Quality care for your child with a registered childminder in a home environment.

Before and after school care of school aged children. The children in my care all attend Golden Valley School, and so the toys and activities are all appropriate for primary age children. I can also offer temporary care, drop in care (where there is availability).

I work in partnership with parents and families, sharing information and progress and recognising the prime role parents play in their children’s upbringing.

After school, the children love to play together, creating games and using their wonderful imagination. They enjoy playing with the kitchen, playing shops, dressing up, building with Lego, Duplo or Playmobil and lots of books, puzzles and games. As we are a small group, the children have my full attention.

During the settling-in period in Reception, generally the first 3 weeks of the new school year in September, I am able to help with the dropping off at school and picking up after school.

Do you need short term childcare whilst your child is finding their feet moving from Year 6 at Primary School to Year 7 at Secondary School? Alternatively, do you need just a few days childcare when your normal carer is on holiday or ill, perhaps I can help? Give me a ring on 01275 541057/07879 423013 or e-mail to see if I can help.

I have been a Registered Childminder for over 22 years.

I have Public Liability insurance, as required.  I hold a current Paediatric First Aid certificate and a Safeguarding certificate, which are updated every 3 years.

Ofsted inspected in January 2018, where I met all their requirements and the Ofsted Inspector said “the children who come here are very lucky!””.

For many years I was a parent helper/member of the PTA at my boys’ primary school, I then became a Parent Governor there.
