Hi, I am a Ofsted registered childminder and I have been a childminder for 27 years. I live on the borders of Old Catton and Sprowston with my husband and my Cavapoo girl called Charlie. Your child will be cared for in a home environment within a family atmosphere. They will receive individual attention whilst also enjoying interaction with children of various ages. I follow the EYFS (Early Year Foundation Stage) inside my setting as well as outside. I use a very detailed tracker book for each child during the time your child is with me so you can be happy that your child is reaching all their goals and in a lot of cases in my setting they are exceeding their goals. I can be flexible and am very reliable.
We enjoy having fun with various activities such as painting. lots of arts and crafts, baking, singing/dancing and playing musical instruments, small world play and role play. We have slides, see saws bikes, scooters water/sand table and lots of other outside toys in a secure garden.
We have various learning games, puzzles and have a very large selection of toys which are suitable for all ages. I really enjoy my job and find it very rewarding watching the children grow up in my care.I really enjoy their company. I hope to carry on childminding for the foreseeable future.
I have 32 years experience of childcare and have 1 grown up daughter of my own.
I have taken the following courses: CPR First Aid, SLP Early Years Safeguarding, Female Genital Mutilation. The Prevent Duty in an Early years Environment, Autism Awareness, ADHD Awareness, Equality and Inclusion in Early Years Settings, Promoting Positive Behaviour, Improving Children's Learning through Play, EYFS Observation, Assessment and Planning and Anaphylaxis Awareness inc use of Auto-injectors. I am a member of PACEY and have my Public Liability Insurance with them. At my most recent inspection I was graded 'GOOD' overall but 'OUTSTANDING' in Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare, which was on 29th June 2018. YOU CAN READ MY REPORT ON THE OFSTED WEBSITE.
I have places for school children before, after school and school holidays. (White Woman Junior school is a 2 minute walk from my house).
My working hours are from 8.00 until 5.30 pm, Monday to Thursday.

Mandy is such a caring kind person and I felt so at ease the first time we met! I was a first time mum and Mandy really made me feel relaxed and excited about my little one joining her! Tillie always had such fun and loved being at mandys! Would highly recommend Mandy to anyone and hoping I can return to her once my second baby is due and maternity leave is over!
Mandy looked after my daughter 3 days a week from the age of 1 until she recently left to start school, and I highly recommend her childminding service. Mandy is calm, organised and reliable, her home is always clean and inviting, and there are plenty of toys! My daughter loves art and craft and Mandy has always encouraged her with lots of fun projects, often linked to the changing seasons and different festivals. We always had a chat about the day's activities and were kept up to date with developmental milestones each month. I will really miss Mandy and I am so grateful for the experience my daughter has had with her.
Mandy offers exceptional childminding. If you are looking for a home from home environment, Mandy is the childminder to go to. She has looked after my son for almost 2 years, and in that 2 years, he blossomed and was instantly at ease with Mandy. I knew exactly what my son had done each day, and he often engaged in drawing and craft which he gave to me. They celebrated festivals and cultures, and social skills are really encouraged. Mandy even improved my social skills by introducing me to some parents who i am now good friends with!
At all times, i never worried once about my son's care, as i was 100% trusting of Mandy and what she offered on a day to day basis. I knew all of his needs would be addressed, and this was communicated to me through my son, observations written down, chats with Mandy, photos and physically through drawings/models/craft.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have Mandy as our childminder. She is currently looking after both our kids (2 year old and a 6 month old). My daughter absolutely adores her and cannot stop talking about her and the things they do and I think when my son starts talking, he will also be raving about her. She is very attentive to my kids and always tells us about their day when we pick them up. One of the best decisions we made having Mandy as our childminder. Yolanda
Having had Childminder's for all three of my children (the eldest is now 17) I've had my fair share of Childminder's and I have to say without doubt Mandy has been the best. She is warm, caring and I always left my son knowing that she would look after him, not just his physical needs but his emotional ones too. Her home is inviting and fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and we miss her lots.
