About Me

I'm a Mum of 2 and a fully Ofsted registered Childminder, ready to take on children. I am happy to look at short term or long term options as necessary during the holidays or to start fresh in September. I understand the need for flexibility in the current COVID situation.

I live in Ross town, walking distance to a few schools in the local area. I am Ofsted registered, DBS checked and paediatric first aid certified. I own a car that is fully insured for childminding purposes so I am also able to collect from local schools/nurseries that are slightly further afield.

I have a lot of experience as a Nanny so the shift to childminding is a very simple one, plus having 2 children of my own gives me even more sensitivity to both children and their parents!
My DD (born Nov 17) will be attending nursery some days that I may adjust depending on who I take on and my DS (born Oct 19) will be a permanent fixture.

I also work as a freelance family portrait photographer on a part time basis when I'm not offering childminding services.

My available days are Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday. I'll be looking to take on one child (under 5) for full days, as my son is nearly 12 months old, I would be willing to consider a baby under 12 months of age. Also happy to look into wrap around care for school age children and I'm flexible on the terms of this for the right family.

I have experience with a variety of age groups, I love the outdoors, creative activities and always aim for lots of stimulation for the children in my care. I have an abundance of toys to suit all tastes, plus crafting supplies and lots of knowledge of suitable playgroups/parks and activities in the area. I believe in lots of outdoor play and fun so if we're not out and about the children can have free reign in the safely secured garden, with water/sand table, toy ride in car, play house and footballs.

I also own a dog (4yo black lab) who is very friendly but families would need to be happy for a dog to be around their children. She's very well behaved and will be shut away depending on the ages of the children and what activities are under way. My husband works as a gardener in the local area and also has a DBS check. He will only be around for a short portion of the day in the morning/evening.

My Experience

Previous 2 nanny positions involved care of 2 children under 5 and my own daughter. In both positions it worked extremely well and my daughter and the children in my care developed lovely relationships.

Previously worked with family in Henley-on-thames looking after 3 children under 6. Previous positions prior to this in Henley, Harpsden, Bournemouth & London.
