About Me

***Open for key workers ***

My name is Shelby, and i live in Bishops Stortford with my husband and my 2 children. I have an assistant who works with me in my home.

When looking after children, i want them to feel that home from home feeling. I ensure they are in a safe and calm environment. I love to keep busy with the children, and will have activities set up for their age range and ensure they are challenging and enjoyable.

we will enjoy morning trips to the parks, forest,library and playgroups.

I love outdoor play and have transformed my garden for children to be able to explore to their full advantage. I have a mud kitchen, planting area, bug hotel and much more. I believe the outdoors to be very important to a childs development, i love trips to the forest with the children for them to explore and use all their senses.

I have worked with children now for 10 years, I have a lot of experience on learning through play, phonics, and ensuring we are always learning whilst playing and exploring in my home but most importantly, I want to make sure the children are happy, and the rest will come naturally.

I always ask parents to come and see my home for themselves before starting with me, so that parents can feel comfortable knowing where their little ones will be, we can then discuss further what you would like and go into more detail.

Any questions please message me.

Shelby is brilliant, kind, serious, reliable and full of ideas of things to do with the children, indoors and outdoors. Our little boy absolutely loves being looked after by Shelby ! (he doesn't want to come home sometimes 😳)
