About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

I have been a registered childminder with Ofsted for over 20 years since my own children were little ( they are now 18, 22 and 24 )I still love my jpob and can provide excellent references. . I live in a 4 bedroom terrace house in Hatfield Garden Village next to the buisness park.My house is secure and has a large back garden.We have a lovely playroom where the children take pride in displaying their art work. We attend several childminding groups and enjoy trips to local parks and lakes. I work closely with parents and can offer excellent references. I still really enjoy my work and this shows with my enthusiasm and the children's eagerness to attend each day.I believe children learn through their play and with the experiences they encounter I had my last Ofsted inspection in November 2009 and this is availble to see. We are a house of animal lovers which includes a small dog, 4 cats and a horse (which obviously does not live in the garden!)

My Experience

I have looked after children from many different backgrounds and experiences, this has given me a good insight to many varied ways of raising children. I am a memember of the Hertfordshire Childminding Consultative group. I have never had a child leave in bad circumstances and have not had a day off sick in over 3 years.

My Qualifications

I am first aid trained and have my safeguarding children certificate in place. Also food hygiene,risk assessment and many others. I have passed my Level 4 qualification which took a years hard work.I have the NCMA Quality First award which ensures my continued professional development.

Sam looked after our toddler untill we moved from the area. She is a God send! I was so scared at first of leaving him with a child minder but Sams warm and friendly approach to everything made me feel as comfortable as leaving him with family. Wish we lived nearer still!
