About Me

I live in the Eggbuckland area of Plymouth, 5 minutes from Marsh Mills with the Coypool park and ride, and on the border with Higher Compton. I have been married 40 years and have 3 grown up children, a teacher, doctor and a service improvement officer with a housing association.. I was a helper at my local Guide Unit for 25 years but now help with the younger Rainbow group. I enjoy walking, keep fit, swimming, reading and sewing.

I love looking after children, and take the children out daily to toddler/activity groups as well as visits to the aquarium and outings such as Dartmoor Zoo Park, parks, trips on the train and nature walks.

I feel that building up a good relationship with parents is very important and this enables me to offer support to them as well as their children when it is needed.

My Experience

I initially helped out at my children's Playgroup, becoming a Supervisor there before going on to childminding when my youngest was one year old . During my 30 years as a childminder I have looked after numerous children aged from three months to 12 years gaining experience in looking after children with epilepsy, asthma and autism as well as supporting both children and parents from forces families. With the experiences I have gained throughout this time I am able to support both parents and children through some of the trickier aspects of their development and fully support breastfeeding Mums.
I am able to take children with 3 and 4 year old nursery education funding like Pre-schools or Nurseries and received Outstanding in my last Ofsted inspection.

Level 4 Certificate in Early Years Practise and NVQ 3 in Early Years Care and Education, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Safeguarding and have undertaken numerous other childcare related training courses.
