**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.

My 2 girls have both been with Louise since they were both 10 months old. One is about to go to school full time and the other is 2 who goes 1/2 days a week. Both of my girls love going to Louise’s house it’s like there second home. Louise and rob have been more like an aunt and uncle to my girls. They have taught them so much, helped them grow, helped them to share, helped them to draw, the list is endless. My girls have both came on great since being there. They do alkinds of activities both indoors and outdoors an I get an online journal with all food and drink e t they have had and also activities they have done that day. I also get pictures sent too. They have other kids of all ages so there is always plenty of other children to play with. I would 100% recommended Louise at childplay to any parent I was so anxious at first with my first daughter but Louise and rob put me at ease and my daughters both soon settled in. I cannot thank Louise and rob enough.
My daughter has been with Childs Play since she was 10 months old . Childs Play is everything that you can wish for your little one .
They makes a lot of activities with my daughter and that’s it’s fabulous. The food was delicious and healthy. I
My son has been with Louise and Rob since he was 9 months old, he recently turned 2 and I honesty believe sending him here was one of the best decisions I've ever made. In the early days the baby days online diary was a godsend as I could see photos of him playing happily and interacting with the other children before he could really communicate. Now he let's us all know how much he loves it here. He's always happy when he's dropped of and when I arrive to collect him. He spends some time doing focused learning activities each day as well as having the freedom to play with a variety of toys both inside and out. He chats about Rob, Louise and the children he is with and is a very sociable. He enjoys the creative activities provided as well as structured play with toys which are rotated so he never gets bored of playing with the same things.
My daughter has been with Childs Play since she was 1 year old and has been with Rob and Louise for over 2.5 years now. Childs Play is everything that you can wish for from a Childminder. Louise, Rob and their mum offer a true home from home for the children in their care. The children are a full part of family life and having a male role model, who is actively involved in all aspects of child care as well as having a nan, who will sit with the children to tell and listen to their stories, is seldom found in other child care providers. Children of all ages are encouraged to play with each other, which teaches them to interact across different age groups and encourages learning from each other whilst adapting to the abilities of all members of the group. A large outdoor area offers the children plenty of opportunity to be in nature and play outside. Louise has a degree in Education and she plans daily activities that support the social and emotional development of the children, ensuring that they are becoming confident and social children who are ready to interact and learn when starting school. Childs Play are extremely reliable, always giving plenty of notice for their annual leave. I can highly recommend Childs Play to any other parent, who is looking for a caring environment in which their child can have fun and develop.
My 2 younger children started going to Louise and Rob in March 2013, my youngest daughter was just turning 1 at the time and she had never been away from me before. They both soon helped her settle in and she did settle very quickly that really put my mind at rest when I was at work during the day. They give updates at the end of each day along with pictures, this is great a really good way to see how much my little one was enjoying her day.
Their home became like a home from home for my 2, especially my youngest as she attended every day. She looked forward to going every morning.
My children are both in full time school now aged 10 and 4 and they still attend during the holidays, there's is no where else I would go for my childcare.
I would recommend Louise and Rob to anyone.
