I am an Ofsted registered Childminder and I live with my Husband Mike, my Son Ben 22 and our friendly Springer Spaniel dogs, Chloe and Sammy.

We live in non-smoking house in Abingdon, which is located close to ‘Outstanding’ primary schooling. It’s a great location for children as we have numerous parks close by, nature walks (Radley Lakes, BBont) and it’s only a bus/car ride away from the town and library.

Children have access to the living room (nap times), the kitchen diner which is used at meal times and some activities such as craft, baking etc and a fully stocked playroom, which opens directly on to a safe and enclosed back garden where children can use the water/sand, play equipment and enjoy other outdoor activities.

My aim is to provide parents with high quality childcare which is convenient, flexible and affordable and to provide your children with a ‘home from home’ environment, where they feel safe, secure, relaxed and enjoy their time here.

I plan activities to suit the age of the children in my care, whilst ensuring their individual educational needs are met in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

I offer full, part time and holiday places.

If your employer offers you childcare vouchers, I can except these. I also offer the 30 hour funded spaces.
