Suvi Riipivaara

Coronavirus status: OPEN

I have been a childminder since 2013 and have a level 3 qualification in early years. Prior to becoming a childminder I was a nanny for 16 years so I have lots of experience in looking after children of all ages. I am very proactive with the children in my care and we do lots of outings and trips, as well as various activities at home.

My home is child friendly with a safe and stimulating garden. I have a good variety of indoor and outdoor toys and resources. We visit the local children’s centres weekly for stay and play sessions, and also love trips to the farm, library, soft play, parks etc. 

I currently only care for under 5’s so can’t offer school drop offs and pick ups. I am open Monday to Thursday.
