About Me

Hello we are Ellen and Simon a couple working together as registered childminders focussed on delivering high quality childcare. We offer a fun and creative environment with large indoor and outdoor spaces and an all-weather area for children to explore, play and develop in a warm and welcoming family home. We have 5 children with the 2 youngest (16 and 12) still living at home. We invite parents and carers to contact us for more information or to arrange a visit.

My Experience

Ellen is a qualified primary school teacher with over ten years experience as a foundation stage teacher and coordinator. I also worked as a lecturer delivering early years courses at the University of Hull and East Riding College and I have experience working as an assessor - mentoring and visiting students in nursery work placements. I have also spent time as a preschool volunteer and keyworker looking after children aged 2 to 4.

Simon worked as a keyworker and then assistant manager over fifteen years in a preschool. My duties involved caring for and educating groups of children aged between 2 - 4, liaising with other care and support agencies and mentoring college and work experience students. As assistant and acting manager I had direct responsibility for all the preschool children and staff and was directly involved in their day to day and long term care and development.

Recently we have both been working as SEN carers for a child requiring 2 to 1 respite care and support.
