About Me

Hi, My name is Gill and I have been a registered childminder for over 20 yrs now, I live with my husband who works for the London Ambulance Service and our 3 daughters aged 28 to 19 years.

We provide a warm friendly 'home from home' environment so that the children feel comfortable and thrive in the family /homely setting with both dogs and cats which gives the children a wonderful opportunity to be confident and respect animals.

I have significant and varied experience through the courses I have attended since becoming a child minder and the qualifications from these.

Paediatric trained in first aid.

In 2018 was graded Good after being graded as outstanding in 2008 and again in September 2011. Very pleased to have been graded 'Outstanding' twice.

I work with an assistant when required.

Short-term care before moving out of the area for our 2.5 year old. Immaculate attention to detail. Every day was very entertaining. Adaptation managed perfectly. Within first five days in, the child stated asking to take her back to Gill's, imminently after being picked up in the evening.

Thank you Dimitri It was a pleasure

I can honestly say the thought of leaving my child with somebody else filled me with dread but I could not be happier with the care Gill has provided. It really is a home from home, but dare I say it, more exciting!

Gill really provides a caring environment where children can thrive and become independent whilst feeling safe and secure and my son has certainly done this. There is a lovely mix of different aged children after school and they go out each morning to different groups, which has really helped with his social skills. He is always coming home with lovely art work, cooking and stories of the adventures he has had.

I can honestly say that he loves going to Gill's.

Gill is friendly, flexible and great at what she does. I am just about to return to work after my second child and am so glad not to have all the stress of childcare choices this time around - both my boys will now be going Gill's house and I couldn't feel happier about my choice.

Thank you Gill :)
