My Experience

My aim is for the children to be safe secure & happy ,whilst learning through play to assist in happy confident and outgoing individuals.

I have cared for many children ranging from birth to 12yrs

All my work is in-line with the EYFS, observation books are kept on all early years children.along with daily diaries for babies.

I would not hesitate to recommend Tanya to any parent looking for good childcare. My 2 year old son has been with her since the beginning of January when we got back from a long trip abroad. We will be moving abroad soon, and will be gutted to have to say goodbye to Tanya, who has been very understanding and flexible throughout. Additionally, Tanya is a very open and honest person, which is essential in giving us (my husband and I) peace of mind while our son is with her.

Tanya is a very experienced and confident childminder, and keeps parents constantly informed on everything that is going on - regardless of bad or good! Toddlers do act up on occasion, and Tanya will discuss and work with me to agree tactics to help improve behaviour at hers and at home. My son looks forward to going to her house every morning, and since attending, his vocabulary, manners and knowledge has really grown. I just get so tickled every time I hear him burst into a new song which I hadn't heard him sing before!

A typical day at Tanya's is filled with activity and my son often comes home with art pieces, etc.. I also get frequent photo and video updates which bring an instant smile to my face when I'm busy working.

All I can say is that I'm very glad to have found her when I did, and am grateful for the wonderful care she has been giving my son.

Tanya looked after our son from 12 mths old and was great. I could go back to work at ease that he was in safe hands.

He enjoyed being there and playing with the other children and toys available. He loved going to the various groups and was always being taught something new.

Tanya has helped in his development as a happy, confident and well-mannered little boy. I would be happy to send no.2 to her if we have one.
