About Me

My name is Amy and I live with my Husband, Matt, and three young children, Evelyn, Jack and Harriet. I live in the beautiful village of Fernhurst, but am originally from Staines. We relocated in 2016 as we wanted to bring our children up with the great outdoors on our doorstep.
For the last 2 years I have been at home, raising our children and this is what influenced the decision to become a Childminder. It enables me to combine my love of teaching & working with children, whilst being able to spend time with my own children.

My Experience

I am a Qualified Primary School Teacher, and have taught Early Years up to Year 6. My main teaching experience was in Hounslow, teaching in Year 2. I was Numeracy Coordinator and Year Group Leader, coordinating 90 children and 5 members of staff.
Before I was a teacher, I worked as a Teaching Assistant in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

Amy cared for my two children 3yrs and 5yrs. She is caring, kind and incredibly conscientious. I was very happy with how she looked after my children and would recommend her without hesitation.

My 4 year old daughter went to Amy early for before school care and Amy took her to school in the mornings. She loved going and she was always excited on “Amy days”! I knew that she would be well cared for and delivered safely. Any has such a great way with Children, always calm, warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a caring environment for their child.

Amy has been looking after my girls for nearly a year and I can't fault her. She is caring & fun and I know that they are in safe hands when they are with her. Her home is safe and welcoming and she has plenty of activities for the children to do. Her garden is also lovely with a great selection of outdoor toys.

My girls are always happy when they are with Amy and come home telling me all about their adventures with her.
I can highly recommend her and am happy to speak to anyone who is looking at placing their children in her care to answer any questions.
