About Me

Hi! My name is Becky and I offer a very unique childcare setting that is completely child focused and different from any other. I am a friendly, smiley person and have found that children connect to my happy go lucky nature. I am caring, hard working, and very determined to be successful. In addition to myself and another childminder there are also several assistants working within the setting in order to give more children outstanding care and to enable better availability to meet parents needs. There is only ever 1 childminder working with 2 assistants though. My setting is based in the heart of the countryside with wonderful views and is situated very close to Warwick, Leamington Spa, M40 and Jaguar Landrover. I also offer home cooked meals. Children benefit from the beautiful facilities we offer and the wonderful outdoor opportunities available here. We believe learning should be fun and make sure that everything we do is exciting, stimulating and interesting. We offer an extensive range of toys and activities for children to experience and above all we offer a high level of care.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Sparkles. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our daughter attended Little Sparkles full time from September 2019 - December 21 (9mths-3yr) and is only leaving to move onto pre-school.

Becky and her team are caring and welcoming, building such wonderful relationships with the children that show when you glimpse through the door on pick up to see all the children smiling, playing and thoroughly involved in the activities. The team always interact with the children, playing games, chatting or comforting each of them.

The setting is so unique, it is purpose built to accommodate many play and learning areas for the children, it is clean, light and beautifully decorated with a huge selection of toys and equipment all kept tidily and brought out to compliment the weekly themes, the outside space and play areas they have are second to none.

Parents are kept updated on activities daily and have parent/key worker meetings. The team are always happy to update you at pick up and pass on any messages, all being aware of each individual child.

We have been able to leave our daughter each day knowing she was safe, cared for and learning in a truly magical setting -the activities are well thought out and organised, submersing children of every age into a subject and games/crafts associated with it.

My son has been at Little Sparkles & Stars since he was 9 months old. He's now 3 and he has absolutely loved going there.
It's a beautiful setting and Becky and all of the staff are absolutely wonderful. Couldn't recommend them highly enough,

We couldn't have wished for more from Sparkles and Stars. The setting is based in the middle of gorgeous countryside and the children have access to a large open garden space with outdoor toys and views of fields with farm animals.

The setting provides an amazing home-from-home environment. Becky and her assistant carers ensure the children's individual needs are taken care of and work in partnership with parents on matters such as napping and potty training. The meals are varied and nutritious.

The children have opportunity to take part in a wide variety of activities such as painting and drawing, baking, dancing, trips out, singing, story-time and many more.

Our son looked forward to going to the setting every week and has formed some really lovely friendships with children who he still sees on a regular basis outside of the setting. He has some wonderful memories to take away with him.

We could not recommend Sparkles and Stars more.

My son attended Little Sparkles & Stars for 2 years.
Becky and her team were excellent and very child focused as well as being very accommodating for our needs. The meals they provided were healthy and nutritional.

The setting is lovely and clean and is within countryside where they spent some of there time.
My son beamed whilst here and enjoyed his time with all the other children.
Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a childminder.
