About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder. My URN number is 129186 if you wish to read my inspection results.I am a mother to three young adults now, 32, 29 and 28, all with good careers . This is brilliant for me as I can focus fully on my childminding children as I do not have any little ones of my own to contend with,enabling me to give children my full attention.

I am happily married to my husband Mark and have been for 35 years.

The children in my care get lots of fresh air and exercise as well as opportunities to rest etc.

We visit toddler groups, Library sessions, Tumble tots, and socialise with lots of other children regularly.

My Experience

I have been in childcare for 41 years. I started as a nanny but also had jobs as a Mothers help, and did a year of Maternity nursing. I started childminding 30 years ago when I decided it would be better for my first child if I started having children into our own home after sucessfully nannying with her for the first two years.

Past and present written and telephone references are available.

I also worked for one year in the ambulance service, but decided to go back into childcare as I missed working with children. I am very responsible and take the welfare of your child very seriously, I have an outstanding rating from Ofsted in keeping children safe whilst having fun. Children are eager to learn and what better way to do this than through play. I observe and get to know your child's individual interests and needs and plan activities accordingly. I also encourage children to be inquisitive and think for themselves and manage their own risk taking. (under supervision of course for the little one's)
