About Me

I work along side my husband Paul. We have been both ofsted registered as good on our last Ofsted inspection this year. We have been childminders for 29 years and have also done respite care. We have looked after children professionally as young as 4 weeks old up until 11 years old. Our own 3 children have all left home and started families themselves. Our house has a play room purely dedicated for the children. We have a large secure back garden again full of toys and play equipment, such as climbing frame, musical instruments and sand table. In the summer we often have the water play out and do activities like brushing the dinosaurs teeth and washing the dolls. This also has a Wendy house with diner, flower stall and play kitchen We go on weekly trips on holidays to zoos, the seaside, cinema, experience restaurants, shopping and trampoline parks. I do learning journals for all children that attend. We go regular to soft play, farms, parks, woods, visit the library and attend a toddlers group twice a week. We do art and craft activities, messy play and help older school age children with homework and reading. We teach the children basic skills, help with potty training, simple numbers, letter sounds, shapes and colours. I meet up with my daughter almost daily who is a childminder In her own right and has her own setting so the children can all meet up and do activities as a larger group.
