About Me

Hello, I am Zoe, an Ofsted childminder, a Partner to Sam and mum of 2 children, in Doe Lea, Chesterfield.

I am a confident person who thoroughly enjoys watching children develop and thrive.

My Experience

I decided I wanted to work with children eleven years ago. I did voluntary work within a local primary school which lead me to completing a 2 year course to be a Level 3 Teaching Assistant.
I have worked amongst each year group within primary school as a class TA as well as 1:1 work. After my son, I worked within a nursery collecting primary aged children from different schools, providing them with transport to the nursery then making sure they have eaten and enjoyed some play.
My final stop was working in a nursery in the city centre. This was a very demanding role within a multi-culture area, a wide variety of needs and languages. The children here were from 0-5years.

My Qualifications

I have 11 GCSE'S, 2 Alevels and 2 AS Levels.
I then went to on to college to study CACHE Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Level 2 and 3.
Im a qualified childminder.
Through work, I have completed EYFS training,several Safeguarding courses,First Aid & Behaviour courses.
I do weekly courses.

My Availability

I will try and be as flexible as I can, I have my own children and know what it is like trying to find child care around certain hours. Please drop me a message and I will see if I can accommodate your needs. Please message me.

I am currently full till SEPTEMBER 2021 I will have a full time space and part time space available from then.

I currently have 2 children who are currently with Zoe and she is absolutely brilliant, I could not of picked a better childminder. My eldest who is 4 previously went to a nursery, she was very shy there and struggled to make friends, she was also going to be referred for S&L therapy as this was another struggle for her, however since going to Zoe's, her speech is incredible, we now have conversations. She also makes friends quite easily now, has really come out of her shell. My youngest is 2 and his speech in amazing, he will have a conversation with you and tell you exactly what he wants, he often sings songs to me he has learnt at Zoe's. One of my children was a really picky eater also, however now will eat almost anything and try new things. Since going to Zoe from 2019 the improvements are amazing and I can not thank Zoe enough. Zoe is also very understanding with personal lives. I am a single mum and Zoe has always gone above and beyond to support me if i had a change of work pattern and even when i started education again, Zoe changed the hours for me to fit around my learning. Honestly, if you're wanting a lovely, reliable childminder Zoe is the one. She is so friendly and my children absolutely love her and will be so sad when they wont be going anymore.

Thank you Carla for such a lovely review.
I’m so proud of how well the children have grown and developed over the last 18months.
It’s been a pleasure to have them. X
