**Now offering 15hrs free childcare for parents of two and three years olds who meet the criteria**
Hello my name is Louise of Child's Play Childminding Svs. I am an Ofsted registered childminder / babysitter who provides a home from home, high quality childcare service for ages 0-11 years which includes full and half day care, wrap around care and also breakfast and after school club. I live and work with my husband Rob who is also Ofsted registered and our two daughters, Jade who is seventeen years old who is also Ofsted registered and Lily Mae who is eight years old. We are located in a quiet residential area in Litherland, we live in a large semi detached house with a separate play room and very secure large back garden.
We are situated close to Hatton Hill Park and also Rimrose Country Park which is a haven for wildlife, we visit both on a regular basis and both are a firm favourite with our children, the children in our care all love the sense of freedom being outdoors in the natural environment.
Our home is smoke free at all times and I risk assess my home on a regular basis and have numerous policies and procedures in place to aid in safeguarding children's welfare. I am a full member of PACEY (Professional association for Childcare and Early Years)and I am fully insured. I was approved by Ofsted instantly with no actions or recommendations against me and the Ofsted inspector was very impressed with my qualifications, training, skills, knowledge and experience.

I follow all the requirements laid down by Ofsted and these will be discussed with you and you can come and visit my home.
You as parent/s are the fundamental part of your child's life and I will be functioning in a partnership with you to ensure we are constant in caring for your child therefore giving them the greatest possible care whilst meeting your child's individual needs.
I work to the Early Years Foundation Stage Principles and use observations to help me to plan activities for individual children to progress through each stage of development at their own pace. As an Ofsted approved Childminder I am able to provide the Early Learning Care which covers the Early Years Foundation Stage for children aged 0-5 years. I am a member of the Liverpool Childminding Network which meets on a regular basis. This enables me to keep up to date with any Ofsted changes and access any training that is necessary to ensure I provide the best possible opportunities for all the children in my care to progress. Over the past five years I have completed a degree with honors in Education and Professional studies and I have worked in two primary schools and I have built very good, close working relationships with the children's parents/carers. This is very important to ensure we can all work together to help their child achieve to the best of their ability. Each child has their own individual diary as well as a development file. Both are shared with parents/carers.

Lovely, welcoming family offering excellent childcare within their home. Loads of space for kids to play and dance around with a wide range of activities and brilliant outdoor space with fun outdoor toys, games and equipment.
They looked after our little boy before he started school and he made friends there who were starting school at the same time, which was great. Our little girl attends currently and is doing really well. Her social skills have really come along and she enjoys playing with her little friends.
Communication is really good and it’s so nice to see photos from the kids’ time there. If you need flexibility on occasion, the provider will always try to accommodate you and is always happy to answer any questions you may have or to reassure you if you have any concerns.
Both our boys go to Child’s Play and absolutely love it. I wanted them to attend a childminder so that they were looked after in a more informal and homey environment rather than in a nursery and this is definitely what Rob & Louise provide. From the friendly greeting we always get when dropping the children, to their flexibility and wide range of activities provided we could not ask for a better environment for our boys. We drop them off and they run straight in to play, barely even looking back to say goodbye, which is a true testament to how secure they feel. Both boys have progressed and come on leaps and bounds in their development since attending and have formed strong bonds with other children in attendance too!
Very, very happy and could not recommend them more!
Our little boy has been with Louise, Rob and Jade for nearly 2 years now. He has loved going there from the beginning. I was quite worried about sending him at first and thought I would find it really hard as I couldn't even go back to work and leave him with family after my maternity leave. However from our settling in period we found that Ethan really enjoyed being there and was growing in confidence. On his first day there on is own he absolutely loved it. Even though I had been to lots of playgroups and other baby/toddler groups with him we wanted him to have his own space and be able to interact with other adults and children away from us.
After a few months there we noticed Ethan was really confident, loved going and had made good friends. He was really enjoying singing and dancing and loved telling us about his day. He loved Jade especially and everything they did there. We loved that it was a family environment and felt really comfortable visiting their home, also that they were able to venture out to local parks and for walks as our little boy loves being active. We would and have recommended this setting.
Our son Francis has been looked after by Louise, Rob and Jade since he was just turned one. They treat him like he is one of their own and he absolutely loves being with them which is the best possible outcome a nervous parent leaving their child with strangers for the first time.
Francis has formed lovely friendships with the other children who attend especially Louise and Rob's daughter who is a similar age.
Photos of the children's activities are uploaded to a portal for parents to access and see how much fun they are having during the day.
Louise and Rob make lovely home cooked meals for the children and they all eat together.
Francis has come on leaps and bounds since attending and amazes us with some of the things he has been taught.
I wouldn't trust anybody else to look after him. A truly lovely place to send your kids x
My son was with Louise and Bob for about half a year, unfortunately due to the pandemic they closed for a short while so I had to find a replacement childminder. We were upset about leaving Louise and Bob as he had settled in so well and had come on amazingly.
As a first time mum making the decision to put my son in a childminder for me to start work was tough, I didn't want to leave him but Louise and her family really made me feel at ease. We had regular updates and the baby days app was amazing! Photos were updated daily with what he had been up to. They all brought out so much confidence in my baby and taught him so much. I will be forever grateful for the care and compassion they all showed to my son and I. Amazing childminders. 100% would recommend.
