Hi,I am an Ofsted registered childminder with a grading of “Good” on my last inspection. I am insured with Pacey and both my husband and I have an enhanced DBS, as do my 2 eldest children. I am married to Alistair and we have 5 children aged 10-21 years old. I have worked with adults with learning disbilities for around 15 years before taking some time out with my own children. I volunteered at our local childrens centre until a play practitioner role became available. I did this for a couple of years until i felt it was time to move on. A vacancy in a nursery became available and i started off 1-1 supporting a little girl with autism as she did her final year before she started school. I worked full time at this nursery until it became too much for my family and my own need for a different challenge. I registered as a childminder in 2016 and havent looked back! I thoroughly enjoy the opportunities of my new role, getting out and about to visit new places and meet new friends big and small. Both my eldest children have an enhanced DBS and have a paediatric first aid qualification. Both are registered as my assistants on the rare occasion i need them.

My usual hours are 7.00am-6pm though different needs may be considered as my 3 youngest children attend sports clubs most evenings. I collect from Westwood school and from Maple Grove preschool at the end of the morning session. I may be able to collect from Burrowmoor school/ preschool depending on where my other minded children attend and if it fits in with my current small mindees routines.
