My Summary

Ofsted Registered
Key Worker Childcare

About Me

I am a mum of two boys, Ollie and Kieran and both are used to sharing my time with other children, I enjoying being a childminder and have been for over 17yrs.

In our setting we like the children to feel comfortable, offering them an home environment providing, a safe place for activity, rest, eating and sleeping. The outdoor environment gives the children the chance to explore, using their senses and be physically active.

My Experience

I have been an Ofsted Registered childminder for almost 18yrs my last ofsted inspection was good which I have just been inspected. I have many years of experience of looking after my own children as well as working as a child minder and also running my own creches for a local training centre and the local colleges who I still currently aid.

I first began child minding & creches in 2003-2006 and then went on to work in a local school to give one to one support to students who require extra class room support, I then decided to return back to child minding in July 2007 and currently still running a successful childcare setting.
We use the Childcare software baby days that gives parents access to what their child has been doing in their day it is also shows the child's observations under the new EYFS and enables parents to view their child's day within the setting at their own leisure. We do planned activities for the setting which are planned around themes and during the day we arrange different learning activities for the children, the children have a very large garden to play in which is secure all around and we work from a specific large room within my home where the children have access to free play, craft, construction play, role play and outdoor play. As a setting we also provide children under preschool age with a book bag enclosed is a comment book, a weekly changed book to read and flash cards learning abc, numbers and new words which they can take home to sit with mum/dad or older siblings to help with their development in communication and language.
I work along side childminding assistants who has been DBS checked, Ofsted checked . I am currently doing myBa Honours Degree in early years with MK open University on a distance learning basis.

Lisa and her team have been amazing. My daughter has learned so much from there. Her place is always spotless and she updates her toys and equipment regularly. Every week my daughter would bring back some drawings and artwork home. I just can’t praise Lisa and her team enough.

Lisa is the best childminder we have ever had, her care and service is outstanding. We previously had a childminder for our daughter which we had to leave. With Lisa its about the children and my daughter absolutely loves going to Aunty Lisa's.

You are the best Lisa so glad you came into our lives, we are absolutely blessed. Our daughter has learnt so much.

My youngest daughter, Arabella, has been in Little Ducklings since I returned to work and I honestly cannot fault Lisa and her team.
Arabella really enjoys her time at Aunty Lisa’s and I feel she is very safe and well looked after.
Lisa is kind and compassionate and very professional - you can tell that she really cares about the setting and each child’s welfare very strongly.
She sometimes also has both my boys during school holiday and I find her accommodating to our changing needs and and always very professional. The boys love her too.
I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Little Ducklings to any other working parent as Lisa goes above and beyond to accommodate our needs in every way.
I honestly don't know how we'd have made it through the last few years without her

From the moment I spoke to Lisa on the phone I knew this was the person I wanted to look after my children when I had to go back in to full time work.

Her approach is amazing and both my boys absolutely love going there. Lisa always treats the children as if they are her own and I always have two happy boys who come home and tell me about all the activities Lisa and the staff have done with them... its brilliant and I love the art work they always bring home. Lisa makes it a very fun and educational environment for the children there. She is a lovely woman and I never ever feel anxious leaving them in her care, her home is secure and I know my boys are always in safe hands. I honestly can not fault little ducklings and would recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for childcare from someone who is reliable,flexible, caring and genuinely has a love and passion for what they do.
