About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My name is Rachel and I am an ofsted registered childminder.I currently live in Allesley Park with my husband and family.My property is situated very close to the park,shops,schools, library and many other local amenities.
During the day we use the whole of the ground floor but I do have a purposed built playroom or the children to play in.The children have access to a whole range of toys such as books,jigsaws,dressing-up clothes,role play toys,small world toys,arts and craft activities,construction blocks,train sets,cars,dolls and
pushchairs to name but a few!!!!!
The playroom leads onto my garden which the children use on a free flow basis.We have replaced the grass area with astro turf to enable the children to use the garden all year round! The children have access to a wide range of outdoor equipment which includes a wooden playhouse,slides,seesaws,ride on toys and bikes,sand and water play,painting and drawing facilities and other outdoor games. We also grow plants and vegetables from time to time.
The children I care for see my setting as a real home from home where they are loved,nurtured,cared for and educated.I work closely with parents,carers and other agencies on a daily basis.Each child has a diary to record the days events, activities.sleep patterns and menus. They also have a learning journal where I record the child's artwork,observations and photographs.This is a lovely memento of the time that we have shared together and tells a story of how the child has developed during their time at my setting.

My Experience

I have been a childminder since 1997, in that time I have provided a home from home for all of the children I have cared for. I care for children from varying age groups and have gained a mass of experience and having four daughters of my own has provided me with a solid platform to develop my approach to child care.

Below are the latest reviews for Rachel. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our little girl went to Rachel's from round 18 months and she only stopped because we move out of Coventry.
During her time with Rachel she learned so much and her development was really well supported. She was so happy and made lots of friends. The children do so many activities and it includes seasonal and significant events work. The garden is great and the children are outside almost everyday, weather permitting! They also visit the local park regularly too.
I would definitely recommend Rachel from little ones to school children as there are lots of activities for all ages.
