I am an Ofsted Registered childminder living in Maidstone, very near the town centre. I am originally from South Africa and my family is Portuguese. I have been working as a childminder since August 2011 and have previously worked as an Au Pair in the USA and have done regular babysitting for friends and family. I have also completed my Level 3 Childcare Diploma.
