About Me

I have been a registered childminder for 15 years now myself and my son Jude age 15 live in Bulford village, I am a home owner, and have my own car. We are an outside setting which is very child led, every day is an adventure. I also encourage lots of outside play, climbing, balancing, bike riding, pond dipping, nature trails & Life skills. I am a national trust member also. We also attend make use of the local library for rhyme & story time which the children love. We also visit the local farm once a week ... Seems to be the children's favourite day.
At our home we have a large fully enclosed back garden which has a wooden climbing frame with swings, den and slide, a play house with role play area and patio area for sit and ride toys plus a large sandpit.
Inside our home we have a toy room for the children to freely use with a large selection of toys to choose from ranging from books, puzzles, musical instruments,sensory toys and computer area.

Many thanks

Tanya is great, the children go out to different places every day, no matter the weather! Tanya has all the gear for wind, rain and snow! Regular farm visits, exploring nature and even the beach! Each day trip Tanya includes learning activities for the children and updates you daily with pictures of what they have been doing. Tanya does activities around the time of year like valentine's Day and Halloween and she gets in the spirit by getting dressed up too! My son loved his time with Tanya and he fit in very quickly there

Aw thank you very much for your lovely review xx

My son has been with Tanya over a year. Since the day we started talking she has been nothing but helpful. My son loves going to Tanya’s, more so than being at home. Every morning he asks if he can go and always opts to go there in the school holidays.

If we ever see Tanya outside of work, my son always runs over and gives her a hug and gets so excited to see her. Without fail every day he tells her how much he loves her. The bond they have in a short amount of time is amazing. He feels and acts like part of the family.

Tanya has been very supportive with my sons transition from pre-school to school and has helped and supported all the issues that have occurred during this time.

My new born daughter will also be starting with Tanya soon. I’m so excited for Tanya to help bring up and raise my daughter.

On a personal bases I see Tanya as a friend. She has helped and supported any personal issues and professional issues.

Would I recommend Tanya? 100% I would.

Tanya has been looking after my little Girl for the last 9 months and hopefully will do for a long while yet.

My little girl loves going to Tanya’s in the morning and misses her during the breaks. My daughter has learnt so much and Tanya continues to help us with milestones such as potty training.

Everyday they are off doing something new, if it’s not play group, library, soft play, arts and crafts, mud kitchen, visiting Buster the donkey or the farm they are on day trips to Stonehenge or more recently Monkey world. We always have exciting stories from her a dinner time.

I work 4 days a week and my husband is military. Tanya has been a fantastic support when he is away. We both love receiving pictures updating us on my daughters antics through out the day. The detailed developmental report we have also received from Tanya at the end of year was also very informative.

I would definitely recommend Tanya as a childminder. Very kind, friend and professional. My daughter is happy, in a safe, educational and fun environment.

my son has been at Tanya's for the past 18 months and throughout she has been amazing. my job mixed with being a single parent requires a degree of flexibility, and she has gone above and beyond to help me out if needed. The amount he's learnt with her is immense and his transition into reception should now be a lot smoother as a result.

cannot recommend her more highly!

Tanya is an excellent childminder -Professional, friendly and innovative. My son loves going to Tanya for childminding, she creates a home from home for him so there were no issues with settling in. He is always excited about what they will do each day and enjoys all the different activities they do together as a group.
I would highly recommend Tanya to people looking for a relaxed, friendly and safe environment to leave their children.
