I was born and raised in the West Midlands.I live with my husband. We have raised five children, all of whom are now adults living away from home. We have two granddaughters and two grandsons.
I enjoy working as a live out nanny/babysitter which enables me to engage with children in child-centred activities in their own familiar environment. I have been a childminder who began in December 2011, and my career in childcare began in 1978 when I qualified as an NNEB and previously I have worked in Day Nurseries working my way up from nursery officer to nursery manager and regional childcare manager. I have raised five children of my own, the youngest is now in her in university .I have trained and worked in the field of Education social work and as a Childcare Inspector of under under eights provision.
I adore children and have a lot of experience of caring for children from all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
Children are offered a broad range of activities in line the EYFS requirements and support children's individual learning and development needs by working closely with parents.
Children I have cared for enjoy regular outings to local children's centre activities and we have regular outings to local parks and playgrounds, city farms and open spaces.
I qualified as a NNEB trained nursery nurse in 1978 and followed this up with special care baby training and gained a qualification and worked for 18mths on a neo-natal unit.

That very sweet Abdullah 🙂
Amazing Nanny! My kids and I tare love her! So punctual, honest and very kind. I’m so glad she looked after my kids. She saved my life even on last minutes, when I had to go to work. Will highly recommend her. 😍
I am writing to recommend Claire as a nanny or childminder. Claire was our first ever childminder for our daughter and son when our daughter was barely 5 months old and our son was 5 years at the time.
Being full time parents leaving a young baby at home was quite daunting as you can imagine but the love and support Claire gave to us during that time made it easy for us to work , knowing that our children were in good hands. She was responsible for providing them with breakfast each day and dropping my son and picking him up from school. While caring for them she was respectful about our family traditions and most times will adapt my son's lunch to a dish he was used to having at home.
Claire is very knowledgeable about the statutory Early Years Provisions and adapts her practice to the needs of every child she cares for. Claire is a tremendously patient person who works alongside the parents, which was helpful to us as our boisterous son struggled with following instructions at the time.
She took the time needed to read with or hear my son read every day and assisted him with homework which made our time with our kids in the evening more enjoyable for other family activities.
Claire had an immeasurable positive impact in my family as at that time , my husband and I had no family support network around us in London and she acted more like a Nan to our kids, which made our children to see her as family rather than a childminder.
I desperately wanted my baby at the time to partake in certain baby -friendly activities which were never available during the weekends but Brenda tried her best to ensure my daughter didn't miss out. From 6 months old she took our baby to mother-and-child swimming classes, which helped build water confidence for our daughter who now thoroughly enjoys swimming.
Claire is very attentive and meticulous to detail. I saw that in the “home contact” book she designed and self- introduced to keep my husband and I updated with things. As her child minding practice expanded, she employed an assistant and changed the “home contact” book to an online system which gave us access via our mobile phones or a desktop with pictures of our kids.
As a family, we've learnt extremely well from Claire's supportive and professional practice and some of the activities she did with our kids, like her famous summer farm trips and seaside trips have now become a tradition for our kids. As our daughter grew older (almost 2 years old) I changed jobs and had a longer commute to work so i decided to change my son's school as well. We decided to move the baby as well to a nursery closer to work as unfortunately it was impossible to leave her with Claire as we travelled to work quite early.
Once again I would very much recommended Claire to anyone looking for a qualified quality (Early Years professional) nanny or Minder for their family. She is caring, very supportive, uses her initiative and loves working with children.

Many thanks Frida for your Kind words.
Claire looked after 3 of my children over a 3 year period. She was a childminder to our 2 boys before we employed her as our Nanny from 2015-2016. Claire was always so professional in her conduct - she gave very thorough feedback on the day and would endeavour to give our children a variety of learning opportunities and experiences in a variety of settings. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience in childcare from bringing up her own children, as well the continuing professional development she has undertaken. Claire has so many positive attributes- she is reliable, punctual, hard working and empathetic. She has a lot of patience which was invaluable when caring for one of our children,who has social communication difficulties. I never worried about the children in Claire's care, which enabled me to fully focus on work. She was a real asset to our family and we all miss her.

Thanks so much Sonia. I do miss you guys too. You were amazing employers which made it a pleaure to be part of raising your adorable children
My son had been attending Claire’s child-minding settings for over two years, and it was fantastic environment for him to grow and learn. I can highly recommend Claire as a childcare provision prefessional. She not only has the thorough knowledge about Early Years development, but also the loving and caring attitude towards children. She always took into consideration my son’s likes and dislikes, be it toys, food, or habits and character traits, and worked around them to bring the best out of him. When he started talking, Claire helped him with the letters he struggled with. The days were organised, the reports were detailed. I knew what they did, what he ate, even how many time he used the toilet. It all helped me immensely to be relaxed returning to work, knowing not only he is well looked after, but also in the environment that benefits him so much. They regularly took the trips to the local children’s centres, libraries and parks, as well as the city farms, museums and other places of interest to children. They have been to the seaside and done fruit picking in the summer. I shall remember the years at Little Swallow’s childminder settings fondly, and so glad that I have so many pictures left as memories from it!
