About me: I am a very experienced childminder, with an "outstanding" Ofsted grading since 2007, offering childcare from my home near Nailsea. I am dedicated to providing the best "tailor made" care for children in a warm and loving home environment. I have plenty of space available for the children to play, learn and relax in including: an education room,a lounge, two playrooms, a dining area, a large garden and two rooms upstairs.

I have been a registered childminder since 2001 and have experience of working with children of all ages. Parents say that I am "a kind, caring, knowledgeable, professional carer." "She demonstrates a genuine passion for her work but more importantly for the children in her care.”.

I live with my husband, also a registered childminder (my husband also has "outstanding" Ofsted reports since 2007 ), and our 7 children. Our eldest adult daughters are registered childminding assistants; they have plenty of experience of working with children.

We live in a large detached home in a lovely, safe, cul-de-sac near Nailsea. Ofsted described our home premises as follows "The accommodation, resources and equipment are of a consistently high quality, very well managed, and organised. Outcomes for children are clearly attributable to the excellent use of resources.”

Children and their families are my first priority and this has been noted by Ofsted "Partnerships with parents are highly effective in meeting the needs of children” “Together (the childminders) they provide rich, varied and imaginative experiences that meet the needs of all children very well.” Parents think that our childminding service is "excellent" "good value" "fantastic". Parents say that we “work hard to understand each child and work to their strengths and enjoyment”, they have said “we like your friendly and approachable style”, we feel that our child is very safe and happy in their care”

Our home is full of toys, my Ofsted report states that "Children freely self-select from a very good range of very carefully prepared resources and specific learning materials.” . Parents think the choice of toys and activities are "varied, educational, fun and well-organised".

Our focus is on individualised quality childcare with our aim to help each child reach their full potential through stimulating activities and discussions. We look forward to hearing from you.
