Childminder with 26 years' experience.  Current Paediatric First Aid certificate; Specialist & Designated Lead Safeguarding. Experience of Type 1 Diabetes and Asthma.

Home based childcarer providing a secure, caring and nurturing environment to enable all children to grow, learn and develop independence. Very large selection of toys, books and resources.  Good sized garden.  We make regular visits to various parks, the duck pond, indoor play areas, toddler groups and I also have regular contact with other childminders. I have use of a car.  We drop and collect children at Kings Meadow School each day so this prepares young children for the transition to school in due course.
