About Me

I have been an Ofsted Registered Childminder since 1991, caring for many babies and children in my home. I am married with three sons aged 32, 30 and 27 ( two live at home) We live in the West of Ipswich off Dale Hall Lane . ( not far from Sherrington Road Park)

I offer a safe, fun, stimulating environment for the children to play and develop. I have a large range of inside and outside toys and resources for the children. This include a playhouse, water and sand play and I also have a separate playroom etc. We make lots of cakes, craft activities and we plant and grow fruit and vegetables in the garden. I organise a coach trip to Clacton in the Summer holidays and we have a Christmas party (normally at Wacky Warehouse, play centre on Cardinal park)

I often take the children to Jimmys farm/zoo, Baylham farm, toddler groups, Felixstowe, parks, play-centres and children centres etc, where they can explore further.

I take and collect children to/from Springfield Infants and Springfield Junior Schools, (which is a fifteen minute walk or five minutes drive in the car). I can take/collect the children to the local playgroups and nurseries in the local area.

I have a seven seater car which is fully insured for business use.

I have an assistant who helps me part-time. (who was a previous Childminder )

At my last three Ofsted inspections I received an "Outstanding" grade in every area. My Ofsted number is 250676, which can be viewed on line.

I have many references from parents that can be viewed, and I have a parents pack that can be sent if required before you visit my setting (home).

My Experience

I have been childminding for 26 years and I have worked in the Suffolk College nursery as a pool member of staff. I run and organise a toddler group at St Thomas Church and I was a Cub Leader for 15 years.
