About Me

I have been a childminder since 2003. A mother of 3 grown-up children and have 2 grandchildren too, with a passion for gardening and walking my springer spaniels.
I had taken a break from child minding between 2013 and 2016 to care for elderly relatives and am now returning to Childminding.

My Experience

As a registered child minder I have a lot of experience of working with very young babies 6 weeks onwards to teenagers 15/16.

I particularly enjoy working with children with additional needs and am happy to receive training on specific medical conditions. I have specufic training with oxygen machines and epi-pens and administration if medication.

I enjoy taking the pre school on outings to the park and other social or sports centres for swimming, toddler rugby, cycling etc during the week and with a more extensive range of activities during school holidays I find and use local services within Bradford met and the surrounding areas to give the children a wide range of activities and experiences.

These could be simple like introducing nature treasure hunts in Park Woods, St Ives to days at the beach or Bolton Abbey or visits to Safari Parks or visiting museums and places of interest.

For older children who are confident swimmers I arrange canoeing and dingy sailing or mountain biking to name but a few activities.

Activities that incur an entrance are agreed up front with the parents and paid for prior to the activity.

Children are encouraged to help with food preparation and baking. I am able to manage allergies and food intolerances if you would require meals to be provided.

Equally I have an importance of discussion and good manners at the dinner table be it a picnic rug or a park table and bench or a more formal dinner in an evening.

I particularly enjoy art and foreign languages and am fluent in French, Spanish and have a working knowledge of Italian.

I am fully insured for childcare at my premises or at your home. All required safety measures are used or installed as required for the safety of your child/children in my home.

I have been using Maria now for about a month. I can honestly say my daughter loves her to the moon and back. She is always so enthusiastic and so easy to get along with! She accommodates for my daughters dietary needs. She is by far the best!
