I live in Pulborough with my husband Lee, our four lovely girlies, a very soppy chocolate Labrador and four cats!!! Both Lee and I are Ofsted registered childminders, I have been minding since 2005 and Lee has been minding part time with me since 2009. He also works shifts at LHR as the Engine Workshop Supervisor for Virgin Atlantic.
We are enthusiastic and love working with children. We offer a safe, fun and nurturing home, where we encourage all the children to develop as confident, happy individuals. The children experience an exciting, positive and caring environment of a large, happy family home and are able to discover a wide range of fun, creative and challenging activities formed around the framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
We regularly attend play sessions at both the local family centres and childminder drop-in groups, where the children in our care are able to associate with other children. We have a 9-seater mini bus which allows us to go out and about . The children enjoy regular trips to the local woods, parks, farms, the beach, National trust properties, soft play activity centres and other fun days out, as well as enjoying a range of stimulating activities at home including arts and crafts, messy play, cookery, role play, music & dance & outdoor play.
Since registering in 2005, I have cared for a number of children ranging from 4 months - 14 years, as well as caring for our own four children. Having been brought up with both my parents childminding, you could say my experience goes back as far as 25 years!!! I have seen childminding from both a child's perspective and now working as a childminder myself.
We have both successfully completed the Ofsted Introduction to Childcare Practice course as well as recognised First Aid in Paediatrics. We have also attended courses in Child Protection and Forest Schools training. Over the years we have also been able to take part in local training groups and attended the EYFS briefing. We are also a registered food provider with the local council.
Our working hours are Mon-Thurs 7:30 - 5:30 but these are flexible.
We currently have vacancies for both under 5s and over 5s. We offer full time/part time sessions. We are also able to offer before school and after school cover. We are happy to provide pick-up and drop-off service for all the local preschools and schools.

Jodie has been our childminder for 5 years from when our eldest daughter started school and our youngest was just a year old.
We have always been confident in leaving the girls with her over the years. They have always enjoyed their time whether it’s been jumping on the trampoline, biscuit decorating, Hama beads ( a favourite!) or day trips out.
If you are looking for childcare in a lovely family setting then we would highly recommend Jodie.
I just want to say how friendly, organised, fun Jodie’s childcare setting is...My son has had the best time in this loving family home. He has made some great friends here, and enjoys going. I would 100% recommend!
