About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

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.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for mandy morter. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our daughter has been with Mandy since she was 1 and Mandy went out of her way to help her settle and ensure she was happy. Our daughter wakes every day and asks if she can go to Mandy's house.

They are always doing something fun and educational, whether it's food tasting for Diwali or exploring her lovely garden, our daughter constantly talks about the adventures she's had with Mandy and her friends.

Mandy has consistently shown her experience in childcare, and our daughter has developed so much during her time at Mandy's.

If we weren't moving house we would have continued to stay with Mandy, she is loving, kind, professional and genuinely cares for all of her children.

Our daughter (now 3) will miss Mandy when we leave and we can only hope we will be lucky enough to find another Mandy when we move.

Highly recommended childminder, who has continued to support us as parents, by being flexible whilst we both work shifts.

I will miss my weekly emails filled with pictures of their daily fun!

Mandy was our first chosen childminder and we were lucky enough to also be neighbours (on the same street).
We decided to send our little boy to Mandy's atleast once a week from the age of one for social interaction reasons. We don't regret it one bit.....
When you first meet Mandy, she immediately gives you a calm, happy feeling and this is passed onto the children in her care straight away. She is always well presented (even first thing in the morning), her house is always warm, clean and comforting. Another added bonus is she provides, breakfast, lunch and snacks all included for children there all day.
It was nice to find a childminder that doesn't look after other children around their own, taking them all on school runs etc. That's something we've had to accept since moving home and seeking childcare elsewhere. We were truly spoilt having Mandy as our first childminder and had we not moved to the opposite side of Norwich, we'd still be using her.
I cannot recommend her highly enough. She's professional, cautious, careful, warm and kind and kids love her.
Every other childminder should seek to be as good as Mandy!!

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.
Totally recommended!
