Why am I qualified to support you?

>> Alongside my childminding, I have written a library of e-books for childminders and early years colleagues which are available from my Knutsford Childminding website.
>> I write for and admin the Childminding Forum: the biggest Childminder support network in the UK with over 28,000 members.
>> I offer one-to-one support and consultancy to Ofsted registered independent childminders across the country on the Childminding Forum and the Independent Childminders Facebook group.
>> I have re-trained as an early years trainer and I offer a one-to-one or group training service.
>> I write for Childcare.co.uk: the UK's largest childcare website.
>> I submit regular articles to Child Care magazine: part of Practical Pre-school.
>> I am the childminder representative for the North West on the local Ofsted Big Conversation.
>> I am well-known in the early years and childcare world and providers ask my advice every day! If I don't know the answer I have the contacts and information to find out.
What are my future plans?
>> I am available for training and consultancy in my local area of Cheshire east.
>> I will be offering training services in Trafford through Health and Safety Solutions Ltd and the Early Years Hub.
>> I am passionate about enabling childminders to stay independent of agencies and offering advice and support is part of this. I do not want any childminder to say they had a problem and were not supported.
