About Me

Hi, my name is Maisie and I am mother and an Ofsted registered childminder for the past 20 years. I have been married 30 years and have raised 4 children of my own - all of whom have subsequently gone through university and are now pursuing their careers.

I pride myself on providing a welcoming and friendly environment for your child, and encourage working in partnership with you to ensure that your child has the best and happiest start in life.

I am on The emergency cover for ofsted. I am also on the list for special needs children. As a childminder, the children in my care are treated as a member of my family and I enjoy my work very much.

My Experience

Having raised my own children over the last 30 years, and those children of my clients for the past 20 years, I believe, and have been told, I provide an excellent childcare service. Previous children have all gone on with exceptional standards of learning and communication skills to enter Key Stage 1 education.

Your child will be welcomed into a warm and caring home. I teach the children in my care their letters, numbers, shapes, colours etc using traditional methods.
We share a lot of creative activities including story time, painting, colouring and lots of play. As well as indoor activities the children have access to the garden with a toddler slide and see-saw.

We will regularly visit local OFSTED registered playgroups, local parks and playgrounds and libraries to enhance the children's experiences and social skills.

My Qualifications

Safeguarding Child Protection Part 1 & 2
Ofsted Certificate of Registration
Paediatric First Aider
Early Years Foundation Stage 1 & 2

Below are the latest reviews for Maisie L. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Maisie cared for our son George for 13 months from 11 months old until he turned two and went to nursery. She provided a loving and caring environment with healthy home-cooked meals, plenty of activities, educational games and regular trips to soft play, music group and the park. He developed really well in her care, learning colours, numbers and lots of new words. Her house was a home from home for him, he loved going and there were never any tears at drop off. Maisie is friendly, reliable and flexible and put our minds at ease during the settling in period when I returned to work. We are still in touch - George sees her grandson who he became close to in her care and our 8 month old daughter will be joining her when I finish maternity leave in the Summer. We were lucky to find Maisie, I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Maisie has cared for my son Oliver since August 2017. Maisie provides a home from home setting ensuring the children in her care are loved, well fed, educated and have fun. Oliver learnt and developed so much in his time at Maisie's and loved going every day, we were lucky to have never to experience tears at drop off. When Oliver turned 2 we put him into nursery 3 days a week keeping him with Maisie one day a week as he loved it so much and they had created such a strong bond.

Finishing maternity leave and finding the right carer was a tough process and I am so glad we found Maisie.

Maisie is absolutely wonderful! Our daughter is 2 and she's been looking after her for over 6 months now and our little one loves it!

She provides loving, educational care in a safe set up making us feel she is staying with family. Maisie cooks lovely meals and does fun activities with the children making sure they are busy, developing and well looked after. Our daughter social skills have definitely improved since going to Maisie's.

As parents we fell lucky to have found her! our daughter is always happy to stay when we leave her in the mornings as there's never been tears. Maisie is super professional, reliable and easy to get along with. We can't recommend her enough!

Thank you Maisie!

Maisie is an absolutely wonderful childminder who ensures a safe, loving and fun environment for the children she looks after - a home away from home where she treats them like they're her own family.

She started caring for my son when he turned one, making sure he was really comfortable and settled in before he started - when it came to leaving him with her for the first time, there were no tears and he walked up to her house with a big smile on his face! She provides plenty of stimulation and learning for the kids, as well as lots of fun activities like arts and crafts, and visits to play and singing groups every week.

Having raised four boys, Maisie has seen it all and is a safe and reliable pair of hands with any child. She's also a wonderful cook, and is friendly and very easy to get along with. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Maisie has looked after our son (now age 3) for over two years. She is very loving and caring with children. She provides a comfortable home environment with toys, crafts, reading and delicious home cooked food including chicken, fish and macaroni cheese. They also visit a music group nearby, soft play centres and other activities. Our son absolutely adores her and has been very happy with her. His speech and communication has really improved well. Maisie has been very reliable, never once letting us down. We would recommend her to anyone as she is a very experienced professional.
