All About Me

I attend regular baby and toddler groups in and around the local community.  I also attend weekly stay and play sessions which from past experience, children really enjoy  as they socialise with children of different ages from other childminding settings.


Furthermore, as I can drive and own a 7-seater car, we will visit local attractions such as farms, the Yorkshire Ice-cream Parlour, Soft-play Centres and local Parks, building on children's Physical Developmental skills, one of the areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

As a Professional Childminder, I;

ü       am fully registered with Ofsted

ü      have been graded "OUTSTANDING"  by Ofsted in August 2014

ü        hold a current child paediatrics first aid 3-year qualification

ü       have a Diploma in Homebased Childcare, Levels 1 and 2 and passed exams as set out by National Childminding Association (NCMA) ((now PACEY))

ü hold an NVQ Level 6 qualification in Childcare, Learning & Development (minimum Level 3 required to work with children)

ü        have graduated from University achieving a BA in Early Years and Young Children's Learning and Development

ü         have passed an enhanced Criminal Record Bureau Check

ü         am Nursery Education Funded providing 15-hours of free childcare for children aged 2-4 years

I attend regular workshops, training courses and refresher programmes to ensure I am kept fully up to date with the latest childcare methods and to further my qualifications and experience within the childcare profession.

I am insured by PACEY and hold a full public liability insurance certificate. I meet all of the compulsory requirements set out as a Childminder and am inspected by Ofsted.

My home is child friendly and has various safety features, meeting Fire Services Regulations. I provide the children with a safe, hygienic and stimulating environment.


I work very closely with parents to develop an open and trusting relationship to ensure your child will enjoy their time with me which is reassuring for you. It is extremely important to us to have a good relationship with your child and a close working relationship with you.

So why did I decide to become a Childminder?

After having my first child in 2008, I quickly realised I didn't want to return back to work at the end of my maternity leave as my priorities had changed.  As a new family, I couldn't afford to stop working to be a full-time, stay at home Mummy and so I decided to look into becoming a registered childminder instead. 


I really enjoyed the whole process of training and gained lots of new childminding friends along the way of whom we see regularly.  I arrange play-dates for the children so that they can socialise with children of different ages and I can honestly say I've not yet looked back but then again, who would when you do a job like mine?
