About Me

Hi my name is Mary and I'm from Ireland. I’m an OFSTED registered childminder and a member of the NCMA (National Child Minders Association). I'm based in Islington N7.

I have 4 grown up adult children.

My Experience

I have been childminding for over 30 years.

I have looked after children from all ages from new born to toddlers. I am trained to look after children with special needs and my home is set up to accommodate children of many needs.

I provide a fun, safe and educational environment for the children under my care. I visit local toddler groups, local parks, farms and the local library to ensure the children get the most out of their time with me.

My Qualifications

During my childminding career I have done many courses to ensure that I meet all the children’s needs. This includes a regular First Aid course, Food Hygiene, Child protection & Health and safety courses.

Recently attained December 2014:
CACHE Level 3 Diploma for Children and Young People's Workforce (QCF)

Mary is such a great childminder! I dont fault her in any way. She has had my daughter since she was 9 months old and she couldn't of been in safer hands. Mary has always kept me updated on my daughters progress by sending me photos and updates every day down to the amazing profile and progress books. She has helped mould my daughter into a very confident, outgoing and clever little girl and has been a great help in preparing her for Nursey life. She also takes her to nursery now and that is such a big help! Mary I am forever grateful for what you have done for me and my family! Thank you xx

Mary looked after my 14 month old son and he absolutely adored her! She has all the qualities that you would wish for- she is loving, caring and the kindest childminder you will ever find. She cooks beautiful home made meals and provides a detailed diary so I knew exactly what my son had eaten and done throughout the day.
Mary also took the children out everyday and attended library story telling sessions as well as stay and play sessions at local children’s centres- because of this, I saw a huge improvement in my son’s social interaction skills with other children.
We decided to leave London and were heartbroken to be loosing Mary as a childminder. My son still asks about Mary and all the children she cares for. We considered Mary and all the children like family members.
We cannot recommend Mary enough! You and your baby/child will love her and most importantly she will love them and treat them like one of her own!

Mary has had my two children for 6 years and on going. The oldest from 3 and my youngest from 9 Months. She is fab. She has a loving family home and a beautiful playhouse in the garden, something to suit for all ages. She does my school drop off and pick ups. They have nutritious meals and homework is completed which is a massive help! In the half terms she always has days out planned for them. Playgroups, Farms, parks, to name a few. They are never bored. Mary spends her time interacting with the children in her care and very informative on their day! She is very kind, caring and generous. I would be lost without her!

Mary has looked after my 2 boys for almost 3 years. When they started with her my oldest found the transition from nursery to child-minder difficult, his behaviour was quite wild and erratic but Mary was amazing. She is calm, strict when she needs to be, fun, affectionate and is always informative about what they have been doing. She takes the younger ones out every day to groups, activities or the Zoo and provides healthy, home cooked meals for them. She has become like a member of our family and she even looked after the kids for a few nights when we went abroad for a wedding. Highly recommended from all our family.
