About Me

Hello, I am a childminder in Kingston Upon Thames. I have been qualified since September 2020 and am registered with an Ofsted regulated agency.

I can offer your child a welcoming and friendly home from home environment.

I enjoy offering activities based largely around nature, art and music and will incorporate these into your child's learning journey to become school ready, or to continue their school or nursery learning.

I have Montessori inspired areas set up in my home specifically for your child to access, enjoy and learn from. We also love spending time exploring outdoors, learning about nature and our community, baking and learning about nutrition as well as lots of sensory based activities for little ones.

We love going out on trips to places such as Kew Gardens, London Wetlands Centre, Hampton Court Magic Gardens, the local farm and pick your own.

I offer sessions either term time only or throughout the year.

I can drop off and pickup from Rainbows nursery (attached to Latchmere School) and Poppets nursery (St Agatha’s Drive).

Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a visit or discuss what I can offer in further detail.

My Experience

I am fairly newly qualified, however I have two children of my own so have plenty of experience looking after children and helping them to learn and enjoy activities.

Previously, I worked in children’s social care as a support worker at a children’s home and also as part of the Adult's and Children's social care support team at my Local Authority.

My Qualifications

I am food safety, safeguarding and first aid trained and am currently working towards my level 3 childcare course as well as a learning through nature course.

My Availability

Apologies, but I am now full for childminding services. However please do consider getting in touch with me for any future child care needs in case my situation has changed.

We had Tara look after our 2yr old boy for a few days and he absolutely loved her! They got on really well and quickly became friends. She is very easy going and approachable and he thoroughly enjoyed his time with her! We’d definitely have Tara look after our son again in a heartbeat!
