About Me

** Vacancy on Fridays only for 0-5 years and a monday-friday before and after school space at Knaphill Lower school **

I am an Ofsted Registered, Quality Assured (by Surrey County Council), Network Childminder. I live in Knaphill, Woking . I am able to offer the Early Years Free Entitlement to 3 & 4 year olds and eligible 2 year olds.

I am rated as a GOOD provider by Ofsted with OUTSTANDING in several areas. I have completed the Surrey County Council Quality Assurance Award.

I offer a home from home environment with plenty of toys, books and activities in a fully equipped playroom and child friendly home. We attend various groups and activities on a daily basis (Toddler group, soft play, music & singing group and have just started a forest fun outdoor learning activity) We enjoy walks and play-times at the local parks. During school holidays we like like to venture further afield and enjoy trips to Virginia Water, Bocketts Farm, Alice Holt, Fishers Farm and day trips to the seaside or local splash pools. I work closely with a group of other childminders so there is always a large group of little people for your child to share adventures with.

I am reliable, flexible and enjoy a good relationship with all my children and their families. I have excellent references ... some of which can be seen below.

My Experience

Having used a child minder when my own children were young, I am well aware of the difficulties of juggling work and a young family. My aim has always been to be as flexible as possible in order to fully meet the needs of the children and their parents. I am a fully trained, experienced early years practitioner and offer a home from home care setting for your child.

Ever since we found Wendy, thanks to a friend, we did not need to look for anyone else for my son. My son has been with Wendy since he was barely a year old. Last four years have just flown by so smoothly with her around, that I couldn't have asked for more. I cannot appreciate and recommend her enough.
To count just some of the numerous qualities she has: extremely flexible with time and pick-up/drop arrangements, arranges exciting schedules for kids that kids look forward to, has a varied range of toys and entertainment activities for the kids at her place. She goes the extra mile to make sure the kids are happy and well cared for. Her energy around children is unmatched. My son is just so fond of her and it shows. I must say the admiration is mutual too :) She has played a pivotal role in so many minor as well as major achievements in my son's growing up journey from being a baby to a boy, including independent eating, toilet training, colours, numbers, alphabets, football, familiarity with pets, social interaction and above all his manners. I am proud and glad that he stayed in such a good company all this while. He learnt how to make friends not only with the kids at Wendy's place, but also with the kids at other Childminders in Wendy's network.
Leaving your child with someone who is as diligent and caring as you can think of, is all a parent can ask for. Regardless of where we live, we would continue with Wendy for the term holidays without a doubt, because being a mother, I know I cannot be more assured about his care if he is with Wendy.

Wendy is just brilliant. She is everything we hoped for in a childminder and more. Our son is so happy with her and he runs to the door each morning she comes to pick him up. She is reliable, flexible, lovely to deal with and amazing with kids.
Every day they are out and about and they attend a different activity every day of the week. Wendy is also part of a network of about 10 childminders who get together each week, which is great for both development and social skills. Our boy has come such a long way with her. He eats and sleeps well with her and she has clearly made a massive impact on both his development and language.
We tried different childcare before Wendy, including nurseries and can honestly say that none of them come close to the service or satisfaction we get with her. To be able to leave your son with somebody you completely trust the welfare of your child with is invaluable and we have never felt that Wendy has anything but our son's best interest at heart. She genuinely cares about him and we are over the moon that she has also agreed to look after our youngest when my maternity leave ends.
We cannot recommend Wendy highly enough. The way we see it, any child who is lucky enough to be looked after by her could not have a better start in life.

We came from India and was looking for a child minder for our 10 months baby boy one of my friend suggested me about Wendy.We are really thankful to her for the care and punctuality which she done for my baby.He had been a very happy little child and we could see that change in his personality from the day one.
Wendy is very flexible and she is very helpful I could go to work without any worry in my mind because i she use to take care of my baby in best way.

We have moved to some other place but i still miss her and the way she handle kids.

Wendy was the best childcare we ever had. she is warm, flexible, very accommodating and on top her rates are very competitive. My kids joined Wendy's house when my daughter was just over 2. She practically grew up in that house and she still consider her to be her second home. Thanks to her, Wendy is famous in our family all the way in New Delhi! My son and Wendy's son are of same age and they got along really well. She was very flexible with his after school clubs and also made sure the homework is finished on time.

As a working mother, I always felt guilty about not spending time and taking kids out during their school holidays. But thanks to her I was confident that my kids will be happy and will be spending their holidays outdoors or activity at home, well planned in advance.
I was in tears when I got to know that Wendy won't be able to cover Knaphill school and therefore we need to make other arrangements for my children. Since then we are unable to find a childcare as good as her. My children had spend the best 5 year of childcare with Wendy.

My children really miss her and I would highly recommend her to whoever is looking for a childminder.

Wendy looked after my 2 children a few years ago now and she was brilliant they loved going to her house and always had a great time. I would always pick up happy tired babies and they never hesitated in going to Wendys and her own children were really friendly. Her care was outstanding and if she had the availability i would certainly be calling on her now with my younger two.
