About Me

Rachael’s Childminding

Ofsted registered childminder : I am a mum to two boys Billy 6 and Harrison 3 I live on Sandhills estate.
I worked as a nanny for ten years lots of experience from newborn to teenagers, before I became an ofsted registered childminder.

I will be offering a home from home childcare service, daily outings to mead open farm, zoo, local parks, Rushmere woods, local playgroups and story time at the library! I have a lovely sized garden for outside play with a play house, climbing fort and lots more.

I will be following the EYFS statutory framework re development and learning of children aged from birth to 5 years in my care.

Healthy eating will be encouraged at my home and the children will have lots of choices each meal and snack time.

My Experience

I worked for a family of 4 children in Harpenden until mum gave up work to be at home. 3 girls and 1 boy.

I worked for two families in berkhamsted looking after 2 girls aged 10months old and a 5 year old girl.

I worked for a family with 2 girls before and after school and full time in school holidays - taken my son with me until I had my second baby.

Below are the latest reviews for Rachael. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Rachael has looked after my daughter (aged 3) on numerous occasions and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She has a wealth of experience with children and is very unflappable and sensible, but also provides lots of fun and creativity. Her home is safe, calm and very clean and I know that my daughter is looked after brilliantly. It speaks volumes when she says that she doesn't want to come home in the evening!

Rachael currently looks after my 3 year daughter and 6 year old son before and after school. She has been fantastic since the start and genuinely cares about the welfare of my children. She has created a lovely setting for the children giving lots of thought to what types of toys my children will like playing with. She sets up the setting daily with different activities. They are always bringing home lots of creative art work and telling me about all the fun they have had. Rachael regularly sends me little updates and photos of the kids which is always well received. Rachael has never had time off for sickness and has always been professional and friendly with the childcare service she offers. I have no hesitation in recommending Rachael to other parents.
