Ms Samantha De Vilder

I am a very experienced childminder who has been Ofsted registered since 1988. I provide a home from home, stimulating environment with oodles of love, praise, cuddles, laughter and fun!

I take the children in my care on various outings, including Putney Heath, Wimbledon Common, two local libraries, playgroups and parks.

Although registered to mind for four children, I have never minded more than two full-time children at a time, as I wish to offer good quality, individual care. I've kept in contact with all of the children I have cared for and loved over the years, and they very often come over to stay. I regard them all as members of my family, and feel blessed that they regard me in the same way.

For the past 6 plus years, I've been minding an amazing little boy (Ollie), whose mother and auntie, I took care of when they were babies/toddlers. I cared for Christopher (my beefcake!) from 6 months old, to 11 1/2 years old; a whole 11 years! Jess is the first child I minded when registered. I cared for, and loved her,  from a tiny 7 week old baby.  She is now a wonderful 27 year old, who I love as a daughter/little sister/best friend!  She was a bridesmaid at my son's (David) wedding three years ago.

I have many references, and parents, past and present, are available to email or phone for their views of my childminding setting.
