I am an EY Practitioner who owns a setting in North Worle, near to the Walford Ave area.
I have lived in Somerset for 19 years, having moved here from Cheshire.
I worked for 15 years in Retail Management before deciding to become a childminder, to help support my own children whilst working from home. Now they are both grown up I can dedicate time to help other children grow and develop.
Having used EY practitioners before for my own children I know what its like to juggle being a working mum /dad so I have experience from both sides of the coin and know that flexibility is important as well as the standard of care.
