Hi my name is Celia i co-mind with Katie . We are Ofsted registered our setting has been rated OUTSTANDING for the second time running .
We are very well placed being close to most of the Malvern schools / nurseries.
A little bit about me:
I took up childminding as I found it very difficult to find flexible professional childcare that was able to cover the busy work schedules that I had.
With this in mind I took up Childminding and now adopt a very flexible approach covering early starts and late finishes.
As a setting we offer weekend cover for parents working shifts and also perhaps when you may need that all important evening or weekend away.
We adopt a one to one approach to childcare and balance out fun and learning throughout the day, set within a very spacious property with large dedicated conservatory for those too often rainy days, large safe garden and lawn with swings / climbing frame etc. In fact I would strongly recommend a visit to see what a wonderful setting your child could enjoy.
Prior to childminding I was teaching French to children at Schools within the county. As languages are so important and are being taught at a very early age I have continued teaching the basics to children in my care.
I have two children of my own that are now in secondary school and a lot of my own childminding experience has been gained initially through the eyes as a parent, you will see below that we understand the importance of personal development / training which we and the children from.
I currently speak English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

My daughter has loved every second of being here. Every day they would love her and nuture her. I felt so comfortable with leaving her. They were literally fantastic in lockdown and cant even put into words how flexible they have been around shifts. They are truly amazing x
My daughter has been with Celia and her wonderful team since she was 14 months old up until she was 3 years and 2 months old. Initially we had to move childminders at short notice and Celia was extremely helpful at fitting us in with the exact hours and days that were required. Our daughter (who we were very worried about moving) was reluctant to leave me in the mornings for the first few weeks, but Celia was brilliant with her and she soon settled in well and was happy to be dropped off in the mornings.
At Celia's the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and our daughter felt comfortable and at home with Celia and the other ladies. If she was feeling tired or not 100% then they would accommodate her with lots of cuddles and stories. Celia offers a wide range of activities for the children to be involved in and she provides daily updates - including photos - to discuss your child's progress. The setting is of a good size and allowed our daughter to have the opportunity to make friends whilst not being crowded out like she may have been in a nursery setting.
We were very sad to have to leave Celia and the other ladies due to a move to a pre-school in another location, and our daughter still talks about how she misses them all! I can't recommend Celia enough and we thank her for all she did for our little girl. x
Celia and the team are fantastic. A nice size setting offering a home environment where children mix with different age groups. They do lots of activities both at the setting and on days out and my son loves being there. He’s always pleased to go in 😊 Lots of regular updates and pictures of activities which is lovely to see. Celia is always very accommodating of changes when needed due to changing work schedules.
My son has been at Celias for 3 years and it going for his last day today as he is starting school next week. He has loved his time there and it will sad to see the chapter close. I knew as soon as I visited Celias for the first time that I wanted Raff to attend here and I was so thankful when he got offered a place; It has been the perfect few years for him in the lead up to school and I would recommend Celia’s to anyone! All the children seem so happy, the setting is wonderful and the all the staff are friendly, helpful & caring. What more could you ask for. 😊
My little boy has been going to Celia's for the past 5 years and he thinks of Celia and the team as a second home. He thrived from the minute he started going and over the years he has enjoyed meeting lots of children of all ages and taking part in lots on fun activities and trips. Celia has always been incredibly flexible and extremely reliable and her home is immaculate!
