About Me

Hi, I'm Lauren. I have worked in childcare for over 10 years and love working with children of all ages. I also have two beautiful children of my own, a 12 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. I have mainly worked in private nurseries, crèches and pre-schools during my career and have recently worked as a deputy manager in a private nursery. I live in the Cowley area but I am able to travel around Oxford due to having a full clean driving license. I can do school drop offs and 11:30am pick ups at St John Fisher School and 3pm pick ups at Our Lady's Primary School. We enjoy attending toddler groups, stay and play sessions, library visits, visits to different parks and play areas. We also go on day outings to farms, museums such as Pitts River and Cotswold Wildlife Park. My son is a very active outdoor child so our garden area reflects this with play house, mud kitchen, sand and water areas and arts and craft area. We enjoy getting messy, arty and creative and I love planning activities to enhance children's learning and development alongside having lots of fun. We also celebrate different celebrations and festivals throughout the year such as Chinese New Year, Valentines Day and Mother and Fathers Days. I like to explore and celebrate each child as unique individuals alongside any cultural, religious and family preferences and choices.
Smoke free and pet free household.

My Experience

I have personally experience of childcare from having my own children, a 12 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. I have also worked with children upto the age of 12 working in a private nursery that also delivers a holiday club for children aged 4-12 years. I have also worked in crèches and pre-schools during my career. I recently changed to childminding to continue my love of caring for and working with children and also care for my 3 year old son whilst working.
