About Me

Hi I am Sally,

I have been a childminder in Ross on Wye since 2000.

I have been married to Dave since 1995 and we have two Older teenage children. Everyone in my house has been CRB/DBS Checked.

My 19yr old son is registered as my occasional assistant to lend a hand when needed during the school holidays. My husband also works from home and is in the process registering as my assistant.

I have two horses. My minded children are given the experience of meeting the horse with the parents permission, they love to give carrots and apples to them. The children are not left unattended while we are visiting the horses.

We also have 2 cats and are very much part of the family. Badger cat likes to live upstairs as she is an older cat and likes to sleep. Pixie loves to be with everyone, but does like her own space. She will happily find a warm spot in the play room and happily sleep while the children play around her. The cats are never left alone with the children and they all learn to respect their needs. I remove the cats if they do become in the way.

My setting is situated near a main dual carriageway, giving you access to the M50, Monmouth, Wales and Hereford.

My Experience

I have been an Ofsted Registered Childminding since June 2000.

I have cared for a number of children in those years ranging from 0 months to 16 years.

I care for young babies and children, all day, before and after school and all year round.

I currently collect and drop off at Brampton Abbots Primary.

Other Schools, Nursery and playschool settings within Ross on Wye will be considered.

All children are given the opportunities to participate in local events, groups and trips to parks, farms and other childminders homes, cinemas etc.

I believe children develop and learn better in a smaller group and in a home-based environment. All children are given lots of opportunities to develop and grow in their own time, with some gentle encouragement.

I have my own Public Liability Insurance, and Business Class 3 use of my vehicle.
