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 5 and 8 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.
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 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.
Misti has looked after my eldest daughter for nearly two years and I feel choosing Misti as our childminder is one of the best choices I have ever made! Her home is spacious with a fabulous all weather garden for the kids to enjoy. I know my daughter will be eating home made, healthy meals and I always look forward to tasting the special treats Misti bakes with the children during the week.
I feel that Misti truly cares about my daughter, her feelings, her experiences and her development. I am a teacher and respect the learning environment Misti has created in her home. My daughter goes on weekly adventures to local farms and library groups (I’m often jealous that I miss out while being at work!)
I highly recommend sending your children to Misti (if there is availability!) I will be sending my second daughter as soon as she is old enough.
