About Me


My name is Charlotte and I live in Pontefract with my husband and 3 children. I became an Ofsted Registered Childminder in 2014 to be able to help other parents, as I myself am familiar with the stress of balancing childcare and working full time. With this in mind I try to be as flexible as possible, I will always try to accommodate any childcare request and will work closely with parents to support their childcare needs. I am happy to work early mornings and weekends as I understand that not all work patterns are 9-5.

I aim to provide a fun, relaxed and homely setting where the developmental needs of children are met and parents have peace of mind knowing that their little ones are happy and safe. I am Ofsted registered, have my paediatric first aid certificate, a full driving license and my own vehicle and both myself and my partner have current DBS certificates.

My Experience

I began childminding in November 2014 and have looked after a variety of ages since.

I do find that having my own children has helped with my experience in my job role and as no two days are the same I feel that my experience grows daily.

My Qualifications

Full Childminding Training from Local Authority
Paediatric First Aid
Health & Hygiene certificate
Myself and my partner are DBS (CRB) checked
Ongoing training courses with Local Authority

My Availability

At the moment I have a very flexible amount of availability.

I currently open at 5:30am to accommodate shift patterns and also provide overnight and weekend care.

Very good with my children who are very happy to be picked up from school by Charlotte.

They also love going to her through the school holidays as she does lots of fun activities with them and provides them with good meals.

I recommend her to anyone looking for a 5 star childminder.

Charlotte has taken care of my two children since she opened in 2014. I have little girls age 5 and 7 and they absolutely love going. Charlotte herself is very friendly and makes the children feel safe and welcome. She is always happy to help and is very reliable. Charlottes home is very clean and tidy, she makes the children a good variety of dinners and does activities with them which they always enjoy.

I would highly recommend Belles and Beaus childminder it's a big decision deciding who to trust your children with but I certainly made the right choice.
