About Me

My name is Claire, I live with my husband, daughter and our 18 month old puppy who adores children.

I became as childminder as I believe that children should be cared for in a clean and friendly environment where they can learn through play. I provide a flexible and personal service that meets every child's personal and individual needs.

I am currently studying an HNC in Childhood Practice with the hope of then studying to gaining a BA in Childhood Practice through the open university.

I have business insurance for my car and a full clean driving licence.

My Experience

I have been childminding for nearly 10 years and I love my job just as much today as I did when I registered. While being registered I have card for a range of children from as young as six months to 11 years. I have brothers and sisters of older siblings.

I have known claire and her family now for almost Five years. She has helped me many a times with childcare for my daughter who is now Nine years old. My daughter suffered from separation issues a lot of the time and claire was so understanding, patient and helpful and managed to make the whole experience due to this effortless. She really bonded with my daughter and myself and put us both at ease. Although my daughter would ask about when it was home time, this was only because she liked to know when I would be back. However when it came to pick up and home time my daughter almost never wanted to leave claire and her family. She bonded really well with them and has made friendships out of this. I have to say I also have found really good friends in claire and her family due to using her services. This whole experience left us grateful and happy, all the effort, hard work and care claire puts into doing her job, putting your children’s needs and care first like it should be made it easier on me leaving her for go to work. I’m very happy with the service provided by claire and would highly recommend her to everyone. She is an angel and was our shining star!

My son enjoyed his time going to Claires even on the early morning starts, claire had my youngest for 4 years while I attended college.
Even so upon first going he was very hard work as he is my youngest, but Claire managed to help him settle so well that he wanted to go on the days he wasn't there. He made some great friendships while being there.
Claire is an excellent childminder, so caring and loving anyone would be lucky to have her look after their children.
