About Me

*Babysitting available*

Hi, my name is Caroline and I run Brown Bears Childminding from my home in Farnham (search Brown Bears Childminding for more information)

I'm a caring, reliable and committed Ofsted registered childminder who is NVQ level 3 qualified. I live with my husband David and we have one son who is 8 years old, a daughter who is 5 years old and another daughter who is 3 years old.

I provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment ensuring the individual needs of every child are met. I understand as a parent how hard it is to leave your child so I take the time to ensure you are totally comfortable with me and that your child feels fully settled and happy in my home. I always strive follow each child's usual routine so they have consistency in their care.

We attend a number of local groups and activities and also regularly visit parks, go on walks and and play in the garden. I plan our days to ensure there are a wide range of fun activities which are always tailored to each child's stage of leaning and their individual needs. Activities include messy play such as painting, creating collages, printing, water and sand play. We also spend time doing lots of role play, reading, singing, cooking, construction and playing a wide variety of games.

All the meals I provide are home cooked to ensure they are healthy and nutritious. I create meal plans so that the children always have a balanced diet.

Working with parents is important so I always provide lots of information such as a daily diary and a learning journey which details the individual child's development. I operate an open door policy and always welcome parents into my home at anytime.

I have lots of references available on request and you're always welcome for a visit. More information is available on my website. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

My Experience

I've been caring for children for over ten years and most recently I've been childminding for the last six years. I've previously worked as a nanny for two families and in a nursery. I have experience of working with newborns right up to older children plus children with special needs.

My Qualifications

I'm NNEB qualified which is a full time two year course and is equivalent to the current NVQ level 3. I also have current certificates for paediatric first aid and food hygiene.

My Availability

Spaces available from January 2020. I also collect from All Saints school and South Farnham Juniors.

Below are the latest reviews for BrownBea. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

I can't recommend Caroline highly enough.

She has been caring for my children for over two years and we couldn't be happier with the care she offers.

The kids have loads of fun, often doing the messy or muddy things that I don't get round to at home but they love. They also enjoy the wonderful mix of toys for boys and girls of all ages. There is never a dull moment.

Caroline's vast experience of childcare shows through in the way she interacts with the kids adapting to their individual personalities, likes and dislikes and also enables her to ensure that the kids are safe as well as happy and loved.

It made my return to work much easier knowing that my children are in the amazing loving, fun and safe environment which Caroline provides.
