Mrs Linda Smith

I have been childminding for 17 years and have brought up 3 children of my own. I have a spacious house with a front garden and patio which wraps around the house. I like to spend as much time outside as possible (weather permitting) and I like to go for walks to the parks in Larksmead, Shillingstone or Pimperne or through the Bryanston woods. I regularly attend toddler groups in Pimperne and Tarrant Keynston. I have an annual pass from for Farmer Palmers near Poole and usually go several times a month. I enjoy many and varied art activities with my children and encourage communication and interactions with others.
