About Me

Hi All

My name is Natasha, I am 36 years old and live with my husband and 7 year old son in Cornholme Todmorden. Our home is a big 4 bedroom terrace not to far from Todmorden Park, which provides a warm, safe and friendly home environment for children of all ages.

I work with an assistant called Hayley and together we aim to to offer your child the tailored individual care you would expect from a childminding setting. But also offer the structured, stimulating and routine based environment that will allow your child to learn and develop.

We both hold full clean driving licences and have access to 2 cars. Which means there will also be plenty of opportunities for outdoor pursuits.

My Experience

I have over 15 years of experience working in a number of different child care settings. Within my latest role as a Senior Early Years Advisor for Rochdale Borough Council, I developed critical knowledge of the EYFS framework for child development. In particular I gained extensive practical experience in implementing methods that will encourage your child's development in the following areas;

1. Communication and Language skills
2. Physical development
3. Personal, Social and Emotional Development
4. Literacy
5. Mathematics
6. Understanding of the World
7. Expressive Arts and Design

Your child starts off as a little seedling, with the right care and attention we believe he/she can grow into an Oak Tree.

My son has been going to Oak Tree for just over a month now, 3 days a week. Before he started Natasha and Mark let my little boy have 3 settling in sessions to make sure he was comfortable and also got used to being dropped off.
Since starting I have already seen such an improvement in him! picking up on new words and also playing and sharing with other children. He absolutely loves going, he’s aIways asking for “Tasha’s house” haha.
I get sent regular updates on how he's doing through the day with a photo.
He’s always bringing things home that he’s made like easter baskets, drawings and handmade place mats. He also loves going on trips to the park!
Natasha and Marks house is lovely and spacious and I am very glad I chose to send my son here!

Natasha and Mark have been looking after my 2 children since January. My eldest has SEN and they see to her needs perfectly. Natasha and Mark do activities with the children which my daughter can join in with despite her being a full time wheelchair user. I can drop my children off knowing 100% they are safe in there hands. Natasha and Mark also provide support to my family and are very good at putting my mind at rest when my anxiety plays up. Thank you so much for looking after my girls so well I am so glad we found you. My girls always come home happy telling me what an amazing day they've had. Definitely recommend.p
