About Me

Three times rated Outstanding Registered Childminder with nearly 25 years experience.

I live with my husband and 1 of our grown-up children (3 no longer live at home) close to the St. John’s Estate area of Colchester. We have 2 small dogs and 3 guinea pigs.

I care for the children from a comfortable and bright, fully equipped cabin in our garden.

All children can choose and have fun with an extensive range of regularly cleaned toys, books, crafts and games.

Free-flow play between the cabin and garden is easily accessable for all children and the artificial grass enhances play suitability all year round.

Weekly outings in local area- Toddler groups, woods, library and parks.

Annual Go Banana’s Christmas party.

My Experience

I have completed many courses over the last 24 years of being a childminder. With having 4 children of my own, I understand some of the challenges a parent can face.

My Qualifications

Diploma in Home Based Childcare
Paediatric First Aid Level 3

5* Health and Hygiene rated

I am up-to-date on all required training and regularly access any courses I feel are relevant to developing my knowledge, working hard to keep up with current thinking in childcare.

My Availability

At present I work from 7.45~18.00 but can adjust this to meet your individual needs.

I take/collect children from Friars Grove Primary school.

School holiday places available.
