About Me

Full time place from Sept 17. 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 drop off at Hardwick Primary School (CB23). I cannot normally collect or drop off at the Cambourne site.

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.
