I offer ‘30 hours childcare for working parents’ in partnership with other childcare in my area.

I am a Childminder located in Bridgehill, Consett and have been childminding since 2007. I live with my husband and two children - Jack, aged 21 has been in the Army for 3 years and Leah, aged 16 is starting college to become a Nurse

We have a lovely playroom with lots of activities.  

I follow Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and children who attend my setting feel like it's home from home. We go to toddlers' groups, parks and many other places.
