About Me

I’m an Ofsted registered Childminder, I have 3 boy's aged 12,11, 4 years. I'm a very fun, loving and caring person, I'm married and live in Upton, Northampton. I am committed to providing a friendly nurturing professional setting where the safety and welfare of children in my care will always be my primary concern.

I have a lovely home that provides children with that home from home feel. I'm very lucky to live so close to Upton country park and other Green space. I also like to visit the local farms, green spaces and we are members of Woburn safari.

I always provide children with lots of fun, love and praise.

My son has been a part of the Little O’s family since September 2022 and he absolutely loves going and asks to go at weekends too!
Helen is an absolutely amazing childminder! Our son adores Helen and her family. A true home from home childminder who takes you and your child in as one of the family. The activities and days out are outstanding, always busy and learning. Our son has come on leaps and bounds since attending Little O’s and it is definitely down to the care, attention and activities he is given by Helen. Helen is brilliant at communicating what they are getting up to throughout the day and doesn’t rush the evening handover either, taking her time to make sure all information is passed on. A massive thank you Helen! ⭐️

Helen is an excellent childminder, we’ve been using her for nearly 9 months. Helen immediately put us at ease when we met her and she showed us her setting.

My daughter talks about what she’s been doing with Helen when we pick her up and she’s always had a fun time playing with the other children, she’s even drawn pictures days later! They go to the park, to the zoo and other fun days out. Helen sends us pictures of what they’ve been up to during the day which I love to see.

My daughter really looks forward to seeing Helen.

I have been using Helen's services coming up to two months now, she does the morning school run for my 6 yr old. He absolutely loves being dropped off at her house he calls it "Helen's breakfast club" its definitely the best part of his morning. Helen is such a gem, I struggled to find childcare for the teacher strike days she stepped in and offered her services so I was able to go to work. I would honestly recommend Helen to any parent seeking childcare.

I am so happy my little one is at Little O's. The nursery previously attended wasn't really working and I began my search for alternative childcare. The second I met Helen I knew she was the right fit for our family. She takes the children on exciting adventures out and about; to the safari park, to playgrounds and forests. She also prepares breakfasts, lunches and snacks for the children and always lets parents know if the children have been off their food or needed alternatives. She doesn't add any salt to the food she gives the children and always makes sure they have healthy options (regardless of whether they eat it). My little one is so happy to see her in the mornings and has learned so much while in her care. I wholeheartedly recommend Little O's and am so grateful a spot was available with Helen just when we needed it.
