About Me

Welcome to Finchley Childminders - A qualified teacher led childminding setting.

Are you looking for quality childcare? Would you like your child to have meaningful experiences and learn though play? I am an Ofsted registered childminder with over 25 years of teaching experience. I also work with an assistant who also is an Early Years trained teacher. I love to spend time nurturing and developing children’s individual learning. I live in a newly refurbished house in North Finchley, which is situated close to Woodside Park tube station and West Finchley, making travelling to work for parents very advantageous. Also local buses can be taken nearby. I have a dedicated play and learning room in my house for the children to explore and learn though play. I have a garden that supports the Early Years curriculum which allows children to develop their creative and scientific knowledge. I enhance the Early Years Curriculum by taking the children on special outings, for example, London Zoo, local farms, local libraries, parks and drop in centres.I offer homemade cooked meals as part of my childminding package. A typical menu is available upon request. I will spend time developing you’re child's learning by observing them, finding out their interests and then planning appropriate activities for them. I am a member of Pacey and have public liability insurance through them.

My Experience

I have previously worked as a Primary School and Early Years teacher for 25 years. I have a BAHons degree in Textile Design and a PGCE in Early Years Education. My Early Years experience has ranged from class teaching which included observing, assessing and teaching young children and working as a Senior Leader. My role included overseeing Early Years reading, writing and mathematics. I have a passion for Early Years and find young children both exciting and enjoyable to work with. In my teaching career I have had an excellent rapport with parents and other adults working in Early Years settings and will continue this professional standard.

My little girl loves Finchley childminders!! They provide a genuinely warm and welcoming home from home where my daughter is always so happy and content.
There are plenty of exiting toys and books for her to play with as well as learning activities.
The setting including the separate play room and garden are well equipped and absolutely spotless.
They also make regular visits to various parks, play groups and London zoo.
A good range of food and snacks are served, my daughter always enjoys her meals.
Finchley child minders are without a doubt a real find. They are professional, caring and always committed to the children and parents alike, absolutely highly recommend them. Thank you so much for everything!
