Childminder
Coronavirus Support

Setting is open to offer childcare places to children of key workers and for vulnerable children.

General Details

I have been a childminder since 2002 and I am married with three young children. We live in a detached house with a large garden and playground. We have a wide variety of pets, which mainly live in the garden. We live near all the local amenities with two parks within easy walking distance. I have worked with children since my own children were small, helping out at their playgroups and their schools. I have worked at the local playschool as a pre-school assistant. I have attended many varied training courses and workshops for childminding and beaver/scout leader courses. The children in my care are offered a wide range of outings such as visits to the local toddler group, parks, activity play areas and the beach. I also offer a variety of arts and crafts activities for those rainy days.
