We are a mother and daughter childminding team, based on Bannerbrook Park.
I am Ofsted registered, CRB checked, and a member of National Childminding Association
Whilst providing excellent childcare, We also deliver the EYFS to a high standard (Early Years Foundation Stage - Statutory framework for children under 5)
My name is Melissa..
My Mum's name is Linda and she lives just round the corner, but comes to my house every morning, where we childmind from my setting.
We do lots of activities in the day time... groups, Soft play area's parks, days out.. Arts and Crafts, cooking, garden play, messy play and many more.
I have a house full with enough toys and games to keep any child amused, while also teaching them various life skills!
I pride myself on running a happy home and hope you will feel completely comfortable leaving your child in my care.
I have lots of experience with children as mum was a childminder while I was growing up, also owning her own childcare setting as well.
I did all my work experience at the setting, and then went on to work with her at the childcare setting for many years. After leaving on maternity leave I then decided to follow in her footsteps, and become a childminder myself!
During my time at work I came across all different characters and personalities of children and learnt first and foremost that each is an individual, and will have different wants and needs - I believe I can cater for this within my setting, and make your child feel very welcome and happy in my care from the get go!
I have an 8 year old boy myself.
We have lots of experience with new borns and babies as most of the children who have been I our care have started very young..
Between us we have over 30 years experience in the childcare sector.
