About Me

I am an enthusiastic ‘hands on’ childminder- and love it when my house is full of the sound of little ones laughter. My approach is to provide the children with the learning opportunities and nurturing environment in which they can develop self awareness, interests and aptitude’s at their own pace.
I mainly provide child-led learning opportunities-though we do structured activities too- especially reading/ singing/ music time. We have a lovely large setting with lots of toys/ crafts and roll play activities that children can select for themselves. We have a secure garden and playhouse for the children and we live next to a large playing field with a children’s playground. We also do lots of ‘day’s out’ including local playgroups, soft play, farms and museums. I have a healthy eating policy and the food I provide is made from natural ingredients. I am also qualified in baby signing and baby massage. ultimately my aim is for the children to have fun!
