Hi. My name is Carly Luker and I live in Morden with my husband and 3 children. Bailey is 14, Skye is 12 and Riley is 10. We also have a 1 year old Bichon Frisè called Nova who is amazing with the children.
I am next to St Helier Train Station and a 10 minute walk away from Morden Tube Station so its a great location for commuters.
I recently had my Ofsted inspection and I was very happy with the GOOD grading. Inspection report can be viewed.
I offer a home from home environment, therefore allowing your child to feel comfortable and open to explore. Activities include messy play, cooking, arts and crafts, and a great selection of books and & toys. We visit toddler groups, soft play areas, story/song time at the library and trips to the farm.
My rates are inclusive of all meals, activities and trips.
I have been an Ofsted registered childminder on and off for 13 years. Stopping temporarily to raise my youngest child. I now have all of my children at school full time so I am back doing what I love as a childminder.

I'm so glad we found Carly, I was a very anxious first time mum with lots of fears around childcare but these soon fell away after meeting Carly and seeing how my daughter immediately took to her.
She provides a home from home, sends pictures and updates to keep us involved. My daughter absolutely adores her and the other children at the setting.
Our daughter has allergies and Carly is not phased at being able to manage these and she's been flexible in providing extra support when I have ongoing treatment in hospital. We've been so grateful for Carlys positive attitude during those times, shes just been wonderful and supportive.
Carly provides seasonal activities, outings to parks and soft play and my daughter loves spending time with Carly's older children and her dog too. Her communication has come on leaps and bounds which is always a good sign of an engaging and nurturing environment.
If you're also a worried mum I definitely recommend setting up a meeting with Carly, you might find that you suddenly feel differently. I'm planning on returning to work full time whereas before I was fretting over leaving my daughter with others for just a few hours a week; I hope my daughter will be spending time with Carly for years to come!
My son Joe first started with Carly when he was 9 months old. He settled in quickly and I have to say he absolutely adores her and I know the feeling is mutual. It’s like leaving my baby with a good friend. I know he is going to be well taken care of and have a great day.
Carly is funny, down to earth and bubbly and is always laughing and smiling and puts you in a good mood for the day.
Carly has been part of Joe’s first milestones including help with weaning, walking and now talking. He loves her home and her family including her lovely dog as well as the other children she takes care of. I really think he feels part of her family and I can see between them they have such a lovely bond.
I am so glad I found Carly and I cannot recommend her highly enough to others.
My daughter has been going to Carly since she was 6 weeks old, my daughter is soon to be 3 and we’ve all loved having Carly as part of our family network! During a few family crisis, Carly has provided extra care for Robyn and support for the whole family which you cannot put a price on.
Robyn absolutely adores Carly!
Carly has been amazing in Robyn’s development and helped with every aspect. So many activities are provided, days out, trips to soft play and much more.
Communication is great! I love getting pictures of Robyn doing different things throughout the week. I don’t feel like I’m missing out. Any concerns are raised and plans are made between us and Carly that works in both home and childcare setting.
Cannot believe how lucky we have been to find Carly and I don’t doubt Robyn will be keeping in contact once she goes to nursery.
Carly is more than amazing. My daughter was with Carly from the age of 6 months till recently at 3 when she started nursery.
Daughter adores her and still calls, messages, hugs and wants to visit her that’s how much of an impact Carly has had on her life. Going to nursery she knows some much teachers are surprised she has not been at a nursery. All I can say is she had an amazing ‘Aunty’. Carly is a very active and involved childcare provider. She engages children with activities outside and in her setting. She is hands on following and recording early years development progress which she shares with parents.
Always looked forward to notifications from Babydays to see what progress daughter had made. Carly is so involved if she had any concerns would voice them and create plans to work on them in the setting and at home.
All in all Carly is a God send; she’s is a friend and an Aunty. She is missed.
I would highly recommend her as a childminder.

Thank you so much for writing such lovely things. Your little girl was an absolute pleasure to look after every day and I'm so pleased to hear about how she is getting on so well at nursery. She is missed by all of us x
Carly is such a wonderful childminder - my son absolutely adores her and really enjoys going to her house. She often takes him to the park with her own children and he's really become one of the gang! Carly's three children are all so lovely and well-behaved and my son enjoys playing with all of them. He always has fun tales to tell when he's been at Carly's house and never wants to leave. Carly is lovely, fun, and very kind - she looks after my son likes he's one of her own and her trust completely. I don't know where I'd be without her!
