Any Other Notes

At my last inspection in July 2018, I was graded 'Good' with elements of 'Outstanding'.

Here's what the Ofsted inspector thought of my service:

 The experienced and knowledgeable childminder cares for children very well. She is in tune with their needs and they form close attachments to her. Children settle extremely well and develop high levels of confidence and self-esteem.

Children enjoy outdoor play and confidently explore the resources available to help extend their learning. For example, children demonstrate high levels of concentration as they carefully use tools to transfer coloured dye into bottles of water. They excitedly talk about the changes they can see.  The childminder uses quality observations to make accurate assessments of children's progress. She quickly monitors gaps in children's learning and shares these with parents, who are encouraged to support their children's learning at home.

 The childminder works effectively with other settings that children attend.

Children who speak English as an additional language are extremely well supported and have plenty of opportunities to use their home language in their chosen play.


The childminder uses evaluation effectively. She identifies weaknesses in her setting and makes positive changes to improve the environment. For example, she considers children's emotional development and provides cosy, safe areas for them.

I can offer funded care for 2-4 yearols (universal and 30 hours) and also accept employers vouchers.
