I live in Henley-on-Thames with my partner, our 3 children (aged 12, 10 and 7 years old) and our Bassett Hound. I've been an Ofsted Registered Childminder for 6 years.  I am DBS Checked and First Aid trained.  I offer child care Mondays - Fridays all year round for children aged 0 - 12 years old.

Having used childminders and nurseries myself, I understand how difficult it can be choosing the best childcare for your precious little ones.  My emphasis is to provide an environment where children feel happy, relaxed and safe.  I can offer a stimulating environment and give children the oppertunity to have fun while being creative and developing their minds and body through various activities such as:

Playing - Role play, puzzles, play dough and lots of other fun and educational toys.

Reading

Painting and drawing, arts and crafts

Baking

Playing musical instruments

Dancing and exercising to music

Garden fun - Digging, growing, water and sand play as well as bikes, cars, scooters, climbing frame to practice and develop children's physical skills.

We regularly visit various local playgrounds, soft play and toddler groups.
