A little bit about me

My name is Marlotte and I am an Ofsted registered childminder.

I am from The Netherlands, where I completed my nursing degree. When I first moved to the UK I worked as a private nanny in London for several years, before starting my career as a children’s nurse. I have been working as a children’s nurse in the UK since 2011 and through this experience I have built up my knowledge of caring for children. I now have 2 small children of my own, who have shown me that nourishing children’s development is where my passion lies. This has led me to change my career back to full time childcare and early years education.

My setting is our family home. I live with my husband David, my son Lucan and my daughter Flore. Our home is located in Childrey, a small rural village close to Wantage, Oxfordshire. Including our large garden there are a plethora of resources and opportunities for the children to learn, discover and develop.

What I offer

  • A happy, caring, safe and secure environment
  • A family orientated “home from home” atmosphere in a quiet rural village
  • Stimulating activities planned to the needs and interests of each individual child


As is the government guideline, I will be following the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) to plan for, observe and assess all the children in my care. It is my intention to allow the children free and easy access to all toys and equipment that they would like to use throughout the day. I will observe and assess the children, after which I can plan adult led activities as well as adapt the toys on offer to guide them through the next steps in their development.
