About Me

Hi my name is Rachael. I am an Ofsted registered childminder, with over 18 years experience in childcare.
I am fully qualified with an NVQ 3 in Early Years Childcare and Education, I have also completed level 3 in childminding.

I offer a home from home environment for children of all ages, within my home I have a playroom with various resources to suit the individual child, a craft room and a large secure garden for the children move freely and explore.
I live in Moreton, Wirral within close proximity to local shops, parks, schools, library and public transport.

I have two dogs called Oscar and Snoop, and two Cats called Dizzie and Rascal. They are all very friendly and have their own safe haven for rest times away from the children when needed. They are all fully up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm treatments. They are a part of the family and a great learning opportunity for the children to learn how to care for other living things, carry out tasks and to have responsibilities.

I have an assistant working with me called Lisa, she also has 18 years experience in childcare along with four children of her own. We have known and worked together for the past 18 years and make a good fun team. Lisa is also NVQ level 3 qualified in childcare and we both have valid first aid training.
All our certificates are available to look at by request.

The children in our care will be offered a caring and stimulating environment with many opportunities to learn and develop to the best of their abilities whilst having fun! We promote British values and enjoy celebrating and embracing festivals and cultures from all over the world and we will help them to learn to socialize, care and respect others, take turns and to use their manners.
Self help and self care is strongly encouraged with our support to toilet train, wash hands, eat healthily and to become independent.

It is our aim to be good role models to your children to give them a positive starting point in life in order to progress and thrive.

As well as planned learning opportunities we will go out into the community to local greengrocers, toddler groups, library, the farm, soft play etc.
During the school holidays we also plan days trips such as the museum, the zoo, aquarium, beach and many more.

We offer 2 and 3 year funded places and also accept childcare vouchers.

My Experience

15 years experience working in a Nursery School as Manager for a setting of 46 children.
I have also been a Nanny for a family of 3 young children under the age of 5, and for another family of 3 aged from 8 to 13, giving me a vast amount of experience in all age ranges.
I have experience in looking after children with special education needs and disabilities and will accommodate all children and adapt appropriately so that all children are treated equally, and have the same opportunities to learn.

Rachael has looked after my boys since January 2018, she is amazing and always puts them first. My youngest has SEN needs but still nothing is a challenge. She has the patients of a saint to say the least. I would highly recommend anyone looking for home to home childcare.

Rachael and Lisa cared for my twin babies from age 3 months, they made us feel so comfortable leaving our children in their care. We are so happy with the special bond they built up and the level of care they provided. Our girls were always exited to see them and we knew they always had fun by the smiles on there faces when picking them up and by the beautiful learning journals they made for us that we will treasure forever. We couldn’t recommend them enough and thankyou for girls for all you have done over the years.
