About Me

Passionate, dedicated childminder in North Cheam
Loving Home environment.

Based at North Cheam crossroads on the 213, 151 & 93 bus routes and situated between Worcester park and cheam train stations we are easily assessable.
Parking is available in the cul de sac.
Welcome to Leah's Little'uns childminding services. I am an Ofsted registered childminder.
I understand that work commitments are hard so I will try and be as accommodating as I can when it comes to times.
I am open full time with the exception of 4 weeks holiday.
We are closed between 23rd December to the 2nd January inclusive. We are closed bank holidays.

All meals are Home Cooked. I hold a level 2 in catering and food hygiene.I accommodate allergies and personal requirements. I do ensure the children receive a healthy varied diet.

I have a great variety of resources to support your child’s learning. Both Child led and adult initiated. For all children in the early years I follow the EYFS guidelines. Outdoor play is available all years round. The more puddles the better! I provide structured activities throughout the day and for wrap around school care. This include messy play, arts and crafts, an extremely large selection of toys that are rotated weekly, daily outings, parks, toddler groups, and libraries, the list is endless.

I do also understand that older children may have homework and I will happily support them with this. I am also aware that they do appreciate some down time after school where they can chill and relax!

All the children in my care are recognised as individuals and I thrive to ensure that their needs are met. I make a point of being able to work closely with parents to support both the child with any problems and the family. Each full time child will have a learning journey file showing evidence of their progress and achievements.

I have a full clean driving license and provide suitable car seats from birth upwards. I have buggies, highchairs and travel cots.

My son has ASD and Leah was so patient with him. He was a very big challenge and she helped us all through a difficult time.

Her setting is perfect for any child of any age. She is imaginative, creative and always ready with bundles of fun.

They have a lovely dog Jenko and our sons loved playing with him.

Couldn’t recommend Leah enough, she is fantastic

Response by Leahs littleuns on 28/02/2020:

Thank you xx

Leah has a lovely family of her own, and makes your little one feel a part of that. Her strong values and sense of family definitely pull through to all that she does.
The kids are encouraged to explore, grow and become independent. I love that Leah gets them out and about, whether it is to Nonsuch park for a stroll or picnic, or local playgroups. There is always something exciting on the go, with crafts and activities too.
Leah is accommodating and goes above and beyond to help out where she can.
Would not hesitate to recommend Leahs littleuns.

Leah looked after our daughter from the age of 8 months. Her warm, caring approach meant I felt very comfortable leaving my daughter and confident she felt safe and happy throughout the day. She enjoyed trips out, creative activities at home like arts and crafts and baking and plenty of messy play.
Leah is very encouraging and promotes good behaviour and kindness in a firm but fair way.
I would whole heartedly recommend Leah's childminding service!

Leah looked after both of my children until we moved away from the area. She provided a safe and loving home environment for them and they were always happy to go to, so much so that they never wanted to leave! My children were so sad to leave Leah and her family when we moved!
The variety of activities available was always engaging and during the summer she took the children on great day trips.
I would not hesitate to recommend Leah as a childminder. She never let us down and was always happy to try and accommodate last minute requests.

Leah looked after my son and daughter for several years. Leah was caring and always went the extra mile to make my two children feel at home in her care. She took them on exciting outings and planned engaging activities for them. My son was an incredibly fussy eater and she helped him eat a wider variety of foods.
I would certainly recommend Leah to anyone looking for a caring and nurturing childminder.
