About Me

I'm a well experienced parent myself, my children have left home and given me grandchildren, as you maybe able to tell I am well equipped for any Childs needs. I live at home with my husband Alan, our border collie poppy, she is well loved by the children I currently look after, especially when they get to play ball with her, she has her safe place away from the children but loves them as much as I enjoy working with them. My youngest son still lives with me and is now working in the childcare sector, so I must have done something right with bringing my children up. Our home is spacious with a landscaped garden, where children can play in, they love the play house, trampoline and cars in the garden.

Steph has had my little boy for a few years now, and wow! I couldn't have picked a better childminder, she is spot on, my little boy has come on leaps and bounds since going with Steph.

by about Stephanie Joyce on 29/05/2019

Steph cared for my 3 children (including twins) for a year and was super flexible, affordable and accommodating. My children were busy, safe and happy. Steph endeavoured to provide a varied, interesting mix of activities and trips, which in my opinion, went above and beyond the child minding average. Her home was very clean and she has invested properly in toys and equipment. Steph attended professional development courses to keep her practice current, showing her commitment to providing a professional service. Furthermore, I liked her manner with my children (who like all others can be trying) and I was reassured by her sensible approach. I would have no hesitation in using her services again.
