About Me

My name is Karen
I am an OFSTED Registered childminder for 21 years, I was graded Good in all ares by OFSTED (last inspection November 2015)
I can provide 2, 3 & 4 year funded places 15 hours per week or from September 30 hours for eligible parents.
I live in Dukinfield with my husband, adult son and 2 children ages 16 & 10.
My home has been planned with childminding in mind and I provide a warm, welcoming and homely environment with a dedicated playroom which is warm, bright and inviting which provides children with both fun and educational resources which the children can access easily.
I provide free play and planned activities for all ages (6 months- 13 years)
The children have easy access to my garden which has a wide range of outdoor play equipment and can be used in all weathers as I have a astro tuff grass area and a playhouse for shelter.
We spend a lot of time in my garden and the children can choose when they want to go outside to play which promotes their good health.
I plan activities around a child's interests (child-led) and to further their development to the next level.
We also enjoy group activities which helps a child's Personal, Social and Emotional development.
We enjoy visiting tots groups, parks, indoor play centres and libraries in our community.
My school pickups is from St. John's nursery and school in Dukinfield which is only a 2 minute walk from my home.
