  • Type: Childminder
  • Available: All Year


My intention with my childminding service is to provide a `home from home’. I understand how important it is for parents to feel that they are leaving their child with someone who will care for them, stimulate and teach them, and provide fun activities. They will also want their child to feel at home, safe and secure, in a place where they feel that their child’s interests are being taken into account, not somewhere where they just have to `fit in’ with whatever is going on around them.

Special educational needs and disabilites information

All early years providers should make their policy and provision for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is published in the providers SEN information report. You can find this providers SEN information report here.

If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions around the providers SEN provision you should contact the provider directly.
