About Me

I am an Ofsted registered Childminder living in Southchurch, very close to Southchurch library and a 10 minute walk to Southend East Station. I live with my partner, 9 year old daughter and cat in a spacious house with a garden.

I am passionate aboout what I do and aim to make my childcare provision as much of a loving home-from-home environment as I can. I have ten years of experience supporting children in school and have gained a great deal of experience in caring for, stimulating and developing children's interests and skills.

I have a range of toys and activities for children and we also spend a lot of time outdoors going for walks and visiting the parks, local groups and library. I also provide healthy meals and snacks.

Prior to becomming a childminder myself I used childminding services and so I am well aware of the concerns and pressures felt by working parents. My aim is to be as approachable and flexible as I can.

Overnight and weekend care also available Please call or text to find out available.

Very very professional , on top flexible and very understanding of delicate situation for our child, Marcia gives us a peace if mind when our child is in her care . She provides quality of care and attention both to the child and family It's with pleasure I would recommend Marcia to a potential family .

Marcia looked after my son, Ethyn (2). Ethyn was always excited to go to Marcia's house! I was always impressed with the activities she did with him - drawing, stickers, water play, baking...just to name a few! Marcia would update me on a daily basis with regards to how my son had been during the day, what he ate, how he slept and interacted with others. I was impressed with her professionalism and how accomodating she was. Her house felt like a home and Ethyn would get lots of affection from her. I would most definately recommend Marcia!

My daughter went to Marcia for sometime and loved everyday, the environment at her home is welcoming and secure, Mia felt right at home! Marcia is reliable and honest and always gives you a detailed day so you know everything your child has done and achieved! Any parent would be lucky to have Marcia have their child in her care.
