I have been a registered childminder for less than a year, but I had my son 5 years ago, and have cared for my nieces and nephews for years prior to becoming registered. I love children everything about being a childminder. I love watching the children that I care for grow, mature and learn, just as I have loved watching my own son. I love the fact that I can be a part of contributing to the brilliant people that these children grow into. I look after 6 children at the minute, aged between 10 months and 7 years.
