About Me

Searching for childcare can feel a lot like a full time job. Matching your needs to the childminders availability can seem like a never ending task.

When looking for childcare for my own children I have needed flexibility and reliability which was not available to me. This has now become the foundation of my service. I am offering a setting that not only has standard hours available but also


Overnight Care

Unsociable Hours

Bank Holidays

Drop in

A mother living in Gravesend since 2015. I am enthusiastic about the outdoors and will often be found adventuring with the children outside, whatever the weather. I strongly believe in creating opportunities for children to develop in everyday situations such as practicing independence at meal times or taking responsibility for choosing the activity for the day. I offer a safe and educational space that supports children and young people to explore their own ideas and develop as people.

Contact me to find out how I can meet your needs.

My Experience
