I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and a qualified Early Years Teacher. I have taught in local Abingdon schools and primary schools in London.
I have 3 children (9, 5, 3), the youngest of which will be with me whilst I care for your child. We have lots of fun together during our days whilst the eldest children are at school. Usually we go to a variety of baby and toddler groups in Abingdon. We also walk to the local playgrounds and feed the ducks at the park. Sometimes we go to the library to read books or for Rhyme Time. Occasionally we take trips away from Abingdon such as Millets Farm, Nature Tots at Sutton Courtenay Environmental Centre, Gymnastics stay & play sessions or toddler groups in surrounding villages to occupy our mornings. We have lunch at home, followed by nap or quiet time before heading out again on the school run. Usually we are back home by 4pm. I have a 7 seater car and can accommodate children should a school pick-up be needed for other siblings (also at Europa school).
I have a warm and welcoming home with a large, clean and inviting space where I will care for your child. There is direct access to the outdoors for free-flow play, there is also a variety of resources for all the different ages & stages. My home is near OLA school in Abingdon.
Past teaching/childcare roles: I worked as a part-time nanny & babysitter in various London locations such as Notting Hill, Chelsea and Knightsbridge. My part-time nanny role required me to look after a 2 year old during the day and then his siblings in the evening, I did this for for 2 years.
I have Qualified Teacher Status and over 7 years classroom experience. I have worked with children from the ages of 4 - 7, from Reception through to Year 2. I also have the experience of having my own 3 children!
I am CRB checked, I have Public Liability Insurance & my car is insured for Business to enable me to transport your child.
