About Me

I live in Alnwick in a semi-detatched house with a very large rear garden, near to all amenities and have been childminding since 1988. I am a qualified nurse and married and have six children. Most of my children have now left home. I do not smoke and have two very well behaved cockapoos and both are fantastic with all children. I love children and cannot imagine what my day would be like if i did not have any little ones around me. I love arts and crafts and enjoy sharing this with the children.I live near to the park and other childrens activities.We regularly attend sing along sessions and story time at the library. My hobbies include crafts and i used to perform and taught dance lessons. Please ring me if you wish for any further information available . Information packs are available upon request.

My Experience

I am ofsted registered and have completed my NVQ level three in childcare,learning and development. I currently work to the Early Years Foundation Stage and completed up to date training in First Aid and Child Protection (completed designated person training) I am also a qualified State enrolled nurse.I have over 32 years experience in working with children as a childminder. I have a level one in Health and Safety and my City and Guilds level 2 in Health and Safety and skin care and recently completed inclusion training.I hold a clean current driving licence. I regularly attend the locality network meetings with local nurseries, schools and other childcare establishments to maintain a good level of communication between all settings to enable good transitions for children from my setting to nursery or school. I attend regular training sessions throughout the year and these cover all aspects of childcare.
I currently hold an Ofsted grade of Grade one -Outstanding.
