Catherine Orford

Having retired from teaching after almost 40 years of working with young children, mainly in nursery and reception classes. I decided to become a childminder, so was registered with OFSTED in October 2013

I am widowed with 3 grown up children and live in Alkrington, 5 minutes walk from St. Michels and St. Thomas More RC primary schools.  I provide a safe and stimulating environment based on the needs of the child as an individual.  I have a spacious downstairs area and large secure garden which is well resourced for play and learning both indoors and outdoors.

With all facilities on one level, I can cater for some additional needs.  I enjoy concentrating on the needs of a small number of children instead of a whole class.  I like to be able to get out and about to local groups and using all the local area has to offer so I go out most days.

I have experience of working with children with additional needs and children for whom english is an additional language.
