Hello i'm Lisa i am a ofsted registered childminder and hold a certificate to prove this. I am a fully qualified nursery nurse. Fully qualified St Johns Ambulance, qualified level 2 in Basic food and hygiene. I implement the EYFS helping your child reach each milestone and plenty of choice in resources inside and outdoor.

I am happily married to Simon, who works for the WYP. We are animal lovers. We have 2 springer spaniels Oscar who is 8& Murphy who is 5 they are very loveable and fine around the children, we have an indoor cat Tigz who keeps out of the way. So you must be animal lovers!

We've been together 24-years and married for nearly 17 years, we have 3 children together 20, 18 and 12.

We live in the Pontefract just off new hall rd, 5 mins from the M62 in a quiet cul de sac and have a large garden with plenty of space for the children to play and explore.

I worked at a Private Day Nursery for over 2 years looking after 0-5 year olds i loved my job and decided to set up my own business helping parents in my local area. Children are well cared for i cook heathy meals, have plenty of resources indoor and outdoors for all ages making everyday a fun exciting day. I implement EYFS every child matters.

My Fees

  • Childminding from £4.00 per hour

Affordable prices and flexible hours to suit your needs. Get in touch. Funding places available. My hourly rate is £4ph but price may increase depending on the hours you require each week.
I do a min contract of 3 days a week and if you require hours such as 9am-3pm (nearly a full day) it would be charged at 3 days asI would find it very hard to set another child on therefore you would be charged a day rate which is £120 a week. However if there's sibling I would probably charge it at hourly. It depends on your circumstances to what payments will be. Thank you

We are so happy we found Lisa, Joseph adores his time with her! He's come on leaps and bounds and is always coming home with colourful crafts and things he's helped baked. She's always doing different activities with him and his meals are so varied and nutritious. I can't recommend her enough she's brilliant.

Lisa has previously looked after my 2 boys she picked them up from school helped them with their homework and made them feel part of her family. Her home is well equipped for children of many ages and she provides a wide range of healthy meals, she even asked for input from me on what my children liked and disliked to make sure they enjoyed their meals, showing the children's happiness is a must for her, I have recently had a new baby and I am thinking of going back to work and i cannot imagine leaving my children with anyone but Lisa. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a childminder.

Thank you for your kinds words and positive feedback. I love looking after your children they mean the world to me you all do.xx

Lisa has been picking up my son from school for a year - I always find her helpful, flexible and friendly. My son loves going to her home and playing with the vast array of toys that she has and playing with the other children at the setting and Lisa's own children, He is quite disappointed if I pick him up from school which is always a good sign that he is enjoying his time at her home. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home from home setting for their child, where you know they will be safe and well cared for - thanks Lisa
