I have been childminding for over 6 years and on my last Ofsted inspection in April 2015 received an 'OUTSTANDING' rating.
I'm a strong believer in keeping children busy and learning about life in a safe yet interesting way. For me its all about thinking outside the box and making learning fun and creative.
Our days are spent discovering new and wondrous things, I believe children develop a better understanding and are generally happier when experiencing new things themselves in a safe and managed way which helps them build and improve confidence, independence and new skill sets. We do projects through the year including rearing butterflies, tadpoles to frogs and growing our own vegetables.
I have a spacious 3 bedroom house with an open plan downstairs area used for childminding which gives children the opportunity to free flow play and ensures they can see me and I them while we all play but if they want to play something else they can and are still supervised.
I have two daughters who are 9 and 7. Both girls attend school, they absolutely love the company of other children and are great social characters. Our latest addition is Buddy the Golden Retriever a very friendly well trained boy. He has achieved his Bronze certificate in the KC good citizen award and is well accustomed to being around children.
As a family we offer a warm, welcoming and clean home for your child to come, learn and grow.

Sharon has been looking after our daughter since our move to Kent a year ago. Our daughter absolutely loves being part of the family and playing with Sharon's children. Sharon provides a variety of foods and activities that keep her entertained and full which means she is smiling when we collect her. I was surprised when our daughter came home with a fire safety certificate but pleased to find out that Sharon had ensured the children did a fire practice in her house for safe evacuation- it's the little things like this which go to show she deserves her OFSTED rating and we realise how lucky we were in finding her!
