|Our names are Lydia & Dale and we offer a childminding service named A home to Grow from our lovely 4 bedroom home in St Johns Wood, Marylebone, Westminster, London NW8.
We are both fully registered, trained and qualified OFSTED childminders and have both been individually awarded the highest rating OUTSTANDING. We have recent First Aid, Food Hygiene and Child Protection certificates. We are also both members of the National Childminding Association and we have public liability insurance for up to 12 children.
We have many years experience of working in schools, nurseries and various children's charities. We absolutely love working with children of all ages and believe we offer an environment that reflects this, full of fun, active and educational activities.
We have two lovely, well behaved daughters aged thirteen years and ten years old, two cats and a lovely little Yorkshire Terrier which create a warm and friendly home life.
We have adapted our townhouse to contain a learning nursery room, lounge for rest, dining area and a safe back garden. We have lots of resources for all age groups including a sand pit, book corner, play house, activity sheets, toys, games and baby equipment (i.e. high chair, jungle mat, cot, steriliser, bottle warmer and baby toys).
We provide weekly emails containing photos so parents can see what we have been doing and how happy their children are and for children under 4 we complete daily logs for all activities they have done, food they have eaten, sleeps they have had, nappy changes and any comments we have on their development or something cute they did or said.
