About Me

Thank you for taking the time to look over my profile. I understand the importance and stress of finding the right childcare for your little one and understand that the transition needs to be as smooth as possible and will work with you to ensure this happens.

My name is Hayley and I am 32 years old. I am a fully registered childminder. I live with my partner in Colchester. We have a 3 year old son who is our first child. We live in a lovely house with a spacious back garden where the children can free flow between indoor and outdoor activities.

I have an assistant on hand to support with specific care routines who is paediatric first aid trained and holds a full DBS and clean drivers licence.

I provide healthy and nutritional homemade meals and snacks.

My Experience

I have worked within the childcare sector for over 15 years, I became an apprentice within a nursery and over the years have gained qualifications and worked my way up from apprentice to deputy manager, I then worked as an assessor to deliver childcare qualifications to apprentices.

I have also worked as a private Nanny having sole charge 3 boys under the age of 8. Each of the boys had different individual need such as minor learning difficulty and fear of water. I later became a mothers help for a family with English as a second language, I worked closely with the family often having sole charge of 3 girls aged 4, 2 and new born. I supported the family in routines with the children.

I have great experience in working with Special Educational Needs and adapting activities to promote inclusion.

I have been successful delivering childcare and teaching qualifications to apprentices for "Children's and Young Persons Workforce", “Early Years Educator” and "Support for Teaching and Learning."

Hayley is absolutely fantastic! She offers a friendly and professional service.
My son was with her full time for a year and I couldn't fault her at all. I pulled my son out of nursery because I wasn't happy and sent him to Hayley instead. I was worried at first because he took so long to settle at nursery but those worries soon left as he settled quickly and I knew he was in safe hands.
My son struggled with his speech but Hayley started teaching him sign language which was amazing!
Hayley would always keep in contact throughout the day and I could see what my son was up to.
She has a wonderful homely setting and big garden too.
She would regularly organise day trips out with the kids which was the best part, something they don't really get at nursery.
I never had to worry about what my son are because I knew he was eating nutritious meals and having fun helping make them.
She also did a great job helping me potty train my 2 year old which I will be forever grateful for.
My son adored her little boy and partner too! Fantastic family and amazing childminder!
We miss her dearly! Couldn't recommend her enough :)

Hayley was professional and reliable with us and was very good fun and excellent with the children who really enjoyed their first day being looked after by Hayley. Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing Hayley again. Just the sitter we were hoping for, thank you so much.
