About Me

My name is Bonita and I am a registered childminder based in Durrington. I’ve been married to my husband Mervin for the past 11 years and have been a mother to a beautiful 6 year old girl and a 2 year old boy, and 2 adorable friendly cats. I am a very loving and caring, hardworking and honest person.

I offer the EYFS for under 5 year olds and help children learn and develop in all areas of development. I provide a safe home-based environment, outside play, nature walks, days to local playgroups and the library, and other planned outings. We do lots of baking, messy play and arts and crafts activities. I also offer wrap around care, drop off and pick up from Durrington Infants school.

My Experience

I have been a care and support worker for the past 7 years and while spending time with my own child and loved every second I have decided to start my own Childminding business since March 2019 and still be able to do what I love, being around my kids and offer the same care to other families.

Bonita has been looking after my little boy on and off for the past 2 years.

My little boy loves going to Bonita's in the morning and misses her on the days he goes to Avondale Nursery. My son has learnt so much and Bonita continues to help us with milestones, she supported us through potty training, getting him to try more food, she also motivates him to try new things and getting him ready to return to pre-school in September.

They are off doing something new daily, if it’s not play group, library, soft play, arts and crafts, mud kitchen, visiting the park, going for walks and little adventures. We always have exciting stories from him at dinner time.

Both my husband and I travel for work and Bonita has been a fantastic support when one of us is away. We both love receiving pictures updating us on my son's antics throughout the day. The detailed developmental report we have also received from Bonita at the end of term was also very informative.

I would definitely recommend Bonita as a childminder. Very kind, friendly and professional. Our son is happy, in a safe, educational and fun environment.
