About Me

Hi, My name is Linda, I am a registered full time childminder based in Blackheath off shootershill road, South east London.I have 3 lovely children of age 13 years old, 8 years and 4 years old.

I do not have any pets. I do not smoke so my home is smoke free.

I made the decision to start up my own business after my youngest son was born, I have researched all aspects of child care including the EYFS and I am qualified in Level 3 Award in Preparing to Work in Home-based Childcare (HBCA)

I have also gained my first aid certificate in pediatric first aid along side an additional course in safeguarding. (Safeguarding of Children)

My true passion is child development and I have enrolled in extra courses to gain a better understanding of this subject .

I run my business from my family home, there is a designated play room and a big garden with lots of resources where the children in my care do their activities.

The environment I provide will be very much focused on developing the children in line with the EYFS. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.We do visit local parks, libraries, fun parks and forest schools (fee might be required for this service)

My Experience

Trained Healthcare assistant worked in both private & NHS hospitals where i worked in children wards for over 10 years.Trained childminder working with children of all ages ensuring that all their level of learning and development is attained at every stage of their development. And yes as a mother of 3kids too i have gain lots of practical experience in meeting their daily needs both their educational needs ranging from assisting them in completing their homework and studying.It has taught me alot about teaching and patience that is required to ensure the target is achieved.

I rang Linda when my childcare fell through last minute. My lil one loved her and enjoyed every moment he spent with her. She kept me updated with his activities and also sent loads of pictures. I could not recommend her enough. I was very comfortable leaving him with her and I didn't worry at all.

Linda is a kind, thoughtful, hard working lady, who always puts the needs of the child first. She is diligent in taking on instruction from parents about a child's specific needs and schedule etc, and we have never had any problems. She goes above and beyond to make your child happy as they play and learn throughout the day. Linda has shown a unique care and love for our family that I will miss dearly as we move away in a couple of months. I would highly recommend trying Linda as your childminder!

Highly recommend Linda, I met her in the summer whilst trying to find emergency childcare for my two sons and thankfully she was able to help, I’m so glad I met her and my boys loved going to auntie Linda’s house. She is always cheerful and great with the kids and been a great help to me when needed. My boys were so pleased to see her again this week, I have no doubt in recommending her x

My son has been here since he was one. I was anxious at first being a first time mum but He loves it and he’s thriving. She’s been so helpful even recommending good nurseries. I would 100 percent recommend.
