Hello, I'm a highly experienced childminder and I offer a realiable and trustworthy childcare service with emphasis on fun and learning.
I am educated to degree level and I've dedicated my career to childcare. I love working with children and I'm passionate about Early Years education. I have been a registered childminder since 2000 and I have enjoyed many wonderful moments caring for all the children that have joined our extended family.
I live in a 3 bedroom house with a garden that has been adapted as a playroom, situated 5 minutes from Caledonion Road tube station, with my 2 children, aged 21 and 14. I have a little dog that is very good with the children.
I provide lots of fun and educational experiences to delight and inspire your child to become the best they can be and to complement the activities they enjoy with you at home.
I plan and structure our week with lots of opportunities for your child to enjoy themselves and develop and grow in a relaxed and friendly environment.
I have a wide range of toys and educational resources including a well stocked reading area, a home corner, games and puzzles, and every week I set up trays with activities that will engage your child and nurture their interests.
Outdoor play is crucial for children's development therefore, every week, your child will enjoy walks to the local parks and messy play in the woods.
We attend local playgroups and story sessions in the library every week, so your child has opportunity to mix with a bigger group of children and develop their social skills.
To enrich your child's experience in my setting, we frequently go to the London Zoo, Museums, farms and soft play centres.
I provide the children with a healthy diet of home cooked meals and introduce them to a variety of foods.
I use daily diaries to keep you informed about your child's day. I also use an online system where I put all the information related to the setting and your child including development trackers, permission forms and invoices.
Every week I send photos of your child having fun in the setting on WhatsApp and I make a profile book with photos and art work that is yours to keep when your child leaves the setting.

My childminding setting welcomes children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and I am committed to working with parents and other professionals to provide good inclusive practice. My Islington Area SENCO provides me with support, advice and training regarding children with SEND. Parents are encouraged to speak to me about the needs of their child in order to assess and plan what is required.
