About Me

I am a 51 year old mum of three children (10,11,12). OFSTED says " This setting is OUTSTANDING" 2016.

My Experience

I have looked after children for over 14 years from 4months old to 14 years of age. I have also looked after twins and children with additional needs. I have a wealth of knowledge to help your child have fun and develop. I offer full time nursery education for 3 to 4 year olds which means we don't do trips to school throughout the day. We specialise in children under 5 years of age. The children are always busy and get to experience days outs to farms, fun centers, playgroups, museums etc.

My Qualifications

I have a degree in early years. We all have first aid and safeguarding training. Other training courses have been attended which you can see when you visit.

My Availability

One place available now and TWO PLACES will be available in September 2019 for children under 5 years of age. I work Monday to Friday and hours are 7.30 to 5.30. I have two mature assistants who work part time. Term time only contracts available.

Linda looked after my little girl Logan for 2 years until she went to school. I can't thank her enough for the amazing standard of care and attention she gave. Logan had a fantastic educational base to walk into school with. Being ahead of the game in loads of sections or her early learning due to Linda's amazing structure of learning.

I class both her and Vicky who works with her as family friends now and am still in touch with them. I trust her totally and would recommend any parent to choose Linda if you are looking for some one who will truly enrich your child's life.

Linda looked after my twins from 10 months of age till nearly 5 years. They are now off to school very well prepared for what lies ahead. This childcare setting is nothing short of amazing. The work, dedication and affection the team at Smiley faces provide is exceptional. Linda is a very supportive lady who has many years experience looking after children at all stages. I immediately felt comfortable leaving them and going to work as they were in such capable hands. My friends have commented that the care and nursery education the twins have received is far superior. This was always done in a fun, unique and imaginative ways to keep the twins engaged. One of my twins required extra support with social interactions etc, Linda ensured they received the extra care and attention needed and refered them to the appropriate outside agencies for help , which has really helped. This setting truly deserves its outstanding status.
