About Me

My name is Liz, I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder, based in East Finchley.

My home is filled with love, laughter and fun. I live with my husband and youngest son. We have four grown up children and a growing number of grandchildren who all live locally. Cooking and entertaining is an important part of my life, our home is at the heart of our family, with everyone gravitating back for Sunday dinner (although we now have to do two sittings to fit everyone in!)
I have always been very active and enjoy keeping myself fit . My husband and I both visit our local gym 5 days a week.
I have had a successful 25 year career caring and supporting older people, but the joy of looking after my grandchildren inspired me to pursue a new career in Childcare.

I continually invest in creating an engaging, nurturing and warm environment where children will thrive and learn through play. Activities are based on supporting children's learning and development, tailored to their age, individual needs and interests. I have a vast range of toys, books, games and activities which take place inside and outside in my secure, magical fun filled garden, including a sandpit, trampoline and water activity table.

A typical day at Sunflower Childcare includes trips to local parks and playgrounds, and visits to local activity centres where children get to socialise and play with other children. We have storytime from my extensive collection of books, arts and crafts sessions, messy play and music making.
I provide healthy home cooked meals and snacks to support your child in staying healthy and strong.

Both my husband and I are qualified in CACHE LEVEL 3 Home Based Childcare. I am Ofsted Registered and possess and Enhanced CRB, Paediatric First Aid Certificate and Safeguarding Qualifications. I am also very particular about Health and Safety and cleanliness in general and my house is fully equipped to ensure it’s child and baby friendly.

I am proud to be able to offer a high standard, affordable childcare option for your family..

My Experience

I am a Mother of 4, Grandmother to 6 and Aunt with over 25 years experience of supporting people
in the community having had a successful career in the care sector. I am proud to be able to draw on my extensive experience to offer a happy and stimulating environment for children to grow and parents to know their children will be safe and happy when they are left.

My professional training allows me to ensure the care I provide is inline with the EYFS and Ofsted requirements. Both my husband and I are qualified in CACHE LEVEL 3 Home Based Childcare. I am Ofsted Registered ( January 2019) and possess and Enhanced CRB, Paediatric First Aid Certificate and Safeguarding Qualifications.
