About Me

Hello everyone.

Holiday and short term places available to support return to work during COVID 19

I am John, fun and creative, male childminder working in Devizes

I provide a unique childcare environment for children from birth onwards.

I believe a child centred and play-based approach is the key to strong Early Years foundations. I encourage children’s natural curiosity to explore their world. Helping children grow in confidence as they learn new skills and enjoy gaining their next developmental milestones.

I have developed great relationships with the families I care for. Parents appreciate photos sent to them throughout the day of their children and updates about new things they have discovered.

I live on a quiet road, in Devizes, on Salisbury and Trowbridge side of town. The setting has a large outside space and walking distance of local parks, library and woodlands. We also have a family dog and chickens.

I have worked alongside my wife for almost 8 years and have recently completed my level 3 childcare training. I have now taken on the lead childcare role since Tori has moved into childcare training.
I have full and part time spaces available.

My Experience

Experience in newborn care and small babies
Experience in multiples
Experience in shy children and how to help build their confidence.
Experience with children with SEND and diverse needs
Experience with school-aged children
