I’ve been a registered child minder since 1995. In my may years experience I’ve had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of children of all ages; some from as young as 16 weeks!
I place great emphasis on maintaining a high standard of care and providing stimulating, entertaining and educational activities. I offer an excellent range of indoor and outdoor toys that are up to date and in very good condition. As well as caring for children in the home I often visit the local parks, library and play groups.
I drive a Skoda Fabia with the latest, safety standard compliant, car seats and equipment to ensure that your children are adequately protected whilst out and about.
As well as striving to always provide a safe, friendly and caring environment I go to great lengths to work with the parents of the children I care for – working together on the milestones of a young child’s life such as teething, potty training and speech are vital to the welfare of the children.
Having been married for 36 years, bringing up two beautiful children of my own, I understand how important it is that your children get the very best experiences while they’re growing up – offering the children in my care a highly professional, quality service that is both reliable and flexible where the needs of the child are always put first.
Since starting my career as a professional child minder I’ve had the opportunity to build a really diverse portfolio of training, including but not limited to:
• Language & Play Certificate
• Child Protection
• Health & Hygiene
• Certificate in Child Minding Practice (CACHE Level 3)

Below are the latest reviews for Elizabeth Marshall. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
Elizabeth has been in our lives for a little over 6 months, and what a wonderful 6 months that has been.
Elizabeth has been flexible, understanding and accommodating to my fluctuating demands for childcare in reflection of our shift patterns and demanding lifestyle, and is always willing to support our daughter and us in any way she can.
Elizabeth has taken on elements of my role as mother, and has nurtured my daughter through some of her key stages of early years development, from weaning, right through to supporting with behaviour to provide consistency and continuity of care. Elizabeth provides safety and security, with a beautiful mix of love, kindness with a splash of appropriate early years education suitable for our daughter.
Elizabeth creates memories with every given opportunity. There are few days when our daughter is not out in the fresh air, exploring national trust sites, visiting the beach, attending soft play, or just meeting with her friends. Socially she has developed into a very independent confident little girl, and for that we give our utmost thanks.
Elizabeth's communication is exceptional. We receive regular updates throughout the day which provides us with a sense of fulfilment and erases some of the natural guilt experiences by working families, knowing that she is having the most amazing time.
Elizabeth's knowledge of health and safety is faultless. Her environment for care is not only safe and practical, it is full of stimulation and encouragement for our daughter to flourish through the fantastic balance of play and education. Elizabeth is self-sustaining and has appropriate facilities in order to provide care for our daughter, and her range of toys and materials for stimulation, and her research into other practical activities is second to none.
We know, hand on our heart being blessed with the opportunity to have Elizabeth care for our daughter has been one of the best experiences for us. Not only does Elizabeth tick all the boxes on a professional standard, she provides so much love and care, which must make our daughter not only feel safe, secure, happy and content, but most of all, I know she feels loved.
Thank you Elizabeth.

My son has been with Elizabeth now for about 2 years and he loves it, there is never a dull moment if they are not adventuring in the local park then they are playing games or making cards in art and craft sessions.
Elizabeth's house is warm and welcoming with an abundance of toys for all the children to play with.
Elizabeth keeps me updated with plenty of pictures and stories on how my son is getting on during the day.
Elizabeth is a great childminder and I would highly recommend her, my son loves going there and we are very lucky to have found her.
I was so anxious about finding a childminder for my son when I returned to work after my maternity leave, however my anxieties were laid to rest from my first meeting with Elizabeth. From the very first meeting my son and I were both made to feel very welcome in Elizabeth’s home; she supported his transition to her care with a settling in session and reassured me during this, and the first weeks of his session with her by sending me regular text messages and photographs.
My son has loved his days with Elizabeth from the very start, and thrives from the varied activities, toys and day trips Elizabeth provides. He also loves the other children who are looked after by Elizabeth and regularly talks about them at home; Elizabeth promotes positive relationships between the children, and is creative in devising games and activities which are inclusive and engaging for all the children in her care, across a range of ages.
It is clear that Elizabeth puts her heart and soul into her work; she is professional and reliable but most importantly caring. She takes a genuine interest in the children in the care and has shared in my excitement about my son’s development and achievements. Knowing that my son is happy and well cared for is so important to me and I am so grateful that we have found such a fantastic childminder; I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Elizabeth has been nothing short of fantastic since our first meeting. I was looking for care for my 10 month old daughter following maternity leave and am so glad we chose Elizabeth!
Her home is welcoming, safe, clean, and friendly with everything you would want for your child, she provides fun games, crafts and outings along with educational activities that cater to all abilities. She is extremely good at thinking of exciting things for the children which are suitable for all ages, my daughter has learnt so much whilst being with her. Elizabeth spends a lot of time outside with the children, walking whenever possible and keeping them active which is really important to me.
Elizabeth is adaptable and understanding of changes and ensures she is as flexible as she can be which has been such a help to our family.
My daughter has always been so happen Elizabeth's company and enjoys each day she spends with her, I was nervous about leaving her initially as she is my first child but Elizabeth kept in contact throughout the day with updates and photos, my nerves were immediately eased and it was very clear this was going to be the perfect place for my daughter. Elizabeth ensures all children are well behaved and use good manners, this creates a lovely environment for the children and my two year old regularly talks about all of her friends at Elizabeth's house! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone:)
Elizabeth has cared for both of my children who are now 11 and 7. They both love getting picked up from school with the other children.
Elizabeth ensures that she makes the most of the time with trips to the parks in the local area when the weather is nice and an array of games and crafts when it’s not so nice. which the children enjoy very much.
Elizabeth is very caring, reliable and passionate about her job. Elizabeth ensures that each child is nurtured in a way that will help them progress and learn. Myself and my children would highly recommend Elizabeth.
