About Me

I am a qualified Primary School Teacher and am passionate about young children's learning. I have a four-and-a-half year old daughter and became an Ofsted Registered Childminder in order to achieve a better balance between work and family life. As a working mum I have experienced first hand having to leave my little daughter in order to go to work and I know how important it is to feel confident you have chosen the right person. We all want our little ones to feel safe and confident enough to explore, learn and thrive. If you think your child might like to join me and my daughter and perhaps become one of our little band of little learners, get in touch and we can arrange a no-obligation, informal visit so you can see first-hand what we’re all about.

Some of the activities on offer:
With the relaxation of Covid restrictions we are now attending Bounce and Rhythm at the library as well as Bulrushes and sometimes visit The Great Outdoors. Also, we are still making use of Swanley Park for walking, playing, nature spotting spotting and feeding the ducks as well as visiting local woodlands and other open spaces. The afternoons are mostly spent at home playing with our many toys, reading and listening to stories, getting creative with Arts and Crafts, exploring our senses with messy play, dressing up, growing things and exploring the garden.
Everything we do is underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and you will receive regular updates on your child’s progress, either in person or via a dedicated app on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Careful cleaning and the use of separate, individual resources are among our precautions to help lower the risk of Covid 19 infection so that your little ones are as safe as they can be, without compromising on fun, learning and feeling secure.
