My Experience

I have had experience as a childminder in seaham since 2003, during these years i have cared for a variety of different age groups ranging from birth onwards. All the children which i care for are classed as individuals and i like to work alongside parents to make sure the best possible care is given to each child, i pride myself with care for babies and young children , by making sure that they are safe and secure within and outside my home environment , and i strive to help each child develop to the best of their ability. I also take younger children to playgroups on a daily basis , which I feel helps children socialise and become independent within different settings .
I give children of all age groups the attention and care they deserve ,and I have a strong bond with each and everyone of them within my care.
You can find reviews from parents whose children have attended my setting in the past and who still use my setting within this profile page .

My daughter has been going to Teri since she was 5 months old. I was very apprehensive of leaving such a young baby full time. Teri made me feel completely at ease and my daughter loves going everyday. She gets to interact with a range of children everyday. Her overall development is fantastic because of the range of playgroups and activities provided. My daughter is a fussy eater and Teri has been very patient and understanding providing my daiughter with a range of foods at meal times. Teri has built such a close relationship with myself, partner and daughter and I trust her.I could not recommend her enough.

My daughter has been with terri for at least 5 months now and I only wish she was there 5 days a week not 3! Hannah had previously attended a local nursery and was really distressed when i dropped her off and when i picked her up but now I can't get her to leave Terri! (sometimes upsetting for me but in a fantastic way!). I love that terri has become a second mum to my little girl and that she loves her dearly. She makes sure she has good nutritious meals, plays with her, sings songs with her, takes her out and has also brought her on developmentally. I trust my daughters judgement above anything and I would recommend Terri to anyone who want to feel totally at ease with leaving their little one with someone else while they are at work. Not only does my daughter love her, she loves the rest of her family too, including the other children she looks after. Since finding her, I wouldn't let any other professional look after my daughter. We would be lost without you xxx

Teri is a really great childminder. My 3 year old son has been going to Teri for nearly 3 years now and I have no hesitation in continuing with this arrangement for my other son when I return to work after maternity leave. For my children Teri offers a home away from home. It's great that Teri takes the children on outings and to playgroups as this really helps with their social, physical and emotional development. Teri's experience of raising her own children has also proved to be invaluable, providing advice and guidance on all sort of issues from teething to potty training. Teri is very approachable and reliable which is invaluable to a working mum. I would not hesitate to recommend Teri's services as a childminder to other parents.

My 4 year old daughter has been with Teri for nearly 3 years now following a recommendation from a friend and i have been 100% happy with her throughout that time. My daugther absolutely loves going every day and the different activities and outings that take place there. From playgroups to picnics and parks, the children are stimulated and i saw a real difference in Livvies development very quickly after starting her. Its always traumatic for working parents to leave their children and go back to work but i can honestly say that Teri makes it a painless process and very quickly both parent and child are settled into a daily routine. She really brought my naturally clingy daughter out of her shell and is always there to offer guidance or support if we need it. She is approachable, never bothering about the amount of panic-stricken phonecalls she receives and she clearly adores the children she looks after. I would recommend her services without hesitation and strongly believe that she is worth her wieght in gold.
