About Me

Childminder providing a fun, safe & homely environment

We have 2 dogs ( Golden Retrievers)

We have 3 girls all secondary school age who are very energetic & cheerful.

The whole family loves being outdoors, either going on walks, trips to the local canal, parks and picnics not to mention our local Soft Play Centre and wildfowl trust.

I became an Ofsted Registered childminder in October 2015 and my husband Phil is my Assistant. I was graded good at our last inspection in March 2018.

we are friendly & approachable, we also love to be surrounded by Children.

The laughter of children is definitely the heart of our home.

Little stars really helped our daughter settle in to their childcare setting.. After staying at home with mummy until 3 years old she struggled with separation anxiety terribly. Lisa and Phil made her feel comfortable and welcome to the point where she eventually would skip down the path and not look back. It really put our minds at ease knowing she was being well cared for.
I can't recommend little stars enough.

This is a really nice setting with a dedicated husband and wife team, my 3 year old son really enjoys spending time here, my 5 year old son gets dropped off and picked up from the local school with no issues and also enjoys spending time with the couple.
The couples 3 daughters enjoy playing with the children welcoming them into their home, they are a really asset to the setting.

Negative points this is a childminders and not a nursery, the couple do need to take time out for family holidays, sickness etc. If you can arrange childcare to cover these short periods this is an ideal setting, (they always give plenty of notice for planned closures, emergency closures for sickness can be more challenging).

My 2yr old has been going to little stars and he thoroughly loves it.
He loves the animals, rabbits, chickens to name a couple and he asks me to go which is great as usually I am dragging him up to pre school :(
Can't reccomend Lisa and Phil enough ??

I have used Lisa and Phillip on many occasions, and my daughter is always happy to be there and I'm reassured that my daughter enjoys her time with them, Lisa and Phillip are always kind, calm and patient with my daughter. My daughter enjoys the range of toys available, along with the large garden and learning about the animals they keep. I'm confident i picked the right one. It really is a home from home enviroment.
