I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder (graded 'good') working from my home in Marsh Gibbon. We have a small Jack-a-doodle dog, who is very friendly and good with children. We also have a 2 cats, 3 ducks and 2 chickens. We have a spacious fully enclosed and safe garden in which the children love to play. I take the children out for regular walks and trips to the playground in our lovely village.

I will ensure that at Butterflies Childminding all children will be viewed as unique individuals. I will use observations to plan the next stages of your child's development. I aim to work closely with parents to identify any concerns. My bathroom is downstairs and therefore fully accessible to children who require specialist equipment. There is no step at the front door and only 1 small one at the back. The garden is completely flat.
