About Me

I live in Newton le willows, in a quiet cul-de-sac, very close to local primary schools, local public transport networks, play centres, parks and the library. I am a married mum with two children, a girl who is 10 years old, who attends District School, and a boy aged 8 who also attends District School. I have been in the childcare profession for over 20 years. I was employed as a nanny, on a full time basis, with no breaks between jobs. My last position ended as the children no longer needed care. I wanted to carry on my profession in childcare, so I have set up as an Ofsted registered childminder.

My setting offers a wide variety of indoor toys and equipment, suitable for all ages, my garden is safe and secure and offers extensive play equipment, such slide, play house, sand, water table, trikes, bikes and other small play toys.

My little girl started with Lisa in July after 1st being at a local nursery for a few months. We had lots of issues with the nursery so I was soo glad I found Lisa, she has been a breath of fresh air.
My little girl absolutly loves her, loves going and playing with the other children and I feel very happy to leave her with Lisa.
I get pictures and communication during the day of activities they are doing, and there is always an outting planned.
They do lots of crafts which they get to take home, so its lovely for us as parents to have keepsakes.
Lisa also updates a note book of their daily activities, food, nappies, naps and other information.
I cant recommend Lisa enough

I was worried about my little lady going to a my setting but Lisa made it so easy! Charlotte settled straight away and by the second day was waving her daddy off at the door! Just proves to me what an amazing, caring and home from home atmosphere there is!

Lisa keeps us well informed with Charlotte's time there, we know exactly what she's eaten, slept, how many nappies and what she's played.

It's really helped Charlotte's development going to Lisa's twice a week, she's much more confident towards other children and her speech and language is blossoming beautifully.

The communication is faultless, I know I can message Lisa at any time and she'll respond. She offers advice which is handy for a first time mum.

Recently we've been giving story's and puppets to bring home and share with Charlotte which she has loved so much. It's there extra details that really make an outstanding childminder, she genuinely cares about the children she looks after and I know Charlotte loves being with her. (I'm sure if we could afford it and Charlotte could ask shed want to go everyday!)

It was a big step for us, putting the care of our precious daughter into the hands of somebody else (she had only ever been cared for by us and her nanna and grandad previously). However, any doubts or anxiety we had very quickly settled. Our little girl has been in Lisa's care since June 2017 and since she was 14 months old. We very quickly noticed big changes and developments in her, which we attribute to Lisa's care and development and the fact that she is around other children all day (especially the older ones!).

Lisa spends a lot of time planning activities for the children, as well as days out and healthy meals and snacks. Our daughter comes home every night with a diary of her day and she is generally exhausted after her day of fun with Lisa and her little friends! She has a lovely relationship with Lisa and has taken a particular shine to Lisa's own children too! Lisa constantly keeps us up to date with our little girls development, which we love.

Putting our daughter into Lisa's care is the best decision we could have made. After visiting just 1 nursery, we immediately knew that it was not the right path for our little girl and instead, she has a lovely home from home with Lisa and we can leave her confidently in her care, with peace of mind that she is well cared for and most importantly happy. We cannot recommend Lisa enough!

Our little girl has had a fantastic experience as a part of Lisa's warm and welcoming setting. She was cared for in a way that gave us 100% certainty that we would pick up a happy child at the end of every day.

What makes Lisa such a great childminder is that not only are there well planned, fun activities on a daily basis but there are opportunities for great learning with French and music classes as examples.

Our happiness with Lisa's setting has continued as our daughter still attends during school holidays and sees it as a treat.

My Daughter started going to Lisa in September 2016 she was 10 months old at the time.

Alice settled into Lisa's setting very well and is always happy when we take her and pick her up.
Alice gets very shy when she meets new people but she is very taken to lisa and has been from the start, always has a smile for her.

Alice has come on loads since being with Lisa from crawling to walking to trying to say words.
Lisa does a lot of different activities with the children ranging from arts and crafts, outings and other activities.

I would recommend Lisa as a childminder as she is brilliant.

Thank you for all your support with Alice.
