I have loved being childminder for over 23 years & always enjoy each day tailoring activities to each child’s individual needs to stimulate and encouraging them so they are having fun & they are learning as well.
I am an Ofsted Reg. Childminder working in a home from home environment in Ponsanooth.
I received an 'Outstanding' in my last Ofsted inspection in October 2015 and I aim to always improve, so I can offer the best service I can.
