My name is Michelle and i am married to Carl and have two children Sophie 21 and Susy aged 18 both girls are fabulous with children. We have a border collie dog Clara (she is wonderful with children and everyone seems to know her!) and 4 cats,Tommy,Sparkle,Belle and Soloman, two house rabbits Fern and Ivan, four guinea pigs Gloria, Gerty, Gilbert, and Gaynor, we also have fish too! We have a good sized family home with a large enclosed garden and live very close to Ashdene Primary School. We have numerous toys and equipment for all ages from babies up to teenagers. We attend local mums and tots groups, songs and rhymes and the local parks and farms. We do lots of crafts and activities linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage. Each child has a daily diary that goes home with them each day and they also have a personal profile book which has photographs of what they have been doing and their development. I believe in having a home that children will feel safe, happy and relaxed in, i have set routines which children settle into well and it also helps them feel secure and settled. Children in my care definitely become part of the family and we all help and look after each other.
I have over 20 years experience with children of all ages from new born to teenagers, i trained and worked as a nanny until i had my own two children and i then became a childminder. I was also a police officer for approx five years.
