My name is Claire and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I have been working in the childcare sector for about 15 years and have hands on experience in a wide variety of roles. I started mychildcare training at a well known established day nursery and over my years in the industry I worked for two national nurseries and worked hard to become a fully qualified room manager, managing 4 staff and up to 20 children at any one time.

Toddler Time was created in 2005 to provide a fun introduction to music and movement. Over the years hundreds of babies and toddlers have had loads of fun bopping along to my unique mix of songs,games and props. I love to watch the children wiggle and giggle they don't realise just how much they are learning as they play. Why not come and have some fun with your little one, pop along and join us at a session new faces are always welcome.
