About Me

I have two grown-up children of my own and 7 grandchildren. I am a Childminder and Ofsted registered with 'Good' Grading (2015), providing care for babies and children up to 8 years. I have completed my Foundation Degree in Early Years Childcare and Education Level 5 at the University of Portsmouth (2013).
I offer a caring, homely atmosphere for children to have fun, learn and interact with each other. I offer part time and full time places. I cater for pre-school, after school drop off and pick ups from the local schools. I enjoy caring for babies and young children who enjoy a dedicated playroom with a variety of resources to cater for all ages. Children are able to play in the garden, go for walks, play at local parks, visit the library and attend play groups.Outings are also arranged.
I provide an inclusive practice and all children are welcome in my setting regardless of nationality, culture or religion. I provide Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) education for children up to 5 years. I have experience with children with special educational needs. FREE 2 year old funding for those parents who qualify, FREE 3 and 4 year old government funded EYFS education is provided at the setting as well as FREE 30 hours also for those parents who qualify. Children sing and sign nursery rhymes and songs, story time, bake, draw, paint, enjoy messy play and craft, learn to use the computer and many more activities.
I care for after-school children. My working hours are from 07h00 - 19h00 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. My hours are flexible. Overnight care can be arranged. Please call for further information or book an appointment when all policies and certificates can be viewed and all questions or concerns can be discussed.
