Ofsted registered childminder who loves to get out and about. I do not home educate but happily take care of children of all ages and work alongside the parents and child’s needs
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 have been a registered childminder for 5 years and have just taken the plunge in home educating our children. I have various spaces starting in september.
I am an ex primary school teacher, now an Ofsted registered childminder. I offer a home from home service to children from birth to teens. I aim to provide a relaxed, caring environment for children to develop and learn. I carefully plan each day and regularly take children on trips and outings in order for them to experience a wide range of activities geared towards their own interests and developmental needs. I pride myself in treating every child as I do my own, welcoming them warmly into my home and family.
I have been child minding since 2012 and home educating since 2017. We have a very relaxed and child led environment to learning and enjoy much time outside, especially at our allotment.
I am paediatric first aid trained, Ofsted registered, good hygiene certified, child protection certified.
