About Me

I aim to provide a warm, caring home environment where children can learn and develop at their own pace. I provide a wide variety of activities, toys and books including messy play, arts & crafts, story time, music time, cooking, outdoor play and local outings including parks, toddler groups and libraries. I work closely with parents, following child's routine as closely as possible in the context of working with several different families.

I am a widowed single mum of two grown up children who live at home. My daughter works locally as a Childcare Assistant and my son is a Shop Assistant. We are a pet friendly household with goldfish and a good natured dog who has his own area of the house and garden.

I currently collect & drop off at Hardwick Primary School (CB23). I cannot collect or drop off at the Cambourne site.

I'm so glad we found sue when looking for childcare for our daughter (age3). Sue is caring, friendly and has made sure our daughter was happy and settled every time we dropped her off. Our daughter loves it when she has a 'Sue day'. Sue provides a large variety of activities and walks/ outings, she has a lovely outside space too for children to use. Sue has been so thoughtful in acknowledging special days like birthdays and holidays for us, she has been flexible and been able to accommodate our other daughter for days during school holidays. I very much recommend Sue to anyone looking for childcare.

Sue is everything I hoped I'd find in a childminder when I found I needed childcare for my children. She put me and my children at ease immediately as this was my first time leaving them, outside of family. My 2 children (15months and 4 at the time of going to Sue) love visiting Sue. She creates a fun and educational environment and is attentive to development opportunities and logs these, so I never feel I miss out on important milestones. Sue is a kind, patient person and fantastic childminder. I am very glad we found her!

We left our toddler with Sue for 4 days when visiting a conference in Cambridge university. She has lots of activities to offer both in her house and outside and I think it helped our child to adjust to the new setting quickly. She seemed very reliable and attentive to details; we were sure that our child is safe with her and were able to concentrate on the conference while he was in her care. I could not ask for a better arrangement.
Her house is in a village outside Cambridge but reachable relatively easily by a bus from the city.
