About Me

I've been a professional registered childminder since 1990. Prior to this, I completed a textile design B A Hons degree and enjoy incorporating my artistic interests in my days with the children.
I live in a rural village with my caring and supportive husband. We have four gorgeous boys plus a variety of family pets including dogs. I love being involved in the community and currently run a toddler group and organise children's events.

My Experience

Over 30 years experience providing a homely stimulating environment for children aged 3months-5years offering individual attention and meeting children's specific needs. I provide healthy home cooked food from breakfast through to tea. I regularly adapt to the changing needs of individual babies sleeping and feeding patterns and children's personal preferences. I aim to offer flexible consistent childcare accommodating parents preferences in a friendly family setting.
I patiently encourage and nurture children in all learning,working with their family to help their child reach their full potential. I have often cared for children through to their teens serving many local schools.
I share with parents their child's learning and development on my secure childcare management system which records special personal milestones and photographs of their child's progress, in accordance with Early Learning Goals.
We all regularly go on fabulous outings to adventure places for example Living Rainforest, Blue reef Aquarium,Farm Parks, Marwell Wildlife Zoological Park, Hilliers Arboretum, Milestones Museum and take part in the local community at Toddler groups, music class,museums, library, play parks,ball pools, countryside walks, local events etc
Some areas of experience with Special Needs include
*Visual impairment
*Physically impaired
*Developmental delay
*Hearing problems
*I have continued to care for children who have more than one language at home and meet children's specific individual needs.
