Samantha Cornwell

In March 2020 I set up as an Ofsted registered childminder after working in nurseries for 16 + years. I am a married mother of two and we live in a detached cottage in the village of Cowbit. We moved to Cowbit in 2016 and have since renovated our house. This includes a purpose built play room with en-suite and a separate bedroom for children to sleep. We have a large enclosed rear garden which includes areas such as ‘the beach’ and the ‘outdoor kitchen’.
I provide home from home childcare in a safe and relaxed environment. We go on regular trips out to explore the real world at least once a week and regularly attend groups. We also attend forest school every Wednesday. 

I have over 16 years experience working with children aged from birth to 5 years with some experience of working with older children.
Extensive experience and knowledge of the Early Years Foundation stage.
Previous experience includes working with children aged 0-5 years, nursery manager, EYFS Coordinator and lead professional, Special Educational needs and disabilities, safeguarding officer and team leader.
