About Me

I am a registered childminder, I have just received my second 'good' ofsted grading. I am a mother of a 12 year old little girl and a 6 year old little boy. I started childminding when my daughter was seven months old. I decided to become a chilminder to enable me to stay at home with my daughter.

I live in a semi-detached house with a great space outdoors for the children I care for. I live there with my husband and our Children.

I have a vast amount of indoor and outdoor toys and activities for the children, I plan for the children on an individual basis, basing this around their current interests to ensure the children get the most out of their learning whilst having fun. I am very keen on sensory play, so we do lots of messy activities, both indoors and outdoors.

I provide meals for the children consisting of, breakfast, lunch and tea, snacks are available inbetween. All meals that I provide are homemade.

I provide before and after school care, school drop off's and school pick up's from Thorpe Primary School.

My Experience

I have over nineteen years childcare experience, before becoming a mother I worked in a private day nursery for ten years, three of these years were in management.

I have been childminding now for nearly 11 years and I enjoy every minute of it.

Whilst working in Nursery I was in charge of the Health and Safety so I have a very good knowledge of keeping children safe whilst happy.

Carol made this transition so much easier for me and my partner. We have never had a child minder before but from our first meeting with Carol we both felt at ease. Carol looked after our daughter from 6 months old and the bond that they built was AMAZING!!!

Cleo has developed so much in Carol's care!!

We have always had our children in a routine and Carol fit in to our routine perfectly.

I can not put into words how helpful Carol was for me and my partner not only that the love and care she had/has for our daughter!!

I would recommend Carol to our friends and family and anyone who is looking for childcare.

Carol has excelled all our expectations as a childminder. Our four year old son settled into Carol's house in his first week and he thoroughly enjoys his time with Carol and her family. For us and our son she has become more like a family friend than a childcare provider. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carol to others and we hope she will have capacity to care for our younger daughter when the time comes.

Previously all my children have been in private day nurseries until one incident made me change my mind! I moved my son to Carol (I loved her from the minute I met her) and I have never looked back. My son have thrived so much more here than he ever did at the nursery. I never thought child-minding would be better than day care but it is with Carol.

Carol spends a lot of time and effort planning activities, which the children will enjoy, while they are learning so much at the same time. Her house is spotless and well equipped, garden is a child’s haven and she makes home cooked food every day.

I love how she spends time communicating with parents each day - she never makes you feel like she is in a rush or too busy to listen. The pictures she sends and updates she gives during the day is priceless - as a working family you miss the little things your child does when they develop - Carol recognises this and makes sure you are kept updated.

She is flexible, honest and really well priced - I will be sad when my son goes to school! I would highly recommend Carol for children of any age - she is a super star!

Carol had looked after my son from a very young age. My son is temperamental about who he is left with but loves Carol and her family and has become very close to them and the other kids. I first looked at a nursery in area but didn't get the initial feeling that it was where I wanted to leave my son. Carol was completely opposite as soon as I sat down with her I knew instantly that's where I wanted him to go. I would never want to put my children with any one else. She's amazing at what she does! xx

I needed a child minder at short notice. I had been told about Carol and I contacted her. Carol was very helpful and did more than her best to accommodate my needs. my little boy loved going and enjoyed all the different activities, no 2 days are the same, by boy came home shattered and full of stories of his adventures
