About Lorraine Smitham

Thanks for clicking! My name is Lorraine Smitham and I qualified as a Norland Nanny with an NNEB in 1996 and have worked full time in childcare ever since. I live near St James church in Glossop with my husband Mark and our son Andrew (Born in 2005). The house is strictly non-smoking and has an enclosed rear garden with play equipment and a vegetable patch, which has been designed with children in mind. Inside the house I offer many activities including arts & crafts, reading, music and stimulating toys. We enjoy toddler groups, music groups, trips to the park, occasional days out & lots more. Activities are carefully planned to be as rewarding for each child as possible, taking into account their differing ages and abilities. This child-centred approach means that themes are explored and discovered in a fun and exciting way. The children enjoy a healthy and well-balanced menu − often incorporating vegetables we have all helped to grow in the garden. This combined with lots of active play helps make the children in my care happy, healthy and confident − a great foundation for school and beyond!
