About Me

I am a newly registered childminder who previously worked as a health care assistant for the last 15yrs. 11yrs of this I worked at the local GP surgery here in Lutterworth and 4yrs worked at LRI, previous to this I was a registered childminder for 5 yrs. On this venture i will be working along side my husband Martin who will work as my assistant. Martin was in the armed forces for 11yrs and then joined the prison service in 1994 and did 23yrs in service, we both decided to have a change of career after the unfortunate and sudden death of Martin’s mum who sadly passed away January 2016, this made us reevaluate what was important so hence we left our jobs this April 2017 and began our journey to work together as childminders. Working together is something that we have wanted to do for a long time and now we have that opportunity. We have 2 grown up children aged 26 & 28 neither of whom live at home, 3 lovely grand children who we see on a regular basis.

We have converted our garage into a room specifically for childminding which offers a safe space for play, learning & development. We have a secure large child friendly garden with a range of toys and activities. We will offer regular outings such as visits to farm parks, local parks, libraries, soft play areas and daily fresh air. As we are working as a team we will be able to offer school drop off and pick ups from all surrounding schools in the Lutterworth area providing before and after school care. We aim to run a home from home setting where children are cared for and will feel safe and secure. Although our core hours will be 7.30am - 6pm we are fully flexible if required.
