About Me

CHILDMINDING WITH A MONTESSORI TWIST I am an Irish trained nursery teacher who has recently gone into independent child care. I have two children myself my eldest is 13 and my youngest is 8. I am fun and very creative we have lots of messy play at my house the messier the more fun. I love a dry day and believe in making the most of the outdoors weather it be going for a walk on a nature discovery or running in the parks and play grounds.
I love to stimulate the imagination with lots of roll play and mini world a child with a well developed and stimulated imagination will never be bored.

I am signed up to the baby days system. I will create a profile on your child which will keep you up to date with daily diaries, menu plans, your child's development all of which you will access to with your individual password and code. Each parent has there own private file which can only be accessed by you and me. All policies and contracts and other forms will also be available to you at the touch of a button. I've found this system fantastic at keeping up to date with all my parents. It also has a tracker login so you can check your child's stages of development as well as targets set and achieved.
With parental permition photos can be taken as part of observations so that you can see your little one at work.

I work using the montessori method, encouraging independence and confidence and as your child gets older hopefully move on to pencil control ,phonics and numeracy.
Yearly when the summer school holidays come lots of fun trips are planned. Our most recent trip was to hobbledown farm and chessington. We spent the summer days at various parks such as beddington, Wimbledon, bockwell to name a few, Museums are always fun with lots of interactions and learning. Hampton court palace and gardens are a firm favourite.
Healthy meals and snacks will be provided daily all year round using seasonal fruits and vegetables.
And a great day is guaranteed.

My son started with Lianne full-time when he was eight months old when I went back to work. Alistair has now been with her for over a year and I am not exaggerating when I say that we have landed on our feet with her. There is only so much I can say here without sounding too gushy but she is, among other wonderful things, humorous, down-to-earth, loving, practical, supportive and my son absolutely adores her.

The day-to-day activities she has laid out for the kids has enhanced Alistair's language and general learning development. As my first child, I have no real comparisons so Lianne being so experienced and knowledgeable means that we are kept up-to-date with Alistair's key stages of development. He eats, sleeps and behaves well with Lianne (which is more than can be said for when he is at home!).

Lianne has really welcomed us all into her life yet we don't feel pressured or hassled to be anything more than what we are - first time parents doing our best.

To summarise, I'm not sure how I would have coped going back to work without Lianne. Alistair has never looked back!

My son started with Lianne when he had just gone two. Being my first child I was very apprehensive about him being with a childminder , after meeting With Lianne I knew that I would like her to care for Brandon whilst I was at work. Brandon's speech was slow but since starting with Lianne in July 2013 he has come on leaps and bounds and is now chatting away saying new words and trying to make sentences. The care that Lianne provides is truly outstanding , she has many games for a variety of ages that will help them with there learning and development, takes them on outings to feed the ducks or have a play at the park etc... I am kept up to date with every aspect of his development and if any injuries happened I am contacted. Has a brilliant appetite with Lianne and has a range of different healthy food and snacks that he enjoys. Overall Brandon absolutely loves being with Lianne and I would high recommend her to anyone!
