About Me



Thank you for viewing Step by Step Childcare's profile. Based in rowley regis just off oldbury road. I am Leeanne, an Ofsted registered and level 3 qualified childminder. I am fully insured and DBS checked childminder with a full UK driving licence and business insurance. I have 2 lovely sons and a lovely step son. I have been working within the childcare sector since 2005.Experience of working in day nurseries, government funded nurseries, primary schools up to age 11, youth clubs to age 13 years. My most recent job was working with and supporting parents of children under 5 within a Children's Centre but i decided to start childminding to provide a happy, fun, caring, stimulating safe environment for children where parents feel confident and happy to leave their child. I work closely with parents to provide the best for the children to ensure they get the best possible start in life and achieve as many milestones as possible in their development :) i also have a level 3 qualified DBS checked assistant who works with me which provides more child focused care for the children and more attention for them (we only work with a max of 6 children under 5 at a time) and also a level 2 qualified assistant to assist with school runs and after school club.

I follow the EYFS framework and supporting your child with their development and other individual needs. I provide daily information about your child's day, monthly newsletters, and also termly parents evenings to discuss your child's development and share with you your child's learning journey with all their observations, individual planning and photos of them.

I love step by step, the staff are excellent, and experienced, the setting is just amazing, think nursery meets home, it has everything you could want from a child-minder, daily reports on what my son has been doing all day and photos if he's done something amazing too, I can no fault it, my son had learned and done so much in such a short space of time from going there, and most importantly he loves it there too!

My little boy has been attending step by step child minding part time for about 8weeks. I am very pleased with the care given also pleased with the activities he gets todo. His development since attending step by step child minding has come on leaps and bounds, he enjoys going and some days doesn't want to come home.. Would definitely recommend.
