About Me

I’m a mum of two lovely children, aged 2 and 4. We live in the heart of Hersham Village, opposite the green, and around the corner from Burhill School.

Opened as of Jan 2022, following the completion of my registration with tiney, a fantastic childminding provider registered with Ofsted. I have term time availability 7:45-5:30 and cater to before and after school care, including drop off and pick to Burhill.

We love spending time outdoors, especially in the park, or on the greens all of which we are lucky enough to live around the corner from. We also have a fully enclosed garden dedicated to all year outdoor play, with lots of exciting toys and a mud kitchen, sand and water trays and a trampoline. It’s a lovely space where your child will have the opportunity to be outside everyday experiencing their natural environment and watch the seasons change. My son loves nothing more than climbing into the flower beds with a digger, or exploring mini beasts with his magnifying glass and binoculars!

When your child starts with me, they will be welcomed as part of the family, to feel as though they belong. My home will be an extension of their own and they know that coming here is an opportunity for lots of exciting play, with extensive open ended toys and activities to support fun, learning and promote independence. We are a very creative and crafty house with a big emphasis on messy play! No two days are the same.

I’ve done the London commute and been a working mum so am fully sympathetic to all this entails.

Home cooked balanced meals and snacks are provided and our children are encouraged to get involved in cooking and baking.

My Experience

Qualified childminder with two young children of my own, I offer a home from home setting inspired by the Montessori and Froebel philosophies and following the EYFS.

My degree was in Psychology and Anthropology and I have always worked in the education and early years sectors. Initially as a nursery and teachers assistant, both here in England and internationally, and most recently in recruitment catering to nurseries and schools for over ten years. Opening my own childminding setting feels like a dream come true. I want to offer all the fun you have at nursery, the resources and activities, but to also cater for one to one individual care.
