About Me

*Currently no space available*

A little bit about me. I am a qualified teacher and decided to become a childminder so that I can still work with children while also spending more time at home with my two children (aged 4 and 6)

I live in Orpington, close to a local park and playground. I have my own garden with lots of toys for the children to explore and enjoy (including a little tykes cottage, small climbing apparatus, swing, slides, trampoline and sand and water tables as well as some little tykes cars and a variety of different ride ons).

I also have a separate playroom with a range of toys and activities for the children to enjoy, including messy play, small world, musical instruments, Puzzles, dressing up, and toot toot etc

I enjoy taking the children out for the day to local parks and farms and currently have an annual membership to Godstone farm to which I visit regularly. Other places I like to visit are my local park, Greenwich Park, and swanley park as well as local soft plays. I also go to a baby and toddler group once a week.

If you are looking for childcare please get in contact with any questions

Kind regards,

Lisa is the best childminder we ever had!
My son attended her setting for a few months until sadly we had to move out the Orpington area.
Whilst in her care, my son enjoyed countless days of fun activities and days out. He had done numerous arts and crafts and developed a special bond with Lisa and her family.
Lisa’s children are adorable and very caring. Emily, her daughter, used to look out for my son and she became like a sister to him.

Lisa was also very flexible and understanding of my situation and it was so reassuring to know that she can accomodate us whatever the situation. E.g. in lockdown (key workers) / furlough scheme / half term cover etc

Lastly, I never felt like my son was looked after by a ‘childminder’ but rather by a family member.

Lisa, you are so special! And we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for Edi! You have a special place in our hearts xx

Lisa has been very reliable looking after my little one. She always arrives early to pick up. She has been very accommodating with our needs. She updated me with my daughter’s activities with her and also sends me photos which are fantastic. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a childminder.

Lisa has taken care of my son during some holidays, half term or sometimes weekends. She is a lovely person, very warm and experienced with children. Her home is a lovely setting, full of toys and her children are very welcoming and enjoy playing with other children, so my son really likes going there.
She is great at providing information during the day too. It is always difficult to leave your child for childcare, but I feel very comfortable leaving my son with her. It is a happy and safe environment and I can highly recommend her.

Lisa has looked after my daughter since I started back at work full time and I couldn’t be happier with my childcare choice. She is kind, caring and very flexible meaning I have one less worry as a full time working, single Mum. She uses her previous teaching experience to plan fun and educational activities for the children both at home and out and about. My daughter loves going on trips to the farm, softplay or the park on a weekly basis and it’s great to know that she’s being given these important learning opportunities in such a comfortable, family setting rather than in a structured nursery. I feel very happy leaving my daughter with Lisa each morning and seeing how happy she is to be there and am very confident with the choice of childcare I have made.

Lisa does a wonderful job with my daughter, and this is proven by how well my daughter likes and interacts with her. She enjoys her time there and spending time with her children. She plans different activities for the children whilst they are in her care, including taking the children out and about. She is flexible and always works around the children's needs and I'm confident my daughter is in safe, caring hands.
