About Me


Hello, my name is Tara and I am a registered childminder. I have spaces available. I also offer pick/drop for Loughton Manor First school.
I work with an assistant who is also DBS enhanced cleared and First Aid Certified.

Our house is a detached house situated in Loughton with good access links to the A5 and 10 mins walk to CMK station. I live with my husband and we have two daughters and a son.

We have a dedicated playroom, a separate room for little ones to sleep and a large enclosed, secure garden, offering free flow outdoor play. Our garden is full of equipment and toys, which is always open to the children. I am within walking distance of parks & lakes. We love to go for walks & enjoy duck feeding .

We have no pets and we are non-smokers.

I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in my setting which is a statutory framework that sets the standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to five. We do both free play and structured activities indoor and outdoor.

I aim to provide a wide range of opportunities in the form of interactive, fun and challenging activities to enable children of all backgrounds and abilities to develop and learn through play in a caring, supportive and happy homely environment.

My Experience

I feel I have a good understanding about what parents and carers go through when leaving their children in care, as I myself was once in this position. Hopefully this means that I can make the experience of leaving your little ones as painless as possible. I also understand the importance to find the right childcare and the pressure placed on working parents and I therefore aim to be as flexible and reliable as I can.

I recognise the importance of parental involvement in a child’s early years and look forward to working together as a team to meet your child(ren)’s full potential. I share pictures each day with the parents, keeping them up to date with their child settling and development.

My kitchen is registered with the Environmental Health Service, Milton Keynes Council and we follow Safer Food Better Business for Childminders. Fresh meals are prepared for the kids and is included in the day rate. I am Level 2 Food Hygiene Qualified and follow Healthy Start.

If you have any question/s or would like to book a visit please reach me.

We were so lucky to have Tara as my daughters child minder. My daughter has been going to Tara from as little as 1 years and a few months old and has developed some really good key skills. She is now a strong communicator and far more confident. Tara is an amazing child minder and we’re very sad that as we have left the town we no longer will be able to use Tara’s childminding service. Tara has a very warm, caring and kind personality and is brilliant with kids, this was clearly visible from my first visit to Tara’s house and my daughter Naia got comfortable with her instantly. Tara prepared delicious and nutritious meals and my daughter has always looked forward to eating there. Tara has a big house full of toys, learning books and accessories and has also taken my daughter on many adventures out and about to explore which has kept her entertained and helped with her cognitive development. Tara has always been flexible and worked around my needs therefore would highly recommend to all parents.

My son started going to Tara's childcare when he was 1.5yrs old. My daughter goes sometimes during school holidays too.
My son has learnt a lot of things there. He started to say more words, sing and dance a lot, all thanks to Tara.
Not only taking care of my son but Tara also communicates with me how we can help at home with his learning & development. Kids always have choices to play and learn, I also like when my son brings back his craft pieces. Tara's activities look fun!! She also do nice parties on some events like Christmas, halloween, etc...my kids enjoyed it a lot.

I am not an english speaker but Tara is so calm and always gives me enough time to explain.
Her house is clean and she provides a healthy food which kids love.
Tara is fun, helpful and kind so I feel comfortable sending my kids.
I really recommend her 😆
