About Me

I'm an Ofsted Registered Childminder offering a home from home environment.

I am a mum of 4, my eldest is 12, my middlies are 8 and 4 and my youngest was born in Jan 2020. I have worked with children for 14 years. I live at home with my children, my husband, and our family pets, Shayde, a 12 year old cat and Roxie, our 2 year old beagle. We live in the brooklands area and I do drop off and pick up from Leedon Lower and Brooklands Middle School.

We regularly go on trips out to local parks, woods, farms, play groups, zoo, shops and to local places like the library.

My last Ofsted inspection was May 2019 and was graded Good.

Please get in contact if you would like some more information.

Many Thanks,

Shelley is nurturing and kind. We feel secure knowing our son is in a home from home setting where he is able to develop in a secure environment. She selects activities to keep him engaged every day (that’s no mean feat! He is always on the go so gets easily bored). He was actually due to start preschool this term but we couldn’t bear to take him out of Shelley’s setting. I have total admiration for any childcare professional and Shelley in particular! 😊

Shelley has been taking good care of my daughter since she was one year old and she's great with kids. My LO loves spending time with her, they always do different activities and games and she has developed lots thanks to her. I am very happy with her service and I really hope we can continue having her as the LO childminder. Shelley always tries to accommodate to the hours I need and she's very flexible and reasonable. She has helped me a lot. I definitely recommend her services.

My daughter has been with Shelley since she was 1 year old. Shelley is a lovely person and accommodates my super early starts and can be flexible if I need extra hours due to work commitments. My daughter loves going to her and is coming on leaps and bounds developmentally. She provides a varied diet and always gives me a brief at the end of each day on everything my daughter has eaten and done. Her house is always very clean and tidy and I am very happy with the care she provides.
