Personal Details

I have been registered as an Ofsted registered childminder since October 2010, graded Outstanding by Ofsted in my last two inspections.

I live in the pretty village of West Peckham, just outside Hadlow and Mereworth, a two-minute drive from Seven Mile Lane and the A26 – giving easy access to Kings Hill, Maidstone, Tonbridge and the surrounding area.  The village is surrounded by woodland, countryside and farms, and offers a pretty (and well used by us) village green.  All providing excellent resources for daily outdoor activities and learning.

I live with my partner, my son born in 2006 and daughter born in 2009.  We have a good sized enclosed rear garden with slides, bikes, trikes and numerous other resources, with plenty of room for the children to run around.

I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, promoting each child’s individual needs and interests, with plenty of indoor and outdoor toys and activities.

Typical Weekly Activities

During the week we attend Childminding groups and regularly meet up with other Childminders to interact and form friendships with other children of similar ages.  We enjoy a wide range of age-related activities to include play, story time, singing, messy play, play dough, arts & crafts, sand & water, gardening, etc.  Each child is allowed to develop their own interests at their individual stage of development.

I believe outdoor play is very important and much of our time is spend outside, either in the garden, or on regular visits to parks, woods, farms, National Trust, etc.
