Hello, my name is Clare Maxlow and I am a OFSTED Registered Childminder and live in Bridgefield, Park Farm.

I am an experienced Childminder with two children of my own who are at primary school. I have worked with early years children since 2012.

I provide a safe and happy place for children, where they can learn, grow and have fun! It is a place where parents know that they can safely leave their children and know that their child's well being is paramount.

Activities I offer at home include age appropriate guided and free play, arts and crafts including painting and other messy play, water play, cookery and story times..

I am able to offer funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year old children.

Thanks for reading.

Clare looks after my 1 year old daughter 4 days a week. At first I was worried about leaving my little girl but Clare made me feel very reassured. I especially enjoy receiving daily updates, photos and a breakdown of exactly what my daughter has done, including details of what she has eaten, when she slept, had her nappy changed etc... I find this very useful. I am very pleased with the care my daughter receives and the outings and activities Clare does with her. My daughter can't wait to get to Clare's in the morning and becomes very excited when we knock at the door. I would thoroughly recommend Clare to anyone looking for child care.

Thank you Hayley for your review ?

Communication was great, my daughter isn't the easiest of children to deal with (stubborn, imaginative, and a bit of a temper) but I felt that Clare really handled her well. There were regular outdoor activities which was great and I never had a problem getting my child to go there in the mornings. I felt Clare did a great job encouraging my daughters independence.

Thank you smoozy for your review

My son has been with Clare for 2 years and he absolutely loved her care. She is very professional, caring and flexible. She is very good with communication and her setting is neat and clean. She engages the kids in lots of activities and takes them on regular outings giving them good exposure. Would highly recommend her services

Thank you Srilatha for your review

Clare has been looking after my little girl for around a year now. I was worried about leaving my lo at first but Clare kept me updated and in the loop at all times. My little girl enjoys spending time with Clare and her family and is always happy when I collect her. Clare is kind, professional, understanding but firm when needed. She listens to your concerns and works with you on areas you may think your little one struggles with. If your looking for a childminder I recommend Clare maxlow. Thanks for reading :-)
