About Me

Hi, My name is Eleanor & i'm 36. I offer a home from home environment offering safe, secure care at my setting, with lots of toys and activities for your little ones to play with as well as a large secure garden. My main aim is for the children to be having lots of fun, and learning through play.

I live with my husband, and little girl who's 5. In a semi detached House with a large outdoor play area on Barrack Hill, Newport, (not far from town centre & close to the motorway)

I love to be active and encourage this with all children at my setting & like to go on lots of walks & try to get out most days on trips, to the Park, Play Centres, soft Play, Play groups, Farms, Beach, Walks, Zoo, & activity days.

From the age of 1 years old, I like to introduce basic sign language to the children, this enables children to communicate effectively & lowers frustration levels in younger children by giving them a means to express themselves before they know how to talk. I also like to introduce gentle kids yoga which the kids really enjoy doing.

I have 2 organic apple trees and an organic pear tree in my garden so plenty of fresh fruit for the children in the summer.

I currently collect and drop of at Crindau Primary School. I am very flexible on hours with full time & part time spaces available.

I am also looking at doing nanny work.

Please contact me for a chat if you have any questions.
