About Me

Due to Covid19 and social distancing me and my co-minder are working together some days from her home in Tadworth and separately in our own homes on other days. I am close to Epsom hospital and have some availability.
We are two fun, bubbly and experienced Ofsted registered Childminders, who have been working together since 2014.
One setting is based in Tadworth, Surrey. My friend lives in Tadworth with her husband and her 2 boys who were born in 2011 & 2018. My home is in Epsom with my Partner and daughter who was born in 2008. We both have between 11&15 years Nanny experience of looking after children aged between Newborn and 16 years old. We both decided to join forces and Childmind together, as we feel this would give parents a better piece of mind when leaving their children. We also have experience in dealing with Asthma, nut and dairy allergies, speech and language delays and use Makaton regularly to support children’s language skills. Also have Twin experience.
As parents ourselves we understand that there is a need to be flexible with hours and days, therefore we will try and accommodate these as much as we can.
When caring for children we vary our days by doing activities planned in and outside the home. We love the outdoors and enjoy doing cooking, arts and crafts activities. We both love to see children enjoying themselves, learning and developing through play and organised activities.
We have many glowing references from previous employers before and after having our children. These can all be checked.
We have many local amenities for example; park, children's centre, duck pond etc.
My friend can do school drop offs/pickups at Shawley way Primary in Tadworth and Banstead bunnies Preschool.
I currently do not have any school drop offs or pick ups.
For other references please look at Siobhan on Childcare.
For any further information do not hesitate to contact us.

my daughter has been going to Cassie and Siobhan for 2 1/2 years now and loves it. They were amazing when she first started by putting my mind at ease an helping to settle my daughter in her new environment. I Feel that she has really learnt alot from being with them and surrounded by the other children in a smaller setting. I am very happy with the service they provide and can be safe in the knowledge that she is well looked after.

The guys looked after our 12 month old son Oliver while our other son was undergoing rehab at the Children's Trust. This was a very difficult time for us and the girls were absolutely amazing and Oliver enjoyed every day he was there. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone as they looked after Oliver as their own....

I used SS Childminders whilst my childminder was on holiday. My 4 year old twin boys had a great time, lots of fun activities and outings. A fun, happy, caring environment. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for childcare. Thank you.

Cassie has done several ad hoc babysitting sessions for my 14 month toddler son since he was 9 months old. Each time she has arrived on time, and at the end of the session she always gives me feedback about all details of their time together. On times when my son was unhappy to leave me, Cassie would send me a text when he was fine again, to put my mind at ease. I still use her services and I highly recommend her.
