About Me

I have worked in childcare for 30+ years starting as a nanny before moving into nursery work after 6 years, then into childminding.
I am married, a mum of one 17 year old daughter and owner of a cheeky and slighty excitable 9 year old terrier dog!
We live in Rushden, Northants and have a lovely space for the children to play in as well as a good sized enclosed rear garden for lots of outdoor play.
I place great value in my family life and this includes my extended family and friends and I try to bring this into the care I give to the children that I look after.

My Experience

As previously stated I have worked in childcare since qualifying in 1999.
I began nannying, which I loved but decided to make the move into nursery to expand my experience of working with children in larger groups.
I spent many happy years in nursery working my way up from nursery nurse through to management. I had the privilege to run three successful nurseries, including setting one up from scratch.
After having my own daughter I decided to change my role and become a childminder when she went to school. I have been childminding for 14 years now and love everyday of it!!

My Qualifications

NNEB (Nursery Nurse Qualification), First Aid, SEN training, High/scope education training.
