I offer ‘30 hours’ childcare for working parents’ and '15 hours Play and Learn sessions.

I am a highly qualified and skilled Childminder located in Burnhope, County Durham. I live with my husband and three children.

I have a BA Hons degree in Supporting Children in Education, and Early Years Professional Status and 20 years’ experience working with children. I also have experience in working with children who have special educational needs.

I skilfully support children’s learning, provide stimulating activities and present children with high levels of challenge that helps each child make some superb rates of progress.

I have Paediatric First Aid, Enhanced DBS.

I provide care for breakfast and after school club, day care and holiday club (bank holidays and weekends and later times are available by prior arrangement), in a safe, secure educational home environment.

This home environment will help your child develop before taking the bigger steps to school. Due to the smaller ratios I work to, means your child will receive more of a one to one care.  This will make them exceptionally well prepared with the skills and knowledge they require for when they start school/nursery.

Meals, local toddler groups, local soft play, and trips out to farms the seaside etc are all provided at no extra cost.

I have a large front garden and a purpose built area at the rear of my house for the children to play in. Children have access to the whole ground floor of my home. In the surrounding areas there are two parks and lovely walks, including adventures in the woods.
