Miss Michelle Thorpe (Ravenswood Childcare)

Childminder

Hi, my name is Michelle. I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I have worked in childcare for 12 years and enjoy every minute of it. I have four children of my own, ranging in age from 14 to 22 years old. I work with another childminder, Kelly Mayne, and we have been friends for 10 years. We are both qualified and hold level 3 certificates in Childcare, learning and development, paediatric first aid, level 2 food hygiene and safeguarding children. We offer a relaxed, caring and safe home environment. We aim to work closely with parents to make sure we provide the best possible care for your children whilst in our care. We do lots of creative and messy play, we have a wide range of toys and spacious garden where children can have lots of fun and develop in all areas following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We have a weekly menu which is freshly prepared daily. We have a fully qualified assistant, which ensures that we are open 51 weeks of the year.
