I am an Outstanding Ofsted registered childminder, who has over 20 years of experience in early years and childcare. I have two children of my own aged 24 and 21years of age.
NVQ level 3 in childcare and education; Current paediatric first aid certificate; Specialist safeguarding and other relevant qualifications.

I live in a rural area, surrounded by beautiful countryside.  I have a large outside play area full with trees and natural resources that is full of surprises.  I have 2 pet dogs, rabbits and a horse.

I offer a warm, caring, friendly environment within my family home for children to grow and develop safely, to feel valued and respected.

I am passionate about developing and nurturing children and believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn and achieve.

I have the relevant up to date qualifications and certificates along with over 20 years of experience and knowledge within the EYFS.
