About Me

Hi
I am Cathy and I will be opening Twinkle Childminding on 1st August 2019. I will be working with one other registered childminder too. So between us we have over 38 years experience in childcare..

We encourage outdoor play and have a brand new play area in our premises plus we live next door to a lovely little park which has a small football pitch.
We provide small amounts of Spanish, yoga and sign language daily, trips to the local wood, Jimmys farm, Hastys. All children will receive Learning and Reading Journals.

We are based in the village of Frating, situated just off of the A120 with great links to the A12 as well as Clacton, Thorrington, Great Bentley, Great Bromley, Elmstead Market, Wivenhoe, Brightlingsea etc.

We are ideally situated if you are travelling to or from Colchester or Clacton.

We can offer childminding services to 0-11yrs Mon-Fri 07:30-18:00. We can also offer babysitting services

Twinkle will be closed for 6 weeks of the year and I will make all parents aware of these dates at the beginning of the year. During 2019 I will only be closed for 2 weeks. 7th October - 11th October 2019 & 16th December - 20th December 2019.

We accept 2yr and 3yr childcare funding and universal credit.

We will offer school pick ups or drop offs to older children at Elmstead Market Primary School with the possibility of Great Bentley Primary School too.

We are friendly, fun, safe & full of ideas to stimulate the children and encourage them to have a brilliant day.

we are both Ofsted Registered.
