Before contacting us can you please read the below privacy notice covering your data that is a requirement when a chald starts.
This Privacy Notice is written by Natalie Corless, owner of N&T's Little Einsteins. As a Childminder I am required to keep personal data for each child as set out by the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is for both contractual reasons and also for Emergency reasons. I am required to inform you of how I both process and store personal data in my setting.
The Information I Collect
In my setting I am mainly paper based and all records are stored securely within my home in a filing system. I do use a closed group for all news relating to my setting, and I use emails for invoices, policies and permissions. As childminders no unauthorised people have access to these records and any visitors to my setting sign in and will never be left alone with any confidential information. We Do have an accountant who deals with the invoices and has child's Name and hours attended. No other information is shared. Please refer to my policies for further information.
How I Use Your Data
Sometimes I may need to share information with other settings to ensure your child is getting the best possible and consistent care. However permission is sought for this. Major safeguarding concerns will be the only occasion I may need to share information without permission. Please see my safeguarding policy for further information. Mostly I use the data to enter into a legally binding contract with each family, and also to use in the event of an emergency.
I am covered by the ICO for using my mobile phone to make contact with you and to store your numbers and also to take photos of your child. Photos are deleted as soon as possible, usually by end of each month.
Once a child leaves my setting the only data I will keep will be the ones required by law, please see my GDPR Policy. You will take some data away with you and anything else non statutory can be destroyed at your request.
As a childminder I must adhere to the Lawfulness of Processing Data, in short any data I need from you must fall into one of the following categories.

Your information held here is secure and held only by myself unless I am required to share with a third party such as another childcare setting, NEF claims, health visitor, safeguarding complaint, or Drs in the event of an emergency. Please refer to my policies and permissions for further information.

Our Son loves going to Natalie and Tracey. He has a wonderful time and always looks forward to going. They provide a great service and really care about the children they look after. They keep us informed on my Son’s progress and work with us on his development. There are always new activities and outings to keep the children entertained.

Response by Natalie and Tracey on 12/06/2019:
It was a pleasure they were both wonderful. I will get back to you soon on availability for you thank you xx
My daughter Ellie has loved her time with Natalie and Tracey. I worried when I got a new job with difficult hours about both the transition she would make from a nursery and in finding the flexibility I needed with the hours I worked.
Natalie and Tracey have ensured from day one that I had support in working longer hours, allowing Ellie to stay late on days where I work late. They are accommodating, friendly, flexible, and just great with children. Communication cannot be faulted and I always know what Ellie has done. Ellie loves them and the transition barely happened-she loved her new “school” from day one and has made friends as well as learned and grown in the time she has been there. I know she will be sad to say goodbye when she starts school, as will I!
Response by Natalie and Tracey on 03/06/2019:

Response by Natalie and Tracey on 13/05/2019:
Aw thank you, she is a pleasure xx
You won't find more dedicated, enthusiastic and caring childminders than Natalie and Tracey. They have always gone above and beyond to support us as a family and, Emily has absolutely loved her time there. Leaving your little one in someone else's care is not easy, but my husband and I have ways been happy and relaxed leaving Emily knowing they will meet her needs, keep us well informed and have a brilliant and fun filled day. We have loved reading about Emily's day in her little book they write in and seeing her artistic creations from the day! Natalie and Tracey knew I would struggle to collect Emily after work so have dropped her off at home when needed, always taking time to chat about Emily's day. We will all miss them.
Response by Natalie and Tracey on 19/12/2016:
Hope Emily has settled well into nursery she was such a pleasure and grew to be a confident little girl who will excel in all she does. will keep in touch and hope to see you all soon dont forget we are only ever a phone call away xx
