About Me

A professional childminding service in the heart of Beaulieu. I adore working with children, and have a degree in Early Childhood Studies and a background in Nursery Management.

I am married to Matt and we have two children; my daughter who attends the local school and son (aged 2) who is with me in my care. I also have a cat named Ben who likes to say hello!

As well as my background in Early Years, I have most recently run baby signing and sensory play classes. I really enjoy encouraging communication and actively encourage simple signing, in my setting.

Children have access to a play room with a large selection of toys to peak all interests and lots of outside play in the safe enclosed garden. We are very lucky to have so much within walking distance, including parks and toddler groups, so we go out on an adventure every day.

My Experience

After many years working in the Early Years and Nursery Management, then a career in Education Recruitment, I am thrilled to have opened my own setting. I specialise in early communication, and have previously run my own Baby Signing and Sensory Play classes. My Home is a positive, inclusive and stimulating environment- please feel free to find out more!
