Hi, My name is Linda, I am a registered full time childminder based in Kidbrooke, Blackheath /shootershill area, South east London. Am basically within the boundaries of those 3 areas mentioned, check the post code for exact location. I have 3 lovely children of age 13 years old, 8 years and 3 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 garden where the children in my care will be based.
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.
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.

Our daughter attends Linda's setting for almost 2.5 years now and we couldn't find a better childcare provider than her! Our daughter is always very happy there and always very excited in the morning when she knows she goes to auntie Linda! Yesterday she played at home with her phone toy and she acted like she talks with auntie Linda hehe.

The locations is great and Linda is very flexible regarding tonthe hours and time slots. And that thing.. is yoir child has birthday being at Linda's setting I can assure you she or he will have one of the best day of her his life!!!!😊😊😊😊😚
I would highly recommend Linda as she has been fantastic with my 5 year old. Her setting is like home away from home and my boy doesn't miss being away from me or home during the summer holidays. Linda has been super flexible with my childcare requests and been accommodating whenever possible. She is organised and has a range of activities to offer children both educational and transferable activities to help with child development. Every single day - weather permitting my boy has been out and about enjoying the summer holidays with Linda and other children at the setting. I am happy to recommend Linda to other parents as I continue to use her services for the future.
