General Details

I am an Ofsted registered childminder and I have recently been awarded an outstanding grading for an inspection that took place in September 2017. All of my compulsory training is up to date as are my thoughts and values towards childminding. I am able to be quite flexible with the care i provide and am happy to discuss unusual patterns of care. I am happy to work with children and families with additional requirements whenever possible. I have a wide range of toys and activites on offer and am happy to take the children on trips and outings. I have a relaxed attitude to how children learn and am happy for the children to experience free play and will try to adapt to their different requests during the time they are in my care. I do try my best to keep the fees and costs that i charge down and am happy for children to come with their own food etc. If we go out i will occasionally need to ask for additional moneys to cover admision fees which can occur with the older children during holiday care. I really enjoy my work as a childminder and so far the families i work with seem very happy so please contact me and we can discuss your childcare needs.

As from September2017 I also offer the free 30 hours childcare offered by the government for those parents that qualify.
