Rachel Ann Lovett

Setting open.

Ofsted Register - Rated Good, £5.75 per hr (includes food, nappies and outings). Available for 2 and 3 year old funding. I can look after children from birth to school age. I pick up and from St John’s CofE Primary and Alfred Sutton Primary in Reading. This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.

As a childminder I strive to provide a warm and caring home environment. Each child I welcome into my home is given care and understanding. I work with parents to give each child I look after the best opportunity to play, learn and to have fun. I work alongside an assistant and we work to be active in the community and spend time at toddler groups, local libraries, museums and parks. We encourage children to have fun, be active and to respect each other. Each child We care for is considered an individual and we work to meet each child's specific needs. I have two children of my own a 18 year old daughter and a 9 year old son. 

I took up childminding after the birth of my son, and find it a rich and rewarding career.  I have a wealth of experience caring for young children. Not only have I been a mum , I have been childminding for 8 years. I am also one of the eldest of seven brothers and sisters and I have also raised my own two children and have gain a wealth of experience from them. My assistant is a mother of two boys and has years of experience looking after them and children in her wider family. 

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
