My name is Remona Walters, I'm a single mother of two boys ages 18 & 12. I've decided to return to the childcare profession after a period of personal circumstances that directed my path into Project Management. However, caring for children is where my passion is and where I get a great sense of job satisfaction, hence I am returning back to the profession and for good this time!!

I'm a hands-on enthusiastic mother, who's very energetic and enjoys children play; whether it's jumping on the trampoline, kicking a ball about, getting my kitchen messy or just sitting still letting the children make a clown of me, in getting my make up and hair done. My home is never free from the neighbours' children. To add, from time to time I do get a small group of disgruntled teenage boys; either playing video games or attending one of my revision sessions.

In the past, I've done a bit of private fostering, which I found challenging at times but very rewarding, knowing I could meet the needs of a vulnerable child. I'm currently a good neighbour volunteer and dedicate 2 evenings per wk for volunteering work, mainly with the elderly and this may impact childcare hours offered as I intend to carry on with this.

With the backing of a supportive team of fun, energetic & caring young ladies, it is my aim to provide a service that correlates with EYFS statutory guidelines & the children's act; accepting that every child is unique in catering for individual personalised needs, encouraging positive relationships with an open constructive appraisal system that rewards & encourages growth and development mentally, physically, emotionally & creatively. Stimulating every child’s potential, in an environment that is enabling and fit for purpose, whilst encouraging learning through play.I will endeavour at all times to provide a safe, happy and family friendly environment.

My Experience

Whilst doing my degree I carried out various Nanny/ home carer roles; whereby I would look after children in their own homes. I’ve also a few years of Private fostering

My little boy has been with Remona for 2 years now & I couldn’t fault her and the team! The girls are lovely and full of energy. If he has come out of school and had a bad day you can guarantee that they will try their upmost to turn that around 👍🏼❤️

My son has been attending Safety Heaven since he was almost 10month old. During this time he has grown and developed so well. Romona has been really flexable when l've been to make changes at short notice. His social skills have been amazing. My son is always happy to go to Romona and see his friends which is always a good sign for any mum.

Provides snacks and a small dinner for children after school which i can't complain about. Easy to talk to and open to new ideas and changes.

No doubt she’s always talking about how much she loves my dinner!! LOL..My little firey lady with the uttermost respect for authority & love for her peers. We enjoy her company always showing off her gymnastics skills.

Ramona is so so full of energy and it's just what my children need. As a mum of 3 I felt Ramona has the right enthusiasm energy and voice that make the children so ready to attack the day with vroom and umph. You can tell she loves what she does and her assistants also bring the calm and energy to help all children play together and fit in .her setting encourage friendship between children and you see it with the way they all interact with each other. Although my children have outgrown the setting and they have left - every now and then they always ask to pop in and see her or say hi to her..and it's always a pleasure as she greets us with a smile. Thank you Ramona

Aww thank you Linda for your honesty, it’s always appreciated & welcome with great attention to details in assisting with overal improvements. I really enjoy & look forward to your visits..see you soon

Brilliant service . They will go out of their way to accomodate you and your circumstances . I am a single parent working crazy shifts and Safety Haven are there for me when I needed them . Nothing is ever too hard . Their pricing is fare and you get so much more than what they charge. Children are looked after and fed well - delicious and nutritious meals - staff very caring and compassionate.
