Hello my name is Helen and I am an Ofsted registered childminder, I live in the Hilperton area of Paxcroft Mead Trowbridge with my husband and our two boys, nine and twelve. I have recently been graded as Good in my February 2019 Ofsted inspection.

I provide the children in my care with a safe, warm, fun home from home environment where they can play and learn.

I use the downstairs of our house and garden for the children, as well as a dedicated playroom full of toys. When safe to do so I will continue to attend a local playgroup and make many trips to the park, we walk in the woods, and other days out such as visiting Longleat. We enjoy playing in the garden with water, sand and in the mud kitchen. I plan activities for the children in-line with the EYFS to engage them and help the children learn and progress in my care.

Helen has been a wonderful childminder to my son and daughter. My son has moved on to a pre-school now but my daughter is still with her and both have loved going to Helen's. Helen offers a friendly and warm, family environment, home-cooked meals and a lovely play area at her house. I totally trust Helen with my children and and they have developed really well in her care. I think it is particularly great that Helen takes the children to such lovely places such as Longleat and Softplay as well as other playgroups.

My son had his last day today with Helen after nearly 2 years with her. Couldn't of asked for anyone better to take care of our son. He's absolutely loved going to her and doing all the fab activities Helen organised. Helen always provided a very safe and happy environment. Very sad it has come to an end and Nursery now calls. Highly recommend Helen and her care, couldn't of done the past few years without her! You will be missed!

Highly recommend Helen, she has been brilliant with our son. Great variety of activities for the children lots to do inside and outside. As parents we are kept up to date on everything he does when he's in her care. He is very happy with her and loves going. Makes it easier to leave them when you know they are happy and looked after safely.
