About Me

Hi, we are 'Helens child-minding service' and we are based in the Currock area of Carlisle. We have been established for eleven years now providing flexible childcare, overnight care and funded places for two year olds. Our home is friendly and welcoming with a secure rear garden for play. We make visits to various playgroups/ soft play/ library. Day trips take place in school holidays to various places including cinema, bowling, Hammonds pond, etc.

My Experience

I have been childminding for nearly thirteen years now since my own children were babies (they're 12 and 14 now). Both my sons were born very prematurely so working from home as a child-minder meant I could combine caring for them alongside work.
Previous to this, I studied travel and tourism at college and worked as a holiday / travel rep. I was also a care worker caring for the elderly / infirm I their own homes.

My Qualifications

I am ofsted registered and insured through PACEY (professional association for childcare and early years). I have completed paediatric first aid training, safeguarding children, Introduction into child-minding practice and various other courses including Food hygiene, Infection and control, safe handling and Administering medication. I take regular training that enables me to keep up to date with eyfs requirements.
The assistants that work with me are all DBS checked and have all had first aid / safeguarding training.

My Availability

Our working hours are normally monday to Friday 6.30am til 5.30pm, overnights and occasional Saturdays are by negotiation.

We also have casual vacancies available for days throughout the school holidays and we are able to provide care at short notice.
