I have been a childminder since 1989 and can offer your child a home from home where I provide safe and loving child care.
I have 4 children of my own; 2 grown up sons, 1 daughter at uni and my youngest daughter is in secondary school. My husband and I also have 2 beautiful grandchildren:)
I have a playroom with a variety of toys and books and a garden with some play equipment and a playhouse. We own an African Land snail called Frederick and a Syrian hamster called Ten.
I live near Brocklebank Health Centre and a 10 minute walk from Earlsfield Station and Southside shopping centre. Bus route: 44 & 270.

Penny has been child-minding our son for the past year. We really could not have found a more loving childminder for our baby when he started with her at 8 Months old.

Penny is caring, lovely and extremely reliable. She has always treated our son like her own and he absolutely adores her, having a big smile every morning when we knock at her door and jumping in her arms for cuddles. For us, the biggest thing is that Penny gave our son a family life, not only child care, this made me feel so well and reassured because he has been truly happy with her.

All the children I have seen with Penny seem happy and well-behaved. Whatever the weather, Penny takes the kids out to playgroups or the park. I have seen Louis progress SO much during his time with Penny. Penny is also cooking every meal and having dinner with her own family and all the kids at the same time, which is amazing for them.

The only reason we are leaving Penny is that we have moved far away from Wandsworth and can no longer come to her every morning. It was a very difficult decision and it makes us really sad to leave as we have already pictured her taking care of our future babies for the years to come, I am forever grateful for everything she and her amazing family did for us and our son and I strongly recommend her. I know she will miss Louis and we will miss her a lot!

Leaving your child with someone for the first time is very daunting, Penny made the experience much easier. From the very first meeting in Penny’s kitchen I was immediately taken with her warmth and transparency, she is a lovely lady who wears her heart on her sleeve and is very honest in her approach. Leaving your child with Penny, is not like leaving your child with a single childminder, your child becomes a part of their loving family. Going back to work knowing that my son would be cared for as if he were one of her own makes my day a whole lot brighter. I look forward to picking him up at the end of the day and seeing her daughters (one of whom has babysat for us) and her husband, whom always have a smile on their faces and something fun to say. The house is full of love and fun energy and I wish we were able to have them in my sons life for a whole lot longer, we are unfortunately moving away. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Penny and wish we could take her with us.

Mummikins has been minding our two children (girl since Oct 2008 and girl since Oct 2010) and she is an excellent childminder. We are moving out of Wandsworth and are very sorry that we will not be able to continue having her look after our children. Our children really enjoy going to her house, it truly is a home away from home. Both girls are happy there and enjoy doing a wide range of arts and crafts there as well as going to local play groups.

As two busy working parents, we have no hesitations at all in recomminding Mummkins as an excellent child minder.
