Sally Cole

My name is Sally Cole and I have been a Registered Childminder for 26 years and am dedicated to providing the best possible care to all the children in my setting. I live in North Tonbridge with my husband and our 2 cats.

I started childminding part time when my daughters were little and also worked at Plaxtol Nursery School part time for 6 years.  While there I gained my Childcare qualification and attained the position of Deputy. Once my daughters were at Secondary School I had the opportunity to childmind full time and have done so ever since.

I worked as a PA for some years until leaving to start my family.  I have two daughters, the eldest is 30 and works in the Police and the youngest is 27 and is a qualified Veterinary  Nurse. I also have 2 step sons who are 27 and 25. They are all grown up and have left home.  

I have a lovely conservatory playroom, full of toys for children of all ages and a nice enclosed garden, again with lots of toys.

I have lots of hobbies and enjoy entertaining family and friends, art and craft, music and theatre, gardening, reading, going out to National Trust properties and air shows.
