About Me

Hello, My name is Cassie. I am a mother with an adorable teenage daughter.

I am an OFSTED Registered Childminder, I am also a member of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years ( PACEY).

I run Little Giggles with my 2 assistants, who are a qualified childminder and a qualifies Nursery Nurse. We are a home-based childcare where the children are cared for in friendly, caring, learning environment.

DURING THE CORONA-VIRUS PANDEMIC WE WILL REMAIN OPEN , I HAVE KEY WORKER FAMILIES AND HAVE TEMPORARY SPACES AVAILABLE FOR KEY WORKER CHILDREN,

I had previously worked as Foster Carer for 9 years and looked after with some of the most vulnerable children; and my assistants have worked with children for up to 20 years. This has given us a wealth of experience in working with children of all ages, with patience and understanding.

We strive to provide a Positive, Friendly, Holistic setting encompassing quality care for Babies through to 5 years old, looked after in a loving homelike environment. We are greatly influenced with the fact that we believe that children can learn much through play, and they learn more when they are having 'Fun'.

At Little Giggles we aim to offer the best Professional, Reliable, and Quality service to all our parents which is both welcoming and friendly, and where the children will be supervised in an environment that is safe and warm.

We serve breakfast., lunch and tea, We have a well-planned varied, healthy and nutritious menu prepared daily by us, which includes Fruit and Vegetables, and we also encourage the children to drink water regularly throughout the day..

We have a 2 large designated playrooms for the children filled with books toys and other activities, a lovely enclosed garden for out-door play, with toys for all ages . We offer appropriate and varied activities that support the children's development, with a range of for all our age groups. We have a lovely park close by which we visit regularly throughout the year, as well as trips to Libraries, toddler groups, Soft Play area's and Museums.

We also Pick-up and Drop-off at schools local to our area, this service can include Breakfast and After-school clubs.

This is more than just a Job. we have a genuine love of working with children, and continually strive to work in partnership with parents.

My Experience

I have had 9 years experience as a Foster Parent; caring for children between the ages of 1 - 18 yrs, from different backgrounds and abilities.
I have had experience looking after children with additional needs.
Being a foster carer also enabled me to work in partnership with Parents and Carers effectively, and also other outside agencies associated with children with the utmost confidence.
I have worked with other registered childminders in the past as a 'Back-up' carer.
