I live with my husband Lewis, daughter Ella who is 5 and son Hayden who is 2 years old. We have a cat called Tiggy, 2 rabbits named Lily and Benjamin and Squeak the guinea pig. We live in a lovely 3 bedroom detached house with an enclosed garden which surrounds the property. We have been locals to Castle Cary since 2007 and I attended Ansford Secondary school. My daughter attends Castle Cary primary school where I currently help with reading on a voluntary basis.

I am a bubbly, friendly person, I consider myself to be kind and caring and love working with children. Since moving into our current house I have not had a lot of spare time as we have slowly been renovating it but any spare time I do have I enjoy spending time with my family and a wide variety of sports.

I have worked in childcare for 3 years as well as having my own personal experience for nearly 5 years. My previous employment was as a nursery assistant in a nursery setting during which I undertook and passed my Level 3 Diploma in Childcare. To enable me to continue doing the job I love, furthering my career in childcare, I set up my own Childminding business.

I have to drop off and collect my daughter from Castle Cary primary school so unfortunately I am unable to offer school runs for anywhere other than here.

My business hours are from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday. I do not work on bank holidays.

I am open throughout the year apart from holidays. Term Time only is available and inset days are negotiable.

Please contact me for further information. I look forward to your call.

SameDifference Dance

We run historical dance events across the South West: classes in several locations, private parties such as wedding dances, workshops or talks for school and community groups, and special events in historic buildings, e.g. Barrington Court and Montacute House (National Trust).

Classes are run using mostly CDs; for other events we call on live performers with Early Music expertise. Dances from around 1450 to 1850 are researched from original sources such as the Willoughby manuscript (Somerset Heritage Centre) and taught in a lively inclusive style. Tutors are qualified by national bodies including The Historical Dance Society.

SameDifference also runs music sessions for adults with multiple disabilities, and their friends, family & carers, across Somerset and neighbouring areas. The nearest regular work of this sort is Wincanton and Bruton, but the intention is to start advertising soon in the Castle Cary area.

Classes and special events in English Historical Dance: mediaeval to Regency. Every fourth Thursday in Market House Dance Studio, 1930h-2130h. All ages and abilities welcome.
