About Me

My name is Sophie, I am an Ofsted registered childminder and a mother of two.

I’m based in forest hill SE23 - just off Perry Rise.
Available Monday-Thursday

I live with my husband, my eight year old daughter and my three year old son in our family home in Forest Hill.

I am a very friendly, calm, patient, responsible and caring person and I aspire to ensure that all children and babies in my care are comfortable, happy, feel safe and secure so that they are able to grow and develop.

I completed my childminding tutor led course in April 2018, while on maternity leave from my 12 year position as Reception manager at Nunhead doctors surgery.

We have a lovely, warm, and welcoming home which is a home from home environment for all children and babies in my care.
Every child will have the help, support and encouragement that they need throughout every stage of their development.
They will be provided with the time, space and appropriate resources for them to learn and develop through play.

A few local parks that we go to are Mayo park, Wells park, Crystal Palace park, Beckenham place park, Dulwich park and Peckham park. We regularly go to Horniman museum and visit Surrey doc farm, Christmas tree farm and occasionally Godstone farm.

We grow fruits & vegetables at the back of our garden and the children love to be involved with the planting, watering and harvesting.

I provide healthy home made meals and healthy snacks. Occasionally the children will assist me with the preparations for meals and will also bake with me.

Myself and my husband both hold current DBS certificates.
Please see below for list of my qualifications and certificates held.

I hold a clean, full uk driving licence.
And drive a seven seater car.

If you have any queries or would like to arrange a visit, please do not hesitate to contact me.
