I am an Ofsted registered childminder living on Cherwell Heights in Banbury. I have 2 grown up children aged 31 and 29 and started my childminding career 24 years ago when my children were young. I have a vast experience of caring for children of all ages from babies right through to teenagers.

I aim to offer a home from home environment with lots of opportunities for fun and learning with stimulating activities, outings and experiences. Children have access to a wide range of toys, sensory and arts and crafts activities. As well as indoor and outdoor activities at home, younger children are taken on outings to soft play, play parks and toddler groups.

As well as being able to offer funded places for younger children I am able to drop off and pick up from Chasewell Playgroup, Kingsfield Nursery and Saltway Nursery should this be required.

I also do school runs to and from The Grange Community Primary School and St. John's Roman Catholic Primary School, which are both 5 minutes’ walk from my home.
