My name is Natalie and I am a registered childminder in the Oughtrington area of Lymm.
I am a qualified teacher with a postgraduate certificate in Early Years Practice.
Our home is spacious, safe, clean and all child care takes place on the ground floor meaning it is easily accessible. There are dedicated cosy areas for rest, individual play and looking at books- we take regular trips to the library to make sure your child can choose their own little stash! We have a secure, leafy, shaded garden perfect for bug hunts, outdoor art and sand or water play. I provide lots of fun activities for children to learn through and we enjoy outings every single day, rain or shine. We live very close to a lovely park but also love to visit Dunham Massey, Tatton Park and local playgroups to make new friends.
By caring for just a few children at a time I can make sure your child gets the individual attention they need. I have three children of my own; a two year old and two who are much older.
I've been a working parent myself for a long time so understand that knowing your children are safe and happy is so important, as is finding a carer who is reliable, flexible and easy to talk to. I really look forward to meeting your family and seeing how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.
Because of my professional and personal experience I can provide the high quality learning and social aspect of nursery perfectly balanced with the warmth, freedom and individual attention of a childminder.
I began working in the early years sector 13 years ago. I earned a first class honour degree in Early Childhood Studies before achieving Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) whilst working as a senior practitioner leading a team in a local nursery.
I gained a postgraduate certificate in Early Years Practice before training to be a primary school teacher working in a local school. I decided to leave teaching to spend more time with my youngest son and thoroughly enjoy making every day a new adventure- it's certainly never dull being surrounded by inquisitive, enthusiastic little ones!

Natalie has and continues to be amazing with our little boy who she has cared for since 4-5 months old. He turns up on a morning with a huge smile as we knock on the door and leaves with that same smile! Daily pictures and a journal with all their daily adventures and healthy home cooked food as a parent is fantastic as you get to track your child's daily development when you can’t be with them. To deal with Natalie is very warm and accommodating to our busy schedules and fantastically nurturing in helping us raise our first little bubba, he absolutely adores her. We get to meet her little boy regularly who my son absolutely loves! With daily trips, learning and adventures amongst a few other children, our only child is growing up and learning with and from other little buddies. We couldn’t recommend Natalie enough and we would be lost without her! An absolute gem for us!
Natalie came to a weekend event I was organising to provide childcare in the creche and stepped in at the last minute to cover the second day of a two-day event. She was very easy to work with, arrived early, and established a rapport very quickly with all the children. I thoroughly recommend her.
