About Me

I have been childminding for 2 years now and love. I work along side my wife Bernie who has been childminding for 17+ years.

My Experience

We are a married team, Bernie and Tom, based in Fareham, Hampshire. Bernie has been childminding for over 17 years, and Tom for 2 years. We have three sons, 21, 19 and 15.

We do a variety of activities with the little ones, such as play-dough, puzzles, crafts, baking, role play, boxed games and garden play.

We also do trips to places of interest, for example, Marwell Zoo,
adventure parks, Butlins and the beach. As well as those places, we also visit toddler groups, parks and the library.

Our service complies with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and meets the individual needs of each child. We are accredited Early Years Education (EYE) providers and are able to offer 15 hours free government funded childcare to children aged over 3 years. We like the children to have fun with us as they play and learn in a safe and loving home environment.

My daughter has been cared for by bernie and Tom since we moved to the area - January 2013.

What can I say?! Bernie and Tom are warm, friendly, open, genuine and honest and my daughter has thrived under their care! The atmosphere is relaxed and fun, their home has an amazing playroom and bernie and Tom do so many activities.

From helping my daughter learn her numbers, to arts and crafts activities, to going out and about, to parks and play groups .... There is never a dull moment! They have encouraged my daughter socially, helping her understand health and safety, manners and how to interact with the other children. Under their care she has grown in confident and has learnt so much!

In addition to helping neve, they've also been incredibly flexible and helpful in accommodating our childcare needs ... They've allowed us to have flexible hours as I adapted to the hours of my new job as well as helping with picking up and dropping off my daughter when we had car problems ... Amazing!

They have a great knowledge of local play groups, pre schools and schools ... They've helped us get to know a new community and offered well informed advice.

I am sooooo happy to have found bernie and Tom and feel lucky and relieved to know I can rely on them to continue to care for my daughter as she starts school in September.

Bernie and Tom ... Thank you so much, Neve has been with 2 previous childminders and at a nursery .... But with you, she is absolutely at her happiest!
