Because we have a small adult to child ratio, childminders are ideally placed to care for babies and under-2s, giving them the individual attention and attachment young children need. Caring for mixedage ranges also means brothers and sisters can be cared for together, making life easier for the whole family. And being with others of different ages helps children learn to work and play together.
Our aim is to provide a safe, stimulating and enjoyable environment which encourages children to grow into happy confident people. Our staff are professional, experienced and friendly and want thebest for all the children in their care. We hope that you will gain a good idea of what we have to offer by browsing through the website. If you would like to know more or request a brochure please contact us.
