About Me

Hi Everyone.. My name is Lisa Barry I am an OFSTED Registered Network Childminder, with 22 years childcare experience

Ofsted graded "Good" in 2016

I work alongside my mother Jean who is my registered assistant. She has many years childcare and childminding experience, and has also worked with me in the past when I was the manager of a Creche in Purley.

Lisa's Little Learners offers a safe, nurturing environment where your child will get the attention and care that he or she needs. Our ratio of children to adults is always within OFSTED guidelines - and often even lower - to make certain each child receives top-quality care.

At Lisa's Little Learners, your child will learn through play and every day experiences such as:

Story Time
Puzzles and Games
Arts and Crafts
Pre-Reading Activities
And much more

Our aim is to have outings every day to various toddler groups, childrens centres, soft play, parks, libarys etc.

You can rest assured that your child will be cared for with kindness, love and respect. Each child will be treated as an individual with their own individual needs met.

We follow the new Early Years Foundation Stage which means you can be confident that your child will receive a quality experience that supports their development and learning.

I have a diploma in childcare and both me and my mother are paediatric first aid trained. I also have completed lots of futher childcare training which is ongoing to keep me up to date within my proffesion.

Our son has been going to Lisa since he turned 1 (he is now 3.5). I viewed a few childminder facilities before he started but felt most comfortable with Lisa. From day one, we have felt confident and reassured that he was well looked after. My son absolutely loves Lisa and also all her family. We feel the children are made to feel part of the family. He is always happy to go in each day and tells me all about his day when I pick him up. Lisa also updates a book each day detailing everything our son does during the day which makes a great keepsake along with all the art he brings home. Lisa does a whole range of activities with the children including numbers, painting, songs, reading and taking them to playgroups. We really feel our son has flourished in Lisa’s care. I think the most important indication of a great childminder is a happy child who loves to go in each day and all the children in her care are always so happy to be there. We would highly recommend Lisa.

Lisa has been looking after my son since he was 6 months old. He is now 2 and a half. I wanted to find someone who would take the time to develop a really strong and secure bond with him, especially as he was only 6 months old when I returned to work. Lisa has done just that, and he is always so happy and excited to spend the day with her. The environment she provides for him is stimulating and secure, and he finds being with her a home from home.
Lisa provides plenty of opportunities for my son to play and develop at his own pace; encouraging him every step of the way. He loves the wide range of toys and resources that are available to him, and Lisa does a great job supporting him as he accesses these. He is growing into a very sociable little boy, who really enjoys engaging with adults and children of all ages. I know that this is down to the opportunities and support that Lisa and her family provide, and I am so happy with how he is developing with her. He also loves Jean, and she is a real asset to Lisa and her childcare provision. It is wonderful to know that my son is given extra support and time by having another person about when there are more children in the house.
Since going to Lisa, my son has developed a medical condition which can result in seizures. Lisa has been fantastic with this change of circumstances. She has been quick to put arrangements in place for any emergency situations. She has also taken the time to research further into my son’s situation, in order to gain more detailed understanding. This dedication and care has been a real comfort to me and my partner. She is a fantastic communicator, and is always very vigilant of any slight changes to my son’s behaviour, which are important in helping us monitor his condition more carefully. She is always so attentive to him, and I never have to worry about him when he is with her. I am so happy to have found a person like Lisa to care for him. He loves his days with her and really flourishes in the environment she provides. Her warm and caring nature has allowed her to create a very close bond with him and he just loves spending time with her and all the family! I can't recommend her highly enough. She is fantastic!

Lisa has cared for both of my sons since 8 months old - they are now 5 and 3 years. Lisa, her assistant mother, Jean and the rest of her family have provided a wonderful, secure and loving environment.. She is a caring professional with very high standards and maintains her child care education and keeps abreast of new developments/trends in her field. My boys have learned much at and enjoyed their 'second home' immensely. Lisa has been a reliable source of knowledge and I have sought her child care advice frequently over the years. Lisa has an open, reliable and practical approach to her role in caring for children. I have a great degree of comfort knowing my children are in Lisa's excellent care when not in mine. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
