I am an experienced Childminder, graded Outstanding by Ofsted. We live in the village of Finstock near Charlbury and Witney.

We have two sons who attend Enstone Primary School and a 3 year old daughter. 

My setting focuses on Early Years children, allowing me to offer an excellent service and great experience for the little ones without the disruption which can be caused by older children in a typical before and after school care environment.

My homely environment will come with my own 7 and 9 year olds after school. My children are very used to sharing their home with other children and relish the interaction, resulting in a great dynamic and experience for younger children who will benefit from socialisation with children of all ages. We attend both indoor and outdoor Toddler groups, singng groups and play dates with children who are similar aged to the children in my care to allow social skills to develop further.


I provide a safe, warm and fun environment so that children can thrive and feel at home here during their minded hours.
We have a very wide range of resources and large inviting garden full of opportunities to explore. I love to take the children out on local trips to Cogges Farm, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cotswold Farm Park and Blenheim Palace amongst other destinations and enjoy sharing the experiences with them. I use good quality safe equipment to transport and keep children safe. I only purchase car seats and pushchairs from new and make sure all my equipment is clean, safe and up to date.
