About Me

My name is Joanne Duddridge and I have 15 years of childcare experience and a passion for good quality childcare. I have always loved children and looking after them, helping them grow and develop and most of all having fun in a safe and loving environment.

I live with my husband Matthew who is also my assistant, and our three children, Jack, Harry and Katie. We also have 2 rabbits. As a family we enjoy days out to the park and play areas as well as enjoying lots of imaginative play at home and playing in the garden.

My aim is to make my setting a home from home for your child so that they feel relaxed and I will always:
• Provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment for all children.
• Aim to bring learning to life with the activities/outings I provide.
• Treat each child as an individual.
• Involve parents and guardians where possible and value their contributions.
• Communicate the child’s progress and any concerns/issues promptly and professionally with the parents/guardians.
• Deliver the Early years foundation stage.
• Care for and interact with the children in a consistent and professional manner.
• Attend regular training and keep all qualifications up to date and in line with legislation.
