About Me

My name is Gill l am CRB checked. I have 2 children of my own Ryan is 23 years old and is DBS checked and Jessica is 15 years old. I have been a home based child-minder for about 16 years. We live in Chells in Steveange and we have a cat called lucky.

I am insured with and a member of Pacey; I am Ofsted registered and follow The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. which means a record of this is maintained for the children I care for. My last ofsted inspection I was graded good which was on the 12th November 2018. l also co mind with another Childminder called Lisa.

My Experience

I have a calm and positive approach towards childcare. I find that having a routine helps children to feel relaxed and confident, but where children are concerned, this does not always go to plan so I feel I am flexible and adaptable.

Although it's essential for children to have guidance from adults, I think it is important for them to be able to express their own opinions and interests, and where appropriate, I encourage this by allowing them to choose activities etc or day trips where possible.

my aim is to provide a Safe, Clean, Fun, Stimulating and Happy Home from Home. I aim to provide fun and play through various activities to help children reach their full development potential. I also work closely with parents/guardians to ensure that your child feels comfortable and valued as an indvidual.

My Qualifications

I have my paediatrics first aid certificate and have the relevant safeguarding qualifications required which are all on display,I also have my NVQ level 3 in childcare and early years and development. I have attended many training courses over the years I've been a childminder and I continue to attend different courses for continual professional development, when they are available.

I met gill at the school my other son went to..
Very lovely lady.. got to know her through my pregnancy every morning at the school
I one day asked gill if she would have my little boy when I have him and go back to work.. she said of course..
My son went to gill when he was 9 months old and he is now nearly three, they have such a Great bond and Taylor feels very close and safe with gill he always talks about her at home telling me what stuff they did and if they went in the cars etc, we have never had a problem when I’ve dropped Taylor to gills he has always been 100% happy and confident going there and leaving there...
She very good and spot on woth learning|cleanness|safety
My son is very clever and talks a lot and is polite (has he moments) but I notice a difference in him when he is with gill he is well mannered and treated reasonably.
I would recommend gill 100% and sadly gutted as we are now leaving with in the next few months and we both will miss her as we hav a good friendship with her and her children and I will miss picking Taylor up and having mummy chats and seeing the other parents
I highly recommend:)

Thank you Rachel for the great review, this was much appreciated, always welcome to come back for a visit. regards Gill

My daughter went to Gill since she was 8 months old and now she is 4 and loves the setting too much . Gill and Tracey have been brilliant support and really become part of the family as my daughter is spending a lot of time with them .
Gill is trustworthy , reliable and fun and i really could not imagine my life without her .

My 5 month old baby boy started with Gill after a unsuccessful few days at nursery. Gill was available straight away for me which was a relief for me. I'm pleased to say my baby boy settled on day 1 and so content. it's reassuring to know that Gill and Tracey provide care just like I would at home myself. I'm so pleased I found you thank you so much

My daughter has been with Gill since July 2014 and the progression my daughter has made is amazing. This has come through the activities and learning Gill does with her. She goes above and beyond as a Childminder, and me, her father and Teagan are lucky to have Gill, she is amazing. She offers a lovely, safe and comfortable environment.
