About Me

**Fully qualified early years primary school teacher** Ofsted registered childminder**

Currently only taking bookings for September 2021. Term time only spaces.

I am an Ofsted registered childminder working as Little Penguins Childcare. A fully qualified early years primary school teacher.

I provide the children in my care with a safe and homely environment in my beautiful family home. We have a lovely play room and garden with a full range of activities and toys for children to have fun and explore.

We attend group sessions and all children will have an opportunity to have outdoor play whether this is in our mud kitchen in the garden or at a local park or wood. I also hold a pass to Whipsnade Zoo.

I provide a broad curriculum linking our activities to topics related to the children's interests to ensure children receive access to the full EYFS curriculum. This includes visits to local areas of beauty, visits to our local fire station and well planned activities at home.

I provide daily diaries and learning journals though Babydays, this enables you to look at your child's progress at your convenience.

Funding and vouchers accepted.

I had the pleasure of meeting Louise when my daughter was fortunate enough to be in her reception class at Hammond Academy. Louise was warm and welcoming and my daughter adored her. She fostered a fun, caring and inclusive educational environment inwhich my daughter thrived. I felt as though as a mother herself Louise understood how it can feel as parent to leave your child under someone else's care and I believe strongly that her kind nature was paramount in my daughter's smooth transition to full time school. I feel any child would benefit under Louise's care. I can only hope my youngest daughter is so lucky to have a teacher like her when she starts school.

My son was taught by Louise in reception and I truly believe that she made the whole transition from nursery half days to full days of school so seamless.
My son loved having Louise teach him and he enjoyed every day, Louise is very kind but also firm when required. My son has a lot of respect for Louise as do I.
She is truly missed as a teacher but I know that childminding is the right path for her.

Louise used to look after both my son and daughter a few years ago. They were always so excited when they knew it was their days to go and see Louise. She has a very friendly approach and was so helpful in settling in my son who suffered with separation anxiety. Louise always managed to make me feel involved in their care even though I worked full time. One thing I am ever grateful for is that she raised concerns over our daughters eye sight, something that we had not noticed. It turns out she needed glasses and had been struggling with her vision. If it wasn't for Louise this may have not been picked up for another 2 years when Lily would have her checks in school. I would recommend Louise to anyone looking for a local childminder.
