I attend local toddler groups and take the children on regular outings and activity days. I have a wide range of toys and resources to enable the children to access all areas of the EYFS. I am fully CRB checked and have First Aid training, I work alongside an assistant and together we can do before and after school care as well as school drop offs in the local area. Please contact me via my e mail address if you would like to have a chat about your childcare needs.

I really couldn't recommend Lynne enough! She cared for both my boys one from 4 months old! I was always worried about leaving my baby with someone else but both boys enjoyed their time with Lynne!
They came along massively with communicating, and socialising with others.
They had plenty of fun days out! My eldest always asks to go see 'the boys' I'm really sad that they have parted and if we weren't relocating I would keep them within this care.

I couldn't of wished for a better childminder for my boys, nothing was too much and always able to help at short notice!

Thank you so much!
