UNDER 5 YEAR OLD SPACES FROM SEPTEMBER 2021
My name is Lisa and I am an Ofsted registered childminder and mom to two daughters and a dog called zidane. I am from South Africa but have been living in the UK since 2006.
I have just had my first Ofsted inspection and have received a Good.
I am a very affectionate, understanding and giving person. I try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible so please feel free to contact me with your needs.
I love getting involved with the children in all of the daily activities we do and take great pride in seeing them grow and flourish into independant confident individuals.
I believe that every child is special and that they all deserve to be cared for in a safe, healthy, secure and loving environment. I want every parent to feel happy in the knowledge that while they are working their precious little ones have been left in such an environment where they can continue to develop and grow into happy, content and confident individuals.
I provide a 'home away from home' environment and only take on a few children. I like to keep my setting small and personal which gives me the ability to offer more attention and care to each child
Whilst your child is under my care I provide a range of activities (fully integrated Early Years Foundation Stage framework) to enable the children to develop and learn through play in a caring, supportive and happy environment.
I have a lovely playroom which is full of books, educational toys and other toys that leads onto a large garden which we use regularly and has lots of play equipment including a trampoline.
We go to parks, toddler groups, the library, rhyme time, go on nature walks, play dates and we go to great places like the zoo and jimmy's farm, which is a favourite with all the kids.
We play with Playdough, sand and water. We get messy with water, shaving foam and mud. We look at books. We learn about different people and cultures. We learn to recognise letters and numbers and words. We copy the stories in our play and best of all we love to cuddle up together and listen to stories, We paint, draw, pretend to write, cut out and glue. We make collages and prints. We learn to use scissors and to be creative. We sing songs and make music, we listen to music from different countries, we dance and learn new songs. We make friends and learn about sharing, taking turns and respecting people, we learn to mix with children who may be older or younger than us. We learn about the rules and how to say "Sorry" if we upset someone.
I also have a network of childminder and mummy friends who I meet up with regularly, which is great as the children form relationships with others their own age.

Lisa has been looking after my eldest son on and off now for the past 4 years and has recently started looking after my 1 year old.
She provides an excellent childcare service so much so that my little ones absolutely love going to hers.
I can honestly say I feel completely comfortable and trustworthy of Lisa looking after my two, and I know I can always rely on her to do a great job. She has a great range of different toys for the children and does fun, educational activities with them.
I would highly recommend Lisa as a childminder for all the above reasons and because she really makes an effort to build a good relationship with myself as well as my children.
Lisa has looked after my daughter for 2 years and wha a brilliant two years they have been. From the moment my daughter joined Lisa, she has been happy and Lisa has done nothing but care and love my child like she wasn’t her own.
Eva (my daughter) has grown and developed so much since 2017 when she first started with Lisa, her speech and the language that she uses has developed wonderfully, her laughter and enjoyment with different things that they do is amazing and her social skills have developed brilliantly.
Working full time is extremely difficult when it comes to milestones, but Lisa always keeps my informed of anything new Eva does and also helps her through milestones such as potty training! I don’t think I could have got through that without her.
Lisa provides a warm caring environment which the children can play happily in and continue to develop and grow, there are lots of activities for the children to do as well s trips they take out. I have never seen a child not having fun when they are with Lisa. I could not recommend her any more, she is FANTASTIC!! and to Eva she is the queen!!
My daughter has been going to Lisa for just over 2 months now and she absolutely loves it! She is always happily playing with Lisa's daughters and the other girl Lisa looks after on that day.
Lisa is very flexible with times, she will take our daughter whatever time we need her too. If we want to swap a day, not a problem. Lisa feeds her lunch and dinner which is always healthy food as well as healthy snacks if required.
Lisa will text me during the day to let me know how she's doing and always sends lots of cute pictures.
There is a massive playroom with loads of different toys to play with. There is also a huge garden with loads of toys, swings and a trampoline.
Lisa's property is safe, comfortable and well maintained. Would definitely recommend!!
Lisa was my nanny for over 1.5 years, I was going back to work for the first time after 4 years and I was extremely nervous leaving Oscar with someone I didn't know. That all changed the day I met lisa (Oscar is VERY shy and not outgoing whatsoever, he doesn't leave my side) The moment Lisa stepped into our house we knew she was the one! Her very well mannered and gentle daughter couldn't have made Oscar feel more comfortable and I can say that I could leave him with her without having to worry about him while I am at work. When I came home he couldn't wait to tell me about the day that he had! He was always busy, whether it was arts & crafts, playing imaginative games, going on exciting outings - his favourite so far has been the zoo. Lisa has an incredible imagination, and she played very interesting educational games with Oscar, she taught him his numbers, how to count, add, how to tell the time and something I found remarkable was how to express his emotions e.g. When he had a melt down he would say " Mummy I'm tired" or "Mummy I'm upset because you won't let me watch TV" " Mummy I'm frustrated because I can't get my lego tower not to fall" and that made my life so much easier understanding some of his melt downs. I've never been happier and I am over the moon I finally found someone I can trust with my first and only baby and someone who understands the worry a mother has for their child. Lisa is also an exceptional cook and extremely healthy! (Oscar is now eventually eating his vegetables!) She is very professional, extremely reliable and I know I can depend on her. If we hadn't moved to Yorkshire she would still be looking after Oscar, He still asks for her and Arèlla all the time. Honestly she was a blessing and helped me through so much! I can't recommended her enough!
I am one of Lisa's "mommy friends" and have known Lisa since we were kids ourselves.
Lisa is a very hands-on, capable mom! Nothing bothers her, nothing is too much for her.. mess and chaos are her speciality - I don't know how she does it!
She treats my little boy (2yrs) like one of her own and he thoroughly enjoys the company of her and her daughters, and even her partner! He constantly chatters about them all at home and asks to see them every time we get into our car!
Lisa has an amazing playroom, filled with fun and educational toys which makes for a brilliant playdate!
Lisa looks after my little boy on a regular basis and is very flexible. He is sometimes there all day and sometimes just a few hours and she is always happy to have him even with very short notice.
I have no problem recommending Lisa as an excellent childcare provider!
