Childminder in West Molesey
Female Member since Aug 2011 Last Updated Jan 2022 Last Login 15 May 2022
We have a dedicated play room which is bright, colourful and educational for children of all ages. We have a fab garden, with astroturf and the soft tarmac specially designed for children. We have big toys, a playhouse, slides, balls, hoops and many more garden toys for the children to play with.
We regularly attend childminding toddler groups and soft plays which in general have a bouncy castle, ball pits, ride on toys and outside areas.
We love to do art activities and messy play with the children.
We are located a five minute walk from our local park and toddler group but we do both hold a full driving licence and have seven seater vehicles with age appropriate car seats for when we wish to travel further afield.
We are both familiar with the Early Years Foundation Stage and adhere to all the requirements set out in it. We plan activties for the children with all the areas of development in mind and create profiles for each child to ensure they are exceeding in the different development areas.
I have two children of my own who i love spending time with & doing lots of different activities.
I previously worked in a nursery for 6 years with children aged from 3 months to 5 years.
I have also fostered children so am used to dealing with a wide range of needs.
I have an NVQ Level 2 and 3 in childcare. I also hold a current paediatric first aid certificate and a Safeguarding Children certificate.
Part time availability from February 2022
I also offer term time only childcare

My daughter went to Claire’s for childminding when I returned to full time work, she was 1 year old and stayed until she was 4. She immediately settled in as Claire has a lovely setting and is brilliant with the kids. They go on lots of outings from farm visits to soft plays to art groups so the children really get a chance to experience a bit of everything and my daughter has formed some lovely relationships with both Claire and Sue as well as strong friendships the other children. It’s given her a fantastic start and I’m so grateful to have found such a brilliant childcare setting for my eldest, my only regret is that we moved so I can’t now send my youngest daughter.
For a warm, fun, caring, home from home setting, I can’t recommend Claire highly enough!
If you a looking for truly wonderful care for your child at an affordable price then look no further!
I can't speak highly enough of Claire & Lucy. My son has been with them since September 2011 when he was 12months old and is due to leave them this Christmas as he is off to Pre-School in the New Year. He has been with the girls on both a part time and full time basis over the last two years and they have always been extremely flexible and accommodating.
My son adores Claire and Lucy and he can't wait to see them every week. I hope that he continues to see them regularly despite moving on to Pre-School. It is obvious that the girls love what they do and each and every child they care for is special to them. I am extremely proud that they have had a hand in raising my son - I often wonder if his manners would be nearly as good if he was at home with me full time!
The activities they do are endless and I am a big fan of all the outings they take the kids on, exposing the children to many more environments, experiences and variety than a nursery could provide.
As there are two of them it also means that my son has enjoyed the company of a larger number of children than otherwise would be the case with a childminder, which I think has been highly beneficial and provided him with a large circle of friends.
For the care that they provide I truly believe Claire & Lucy are worth their weight in gold and I will, without hesitation, be signing my second child up next year!
