About me: I have been an OFSTED registered Childminder for over ten years. In November 2010 I was graded Outstanding for the second consecutive time. I am an Early Years Entitled Childminder, which means that from the term after your child is three you may claim 15 hours per week funded childcare from me. I am also registered to accept two year old funding. I have four children, aged 22, 15, 14 and 11. I live in Cotford St Luke with my three youngest children in a spacious home with a fully enclosed rear garden.

I live a very active life and also enjoy eating out and running.

I offer a professional and secure, yet warm, loving, friendly, bright and fun environment for children aged 0 - 12 years. We participate in a huge range of stimulating activities both in and out of the home. I have countless scrapbooks of photographs showing a wide variety of what I do with the children which you will be more than welcome to see if you come to visit me, together with my portfolio which includes policies and procedures, risk assessments and references.
