About Me

I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder based in the semi-rural village of Merrybent, Darlington. I live with my husband, three children aged 16, 13 and 10 and our very friendly Labrador, Oscar.

As a family, we enjoy going to live music events, supporting our local football team, taking part in outdoor adventures
and exploring the countryside with our beloved Labrador, Oscar.

My Experience

Ofsted Registered Childminder with many years' experience of delivering EYFS, the National Curriculum and supporting SEN children on a 1:1 basis.

In the past I have worked as a Teaching Assistant in a primary school across all year groups but primarily based in the EYFS classroom, a 1:1 Support Assistant to children with complex disabilities and also an Early Years Practitioner based in a Pre-School. In all of these roles I contributed to planning, organising and implementing EYFS and National Curriculum across Key Stage 1 and 2; as well as differentiating the curriculum to suit children's individual needs.

I have excellent working relationships with the local primary school and Pre-School and provide wrap around care for High Coniscliffe Primary School and High Coniscliffe Pre School.

Children in my care enjoy the local surroundings, attend community events, go swimming, climbing and trampolining, visit playgroup/pre-school, attend rhyme time and music sessions plus much more; whilst also benefiting from a rich learning environment suitable for their individual needs to enable them to reach their full potential.
