About Me

Hello, my name is Diana and I am a registered childminder in Grove Park with over 16 years of experience as a childminder. I am Ofsted Registered GOOD and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. I live in a spacious house 1 minute walk from Marvel’s Lane Primary School.
I live with my husband, 17 year old son and 19 year old daughter (who is at uni during term-time), and I also have a 22 year old daughter. All are DBS checked.

Children will love regular music sessions, arts and crafts (including jewellery-making), indoor as well as outdoor games in the garden, having responsibilities such as feeding fish and much more. I also offer help with homework and 11+ tests. I regularly take children out to explore e.g. park, library, farm and museum visits. With younger children we often visit local groups for babies and toddlers.

I accept childcare vouchers, offer tax-free childcare, and 30 hours free childcare for eligible children. I hold a full drivers licence (although I encourage walking where possible).

All children are warmly welcomed and are encouraged to embrace their cultures. They become a part of a family.

My Experience

Previously living and working in Southwark, I decided to move my childcare to Grove Park after moving here. My experience is with children of all ages and includes running a popular after-school club with an assistant, catering for children over the age of 5, working in nurseries across London (caring for the needs of those under 5), and childminding children with special educational needs.

My Qualifications

In 2016 I completed a degree in Early Childhood Studies, a course which helped me to understand how important it is for children to be in a stimulating environment where they can be free to explore through play and learning.

NVQ Level 2 award in childcare

Diploma in Childcare

First aid certificate

Food safety and hygiene certificate

...and many more - these are available to see on visits to my setting.

My Availability

I offer pick and drop services from nearby schools and nurseries, and full and part-time childminding during term-time and holidays. I work Monday – Friday 7am-7pm, and am a friendly, flexible worker offering affordable childcare so don't hesitate to ask, and come and visit my setting!
