Coronavirus status: CLOSED

Childminder located in Cheddington in the District of Aylesbury Vale. I am a qualified Childminder with 26 years of childcare experience. I offer a friendly home from home environment, with exciting and educational toys and activities. Your children are free to explore the playroom and garden, giving them many opportunities to make their own choices.

I have a varied range of books, puzzles, games, toys, and provide activities such as music and singing with instruments, building dens and hideouts, messy play, painting, playdough, cooking, planting and gardening, craft activities and outdoor play with sports equipment, bikes, ride ons, tents and tunnels, water and sand play and mud, spaghetti and pasta play.

Together we enjoy making indoor and outdoor role play areas such as greengrocers, multicultural restaurants and cafes and various shops.

During the week we visit toddler groups, parks, woods, library, music groups and occasionally go on day trips to various places including farms, the airport, the pick your own farm, as well as regularly meeting up with other Childminders.

I work closely alongside parents to ensure that all your child's needs are met, and my overall aim is to care for your children to the best of my ability, whilst providing somewhere fun and fulfilling for your children to enjoy.

I am qualified with a Level 3 NNEB diploma, which I bought up to date with an Early Years Foundation Stage qualification. I began my childcare career in a day nursery, then 15 years of Nannying and now Childminding since 2006. I live with my husband and two sons aged 16 and 12 years.

Will cater for all dietary and religious requirements.

Local Offer


I offer an inclusive practice, and all children welcomed into my setting. I strive to give any child within my setting with SEN or disabilities, as much help and support as I can. I will work closely with parents to ensure that all the child's individual needs are met as well as being a part of the parents support network. I will seek advice and support that will help me provide the best possible care for your child. Activities will be adapted to ensure all children are able to take part, and therefore encouraging their confidence and independence. I will record your child's learning and development in a Learning Journey, documenting milestones and goals that they achieve and monitoring their progress.

I am not able to offer one to one care as I also have responsibility for other minded children within my setting.

I do not have wheelchair access to my property. The  property is on ground level, and both front and back gardens are relatively flat.
