About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder and previously the deputy manager of a local Pre-School plus I have three children of my own, 24, 16 and 11. My home and garden provide a safe, homely and stimulating environment for all ages of children. I am passionate about Early Years learning and development and this is demonstrated in the qualifications I hold and my commitment to continually developing the children in my care.
I offer childcare in my home Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 5.30pm with home cooked meals and snacks provided. I also offer wraparound care for Kingswood Primary School and Little Acorns Preschool in Lower Kingswood.
I offer term time only and all year contracts with flexibility on days and hours. I work together with assistants on some days. Together we can offer further flexibility on days and hours whilst maintaining safe ratios and the best possible care for your child. We enjoy going on trips to parks, soft play, toddler groups etc as well as outside learning in our nearby allotment and on site in our secure garden and fields and woodland we are adjacent to. Close to junction 8 on the M25 and Fidelity and Pfizer.

We love Funky monkeys. Natalie uses tapestry learning journal so I can see what they've been up to during the day and it's always something different, topical and with obvious learning benefits.
