About Me

Hello my name is Laura I’m Level 4 qualified in childcare and education in my last Ofsted inspection i was rated a GOOD provider, . I’m fully insured and dbs checked and first aid trained

I offer a home from home fun filled learning environment I also have a playroom where children have free access to play and explore. Being a childminder is not just a job to me I see it as a privilege to be able to guide children and watch them grow and develop and learn so much.

I understand that leaving your child in someone else's care is a very big step, this is why I offer a settling in period which allows you and your child to get to know me and your child to feel comfortable in my home. It also helps me to learn about your child and their unique little ways their likes and their dislikes and fears and also learn your routine for them so I can tailor my care to suit their needs.

I offer a small ratio which ensures that your child will get the time and attention to grow and develop learn and explore within my setting.

I offer a professional service to both parent and child by providing a service that caters for all childcare neeeds with flexibility for individual family needs.

I follow the early years foundation stage (EYFS) I plan activities based on your child's individual level of learning also using topics of interest to your child. Taking into account your child's age and stage of development and plan next steps. All children's work and achievements will be in their learning journals and parents are free to look at this at anytime, I will feed back each day about what we have done that day.

My Son has only been going a short time to Laura's, but in that short time, she has made him feel at home, has learnt his uniqueness and been incredibly patient with both of us! It's the 1st time in leaving him anywhere and I was very nervous. Laura put me at ease, informed me of everything, had time for me and I would highly recommend her! My Son is happy to go to Laura's now and comes out smiling and so chatty like he has had the best day. Couldn't wish for more

Laura is an amazing friend & childminder to my daughter, she is fun & bubbly & enjoys working within her role as a childminder. My daughter loves going to her sessions which are twice a week, there’s always a warm welcome at the door & upon leaving a cheery goodbye. My daughter has only had a few sessions but since going has spent lots of time learning new, different things each time. My daughter does not communicate verbally but has recently been learning a few words thanks to Laura. Laura is a godsend as when home my daughter never leaves her baby brother alone so when at her sessions it gives me a chance to have some free time with him.

Both my girls go to Laura's. she is an amazing childminder and I have been lucky to find her. My girls go to toddler groups, libraries and parks regularly. They have bus rides and do lots of great play activities. We receive lots of lovely pictures and the girls really love going. Laura will work with you for toilet training. Feeding themselves and helps them to progress in every aspect of development. Cannot fault her in any way. Would HIGHLY recommend.
