of my NVQ3 in Childcare and development
I also help run a childminding playgroup.
I work along side a group of Childminder’s, whom met up everyday, so your child will get to interact with lots of other children whilst still getting my undivided attention
I really enjoy my job, Every day is fun and an adventure, where we can explore and learn through play.

Did you know you can divide your 30 hour funding between a nursery and a childminder

My daughter started her adventure with Barbara when she was one years' old and we all never looked back.

Barbara is always challenging the kids with learning something new and she have learned so much about the world and how many countries have special celebrations by having a special party, dressing up, baking or making something amazing its always different. Barbara have a great imagination and allow the kids to be kids. She goes above and beyond capturing special moments of the day to share it with us, the parents.

My daughter loves attending Barbara's and we couldn't of chosen a better and more supportive childminder to take care of our daughter.

Thank you Barbara you are just the best.

Barbara looked after both my boys for about 7 years when I returned to work as deputy head at local school. She is without doubt an exceptional child minder in so many ways. It's always hard to go back to work after maternity leave and find the right person to care for your children. Barbara was undoubtedly the right person. From day 1 I felt confident that the boys were happy, exceptionally well cared for and stimulated in all areas of development. Barbara provides a warm and inviting learning environment. Every day provides a different focus or outing. She also, in her wonderfully kind and supportive way, teaches good manners and encouraged appropriate behaviour. My boys still talk about Barbara with huge fondness. She looked after the boys in the same way as she would her own. We could not have wished for more from a child minder.

My daughter started going to Barbara’s 9 years ago and my son 4 years ago and they’re still going.

Barbara goes above and beyond with all of the children and is committed to providing a high standard of care. She has so much patience and a good sense of humour.

All the children have fun and can just be kids. They are constantly out exploring, making things, dressing up or playing games.

They all sit together at dinner time which I think is super cute, all of the children of diverse ages have a great relationship.

My children absolutely love attending Barbara’s and we couldn’t of chosen a better person to take care of our children.
