I am an OFSTED registered childminder, with a 'Good' grading from OFSTED. I'm CRB checked and fully insured and located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the Tyldesley/ Astley area close to the V1/2 bus service, with my partner of 20 years Ian, Holly my 14-year-old daughter, and Bella our 3-year-old Cavapoo dog. I am an organized and conscientious individual who strives to provide a professional and flexible service that meets both children's and parents' needs.
I provide a safe, caring, healthy, stimulating learning environment for children to grow and develop. Your child will be encouraged to learn and develop through fun activities planned to suit their individual developmental stage. I look after small numbers of children ensuring your child gets the one-to-one attention they need. I am happy to work with parents so children get individual care tailored to suit them.
I have a spacious home where children can access a wide range of age-appropriate toys and fun activities relating to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum including role play, dress-up, crafts, puzzles, drawings, play-doh, reading, singing, and dancing. I also have a secure garden where children can play with toys including a playhouse, kitchen, slide, messy play, sand & water table, and ride-on toys.
I regularly visit the children's center to access a variety of activities plus local parks, libraries, toddler groups, soft play areas, and nature activities.
I have experience in childcare from birth to 5 years in the Early Years Foundation Stage age group and have cared for twins and can provide occasional baby sitting services for children already in my care.

Below are the latest reviews for Louise. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
From day one, Charlie has felt incrediblely settled.
Louise's communication and enthusiasm is fantastic and she has created a home from home setting; helping us feel relaxed while Charlie is in her care.
Charlie enjoys her mornings and, with Louise's support, has transitioned quickly from breakfast club to a much earlier start and new routine.
She has flexible hours to suit our working needs and is conveniently located for commuting into Manchester.
I wouldn't hesitate recommending Louise for any family!
When we were looking for childcare for our 8 month old Daughter we were naturally nervous and looked at several options with varying degrees of trepidation....I can honestly say the moment we stepped into Louise's house we knew instantly that she was the one. To entrust the most precious thing you have to a relative stranger is a HUGE decision and a terrible wrench for any parent but we just knew. She did not just provide the love and care that we wanted but with her dedication, creativity and sheer hard work, she ensured that our daughter learned in countless ways. They were constantly visiting a variety of fun places and taking part in activities that were educational and developing her social skills. The progress she made from 8 months to almost 5 years whilst in Louise's care was amazing. I am a Teacher myself and my partner also works in education so we are probably quite demanding in terms of what we expected but Louise absolutely smashed it. We always felt that our daughter was part of her family and we have remained good friends since she progressed to full time Schooling, in fact our Daughter still goes to Louise during School holidays, not because we need her to, but because she WANTS to....and that is perhaps the best recommendation of all. If you are looking for quality childcare it doesn't come any better than this.
Our little boy Jan, now two, has been in Louise's care since the age of 8 months and he loved every single day of it. She is not only a very experienced childminder who beautifully balances educational play and having fun (lots of it in the fresh air), but is also very loving and caring, and really gave Jan a second home. I felt at ease the minute I met her. She made the whole process of getting back to work and settling Jan into a new routine so easy, she was very supportive. She's always been there for us, going often the extra mile. We feel very fortunate to have had her looking after Jan. She is an absolute star, I would highly recommend her!
Louise has been looking after my daughter Phoebe since she was 4 she is now nearly 9! Phoebe loves going to Louises house, her day is always fun packed and adventurous. Louise provides excellent care and I can’t fault her. Her home is very clean and tidy and everyday is planned to perfection.All communication is great, I go to work stress and worry free knowing my child is in excellent hands. Would fully recommend
Louise has been my daughter's child minder for a few years now. She is extremly well organised, friendly and has a lovely family. My daughter loves going to her and is very happy there. I have no worries at all knowing Louise is caring for my child. She does so much with the kids, they're never sat in front of the tv it's always off out somewhere and doing stuff to keep their minds occupied. She really is amazing.
