About Me


I am an Ofsted registered, accredited OUTSTANDING Childminder (February 2018)

I have been working in childcare since 2000. After leaving school I went for some work experience at the local nursery and 10 years later I left to have my daughter! I made the decision to open my own childminding business Hazey Dayz Childminding so I could not only care for my daughter myself, but also carry on with my passion for working with children.

Along the years I have cared for hundreds of children varying in age from 4 months up to 8 years, children of different nationalities, ages, learning difficulties and special needs.

I am highly motivated, creative and passionate about making a difference to young children’s lives and encourage them to develop at their own pace. In any industry, experience is paramount to success!

Children are magical and never predictable. It’s the best job in the world and it’s a privilege to be trusted to be part of their world.

I ask for a £20 deposit to secure your child’s place at Hazey Dayz. This also covers their settling in visits. There will be 3 x 1-hour visits and 1 x 2-hour visit.  You will then be charged for a full day visit depending on what time you require your childcare place for.

  • I offer at least 2 short settling in sessions
  • I encourage parents to work out a ‘leaving routine’
  • Bring your child a comforter

School Runs

I currently offer a school run to Stocksbridge Nursery Infants School dropping children off at 8:45 and collecting them at 3:00. As it stands I don’t currently cover other schools in the area.

  • I have a long standing relationship with this school
  • I work with them to offer the same learning and themes

A daily routine gives children a sense of security. This is why I ensure each day is properly structured while leaving enough time for spontaneous activities.

  • No two days are the same,
  • Individual planning for each child
  • Educational activities in our daily plan

Fees & Payments

My fees are competitive with other local childminders, yet I am the ONLY childminding service in the area that has been graded OUTSTANDING by OFSTED and reflect the number of hours and the quality I put into my business.

  • All childcare vouchers are accepted
