Hello, I am an OFSTED registered Childminder and have been registered since 2010. I have 2 beautiful children, ages 19 and 13. I have recently moved from Oxhey Village and I am now in Abbots Langley Village. I have an open plan house with a good size garden. I can do drop offs and collections from locals schools. We do various activities such as messy play, visiting local toddler and music groups, as well as regular outings to the local parks and farms. During half term periods we sometimes go bowling, visit the cinema and museums depending on the ages of the children I have.
As well as having 2 children of my own, my previous work experience was in a School enviroment with up to 2,000 children. I have also done voluntary work at my daughter's School, assisting in Nursery, and helping older children with reading etc.
I have a CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Home-based Childcare. A valid First-Aid certificate, introduction to the EYFS, as well as Safeguarding children.
I currently have spaces available. Please email for days and times.

Shirley has been looking after my son after school and during the holidays since he started reception last year. She provides a perfect home from home environment and he's absolutely loved spending time there. I was a bit nervous about him going straight from a new school to a new childminder, but Shirley is so loving and warm that she put my mind at ease and my son settled in really quickly. She always organises fun activities for the children and sends photos of everything they've been up to. Shirley is truly an amazing childminder - I highly recommend!!
Shirley has been looking after my little girl since she was 10 months old. She has a warm and caring way and her setting is the perfect home away from home environment. My little girl has such fun there.
She attends playgroups and dance classes which my daughter loves and when the weather is good she takes regular trips to parks and occasional trips to the farm. She also provides fun activities such as crafts at home too. It's great to see the photos she sends through showing us all the wonderful indoor and outdoor activities she’s been up to during the day.
I would highly recommend Shirley as a loving caring childminder.

Thank you! 😊
Shirley has looked after my son and daughter over the past 5/6 years. They were 6 and 8 years old at the time and Shirley provided a loving and welcoming place to return to after school and during the school holidays. Holiday activities were fun and varied. As the children's requirements changed as they grew, Shirley was very in tune and adaptable. I would not hesitate to recommend Shirley for your childcare needs. My children have fond memories of their time spent with her.

Thank you Emilia 😊
Shirley has been looking after my son for nearly 18 months - after school Mon-Fri and also full time during school holidays. He absolutely loves spending time at Shirley's and has been well and truly welcomed into her lovely family. Shirley provides amazing, friendly, professional child care and organizes lots of learning/fun activities for Joseph and the other kids to involves themselves in. She has proven to be flexible and reliable when it comes to unforeseen commitments and will go above and beyond to ensure any extra requirements are considered. She always keeps me up to date with Joseph's progress and is always quick to respond to any communication or questions. I cannot speak highly enough of Shirley and the care she provides my son - highly recommended !!
