Robina Burke

Hello, I have been a registered childminder for 20 years, and I love it. I have a lovely smoke free home with toys to suit all ages. I am friendy, flexible, and reliable.  I have a large back garden with lots of outdoors toys and I go out for lots off walks with the children to the park where we pretend that we are going on a bear hunt or looking for mini beasts.

I drop off and pick up from St Cuthberts and Ladybarn schools.
The hours I work are as follows: 7am - 6pm Monday - Friday, however I am willing to do overtime and unsociable hours with notice.  This includes 1 day at the weekend, overnight care or on an as and when needed basis.

We are a family who love dogs.  We have 2 the dogs that are very friendly and lovable.  My 16 month old grandson climbs all over them and loves it.

The dogs are kept out of the area where the children play unless you specify that your children are ok with dogs and are happy to be in the same room.

I also have an African grey parrot called Monty who is a bit of a chatterbox and the children love talking to him and listening to see if he repeats what they say.

My childminding business isn't a nursery, it is a home from home experience where your children will get to meet all their developmental milestones in a fun, caring, and safe environment.

I've had children that have come to me as babies and I've watched and helped them grow, to then the proud moments when I see them go to high school is priceless and exactly why I do this job.

If you would like any more information please contact me and I will get back to you.

Thanks for looking at my profile
