About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder graded as Outstanding in my last inspection. I provide a safe homely environment where children can learn and achieve whilst most importantly having fun. I offer varied activities including creative play, messy play and free play, the children in my care attend local toddler groups, wriggly readers at the local library, outings to parks, farms and too many other places to list. I aim to take the children outdoors every day and we visit forests and other natural environments at least twice a week. I have an annual membership to Twycross zoo, Conkers and a National Trust membership which I take full advantage of to enhance the children's learning. I am a positive role model teaching the children to respect and value both the setting and the people in it. I work in partnership with families to ensure that I meet the needs of both yourself and your child. I believe that children will only reach their full potential when they are interested and having fun and this is my aim for every child in my care
