My name is Helen and I have been child minding since 2005, before that I was a Product Manager in a marketing company.
I have two girls of my own, Alex and Issie born in 1999 and 2001. I have used nurseries and childminders myself before I took the decision to change career path and register as a childminder, I therefore understand how stressful it is to go out to work with little ones to care for and try to alleviate that stress for you, as parents, as much as possible.
At my last inspection I was given 'Outstanding' in all areas which I was really pleased about.
My setting has been granted the West Sussex PAT mark award for inclusive practice which I am very proud of. I am also a support childminder, helping newly registered childminders start their own business.

We live in a residential road on the Eastern side of Horsham, convenient for town and station and park, in a semi-detached house with a large garden and purpose built playhouse and have a budgie as our pet! My husband works for Thales in Crawley and is normally around for the crazy times of dropping off and picking up! He is also registered as my assistant so can help me out from time to time.
