About Me

I'm Alice, and I'm a 41 year old trained teacher, registered with Ofsted as a childminder in the Harestock area of Winchester. I live with my enthusiastic and lively 3 year old daughter within walking distance of Harestock Primary School and close to the fantastic Bradley Road playground. We have a busy home and enjoy cooking, arts and crafts and gardening (all very messy and exploratory with a 3 year old!). We have a great little garden and try to be outside as much as possible and take pleasure in growing our own fruit and vegetables, going for muddy walks and generally making the most of the great outdoors. We love to take advantage of the great playgroups and activities that Winchester has to offer (although these are more limited at the moment), as well as trips to the library, zoo, water meadows, woods and farm.

My Experience

I am qualified teacher with a specialism in Early Years and have taught in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 in London and in Winchester over the last 12 years. I am passionate about learning through exploration and play and believe that children need plenty of time, conversation and varied and exciting experiences to develop their understanding of the world. I am excited to be embarking on a new career in which I can continue to use and develop my passion for children’s learning and development, whilst also being with my own daughter and sharing these experiences with her before she goes off to school. In London I was responsible for training new teachers in my area in phonics and early reading and have maintained an interest in this, so will always be happy to read with school age children and support them (or you!) with their early reading and writing, if the logistics with other children permit.

My Qualifications

Post Graduate Certificate in Education (with Early Years specialism)
Level 1/2 Safeguarding Training
Paediatric First Aid
Introduction to Childminding and the Early Years Foundation Stage
Food Hygiene Level 2

My Availability

My opening hours are 7.30 – 5.30pm Monday to Thursday all year round for children from 0 to 8. I am happy to take school age children during the holidays for full days, as long as ratios allow and with advance booking.

I am currently full, but I may be able to accommodate children for ad hoc holiday cover (charged at a full day rate of 8 hours minimum).

Alice is the envy of all my friends who have children. I don’t believe we could have been luckier to find her. I was incredibly anxious leaving our daughter (who was 7 months at the time and now almost 2) to return to my job commuting in London...but most days Lillie doesn’t want to leave and every morning is excited to go to Alice’s incredible set up in her beautiful home. Daily she amazes me with her creative and educational activities that our daughter loves and I truly believe her impact on Lillie has been wonderful. Alice is timely and professional and yet is caring and compassionate on all levels. I can’t recommend her enough and I will happily offer any further information!

I could not rate Alice high enough! I was so nervous leaving my son with a childminder for the first time. Alice was recommended to me through this group when I first moved here and I would never change. She is so amazing, energetic and caring with all of the children she looks after and very flexible and does her upmost to help out with ever changing circumstances! My son never wants to leave at the end of the day! Highly recommend this lovely lady. Please contact me if you want further details. X
