My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

I am a registered Childminder located in Gunthorpe Peterborough operating under the name Childminder Gunthorpe.

I am looking to provide care for children Monday – Friday, I am able to provide early morning and late collection to suit parents who are working shifts.

I may look at the possibility of extended overnight care should the situation be suitable for my family situation at the time.

I myself have a 4 year old son, I currently care for a variety of children aged between 3 months and 9 years old. I have 20 different children registered with me excellent reviews available from parents. And Ofsted rated Good by Ofsted in May 2019.

Our home is fully equipped for little people with lots of fun activities and opportunities for play.

We have recently extended our home to give me a really good sized playroom to work from with direct access to our secure garden which can be used all year round rain or shine due to artificial grass. Due to the new extension I have another separate room which can be used for small children napping in the day or older children after school.

As well as my home I go out in to the community and to local groups, this allows children to adapt to new surroundings and meet other children of a similar age.

I visit Sacrewell Farm, Ferry meadows and many other places on a weekly basis

I carry out observations and track each child’s learning using a web based app called Baby Days. This will allow you to see what areas of learning your child is reaching and what areas we need to work towards. The app allows me to share pictures and videos in real time, this is great for you as a parent whilst at work to see what your little one is doing. All this information can also be shared with other childcare settings should they also attend a nursery or move on to a pre school later on.

School aged children

I am currently providing School pick up/drop offs for Norwood Primary in Gunthorpe, and offer childcare for the holidays. We are located just off Elter Walk so very close to the school which is just a short walk on a very safe public footpath with no vehicles.

I have previously worked for Thomas Cook as a Children’s Rep. I have lots of experience with planning and creating fun and exciting activities for school aged children to fill long summer days in the holidays.

We are a short walk away from a number of local outdoor open spaces to allow both young and old children to get outside and play.

Funding

I am able to provide Tax -Free Childcare.

I will also consider funding for ¾ year old’s.

Spaces

Norwood School before school/pick up spaces available currently and names. Being taken for September 2020.

All under 5 years spaces are currently filled due to high demand.

Anybody looking for future spaces please get in contact ASAP as I already have enquiries for September 2020. It’s never too early to arrange childcare and be happy that when you are returning to work you and your little one are happy in the new environment.

Thank you for viewing my profile, please get in contact if you would like to know more about me and what I can offer you and your child.

My daughter has been with Michelle for just shy of a year now and I honestly can’t speak highly enough about her. Boasting a beautiful setting with a playroom and great sized garden with artificial grass there is lots to keep the little ones busy!

What stands Michelle apart is her real ability to let children be children! She really champions play and adventure which I honestly feel in the generation of tablets and YouTube is a real rare find. She gets the children out and about from trips to the library, farms or local parks but also encourages them to get creative with crafts and drawing.

My daughter has meal times on a Thursday & Friday and on occasion in school holidays, she is a typical 5 year old and can be fussy sometimes. Michelle is great at working with me and my daughter so make sure she eats well and meals are varied.

Finally a big thing for me as a parent that is so worried about sun damage and lathers my daughter up on a hot day is the fact that Michelle is also very attentive with this and ensuring over our recent bouts of high temperatures that she was well protected and having plenty of shade time, which just takes a weight of worry off my shoulders.

Cannot recommend her enough!
