I am a Ofsted registered childminder in Caterham Valley. I have an NNEB and a NVQ level 3 in Teaching and Learning in schools. I have worked with children since 2000, I undertook my NNEB to become a nanny but transferred my care and skills to childminding which I have been doing since 2011. I live with my husband and my daughters, aged 7 and 10 Years old.
I have always loved children which is why I chose a career in childcare, I attended Coulsdon College and gained my NNEB and then went onto to do a student placement at St Johns C of E school to gain my NVQ in Teaching and Learning.
I offer a family, friendly environment and I have lots of fun toys for all ages. Some of these include musical instruments, games, puzzles, sand and water play, small world play and craft activities to encourage learning through play. I have had extensive work done on my garden to give the children a large, safe play area which includes a Mud Kitchen, climbing frame/swing set, trampoline and many ride on's and scooters. I regularly visit childminder and toddler groups for story time or messy play activities and visit local parks and the farm.
I was a Nanny for 11 years caring for childen from newborn to thirteen years old. I also have multiple birth and overnight care experience as well as being a mum to two children myself now. I have been childminding since 2011, caring for children aged 1 year to 11 years old.

Misti looked after my eldest daughter for 3 years and my youngest daughter has now been cared for by Misti for a year.
Misti is very caring and nurturing, she takes the children to the farm, playgroups, national trust visits etc which my daughter really enjoys.
Whilst at work I know my girls are being well looked after and love getting the happy pictures of them during the day.
Misti has a very welcoming home, her family and the other children are lovely and my girls have thrived in her setting. I highly recommended Misti 😊
My daughter started with Misti two years ago and she has thrived. It is a home from home & my daughter loves being there. They do lots of activities and go on fun days out. My little girl has just started school and Misti was amazing at helping her get 'school ready'. We still have Misti as after school care & my daughter is so happy to still see her. Would highly recommend Misti! X
Misti has looked after both my children since just before they were one and both have absolutely thrived there. They are now both in school and she still has them for wraparound care and I couldn’t think of a better environment for them.
She has always worked with us to give the best care and has always been on hand for advice on potty training, sleeping habits, dummies etc. She is wonderful with all the children and her home environment is so lovely and exactly what we wanted. We love the fact there are children of different ages as it means they all get to learn from each other and play together and I believe it helps the little ones with their speech as well as learning to share.
Misti is a truly wonderful childminder and we are so grateful to have her.
Misti looked after my son until he started school. I immediately felt at ease with Misti and more importantly so did my son.
Misti provided a 'home from home' environmemt along with excellent facilities. The setting was stimulating, caring and fun; my son looked forward to going there each day! To this day, I believe Misti's care and facilities top any nursery setting( we have attended both).
Couldn't recommend enough and if you asked my son, who is now 6years old, he would say the same!
Misti looked after my son before she had her youngest daughter and she did a brilliant job. My son was safe and happy and I couldn’t have asked for more.
Being a new mother, I used her as a fountain of knowledge and I am very grateful for all the parenting advice she gave me.
As the years went by, it was always great to bump into her at different groups and have a chance to observe her nurturing nature. It reassured me she had been the right choice for our family.
