About Me

Hi, my name is Claire I live in Loughton/Debden, with my husband Eddie, our two girls aged 9 and 3 years and two pet tabby cats. Both my husband and I have been DBS checked.

I offer childcare from our 3 bedroom home with purpose built playroom, I have a large garden which the children absolutely love and never want to come in from, last spring myself and the children created a small wild garden complete with bug house, the garden also has a play house, mud kitchen, sand, water and new decking area.

I aim to work in partnership with you to provide continuity of care in a safe, caring, home from home environment for your child.

I encourage explorative play and offer a variety of activities for each stage of your child’s development.

I am in an ideal location to the Debden Central Line Station.

Claire looks after my two children who both have additional needs and I couldn’t be more confident in her care for them. She is such a lovely and kind lady along with her husband and their two beautiful children, they really
Make the experience home from home in their lovely house. My children adore being with Claire and I often struggle to get them to leave and also my 3 year old daughter asks every day to go to their house. Claire is very understanding and knowledgeable, I’m usually very nervous of leaving my children because of their disabilities but she made me feel at ease straight away. Highly recommend Claire.
