Childminder Assistant Job

About Me

I am an outstanding experienced Childminder and I work with my assistant(s) in a purpose built, fully resourced setting, within my home and offer core values of learn, play and explore.

I have a cabin in the garden which the children use as well as a playroom in the house. In addition to this, I have a large enclosed garden for the children to play and explore in. We care for children from 0-11 years of age and I provide a safe caring and stimulating environment for the children using as many natural resources as possible.

I have looked after children from all backgrounds and provided the perfect preparation for them to be ready for the next step of their education at School.

I am married and have three daughters and two sons, the schools I pick up from are Adel Primary School and Adel St John’s Primary School.

I provide all meals and snacks which are home cooked, healthy and consider the balanced choices you may wish to include in your child’s diet.

I offer and have FEEE places available for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

I have lots of recommendations, reviews and testimonies from parents who have placed their children with me.

Please contact me to have a chat and discuss your own individual requirements.

My Experience

I have been childminding for nearly 18 years and before this I worked in nurseries in the local area.

My Availability

Dragonflies provides a great setting for your child, when my son attended he loved the various rooms and activities Lisa would put on. Some days they were based in the huge purpose built cabin, some in the house and in summer in the large contained garden. Lisa has many years childminding experience and this comes across in her manner with the children. She was flexible and able to work to my required schedule. I would recommend dragonflies over any nursery you won’t be disappointed.

My children have been going to this setting for 18 months. They love going and have gained so much. The setting offers fantastic facilities and opportunities for social interactions without being a large nursery.
The children engage with a wide range of activities and this is communicated well to parents.
I have no hesitations in recommending this setting.

My son (3 years old) has been going to Lisa's for nearly 6 months now. I am so happy that we've found Dragonflies. Lisa is very good with children and she is quite flexible too.

Will recommend Dragonflies!!
