Karen Lisa Brown

I have been a registered childminder for over 6 years. I live in the Hopwood, Heywood area. I have 2 boys aged 18 and 16.  

I have worked within the childcare profession for over 14 years. I previously worked in an outstanding school in Heywood for over 7 years. I trained as a teaching assistant and developed my skills. I have supported children during this time with various special educational needs. I decided to take a leap to become a childminder and have not regretted my decision one bit. I love my job and I gain so much from working with the children.

How it works

I passionately believe children learn best when they are cared for and feel happy and secure. Within my setting I will offer lots of fun activities including baking, arts and crafts, den building, reading stories, singing with puppets, learning about understanding of the world when being out in the garden planting seeds and enjoying the sensory area. Alongside this, I will support their learning needs through phonics and numbers and building on their skills for them to thrive. 

Alongside our daily activities we also access lots of children's centres, visits to the libraries for story time and arts and crafts, play centres, parks and farms. We also enjoy visiting Eureka, cinema, local fire and police station visits, Pets at home and petting farms and lots more.
