About Me

My name is Fiona and I live with my Family in a quiet street with no parking restrictions, and it's an eight minute walk to the train station. I have a large patio area and a large garden which includes a trampoline, slide, triple swing, climbing frame and lots of other outdoor toys. I do lots of making, baking, painting, music, story time, going to playgroups & the park, arts & crafts and much more with the children. I enjoy my job very much, and for me knowing that the children are happy makes me happy.

I also cook fresh meals on a daily basis for the children.

I have tropical fish which the children seem to love watching them swimming around in the tank.

My Experience

Leaving my two year old with a minder was a worry but my anxieties were dealt with in a very understanding manner by Fiona and hubby. They were also very patient with baby R, kept in regular contact with me throughout the day with pics and updates of her behaviour/eating/sleeping habits. Should I need a minder in the future I will definately come back and I recommend her to anyone in search of a minders in Potters Bar especially for anyone with children at Cranborne.

Fiona is amazing, I knew from the first moment we spoke that I wanted her to care for my little boy.
She is just excellent in every way.
My Little Boy adores her and every morning when we pull up he cant wait to get out of the car and runs in - so that speaks volumes!
Fiona does so much with then children from making things with to them to taking them out. He often comes home with things he has made that day.
My little boy is so happy with her,she cares for my son in the way I would and I trust her a million percent!
Fiona keeps you constantly updated on the days events, eating, sleeping etc.
Having tried other child care with my first child,I really wish I had found Fiona years ago!
Fiona and all her family are so welcoming and friendly, its like home from home for my little boy and I really cant recommend her enough.
If you are looking for someone in this area then look no further as when you first meet Fiona I am sure you will feel the same as I did!

I have used Fiona for both my boys 9&4 over the last year. She made them feel very welcome and settled almost immediately. She had lots of activities for then to get involved in over the summer and they particularly enjoyed going to Willow farm. Dropping and picking up from the local primary was a real help and she is very familiar with the teachers in Cranbourne which meant communication even when we were unable to pickup from school was current.
My younger one absolutely loved playing in the garden

Fiona has taken care of our girls for over 11 years in total. Through all the ups and downs of family life, my children have been well loved and looked after by Nona.

Fiona cares for children, and this is evident by the level of service she provides.

Fiona has given me peace of mind, which money can not buy.

I introduced my little one to Fiona when he was only 9 months old. I had to return to work weeks later and felt very anxious leaving my precious with a 'stranger'. Fiona made my return to work comfortable, she kept me updated with texts and pictures every day.
She always makes time to talk about my son and knows him so well. He loves going to her home, he is greeting her with big smiles every morning and he has been with her for over a year now.
Fiona is compassionate about children, she is great at teaching and very aware of health issues and the typical baby / toddler problems i.e. teething and sleeping.
Fiona shows so much emotional warmth towards the children in her care, my son is getting his cuddles when I'm at work. Working with children myself I know my son is safeguarded, well looked after and loved when he is with her.
I highly recommend Fiona and so does my son.
