I Look after all age ranges from babies to 12yrs old, I have a fantastic separate playroom and private garden for your child to learn through play. I follow the early yrs EYFS ( early yrs foundation stage). I provide lots of activities including arts and crafts, reading, small world activities , dressing up, board games, games console. I have an amazing Home Corner that children absolutely love.

Outside my garden is very secure to safeguard your child and we have bikes ,scooters , football to name but a few.

Elaine is absolutely fantastic childminder, my daughter who is 14 months old loves her so much. She has settled very quickly. Every morning once she see's Elaine she runs to her. Elaine is loving and caring while remaining professional at the same time. She keeeps us updated with a diary of what she's been up to during the day and sends us pictures via WhatsApp.
We are so lucky to have her.
I highly recommended Elaine to everyone but be aware that your kids might not want to come home with you when you pick them up:)

Thank you so much Lisa for your very kind review Sara is an absolute pleasure to look after..so funny..love her 😍

I found Elaine when I needed a childminder who could collect from my daughters school. She worked with me at the last minute to arrange the days and times I needed, and my daughter absolutely loves going! She has varied, nutritionally balanced meals, and a huge variety of toys for all ages!

I would definitely recommend Elaine to anyone who needs a local childminder !

We could not recommend Elaine enough...our daughter Angelina absolutely loves Elaine as if she is one of the family..! Freshly prepared healthy meals every day ..cleanliness..reliability 100% always ,and my daughter has learned so much since going to Elaine’s. Every day there are lots of different activities she does with the kids including taking them out for the day . When my daughter goes to Elaine’s I feel relaxed because I know my daughter enjoys it and I think that’s one of a parents main concern...she definitely gives the best to the kids she looks after and that’s what counts . My daughter couldn’t be happier and so am I .

Thank you

Elaine is a fantastic childminder. We travel 30mins from Barnsley for her to look after our 10month old daughter, I wouldn’t have anyone other than her look after my children. Kids are always
Kept entertained with activities and trips out, she feeds them home-cooked healthy foods and encourages learning and independence. Couldn’t ask for more!

We have used Elaine both for my step-son and my daughter, and myself and my wife have always been very happy with her services.
She is friendly and professional, and offers both in-house activities and trips to local places for the children in her care.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody, and if we should ever need a child-care provider in the future then Elaine would absolutely be our first choice.
