About Me

Hello, my name is Catherine and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder based in Linthorpe, Middlesbrough. I've been registered with Ofsted since 2015. I live with my partner Craig who is also registered as my assistant on a part time basis and we have 2 daughters.

- Conveniently located.

- 1 mile away from Teesside University (about a 15 minute walk) and 1.5 miles away from James Cook Hospital (about a 25 minute walk)

- Easy access to the A66 and the A19

Term Time Only contracts available as well as all year round.

The setting provides childcare and education following the Early Years Statutory Framework, in a home from home nurturing environment. Being a smaller setting means your child will get more 1 on 1 time and learning opportunities are highly personalised according to your child's interests and self choice.

I follow The Curiosity Approach pedagogy whereby children explore authentic real items and open ended resources age and stage appropriate, sparking awe and wonder and curiosity and its very much child centred. I also follow In the Moment planning with teachable moments and follow the seasons to teach children how to care for their environment and explore all that nature can offer. I look at children's interests and work the environment to suit so that they feel happy and engaged, which leads to great learning opportunities.

We have a garden with artificial grass, lots of large scale construction resources, a sandpit, a mud kitchen, playdough station and lots more for your child to have fun with. We also undertake outings to the local parks, museums, woodlands etc.

Please enquire by email for any questions which may not be answered here. Thank you :)

My Fees

  • Childminding from £4.00 per hour
  • Babysitting from £8.00 per hour

Please enquire as it depends on if you require Term Time Only/All Year Round/One day per week care.

I do not charge for my holidays or mine or my children's illness where I may not be available to work, however full fees apply for parents holidays/your childs illness as the space is still available and will be kept for your child's return. Fees still apply where a public/bank holiday lands on a day when I would normally have your child but I do not work them.

I accept 2 year old government funding and 15/30 hours 3/4 year old government funding. I do not share funding with other settings and I do not offer nursery or school pick ups.
