Victoria Elizabeth Tuck

My name is Victoria Tuck. I provide home from home childcare from my house on the East Cliff of Folkestone. I live in a quiet cul-de-sac, within short walking distance to parks, the beach and many toddler groups.


I have three children ages 10, 7 and 3. For most of my career I was biochemist working in London, with a degree in Biochemistry and pharmacology. I went back to work when my eldest was 9 months old, and then left to become a full time stay at home mum when she was 18 months old. I understand the need for outstanding reliable childcare, and balancing work/home life as a busy working mum. I also understand the stresses involved when childcare falls through, therefore I aim to provide continuous care for as long as you need, birth to secondary school. My aim is to make any transition as smooth and worry free for you and your family. Whilst wildly different from my career in science, I absolutely love being a Childminder, and pushing my dream of a successful home-based childcare business. My passion is literacy, science and messy play. The schedule of the day will work to suit your child’s individual needs.
