My name is Caroline and I am an Ofsted registered childminder and trained Montessori teacher. My goal is to provide a safe, friendly home learning environment which nurtures the child’s individual needs through the Montessori Philosophy and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
I live with my husband Niel and we have two young children. We are located in a quiet area of Putnoe, Bedford and live in a large 3-bedroom semi-detached house with secure 35 meter garden, fully equipped playroom, large covered outdoor area and separate nap room. The playroom is thoughtfully prepared to encourage the children freedom of choice and develop their independence. We have a vegetable garden and the children help grow produce. There is a fantastic play gym, slide and a paved track all the way around the garden for riding bikes, trikes and scooters. I am able to do pick up/drop offs to Brickhill Primary. We are a totally smoke free household. We have a miniature Dachshund, Dimple, who adores children and attention.
There is always lots of parking available.
I qualified as a Montessori Early Years teacher in 2013 and started childminding in July 2016.

What an amazing and nurturing environment. I am so lucky to have found this gem in Bedford and it truly is an inspirational setting for children. Caroline is caring, passionate and intuitive and all the children here are happy, well-mannered and creative. Caroline's home is perfectly set out with a room specifically designed for childminding; there is also an array of fabulous tactile resources following the Montessori ideology. Additionally, the warm and comforting home has a wonderful back garden which is safe and secure for children to play and enjoy themselves. Truly fantastic service and a wonderful wonderful childminder.
