About Me

Hello! My name is Charmaine, and I live in a 3 bedroom house with a good size garden. The downstairs of my house is used for Childminding. It consists of two play rooms (joined together), downstairs toilet and a sensory corner/quiet area in the hall.
Most resources are made with natural materials and are at the children's height, so they can freely pick and choose.
Weekly we attend playgroups, parks and libraries. We also go on bike rides and walks through the forest.
I very much follow the children's interest so we may also have a cooking session, or jump in muddy puddles, like Peppa Pig (Paddle suits provided)

All children from 4 months - 5 years old are welcome.

My Experience

I have a passion for working with children and also a sound knowledge of childcare practices gained both from academic study and on-the-job experience.
I have been working within the childcare sector for the past 20 years, caring for children from birth to eleven years old. I also have my own three children aged 4,8 and 10.
