About Me

I have been an Ofsted registered Childminder since January 2009. I work with an assistant, who is my husband.

I have 1 son who is 18 and studying for A Levels.

We feel that our rates are reasonable and like our service, are tailored to suit your needs.

Our service is available throughout the year on both a full-time or part-time basis, we also work during School holidays.

We have a large dining room which is used as a playroom with a range of age appropriate toys, this room also has a sofa bed for nap times. The children also have access to the living room for quiet activities.

We have a lawned secure back garden, which contains a trampoline with safety net. There is also bikes, sandpit and water tables. During the summer we have a paddling pool for children to enjoy.

We make regular visits to local attractions and museums so that the children can experience alternative activities.

We visit local parks, Heeley City Farm, Graves Park, Weston Park Museum, Frecheville Library as well as indoor play areas.

We usually do a School drop-off and collection service for Intake Primary, but with the current circumstances we are not offering that service, but as this is an ongoing situation, this is being reviewed on a half termly basis.

My Experience

It is important to us, as professional child carers, that both you and your child feels secure in the knowledge that we can provide the sort of care you're looking for. I have been registered for over 12 years now. My training and development is on-going.

We care for children of various ages, ranging from 4 months to 10 years old.

We have regular inspections from Ofsted and are graded 'good'
