I have been a registered childminder since 2009, and provide high quality child care in a safe and caring family home environment.
I am married and have two children, One at university and one secondary school and a small dog, who is well behaved and friendly, but never left unattended with the children in my care.
We live in Green Road which is ideally located if you travel in from the east of the island, but only a short detour from town if not!
There is a safe enclosed garden, with plenty of well maintained age/stage appropriate toys. Indoors is spacious, and I have a huge range of indoor toys and activities. We regularly spend time doing messy and sensory play activities such as painting, play do, water play, sand etc, and lots of age appropriate craft activities.
We go on outings most days to places such as the Zoo, local parks, beaches and woods, as well as attending a weekly toddler group. I regularly meet up with other childminder friends, which gives the children in our care an opportunity to socialise and make friends.
I have completed a wide range of CPD courses to increase my knowledge of child care issues and to keep my service up to date. This is in addition to the mandatory training required by Child Care Registration. My First Aid and Child Protection training are up to date, and renewed when required.

Gillian is registered to care for 6 children.
