I am fun and friendly childminder, my ethos is ‘into the community’ as the children and I love to be out and about as well as in my home based setting in West End.

I provide stimulating activities to help develop the individual child's learning and development in line with the early years foundation stage both indoors and out, learning through play.

I am extremely fortunate as I work from my own home, providing childcare for all ages ranging from birth-10years.
Offering contracted and ADHOC sessions also providing; babysitting, nannying and night nannying aimed to suit each parent/carers requirements.

Previously I was a pre school manager at a local nursery which I loved, I decided to leave the nursery and begin childminding as I wanted a more freedom with regards to being able to provide activities both in the setting and out.

One of the perks of having a childminder/nanny is having the opportunity to attend groups and classes as well as visiting parks, library's, farms and zoos amongst many more. Having a nursery practitioners knowledge and background plus gaining as a childminder more freedom and flexibility works in tandem, which I believe has given me individuality within the childcare field.

My Experience

I was struggling to find a childminder that suited what I needed with my daughter, but Marcelle ticked all the boxes she was accommodating to what we needed and my little girl adores her, I get reassured throughout the day when she’s with Marcelle with pictures and comments on how her days going which makes me relaxed and reassured, my daughter now sees Marcelle as a second mummy she has such a nice bond with her she also won’t nap on her own so enjoys cuddling up to Marcelle and going to sleep, my daughter doesn’t give me a second glance when I drop her of because she is so content and happy being there, her speech and language has came on massively and she enjoys lots of activities that they do together, when I have my second baby she is defiantly going to Marcelle i don’t think I would be able to trust anyone else now with my precious babies and I would recommend her to anyone that asked!!

I can’t recommend Marcelle enough!
As first time parents sending your child to someone can be daunting, but Marcelle has made the process an absolute dream! Our little boy has been with Marcelle since 8 months old and has grown and developed so much in that time. He absolutely loves every day spent in the setting and her outdoor ethos is perfect, balancing stimulating play with education.

Anyone looking for a really caring, wonderful and invested childminder please look no further

We were looking for a childminder for before and after school for our son and stumbled upon Marcelle. Whilst we found a nanny share for our son which suited him better we were so impressed with Marcelle that we moved our 14 month old daughter to her setting from a nursery. Marcelle offers term time contracts which suits us as daddy is a teacher. Her outdoor, fun and varied (activities) approach continues to impress us. Our daughter runs to the door and doesn’t want to come home as Marcelle Is so loving and kind toward our daughter. Marcelle really listens to the needs of both the parent and the child and we love getting photos and updates throughout the day of our daughters adventures. We feel very lucky to have found Marcelle and would recommend her highly.

I can’t recommend Marcelle enough. From the moment my daughter spent the day with Marcelle she’s loved every minute and doesn’t want to leave. Her ethos is fantastic with the children especially as they get to spend time outdoors. Marcelle is caring, fun and professional at all times and it’s great to have peace of mind leaving my daughter with someone I trust. We will be enrolling our second child with Marcelle when I return back to work from maternity leave.

Marcelle is a fantastic childminder who I highly recommend. Her philosophy to outdoor play and exploring is helping my son develop and grow in confidence. My son absolutely loves being in the setting and runs in smiling at drop offs. Marcelle is great at communicating and we receive regular updates in the day, telling us how he is getting on. I am so pleased we chose Marcelle and highly recommend her services.
