About Me

Hello my name is Lauren, I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Loughton. I live with my husband and I have 4 children, a daughter of 8 years, and 3 sons aged, 6 years, 4 years and 2. We also have a tabby cat and a hamster. We have a buzzing busy home, which provides lots of opportunities for play and fun social activities.

We are an active family, who love the outdoors. We often find ourselves on forest trips, den building or bug hunting! We are lucky to have a large garden and make lots of use of this, mainly digging and planting or getting messy in the mud kitchen.

From having 4 children of my own, I understand the pressures of finding the right person to care for your child. I aim to provide a warm and stimulating environment which has a home from home feel. Along with this, I also understand the importance of implementing and following the Early Years Statutory Framework in my setting and helping to support and develop your child through the seven main areas of learning.

I appreciate the importance of a good working relationship with parents, I believe communication is key and will help your child feel settled and secure in my care.

I will provide a daily diary and conduct regular assessments to ensure your child is meeting their age appropriate developmental stages.

My Experience

Being a Mum to 4 little ones has armed me with lots of experience and has also driven me to pursue a career in childcare.

I have volunteered at a local church play group, mainly helping and supporting the children whilst they undertook craft/messy activities.

I am OFSTED registered

My son has been with Lauren since December, he has settled in great and grown in confidence thanks to Lauren. Lauren is warm, friendly and kind and the kids love her as do I. She has a lovely home from home setting with a wide variety of toys and activities to keep the children engaged. My son loves Laurens fruit platters there his favourite. Lauren always keeps me updated about my childs day and he has really blossomed in her care and also confides in Lauren if he has has a tough day at school. As a setting and a family they are always up to something fun and love the outdoors. I feel very lucky to have found Lauren and would highly recommend her.

My daughter has been with Lauren since June 2019 and sending her there was absolutely the best decision for us. Lauren is so lovely and she really makes such an effort to make sure my daughter feels part of the family. She loves going there, every day they do fun activities and trips out and I know that she is safe and having a wonderful time which gives me such peace of mind at work. Lauren fills in a book each day keeping me up to date with all her progress and send me photos so I can see how much fun they are having. If you are looking for a childminder in the Debden area I cannot recommend Lauren enough.
