About Me

Hello and welcome to Ladybug Childcare. My name is Christy. I'm Ofsted registered and live in Moortown with my three children. I have taught and worked with children of all ages for over ten years and decided to go into childcare to spend more time with my own children.

I provide before and after school care for children aged 0 to 12 years, and live within walking distance of local primary schools, parks and Moor Allerton Library.

Leaving your child with a childminder is probably one of the most important decisions you will have to make as a parent - I've been there myself when choosing childcare for my own children. That's why I'm 100% confident that you will be comfortable and happy that you are leaving them with a fully referenced, qualified and experienced person who will provide home from home care for your child in a warm, welcoming and safe environment.

Breakfast is served in the morning before school drop off and the children get an evening meal after school pick up. I provide healthy vegetarian meals. However parents are free to provide specialist and non vegetarian options for their children if preferred.

Please inform me if your child/children have any food allergies or intolerance.

We spend time afterwards completing homework, doing art and crafts, playing games and if the weather permits, playing outside or walking to the local park.

Please allow extra time at the interview so that we can go through the contract, supporting documentation and policies. I will provide you with a copy of the contract to take away and read at your leisure before committing to a childminding contract with me.

My Experience

I am a former teacher with over ten years' experience who has taught and worked with children across the board. In addition, I am a CELTA qualified and experienced EAL/ESOL teacher. I am a mother of three wonderful children whom I have raised since birth and have also looked after children of family and friends over the years.

My Qualifications

Level 3 Paediatric First Aid
Introductory Training Course (Childminding)
Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA)
Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Studies
Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)

My Availability

My standard hours are 7.00 am to 6.00 pm Monday to Wednesday.

I have spaces available for before and after school sessions or full/half days.

I am happy to provide drop off only or pick up only to suit parents' work schedules.

Although I work mainly during term time, I also have spaces available during the school holidays on a first come first served basis.
