My Vision

Providing an environment that is safe, fun and inspiring; where all children are exceptional.

My Setting

We enjoy lots of creative and child led activities as well as free play.

I have a selection of toys, books, games, puzzles and dressing up items as well as play dough crafts, arts and musical instruments.

I have a secure garden where children can enjoy the outdoor environment; I have ride on toys, ball games, hoops, climbing frame with slide, skipping ropes and much more.

I have a Wii, X Box and PS3; play is agreed with parents beforehand. I also attend local play groups where children can take part in activities.

Children should be given the best possible start in life and I like to work closely with parents to meet their child’s individual needs.

I believe in providing a safe and welcoming environment for children so that they may feel at home. Children also need time to relax and are able to do so either by reading a book or watching a short film.

Fantastic Childcare!

Lyndsay has been a fantastic childminder to my daughter who was 11 months old when she started. I cannot fault the care that she has received. Lyndsay has helped my daughter develop in every way and kept track of everything so that I could see what fun she was having without me! She has been flexible when I have needed it and always did everything that I asked her to do as well as offering me lots of invaluable advice if I asked. My daughter has had so much fun during the 11 months that she was there and she loved Lyndsay and her family (including Hettie the dog!). We will miss her a lot.

Lyndsay, Superb

A lovely homely environment, which is just what I wanted.
Lyndsay was my sons full-time (8.30am-5.30pm) childminder from January 2012 to August 2012, the only reason she is no longer his childminder is because we moved away from the area.
Lyndsay did lots of activities with him and he was always beaming from ear to ear telling me about all the fun he had been having during his day
Lyndsay kept me very informed and sent the odd picture to me of him whilst I was at work, which was always nice to see.
I would recommend Lyndsay to anyone.
She was great with all the children in her care and treated them all as equals.
The most important thing for me was that my son was happy and felt secure whilst I was not there and I know that he was with Lyndsay.

Fantastic, friendly, fun care in a family environment

Lyndsay has childminded my son since he was 9 months old and my 6 year old daughter, after school, since September 2012. I've always been more than happy with everything Lyndsay does with my children. She has been there for our son to help him develop into a happy, friendly little boy, Lyndsay mirrors what I am doing at home with him, currently potty training and he has come on with it so much, which I credit Lyndsay for. Both of my children have settled in with Lyndsay and been happy in her care from day one! I'm so lucky to have Lyndsay as a childminder, both children flourish with her, I know they're happy and having fun with her when they ask if it's a "Lyndsay Day" on a Saturday! From fun days in the house to exploring days in the woods, all of the activities that Lyndsay does with the children help them to develop, without them realising, which is a fantastic quality she possesses. She's friendly, fair, fun and fabulous!
