About Me

I am a mum of two young children, married and have a pet Dalmatian. I have recently registered as a childminder and offer a high quality childcare service to the local families of Pontefract. I am based in the New Hall estate close to Nevison and Monkhill and can provide before and after school care for children attending Orchard Head School. I love nature and the outdoors, exploring and being creative through arts, crafts and baking. I promote exploration and creativity within my setting and allow children the freedom to take learning into their own hands and to develop their own interests.

My Experience

I am a qualified primary school teacher with over 10 years experience working within the Wakefield authority and schools across the Yorkshire region. My skills mostly lie within Key Stage 1, however; I have worked in several early years settings during my career so have lots of experience of working with younger children. Being a mum myself I understand the needs of young children and I offer a calm, caring and safe yet fun environment to help every child develop.

My Qualifications

I am a recently registered childminder and I’m fully qualified for the role. I have certification of all my training and registration which can be seen on request.

My Availability

I am available weekdays, from 8:00am-6:00pm for 47 weeks of the year.
