About Me

I am a single mum of two young adults now aged 22 and 18. My eldest is studying and teaching dance in London, and 18 old at Salesian’s College, shortly due to sit A levels and head off to university .
I have been an Ofsted registered child minder since 2003 . Prior to child minding I was a sole charge nanny to several families over 18 years, so have always worked in child care.
I provide a high quality child care in a loving ,caring family environment with a wide range of fun stimulating resources for little ones. I make regular visits to local parks, Wisely and other places of interest. Children take part in many varied activities based at home too, messy play, creative activities, cooking, story time and music rhyme time.
I have a large secluded garden with outdoor play equipment.
I am based in Hersham within easy walking distance of Hersham railway station, very close to Coronation Park .I provide home cooked meals and my home is a non smoking setting.
I believe in working in full co operation with parents, welcoming ideas. I run my setting professionally attending training courses out of work time and I respect confidentiality of children/parents.
I am committed to providing a very reliable service that parents can depend on and in which they can place their confidence.
As a mother, I have enjoyed watching my own two develop, grow and excel in certain areas of learning and sport. I have loved to be involved in their world, seeing them pass milestones. I would like to share the joys that child minding brings to me with you and your child in this way.

When I am not child minding I voluntary officiate for Walton Athletic Club. I spend much of my time watching my son compete for Surrey at Inter County and National level in athletics and cross country and my daughter in dance. I am a fit very healthy 55year old, I enjoy a circuit training and boxing class in my spare time, gardening and painting. I am also a very keen on cycling having purchased a new sporty bike a couple of summers ago too.

My daughter has been with Linda for 8 months now and started when she was 1 year old.

Linda has been nothing but fantastic, my daughter absolutely loves attending everyday and jumps with excitement when we get to Linda’s door. Linda is the perfect mix of caring, fun and firm with the children, she is always taking them on outings or doing something educational with them. This week taking them to wisely for an Easter egg hunt, rhyme time at the library and bushy park to name just a few.

Linda is just wonderful and I’m so happy we found her, I would highly recommend.

Thank you, for the review your little one brings much joy and amusement to my setting! X

We are absolutely delighted with the care that our son gets from Linda.
He started going to Lindas for three days a week when he was approx. 14 months old and is still with her now (almost 2). He thrives in her cafe. We especially love the very thorough WhatsApp diary update each day and look forward to seeing the days activities - if not raining all day, Linda always takes the children out, to the local parks, woods, Wisley, rhyme time at the library etc. which I think is very important. But when raining, her house and setting has everything you could wish for, so many stimulating toys and activities and no tv or iPad in sight. We couldn’t be more delighted with Linda’s care and would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.

Thank you for the review such a placid easy going little boy, Its a real pleasure to care for him, long may it last x.

Linda has looked after both our boys from the age of 1 until 3. From the moment that we stepped into her setting we knew that it was the right place for them to be. Linda has created a safe space where children can learn and develop to the best of their ability.
My boys love the outdoors and they get the opportunity to be outside on a daily basis whether that is in her wonderful garden, at local play areas, Wisley, Bushy Park or beyond. Nothing is too much for Linda and she has the child's best interests at heart, working alongside parents to ensure the best for all. She is an extension of our family and my eldest delights at being able to visit her to discuss what he has done at school.
We are very sad to be moving on but know that what ever child takes our space is very lucky.

Aww thank you, for the review.
It has been a great 5 years in total. I have enjoyed our many fun adventures together.

I will miss you all too.

Linda has cared for both my girls from the ages of 8 months to 3/4 years. They have both thrived in her care and loved every moment (in fact my eldest asked tonight if I could book her in to go to Linda’s one weekend). Linda’s house is like a home from home, she takes great care to reflect the children's interests in their play whilst encouraging learning. She has a fantastic garden where they spend lots of time in summer doing various activities and water play which my children adored together with their little outings to the library, the park, the woods to name but a few. Linda always goes the extra mile and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Thank you for your kind words,
its been a pleasure caring for your children. I have loved taking them on their little adventures. It will be sad to see you go but will sure to to stay in contact.

Linda is an amazing childminder. My daughter has been with almost 3 years and she has always been providing her with a familiar environment, focusing on several different activities and being extremely aware of the needs of each child. She has a great setting, with lots of space indoor and outdoor and through the different activities she makes sure the children are learning and progressing while having fun. She often brings them to parks and playgrounds, for walks etc. encouraging also physical activity. I consider myself extremely fortunate that she had a space when I was looking for childcare and cannot recommend her highly enough.
