About Me

I have 2 grown up children, 1 has left home and the other is at university and only comes home at uni breaks. I live in the High Meadows area of Whitehaven. I have been childminding for 20 years and have seen alot of changes in childminding over the years and I have been able to adapt to these changes very well and have always been able to gets good to outstanding grades during my years as a childminder, my last inspection I received an Outstanding (2018). I offer a home caring environment which is warm and welcoming in a safe & stimulating environment. My home is pet and smoke free zone. I'm very approachable to what the parents are requiring for their children. I'm a car owner and we go off for day trips or able to go to parks either by walking or by car, nature reserves which are local . Before Covid we went to soft plays, playgroups and went on the bus and train - this will restart when I feel it is safe to do so.

The children are all welcomed and we follow the EYFS which is given to you on a regularly as well as news letter and additional information to keep us all upto date on your child's progress whilst within my setting. Photos are sent via Whatsapp, e-mail to parents so they can see what there child is doing along side the EYFS folder?

Reference are available if required

My Experience

20years plus experience of working with children with a variety of needs and socialising requirements. I aim to encourage the children within the setting on the basis of Confidance, Communication, Co-ordination, Concentration, Competance, Co-operation & Creativity in my home.

I have worked in the past with Sure Start Howgill before they were taken over. I have a child through social services on respite at present, I have many years experience working with children with additional needs and have completed many training and seminars on a variety of requirements.

My last Ofsted inspection was in 2018 and I received an Outstanding,
