Hi my name is Tor, I have been working with children for the last 20 years. I have recently moved from London. I love being outdoor and encourage children to get as much fresh air as possible and experiencing their natural surrounding, running though leaves or walks in woods! It’s the clothes they wear not the weather!!

Please feel free to discuss timings.
I have worked with children for the past 20 years in a variety of settings and for various ages from 6 months to 15 years.

Tor looked after our daughter when we needed cover at short notice. We were extremely happy and will definitely be using Tor again. She is great with kids and arranged lovely activities every day.
Tor has been providing childcare for our little girl from the time she was about 18 months to 3 years old. Our daughter adores Tor and we have come to depend on her. Tor is flexible, thoughtful, diligent and, most importantly, provides a fun, stimulating and safe environment for our daughter. I cannot recommend Tor highly enough.
Tor has been wonderful with our one year old son and her home setting is lovely, especially with the little garden. She’s extremely kind, very perceptive of what makes him tick and always keeps him busy! She has offered us the flexibility we have needed and given us confidence in putting him into childcare for which I’m very grateful. I would have no hesitation in recommending!
Tor looked after my boys aged 5 and 7 for a day for us. They had a splendid time doing crafts, playing trains and taking an outing to the local park. They enjoyed the lunch she provided and have spoken about their time with her at length. My younger has made the flour glue Tor taught him, everyday since.
She was professional and inspired confidence right from initial contact . We are an expat family only back in London from time to time but I would not hesitate to use Tor again.

Thank you for your response. Your Boys are great, with amazing personalities and imaginations. It was a pleasure to spend time with them and I hope to see them again soon.
Tor looked after my son whilst I had an interview in London. He really enjoyed his time with her. She was very attentive helping him settle- with an amazing collection of trains inside, then a sandpit and lovely garden outside. On the train on the way home he talked about everything he had been doing. Tor gave me an update on how he was getting on, which was very reassuring.
Tor communicated very well with me prior to the visit, which reduced my worries prior to my interview. Her house is lovely, a very homely, child-friendly space. The lunch looked really nice too- and my little boy ate really well.
Thanks again Tor
