Gillian Allen

I am an Ofsted registered childminder living in Shildon with my husband and 2 children.

I have been childminding for 15 years, firstly on a part time basis whilst also volunteering as a helper in a local primary school and running a messy play group and now on a full time basis. 

I have a Foundation Degree in Early Years as well as up to date First Aid and Safeguarding training. I offer a vast range of exciting activities covering all ages and devlopmental stages of all the children I care for.

During term time we also regularly go on outings to local museums and parks and in the school holidays we visit many National Trust parks for fun days out.

I have experience of caring for children that have both additional needs and specific dietary needs.
