Catherine Marsay (Over the Rainbow Childminding)

My name is Catherine Marsay and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder in Billingham. I am passionate about providing every child in my care the opportunity to not only reach their full potential, but also to experience a warm, loving, home-from-home environment. I live with my husband, 4 year old daughter and 1 year old son in a quiet, friendly cul-de-sac. Both myself and my husband hold enhanced DBS (police) checks and I am qualified in paediatric first aid.

We are non-smokers, don't have any pets and I have my own spacious seven-seater car which covered for business usse so I can accommodate school runs and outings.

The layout of our home has been changed to accommodate my childminding setting. I have a playroom which opens out onto our enclosed, secure back garden. The playroom is light and airy with lots of space to move about in, get the toys out, and carry out various activities. We have a laminated hallway which the children have access to which is great for activities such as playing with cars and rolling balls. There is a downstairs toilet and sink, children have access to this and is equipped with a step so smaller children can reach the toilet and sink, and a toddler seat if required. Children are allowed in the kitchen but only when I am closely supervising. The back garden is enclosed and secure. The back gate leads onto our driveway and to our garage. The children don't have access to the garage and will only leave the back gate to go to my car.

There are toys and learning resources for children of all ages to help them learn and develop whilst having lots of fun in a welcoming, home-from-home environment. I provide before and afterschool care for schools in Billingham (St. John's and possiby Billingham South), full day childcare and also play sessions for parents who may require emergency car or 'as-and-when' needed.
