About Me

I believe in home from home where children are concerned. I am approachable, friendly, passionate and trustworthy.
I am a mother therefore I understand the anxieties that can surround finding a reliable carer for your child/children.

I aim and like to ensure a good relationship between all members of families as this facilitates excellent childcare provision and essentially the experience that the child has whilst in my care.

I am very passionate about children growing into their own and being heard. Meeting all needs emotionally, physically, mentally and holistically.

I am very flexible and very organised you have to be with three children!i love routine and I feel children thrive off this and always include play and fun in that routine so it doesn’t become mundane for children.
I am available for emergency care, last minute care if you are happy for me to care for your child in my own home.

I can offer a pick up service from home to enable and facilitate parents needs as I have business insurance on my vehicle.

Recently ofsted registered as I feel this show commitment to care and also can help parents aid funding.

I have discussed in detail my experience below however I care for 3 children at the moment who I drop off and collect from school and occasionally have had all three children overnight and for evening and emergency care.

I have facilities for children of all ages - newborn and baby toys, cots, changing mats, highchair, bouncer
A wealth of books for children of all ages!
Arts and crafts
Board games
Outdoor play - trampoline slide and sand pit chalks
For older children - although I limit and monitor (my eldest is allowed 2 hours in total a week) with parents consent have access to electronic games (Nintendo switch and PS4)
I have spare beds should you wish for overnight care.

I am able to provide a service whereby if your children are sick and you are at work I can collect from school and care for them if you feel comfortable with that - I have done this for previous parents.

Should you be interested feel free to drop me a message or email :)

Any certificates not yet added will be added shortly and/or are available on request
