About Me

Having retired from teaching in July 2013 , after almost 40 years of working with young children., mainly in Reception and Nursery Classes. I decided to become a childminder. I was registered by Ofsted in Oct 2013
I have 3 grown up children. I live in Alkrington five minutes walk from St Michael's CE Primary and St Thomas More RC Primary. I really enjoy concentrating on the needs of a small number of children instead of a whole class. Providing a safe stimulating environment centred on the needs of the child as an individual. I have a spacious downstairs area and large secure garden which is well resourced for play and learning both indoors and outdoors. I enjoy being able to get out and about to local groups, and using all our local area has to offer, so we go somewhere most days.
I currently have a full or part time place for one child under five and also have availability for dropping off and or collecting from St Thomas More. I am excited about this stage in my life and now just need some more little ones to come and share the adventure..

My Experience

I have worked in primary schools all my working life. Most of my recent experience is with Foundation Stage children. I have experience of working with a wide range of additional needs, having been responsible for Special Needs and Inclusion. Since beginning childminding in 2013 I have cared for babies from 4/5 months.
