About Me

I have been a registered childminder since 1986, Ofsted say I am OUTSTANDING. I go daily to St Francis School which is less than a five minute walk. I work from my family home which is shared with my husband and adult daughter. I care for 0 - 15 and am able to access the funding for two three and four year olds. I interact with all parents daily, promote positive relationships and an environment where communication is easy. Many children attend due to recommendation and many parents place siblings in my care which reflects well on my practices. I have many references to back this up. The house is situated in a cul-de-sac on the southern side of Melton Mowbray, superbly located within a five minute walk of St Francis School, parks and the town centre. A bus route is conveniently located at the end of my street with half hourly services linking me to all Melton has to offer.
Within the childminding setting children have access to a lounge with comfy seating and space for dance and movement. The lounge has doors which allow access to the garden which is a valuable extension of space. The children also use the kitchen which includes child friendly tables and seating and again has access to the garden. One bedroom upstairs is used for sleeping, and the children have access to a downstairs toilets.

My daughter has been with Carol now for nearly a month. I couldn't ask any more from her, the standard of care provided is exceptional she goes above and beyond her role as a childminder.
Carol has a warm, friendly and very welcoming approach my daughter has took to her vey well and looks forward to "going to play at Carol's" each day.
Activities provided are brilliant following the EYFS and are always planned around the child's age group and adapted as necessary to be inclusive of all age groups and abilities.
A journal is provided and written in daily providing all information on child's day from how muh dinner has been eaten etc to a small written paragraph of observation on activites in which my child has joined in so you get a real feel of how your child's day has been.
I genuinely am so pleased and grateful I have found Carol to be my childminder 5* +++ service in every aspect.
