Hello, I'm Tor!
Hi, my name is Tor. I have been working with children for 17 years, in every childcare section you can think of from nursery to mothers help and a camp supervisor to a nanny. I now run my own childminding business from home, so the child feel as if they are in their home enviroment, but gain the stimulation and learning that they get from a nursery. I am also happy to babysit in the children's homes in the evening as well as feeling confidant and happy around different animals
I have an up to date first aid and training as well as keeping up with the latest developments in childcare.

Tor was a childminder for our daughter from when she was about 1 year until she was 3 and a half. Tor was simply brilliant with her. Tor is professional, flexible, energetic and kind. She adapted to suit our daughter's changing needs as she started pre-school and our work schedule. I cannot recommend Tor highly enough.
Tor has looked after my children on and off over the past 5 years. She is their ‘favourite’ babysitter.
Its not always an easy task getting a 5, 4, and a 2-year-old into bed but Tor manages it with ease, she is consistent with them and they respond well to her.
Tor has a wealth of knowledge regarding children, I know I can go to her with a concern or question about my child and she will be able to give me helpful advice or more often than not just reassurance.
She is kind and caring and you can see she has a real love and understanding for children of all ages.
I always feel confident and relaxed when I leave them in her very capable hands.
Tor has looked after our, now 18 month old, son for the past 9 months. He goes to her 3 days a week and absolutely loves her - he stretches out his arms to her when she opens the door in the morning!
Tor is very professional, safety-conscious, practical and knowledgeable about childcare, but also firm-but-fair, fun and extremely caring with the children she looks after. She is Montessori trained, so the children do lots of different activities with her, both inside and outside, and she cooks well-balanced meals for them, taking care to observe food allergies/intolerances where necessary.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tor as a babysitter or childminder.
Tor has looked after my daughter for over a year now. She’s been fantastic the day we put our daughter in her hands of care. She’s extremely thoughtful, professional, caring and understanding. She’s always got full of ideas to help my daughter as she has sensory processing disorder and speech delay. I can’t think of any negatives to say. I don’t worry about my daughter when she’s in the hands of Tor. My daughter is always happy to go to Tor. Once quoted and repeated on every pick up and drop off from my daughter ‘Elli happy!’ Tor not just helps the physical needs of a child she helps their self esteem. My daughter is blossoming beautifully because of the care Tor provides. Highly recommend!
I always feel my son is in very safe hands and really enjoys his time with Tor. As you would expect, her first priority is safety, then personal development and then that the child has fun. She has a great knack of laying and maintaining boundaries gently but consistently. She instinctively relates to and builds rapport with children. Her 16 years of childcare work and Montessori qualifications means her manner and methods are backed by solid knowledge and experience. I need to declare that Tor is my sister and now that we don't live nearby, it's impossible to find a babysitter / child minder that can compare to her!
