About Me

OFSTED registered and Pediatrics first aid qualified, DBS checked, Food business registered. I also have 2 staff members so we work closely together giving a great mix of hole from home but a mixed age range too allowing children to stretch and learn in a challenging but safe loving environment

I am a childminder based in Wantage with limited spaces available. Having been a primary school teacher previously and being a mum of three myself- I have experience working with children from birth to twelve years.

I aim to provide activities that are appropriate to the age and the stage of the individual child's development. Through these activities I will ensure your child first and foremost has fun and whilst having fun is also learning and developing their skills and knowledge.

I pride myself on providing a home away from home environment where the children are happy, comfortable and important. Each child is an individual with differing needs which I believe we as a team should encourage and support in each and every day.

We range on the activities we do from free play to planned activities such as painting, play dough, role playing and fancy dress.. But also day/ half day trips out to get some fresh air but have fun too be that farmer gows, snakes and ladders, museums.. It all ranges month to month but its about having some fun and building excitement about it along the way...

Since September 2014 I have taken on an assistant (Ofsted registered) and have taken on an apprentice/Ofsted registered apprentice from September 2015.. This has been fantastic for the children and myself giving us extra adults to join in our day to day activities and help with widening the experience and activities available each day ;)
