About Me

School Holiday spaces available

Hi, I am LouLou, I am 48years old and have lived in Winklebury Basingstoke for 25 years. My partner Ryland, 2 children Luke 25 years old and Laura 22 years old (who has recently become my full time assistant and is working towards her childminding qualification) along with Cooper the dog and Lily the cat make up our happy family, they all have a wonderful rapport with all the children that are looked after in my home and they are very helpful.

My Experience

I have been a Registered Childminder with Ofsted for 25 years and my daughter has recently become my assistant and have looked after over 110 children in this time, most of whom im still in contact with, I provide a happy, safe, caring environment with children aged from baby to Secondary School age. I feel I offer a home from home environment in my setting. I thoroughly enjoy my job and we have great fun doing activities such as dressing up, colouring, cars and trains,Kitchen, Hama beads, dollies, painting, arts and crafts, leaf collecting, going to the park, word searches, WII (occasionally) , singing, dancing, a book corner and many more. On special occasions such as birthdays we have a tea party and at Christmas, Easter, Mothers Day etc we make arts and crafts for the children to take home .Children also have the opportunity to do their homework on returning from school. I have a diary that is filled in everyday noting our activities and also children have their own personal journal which is available for parents or myself to write down anything that is important. I am open to new ideas or topics that your children love doing and I am willing to incorporate these to my setting, I pride myself on teaching all children in my care good manners and to be respectful to others

Lou lou is just amazing. She's the first woman I ever trusted outside of family to take care of my two boys, aged three and one and half. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more. Aside from the great price, she offers a warm, loving home from home type of nursery setting. My youngest had extreme separation anxiety and would scream whenever I was out of his sight. After the first two weeks or so, he would say good bye mummy, have a nice day!! (that's if I even got a good bye) My boys always asked "are we going to lou Lous?" They just adore her as do I. She gave me updates regularly and within around two weeks my eldest son was fully potty trained despite his previous nursery (and myself) trying tirelessly for months. I have so much to thank her for. She taught my children so much in the few months she cared for them and we are gutted that we couldn't pick her up and bring her with us to our new home in a different town. Lou lou, keep being the amazing woman you are, and we miss and love you lots! K, Isaiah and Elijah xxx
