I provide a safe and exciting environment for children to play, learn and develop, ensuring all children will enjoy a positive and happy experience whilst in my care.
I am extremely passionate about what I do and confident that all children are made to feel part of our family.
Initially I started childminding to help manage my work & family life more effectively, but I'm happy to say it's the best decision I have made career-wise - the most satisfying job I've ever had!
I currently care for children between the ages of 6 months to 12 years old, both boys and girls.

I'm so glad i found Natalie when looking for childcare for my son after school. Natalie is extremely caring, friendly and has made sure my son was happy and settled every time i dropped him off. She as made us both feel like part of the family. Natalie provides a large variety of activities and walks/ outings, Natalie has been so thoughtful in acknowledging special days like Birthdays, Easter, Halloween and Christmas. she has been flexible and been able to accommodate us when it’s school holidays. I truly do recommend Natalie to anyone looking for childcare.
Natalie looked after my girls for a few years after school and during half terms and holidays whilst they were at junior school.
She always had fun activities planned for them, making learning fun, giving them valuable experiences that they have taken with them and now look back with fond memories.
We have remained in contact even though my girls don’t attend her setting anymore. They still get excited whenever I say we’re going to meet up with her!
I’d definitely recommend Natalie to anyone who is looking for childcare or someone trustworthy and reliable to take good care of their little one.
On par with the other reviews, Natalie is an excellent childminder, in her home and outside. She keeps the childs mind active with all sorts of activities. My story with Natalie begins where I had been looking for someone for odd hours and odd days. Many people enquired to my add, but it was one day here or there. My daughter is 7 and as we were visiting the UK on a working-holiday, I needed care for the days I worked, as I could not get her into the local school either. Natalie did not usually mind on one of the particular days I required, but for our short stay she agreed to. Natalie said she agreed as she had been stuck in the past and knew how this felt. This was perfect for my daughter, as I was not having her at different carers throughout the week. My daughter who is a tough critic was absolutely enthralled with Natalie. My impression of Natalie, was, she has a bubbly personality with common sense, and it would be hard not to like her. Thank you Natalie for coming to my rescue, all children are very precious and I had total piece of mind and could focus on my work. Thank you for agreeing to do those days that you keep for other personal admin. Another childminder asked Juliet what she thought of you and there was no hesitation with a thumbs up from her.
After moving back to Swindon from Portsmouth I did struggle to find a childminder that had space for two children under 3. I found Nat but I was a bit apprehensive as my son always cried when dropping him off to his previous childminder in Portsmouth. After his first session I couldn’t even get a goodbye from him as he would run straight in and was so settled!!
Nat has been absolutely amazing with both my children but I had to put my son into preschool and will be taking my daughter to the nursery where he goes from January which we’re all really sad about, both kids love Nat to pieces and my son was gutted when he realised he wasn’t going to her anymore.
I honestly can’t recommend her enough, she always done either days out or some sort of activities which they didn’t get with their previous childminder so thank you so much for all you’ve done with my two, they really will/do miss you.
Natalie looked after my 2 children when I returned to work after my second child. At the time my son had just turned 2 and my daughter was 8 months. I had struggled to find a childminder that my son would settle with and was quite concerned after a bad experience with another childminder Evonne Burch. Both my children warmed to Natalie instantly and there were never any tears at drop off times and at pick up's they never wanted to leave. My daughter has special needs as she had meningitis at birth and has some brain damage and scarring. Natalie was patient with her and was great at working with her to help her reach her milestones. Natalie did fun things with them and educational learning activities and they both progressed well in her care. Due to my daughters poor start in life it was always going to be hard leaving her but using Natalie made it so much more bearable, knowing that they were both happy and being so well looked after.
My son has since started nursery and after 9 months still has not settled well yet he settled almost instantly with Natalie and still asks now to go there instead.
I gave up work after a year as felt my daughter would benefit from more time with me and both children missed Natalie terribly and despite my daughter only being just over a year and a half or so at the time a year on she still remembers Natalie and gets very excited at hearing her name or seeing her.
I have recently returned to work part time and did not hesitate using Natalie again and the children are loving going there again.
