About Me

I am the daughter of a former British Army Officer and was educated overseas in Germany, Hong Kong and Northern Ireland. On my return to the UK in 1994 I studied for two years to gain my NNEB Diploma in Nursery Nursing and have since settled in Abingdon with my husband and daughters.

I am committed to providing an excellent childcare service which welcomes families and offers a homely, safe, fun, healthy and caring environment.

The number of children in my care will be kept to a minimum to benefit the individual needs of each child and to ensure an excellent quality of attention and care for all. I believe that this along with my experience and qualifications will offer a high quality service for all families.

I offer a range of activities, experiences and opportunities including and not limited to visiting parks, toddler groups, local library and children's centre.

My home includes a variety of indoor and outdoor resources including puzzles and games, dressing up, wooden train set, construction toys, play kitchen, musical instruments, threading, slide, tunnels and sand tray.

Creative activities include sticking, painting, play dough, cooking, gardening, cutting, chalking, drawing and junk modelling.

I enjoy the outdoors and encourage outdoor activities what ever the weather.

In my spare time I enjoy walking, jogging, cooking, gardening, reading and spending time with family and friends.

Please contact me if you have any further questions or would like a brochure detailing my service in more depth.

My Experience

During my career in childcare I have cared for children between the ages of 0-13 years in a variety of settings which are; as a Nursery Nurse in a private day nursery, a classroom assistant in a school, as a nanny in the families home and most recently as a mum to my daughters born in April 2009 and November 2013.
