Naturally, the quality of your child's care is paramount. When it comes to their health & safety, their education, and their happiness, it's vital that you feel completely confident in the quality ofthe care they receive. That's why here at Banana Bunch Childcare, I seek to nurture members of our little bunch through compassion, patience and encouragement, helping them to develop the essential life skills they'll need to see them through to adulthood.
I am registered to care for no more than 5 children under 8 years; of these, not more than 3 may be under 5 years, and of these, not more than 2 may be under 1 year at any one time. I am alsoregistered to provide overnight care for 1 child from birth to 5 years. I have passed all Ofsted Inspections, (rating GOOD and an area of outstanding practice awarded for methods of sharing information with parents).
Being a working mum it was important for me to get a balance of multiple roles - but overall I wanted my daughter to be safe whilst I was working. I was unable to find a nursery that I liked andtrusted so became a nanny (or child minder).Whilst nannying I was always dropping off children to various schools and playgroups and I soon realised the huge demand for 0-3's nurseries that no-one was catering for.
LiTtLe AnGeLs Day Care Nursery is a small, intimate, warm, caring and family-friendly children's nursery based in the centre of Brighton and Hove. It is situated in the residential area of WhitethornDrive, Withdean, Brighton. The nursery can register children from 3 months - 5 years of age. The number of staff employed will mean that the staff: child ratio will more than meet the requirements laid down by Ofsted. We offer both part-time and full-time sessions.
A little info on myself (Rachel) and Sylvia: I had been working as a nanny in the Fiveways area for 3 years prior to opening the nursery and had built up close relationships with parents and earnedmyself a professional reputation for good quality and fun childcare as a nanny and babysitter. I had worked in nursery settings for 8 years before I decided to start nannying, some of these settings I helped manage.
I believe my strength as a Brighton childminder is to develop warm and affectionate relationships with the children. I have been a Brighton Childminder for 20 years and this has given me a wealth ofexperience. I encourage the development of children in all areas of Early Years through a relaxed, homely, but stimulating environment. We go to local playgroups, museums and Sea Life Centre. I look after a wide age range of children, which benefits all ages as they interact together.

It was nearly seven years before we started that we first discussed the possibility of setting up a nursery. So it was with great satisfaction and excitement that finally in June 2004 we opened thedoors to our first children. It seems a long time ago now, but we can still remember the road to The Wishing Tree being a very long journey, punctuated by many challenges, not the least of which was finding the right premises and staff.
