I was previously employed in a school setting for over 7 years. I have had experience of working in a school kitchen to working in a school office dealing with attendance and behaviour.

I also voluntarily helped in classrooms whilst my children were progressing through school.

"Trisha has looked after my little one now for 2 years and she never ceases to amaze me with her enthusiasm and love of children.


She is methodical too and records all progress in a journal for us to see each week. I highly recommend her to any parents she is an excellent childminder."

- S Lewis

I have a variety of toys and resources for children, depending on their age and development, including dressing up clothes and art and craft materials.


I also have a secure garden, which not only provides scope for outdoor play activities such as trampoline, slide, playhouse, scooters, dolls prams etc but also for investigating the natural world.

"Trisha is lovely and both my children love going to her childminding setting. It’s great being able to leave my children in such wonderful care and not have to worry. She does a great job and my kiddies hardly want to come home at the end of the day!”

- L Morris

Clear and consistent guidelines which are made understandable to each child's own developmental level are so important to children because it gives them a sense of what behaviour is acceptable and what is not.


• All children are encouraged to play together nicely.

• All children to respect each others feelings.

• Good manners are encouraged at all times.

• Impolite or rude use of language is not acceptable.

• Respect for toys and equipment is always encouraged.

• Good positive behaviour is always rewarded with smiles, praise or hugs.
