About Me

My name is Hayley and I live at home with my partner James, who is also my registered assistant and our two wonderful children, a son aged 14 and daughter aged 8. They have created the best experiences for me.

We live in a three bedroom semi-detached house which has a large back garden, with a wide variety of resources. My home offers a welcoming, warm and friendly environment giving a home from home feel. Families are encouraged to become part of our family.

We have an open plan front room/dining room which is dedicated to childminding and set out to enable the children to move freely and explore all the activities and resources available. We also have a dedicated conservatory that is solely for childminding children. We believe children learn best through first hand experiences and are encouraged with a stimulating environment and a variety of opportunities provided, ensuring all ages, abilities and stages of development are met.

Regular planned visits will be arranged and local attractions attended. Below is a brief outline of some of the activities on offer:

Toddler groups, Sensory playground, Allotments, Sure start events, Green banks – sensory room, Soft play areas, Local library groups, Park, Nature walks, Trips to the zoo, Visit to castles, Betteshanger Country Park, Beach trips, Music time, story time, Painting, Cutting and sticking, Dressing up, Play doh, Crafts work etc.... and above all while we are playing and having lots of fun we are learning and developing new skills at the same time.

We currently collect/drop off at Butterflies nursery, St Saviours, St Crispins Primary school and Bromstone Primary school. We accept up to 30 hours free childcare for children 2,3 and 4 years.

Please feel free to visit our website or contact for more information or to arrange a visit.

My Experience

I have over 18 years childcare experience working in an educational setting, including children with special needs, challenging behaviours and additional needs.

I am creative and resourceful, I have a wealth of specialist skills that enable me to challenge and extend children's learning and development and well being.

Since leaving school I have attended College and University gaining a degree in Early Childhood Studies with Sport Science and a diploma in Teaching in the Life Long Sector. I had worked at a Special needs school for over 14 years before becoming a Childminder.

I have always seen the importance of training and have attended a wide variety of different training courses which have kept me up to date with my knowledge and understanding and allowed me to develop my skills further. I have worked alongside other professionals to develop my knowledge and understanding in different areas within the educational setting.

Hayley has cared for my 17 month old son for the last few months and he always comes home happy and content (someday's he doesn't want to leave because he is having so much fun!) he also sleeps well when he is there.
They always have lots of fun with activities and groups during the day.
Hayley also uses some sign language, which is also useful for him to communicate when he is at home.
I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Our son has been with Hayley one day a week for a considerable amount of time and there is no doubt that this has really helped his development and he has enjoyed every minute of it.

Hayley ensures that the children always have fun activities to do during the day even if they cant get out of the house! It's clear to see that these activities are planned not only for the children's enjoyment but also to help their development.

There is nothing negative to say, Hayley is brilliant. I would highly recommend her.

Hayley looks after my daughter who has several medical issues and additional needs (daily seizures, cerebral palsy, profoundly deaf and visually impaired)
She is one of the most caring people I have ever met and treats my daughter like one of her own family. Nothing is too much trouble for her and although my daughter requires intensive interaction, stimulation and monitoring throughout the day, Hayley manages to do this effortlessly alongside running lots of interesting activities and outings for the other children in her care.
If you're looking for an organised, kind and proactive childminder then Hayley is one special lady!

We Have been with Hayley and her partner James since January, very professional, my 3 children love going there. They provide lots of varied activities, homework help and more. I work shifts and they have been able to be flexible which is invaluable.
