About Me

My name is Fiona Manton (Sheridan). I grew up in a small house with 7 other brothers and sisters and have always wanted to be a childminder. I have tonnes of years of experience not only professionally but also looking after relatives and volunteering at youth clubs aswell. I live in a nice house in East Belfast with my fiance Ben and our 2 cats, Horatio and Cleo. Both Ben and our fur babies are very supportive of my role as a childminder and both Horatio and Cleo ate very excited to have new friends!!I want to provide a Home away from Home feel for your child to learn and grow. I love art and messy play and believe sensory play to be one of the most important and funniest way to help your child learn at their own pace, exploring all of their senses!

My Experience

I have been a registered childminder since 7th August 2017 and am a current member with NICMA, which is a professional membership body for childminding. I am registered to mind a maximum of 6 children, with 3 under the compulsory school age and 3 over. Although I have only been registered for a short time I have worked as a Nursery Supervisor in Puddleducks Day nursery for 2 and half years, where I gained experience in ages from 0-5 years old. I have worked and volunteered in childcare for at least 10 years, from youth council, babysitting, and working alongside the parent teacher group of my previous primary and secondary schools as well as nursery assistant/supervisor.

My Fees

  • Childminding from £4.50 per hour

I work on a hour slot basis, based on how many hours your child will be with me,:

0-4.5 hours = £18
5-7 hours = £27
7.5 + hours = £37
These times must be a morning or afternoon session for example : 8-12 = £18 or 12-4 = £18
8 -2 = £27 or 8-6 = £37
All sessions must be pre-booked in advance and any changes must be given within at least a 2 weeks’ notice where possible. Any extra hours outside your pre-booked times will be charged an extra £4.50 per hour and must be sorted out in advance with myself. Extra days are charged at full daily rate depending on hours.
