About Me

We are a Mother and Daughter childminding setting caring for children from 3 months to 8 years. We believe that children learn more through play experiences such as fun games and activities. Aside from activities in our home and garden we also visit local places such as parks, the library and toddler groups. We believe that all of our work as childminders should be child centred so that we can put their needs and interests first. In our setting we enjoy doing arts and crafts, cooking and outdoor games.

Every child in our care will be welcomed into our home from home setting and provided with homemade and nutritious meals from a Nut and Egg free environment.

We do our school pick ups from Alderton primary school and Thomas Willingale school and nursery.

My little
One started with nessa and Olivia and he has loved every day, such a welcoming environment. The kindness and care given to him every day is amazing. He constantly talks about them and wanting to go every morning. They always keep him busy with games and activities which he loves. They also keep us updated with photos and videos throughout the days which is lovely and makes us feel at ease with him in their care :) could not recommend enough the best people around !

Maia My 2 years and 7 months is going to Vanessa and Olivia, she is very happy to go (playing ,having all kinds of different activities) They take Maia to swimming and tumbling and that is brilliant for me because I don’t have time to take her but I want her to go!
