About MeMy name is Lorraine and i am 41 years old, I live with my husband Steve and children Sarah 17 and Charlie 8. My older sons are 24 and 23.
We live in Mount Gould next to Tothill Park.
My home environment is warm and welcoming to children and parents/carers. It is safe and secure with space organised and used to promote childrens development.
I live in a large spacious house with a big garden for outdoor activities. I have recently opened up an extra room downstairs and turned it into a wonderful playroom where the children have access to toys, role play, arts and crafts etc.
We also have the front room and dining room where we can have quiet time
I look after children of all ages from birth up to teens.
I can be flexible with any of your childcare needs, if I haven't mentioned on here what you are looking for then please contact me to see if I can help.
I aim to provide a loving home from home while your child learns and plays.I have been a Childminder since November 2010 and I have had plenty of experience with my own children and also minding children.
We have plenty of activities indoors and outdoors to do, such as painting ,baking, reading,dancing,arts and crafts and many many more.
For the little ones I aim to let them play with activities aimed at their ages and abilities. I work within the EYFS framework.
