• Advice from Home Educators

    "Don't buy anything to begin with and just read. Have your child reading if they are ready to do so but at least read to them. Talk about everything with your child and be honest."

Home Ed Friendly Ofsted Registered Childminder with a small but friendly home just off of Coppins Road. I offer a home from home environment for up to 4 children under 7 with no regular school runs. I offer the free childcare hours for 2-4 year olds and am open 7 days a week with flexible hours.
I include breakfast (before 8am), home cooked hot lunch when we’re home (or a picnic when out) and two snacks in my fees. Dinner can be provided for a small charge. I am very used to catering to allergies and intolerances along with vegetarian and vegan diets.
I can offer care at weekends, occasional care and last minute/emergency care. I can be very flexible with hours and days including occasional childcare if you just need some time every few weeks.

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.

Please contact me if you wish to see a copy of my Childminder Prospectus which contains full details of my setting and the service I provide.
