I am an Ofsted registered Childminder, based in Romsey near Cupernham Lane.
We are a family of four; Simon my husband, Hanna (15) our daughter and Alex (13) our son. We also have a dog called Archie.
We are a bi-lingual family and encourage learning of other cultures, languages and diversity in needs. As a mum and friend of children on the spectrum/other SENd I am very conscious of individual children's needs; both socially, emotionally and physically no matter their background.
Our home is one of understanding, care and compassion. I incorporate a lot of learning from both home-education and curriculum based perspectives and believe in children's love of learning must first come from their interests.
Both my husband and myself are enhanced DBS & social security checked. I have over 10 years experience of working with children in mainstream and SEN primary school settings as well as teaching English as a foreign language abroad.
Our dog is a Jack Russell x Shi tzu dog and is 3years old he adores being around children and adults.
Most of the day is spent outdoors exploring the world with our dog, meeting up with other local childminders and children at local parks, local community events, beach visits as well as 'down time' at home cooking, reading, art etc.
I have under school age spaces as well as before and after-school wrap around care for Romsey primary school.
Some holiday care and term-time only contracts may also be available upon request.
Feel free to be in touch for an informal meeting to get to know me.

Our daughter loves going to Little Geckos, the days are always fun and varied with a lot of outdoor activities which she loves. She especially loves playing with Ange’s lovely little dog.
She’s made some great little friends at Ange’s and is always very excited to be dropped off in the morning.
Ange is very open and approachable and our little girl warmed to her quickly.
Our children really enjoy going to Ange. They go for wrap around care and until recently my son (who is about to start school) attended for full days. They both settled easily after starting and warmed to Ange really quickly.
My son has really enjoyed his days with Ange who is really creative and comes up with lots of original ideas to make play fun and engaging for him. He goes out and about lots as well as playing at home and in the garden which has plenty to do for little ones. He has done cooking with Ange which he loved and we got to take home some of the delicious apple cake they made!
My daughter who is 6 is always engrossed in crafts or playing when I arrive to collect them and they don't usually want to leave!
Ange is very organised and professional as well as friendly, extremely caring and welcoming. Her house is well set up for children and there is always plenty for them to do.
We are very happy to have found her and I would definitely recommend!
My little girl adores going to Ange, she is happy and always has a great time.
Ange is always approachable, helpful and caring. She spends time getting to know the child and has lots of exciting,fun activities and resources.
Its lovely being able to go to work knowing my little girl is happy and always well looked after.
Ange is very professional and built up a profile of our son before he stayed with her. They had plenty of outings and my son had a great time. He especially loved playing with ange’s dog 🙂.
