About Me

Hi, I am an Ofsted registered child minder. I work with my mother, who has been a childminder for 4 years, at her home in Fulwood, Preston. We are both qualified teachers and have experience of working in Early Years Foundation Stage in schools.
We provide a lovely, warm, secure setting, have many resources for all areas of learning and work hard to provide a fun indoor and outdoor learning environment for the children.
We provide healthy, home-cooked food, which we often encourage the children to help prepare.
We regularly take the children to local parks, toddler groups, and sometimes further afield, such as farms and zoos.

Please email us for further information, or to arrange a visit.

I have been using Cookson Childminding since my little girl was 9 months old and she is now 3. She was a very shy child so choosing the right setting for her to feel settled and secure was extremely important and not easy. Since the very first day she has been made to feel very welcome, as have we as her parents - in fact like part of the family. The environment and facilities are fantastic with plenty of space both indoors and out. As Ruth and her mum Fiona are both trained and experienced school teachers the activities they do stimulate her not only socially and emotionally but mentally as well. She really has blossomed under their care and guidance. With my return to work imminent I am fortunate that my little girl and her baby brother will both be going here. I thoroughly recommend to all parents looking for a caring home from home environment for their child.
