About Me

I am an Ofsted Network registered Childminder. I offer the 15/30 hours free pre school funded hours for 2, 3 & 4 year olds, as I am an EYE provider. I have three boys aged 20,16,8
I have been childminding for 16 years & was previously a financial customer advisor, a gymnastics coach & publican!!!
I am very flexible with my working hours & start at 6am, I am also registered for over night care & I am a community childminder & Space carer.
Recieved 'Outstanding' from Ofsted in April 2015.

My Experience

I started childminding 16 years ago & have looked after over 90 children ranging from 1 month old to 12 years old. I previously worked with children as a gym coach since the age of 16 up until a few years ago.
I have an assistant that has worked and trained with me for the last three years, we have a great working relationship and she offers great consistency along with fantastic flexibility as she is insured as a nanny and babysits also, enabling us to offer an extended childcare package to parents. I have looked after children with medical condions, specific dietry requirements & have had training with specific medical conditions.I had my house modified to create more opportunities for play, learning & fun & to improve continuity of play from indoor to outdoor. I have different play areas available including book corner, home corner, role play area, dressing up rail. I provide a wide range of opportunities in free play & offer a great road safety awareness programme that was praised & acknowledged in my ofsted report. I provide a lot of physical activities & a great knowledge & understanding of the world around us through outdoor experiences. I did a business degree after my A levels & have studied several languages including English, Irish, French & German, this has been very helpful as I have previously minded children who did not have english as their first language
