About Me

Married with 17 year old twins. We have one cat who adores children. Live close to Whitley Bay town Centre as well as Metro/Bus services. I offer a warm, loving and safe environment where children can learn, build confidence, self-esteem but most of all have fun.

My aims are to create in my setting an environment where children are encouraged to develop a positive self image regardless of race, language, religion, culture or home background, a safe environment in which children can learn and develop at their on pace. Enjoy play experiences that cover the six areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Enable children to build self confidence and independence. Work in partnership with parents to give continuity of care and share information.

My Experience

I have 17 years of experience bringing up two happy and lively children of my own and have now been childminding for 9 years. For a short time I required a childminder while I went back to work when my twins were small so I know how important it is to find the right person to care for your children.

I am registered with Ofsted and and at my last ofsetd inspection I was graded as Good
