About Me

We are two fun, bubbly and experienced Ofsted registered Childminders.

Our setting is based in Epsom Downs/Tadworth, Surrey. I live in Tadworth with my husband and my 2 boys born 2011 and 2018. My friend lives in Epsom with her 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 have 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. 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. My friend loves the outdoors and I especially 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.

We are able to offer 2yr old feet funding and 3&4 year old funding.

I can do school drop offs/pickups at shawley way.

My friend can do drop off and collect from The Greville Primary School in Ashtead at 8:45am and 3:15pm, but would do other school pickups/drop offs if they would fit around her daughters.

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 and 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 really like the fact that they take my daughter out to places so she gets to experience a wide range of different things. I am very happy with the service they provide and can be safe in the knowledge that she is well looked after.

Our son was looked after by Cassie and Siobhan for about 18 months and we couldn't be happier with the care they provided. (He only left as we relocated across the country, otherwise we would have loved for him to stay!)
From our first meeting we felt confident that our son would be safe and happy in their care and we have never had to worry. It's like a home away from home and we felt he was treated like one of the family.
They do so many fun things with the children both at home and outdoors and our son really progressed so well with them.

My children both started to go to Siobhan and Cassie when they were 9 months old! My son is now 4,5y & my daughter is 2y old ! They love every moments what they spend at “ Siobhan’s house”! During those years we build strong relationship with Siobhan and Cassie and for us they are our Second Family! Me and my husband feel comfortable to leave our children at their care! They are professionals, great characters and beautiful people with a BIG heart! I would highly recommend their service to anyone!

My daughter started with Siobhan and Cassie in 2014 when she was 7 years old, she is now 11. Siobhan and Cassie provide a great range of activities, and keep my daughter very entertained when she is with them all day in the school holidays. They arrange a vast variation of activities, from fruit picking to days out in the park and even to the seaside and theme parks. They prepare wholesome home cooked food, I sometimes wish I could stay for dinner! I would have no hesitation in recommending Siobhan and Cassie to anyone requiring childcare. As a single parent I have found them to be very flexible when it comes to my childcare needs and Siobhan even acts as a second contact to receive the text messages that I receive from the school, just in case I forget to remind her. Amazing!!

My 3 year old has been going to Cassie and Siobhan's since he was 18 months old - and loves being there!
They are always taking the kids to playgroups and on fun outings further afield during the holidays. They photograph his activities for his learning log, which they share with us.
At christmas/mother's day/Easter they make lovely gifts with the kids (which we actually want to keep!).
Meals are healthy and freshly prepared.
They have done focused activities to help my son with his speech delay.
On many occasions, I have needed extra childcare or my older son to be collected from school and they have kindly helped. Just yesterday, they checked if I needed the kids picked up, after school unexpectedly closed due to a power cut! It's times like these where I am glad we have such thoughtful and reliable childminders.
