About Me

Spaces Available - Little Ridge School Runs -Near Conquest Hospital.-----------

My name is Lisa I am the mum of two daughters (aged 21 and 16) and I have been a childminder for 13 years. I started to childmind because I couldn't find any child care I was happy with for my youngest daughter so I decided to create what I was looking for.

I have experience with all ages and abilities and my parents have always stayed with me for as long as they need childcare so my environment is very stable. One of the greatest thrills for me is seeing the children grow and learn, I plan my days around their individual needs and always allow them to develop through differentiated activities that often coincide with seasonal and cultural events and I use the early years framework. In everything we do they learn how to share, be kind and work together, I give them clear boundaries and this means we all have a great time. However sometimes my planning goes out the window because children will be children so I also give them the opportunity to lead what they want to do and I listen attentively to what parents want for their child so I can support them too.

My home is set up for lots of outdoor play, messy play and imaginative games. I am constantly developing new activities and toys to keep them interested. I can't say much more than I absolutely love what I do and each child always brings something new to me, since becoming a childminder I have never looked back. I have all the qualifications to meet OFSTED standards, listed below, and welcome any queries you may have.

We are incredibly grateful to Lisa for all that she has done and continues to do for our son and us. She is an outstanding childminder as well as a true credit and role model for her profession. I fully trust Lisa to care for my child and I am completely confident that he is thriving in her care. I have never had any cause for concern in the entire time that he has been with her. My son, who was incredibly shy and quiet, has really come out of his shell since being with Lisa and it is abundantly clear that he enjoys his time with her.

The last year has been very challenging for us as parents due to our areas of concern with our son's development. Lisa has been instrumental in making this time much easier, by not only providing us with her continued support & understanding, but also the detailed feedback on her experiences with him. Lisa’s dedication to supporting my son is evident in all that she does for him and us.

We highly recommend Lisa; she is a kind, caring and brilliant childminder.

I cannot thank or recommend lisa enough, She looked after my nephew for approx 6 yrs, during primary school, he initially had quite a few issues due to the circumstances that he came to live with me, Lisa supported not only him thru these times, but me as well. I don't think I would have been able to cope with working and looking after him if it wasn't for her help and support over the years. I felt happy that when i left my nephew in her care, he would be happy and have fun. Lisa always had a range of activities to keep him busy, be it crafts, arts, garden games, and cooking was especially a favourite! Lisa always seems to make thing fun, and my nephew would always be coming home with something he'd made or learnt to do! He build a very strong relationship with Lisa and her family over the years and trusted them enough to open up about his past which was a major step for him. Lisa was always open and constructive with any feeback she gave me, as my newphew could be hard work at times, she would always keep me informed of this or if she thought he was struggling/worrying about something. My nephew is now at secondary school and he still has a strong relationship with Lisa, she has been a massive support over the years and I know I would have been lost without her and my nephew wouldn't be as happy and confident as he is now if it wasn't for her help over the years.

Lisa has been my childminder for 5 years now. She has looked after my two children and I really can't imagine a better level of care. My son who is 5 started with her at 6 months until he was 4 and he still goes to her on INSET days. My daughter who is two started at just 5 months.

Lisa has been amazing with them both. The things she thinks of doing and the care and imagination she puts into her activities just astounds me. She is a natural with children and babies, she has the ability to instinctively know what they need and what is going to interest them and bring them on.

Her communication is fantastic , I always look forward to hearing what they have been up to. In the years she has looked after my two i have watched them grow and respond and just be happy little people. I really couldn't have managed with out her. Going to work full time and knowing that they are in the best possible hands doing things I could never offer them is just a great feeling.

If you need a childminder who cares but is not intrusive, who children adore, who stimulates and preempts their needs you really don't have to look any further. She is simply the best.

Lisa is childminder to my 2 children, she has looked after my daughter for 5 years , she is now 10, and has had my son for a year and a half, hes only 2 . To say I am happy with the care and attention that Lisa gives my children, day after day is an understatement, they have so much fun and she teaches them new things everyday. She lets them explore new things, and helps them to understand the rights and the wrongs. My 2 come home with cakes, pictures, ornaments that they have made, they always have big smiles on there faces, and look forward to seeing Lisa every time. Lisa has so many toys and paints and stickers and glitter, the choice of things to keep them happy is great.
I am so happy that I have found someone that looks after my children, cares for them and makes them happy, whilst I am at work. Lisa updates me at the end of the day to tell me what they have done learnt, ect and how they have been. The communication between Lisa and myself is constant, i know exactly how there day has been, and how they have been too :)
