About Me

I’m Ray and I’m an Ofsted registered Childminder based in Hertford on the Foxholes estate.

I live in a house where my living room is a dedicated playroom for the children, full of activities and toys to keep them occupied. As well as the above I also enjoy doing arts and crafts with the children and often go for walks or do outdoor activities.
I have my own garden for the children to take part in various activities outside with lots of toys for them to enjoy.

I’ve created a home from home family environment for the children I care for.

I offer activities and around the clock care for all ages and all abilities.

I come from a very close and loving family. I have three nieces and a nephew that I have helped care for from birth.

My Experience

I have Childminding experience of all ages.
I’m a placid person with lots of patience and can entertain any age group of child.
I have experience of doing school runs.

I would thoroughly recommend Ray if you are looking for a Brilliant childminder. He has always been kind, caring and provided a safe and stimulating environment for both of my children (aged 19 months and 4 years)
Ray has been accommodating of my children’s needs and will work along side you to provide consistent care for your children.
Ray is always happy and my children have loved being looked after by him.

Ray has now been minding my child for a year and a half, from the age of 7 months and now he is 2. Ralphies development has come on leaps and bounds with Ray. Starting to now say colours, counting to 10 and more words, I can only thank Ray.
As a full time working Mum, I have every confidence in Ray looking after Ralphie and he always puts me at ease knowing that his in safe hands.
I cant praise Ray enough and I know the bond Ralphie has with him is unbreakable.
Thanks to Ray and cant recommend him enough!! xx

Ray has been a child minder for both my one year old and three year old for the last 6 months, and he has been great. Punctual, always happy and my children love him.
They come home happy, having had a great day with ray, doing art or playing outside in the garden.
He is extremely caring and great with children. We will be very sad to leave him.

I am so happy that I made the correct choice and chose Ray as my sons childminder. Ralphie started with Ray when he was just seven months old so to say I was nervous is an understatement.
At all times Ray made me feel at ease and since being under Rays control - Ralphie has come on leaps and bounds in all aspects. Ralphie is now nearly 1 years old and so settled.
When dropping him, he doesnt even look back at me and holds his arms out for Ray.
Very happy Mum and would defo recommend Ray to anyone!
