About Me

We are a husband and wife team and live on the Eden Park development next to the Bodyshop roundabout just off the A259, in Littlehampton. As there are two of us working together we can give 100% attention and support to any child that requires it and are extremely reliable.
If you have a future full/part time vacancy requirement please do still get in touch as we may be able to accommodate you (children moving on to nursery/school etc)
We offer a warm and friendly family environment, with a dedicated bright spacious play room, a fully enclosed and well equipped garden including a full size ex hire bouncy castle!
We are delighted that the vast majority of children we care for are from word of mouth and recommendations from existing and past parents and still care for children of school age we have had from birth.
Fun and educational activities include, singing and musical instruments, painting, playdough, sticking, cooking, board games, reading and indoor and outdoor toys to meet all age groups.
We do various activities which include toddler groups, beach and park outings, sing and sign language classes, picnics and what ever else the children would like to do.
As a larger than normal setting it offers excellent social interaction opportunities with children of different ages.
We have a rota of planned activities to meet EYFS requirements, these are always changing so no two days are ever the same!
We are very flexible and also very reliable and have references from current and past parents. Our last Ofsted inspection was "GOOD" in September 2016.

Alison and Alan have been very welcoming. They are extremely professional yet friendly and I feel confident leaving my son in their care. I recieve a detailed review of each days activities and am amazed at the varied programme. They have encouraged my son to develop socially and he is always eager to see them. The house is spacious, modern and immaculately clean. I would recommend them to everyone!

Thanks for lovely comments glad we have met and have the privilege of looking after such an adorable little boy x

I began my search for childcare a few months ago and after visiting a range of nurseries and childminders in the area, Alison and Alan undoubtedly stood out as the best team I met by far. From the very first day, they took a great interest in not just my daughter, but our whole family as well. Their house is clean, safe and welcoming, and it is an environment that is the right balance of fun, learning and discipline. I also find Alison and Alan flexible and accommodating to the ever changing needs and circumstances of parents. My daughter has now completely settled there and I go to work every morning knowing she's happy and safe.

Nice to hear your mind is at rest when you are at work leaving the girls with us xx

Alison and Alan are amazing childminders for our little girl. They have great values and our daughter always comes home happy after her days with them. Their flexibilty is fantastic and they are incredibly friendly and caring. They have a great clean play area for the children as well as garden equipment and our daughter has come on so much since being with them. She shares a great bond with them and its lovely to know we are leaving her everyday knowing she is happy and well cared for.
