About Me

My name is Liz and I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I am also a Qualified Primary Teacher and I taught for 20 years across the Early Years, Infants and Juniors. I live in Downend, close to Christ Church Infants and Juniors. I live with my husband in a lovely, cosy family home on North Street, with a large garden. The focus for my setting is learning through play and I offer a calm, nurturing environment for children who enjoy lots of outdoor exploring and a warm home environment. My setting allows little ones to flourish, gain confidence and succeed in their own unique ways. I offer engaging activities to develop growing minds with quality play experiences to build happy memories. I send parents daily updates and photos to keep you informed about your child’s day. I plan activities in the wider community as we are within walking distance of parks, woods, toddler groups and libraries. All meals are home made and nutritious. I also provide a before and after school club.

My Experience

Having previously been a Primary Teacher, I have an extensive and deep understanding of how children develop through fun and engaging opportunities for play. Additionally, I have extensive safeguarding and child protection knowledge.
