About Me


Thanks for viewing my profile.

I have been a registered childminder for 10 years and received a good rating in my last Ofsted inspection. I have 5 children aged between 4-17 so as you can imagine I have plenty of experience with children. We are a large family which also includes our boxer dog Bentley. I like to let the kids have a variety of entertaining learning experiences such as messy play and building towers. We from time to time visit other childminding setting and childminding groups so the children can interact with other children too.

My Experience

I have been childminding for the last 11 years I've always loved children right from a young age I used to babysit at any opportunity I got. I take children from any age, and will happily look after them through to their teenage years. I'm flexible with hours I work from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday unfortunately I don't work weekends or bank holidays. My hourly rate is £4.50 ph I work all year round apart with the exception of family holidays which I usually take weeks in the summer, and 2 weeks in October, I don't work Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve or New Year's Day. I have my daughter that works with me as a Childminder’s assistant and she is also registered to undertake this role

I have had Michelle as my child minder for over a year now and she is brilliant my girls love going and I couldn't be more comfortable leaving my children in her care Michelle is very flexible and will do anything possible to try and help you and your needs I feel like meeting Michelle at the time that I did was fait as I was desperate and because my working hours were different to the usual 9-5 it was so hard to find a childcare provider that fitted my needs however Michelle made it her mission to accommodate me and I can't thank her enough she saved my life as a working mum lovely lady couldn't ask for a more caring and nurturing child minder.
