I am a registered childminder offering care for children from 3 months to 12 years. I offer a setting where children are valued and encouraged. I provide opportunities for learning in a relaxed friendly atmosphere with an emphasis on imagination and the outdoors
I am an Ofsted registered Childminder based in Braintree, Essex, living with my husband and two young children (aged 1 and 3). I am able to accommodate children of all ages including those whom are home educated, and can work with parents to provide learning opportunities to suit individual interests and needs.
I previously volunteered as a teaching assistant for several primary schools whilst working full time for Kent Police in a civilian role, providing the opportunity to discover how much I enjoy working with children. Although I enjoyed volunteering as a teaching assistant I wanted the freedom to be my own boss and to explore different approaches in how best to assist children in reaching their full potential. I therefore decided to become a childminder, and hope to expand my services to tutor children primary school aged and below.
My aim is to provide a safe, caring, ‘home from home’, inclusive environment for children and to provide stimulating activities to support their continued learning and development. My setting is fully equipped to care for children, including a wide range of toys, books, puzzles, games and opportunities for both adult led and child led play. We have a tee-pee, play kitchen, table and chairs for children to use, play mats for young babies and a large garden for children to enjoy with a wide selection of garden toys and opportunities for outdoor play. Children will also have the opportunity to grow their own fruit and veg in our new vegetable patch and use their produce to assist in creating their own meals.
In addition to the learning opportunities I can provide within my home I am also within walking distance to many children’s groups including those held at the Carousel Children’s Centre in Braintree, Braintree Library and St Paul’s Church in Hay Lane South, Braintree. I also live close to Great Notley’s Country Park.
I have an extensive food and drink menu, catering for a wide range of dietary requirements, including vegetarians and vegans.

I am an ex IT Lecturer, now a Care Inspectorate Childminder in Inverness. I live in a large 3 bed-roomed house with a large garden. I would be delighted to have children come along and share in the experiences here at Messy Nessie Child Care for Home Education, it’s something that my present parents and I have discussed recently that they would like to provide.
I hold a full Paediatric First Aid Certificate, and attend all relevant training required by the Care Inspectorate and our local authority. I received 5’s across the board with the CI on my visit earlier this year.
I provide a compassionate, kind and engaging experience for your child and strive to ensure all children in my care feel comfortable and at ease. I have a dedicated soft play/sensory upstairs playroom and I also have a large outdoor area which is secure and fenced around, in order to provide the safest possible environment for the children and staff who attend my Childcare.
I have Full and Part Time vacancies available from 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. I offer care for children from birth to 16 years. I am also available for any additional requirements you have outside of the hours mentioned here.
I provide before and after school service for children local nurseries. Unfortunately I am unable to pick up and collect presently, however, I am looking for a suitable 7 seater vehicle so that I may provide this service.
I have a vast amount of experience working with children with specific requirements.
My setting is open five days a week and 50 weeks of the year. However I do occasionally work weekends which is by personal agreement only and not something I generally offer.
If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to discuss any requirements you may have that I are not covered above… or have a look at my website to see how I work with children in my care.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this…
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
