About Me


My name is Rita. I work with another registered Childminder, who happens to be my husband. We have 3 beautiful young children, ages 9years, 6years and 3years old. We live in Old Sarum, Salisbury.

Children are looked after in a happy and relaxed atmosphere.
There is a dedicated playroom where children can learn and play, although, all other areas of the property are use for childminding. We do daily activities with the children including arts and crafts, gardening, baking, story time, and imaginative play. We also visit Playgroups, Children's Centre, local library on a regular basis

We have many fun and educational resources for children of all ages. There is an enclosed garden available for outdoor play.
Everyday we play and explore the outdoors, this help children in their Physical development and understanding of the world around them. We en devour to incorporate all areas of learning development through the activities and plays that we plan. Children are also able to access and choose their activities with the wide range of resources available in the setting.

Furthermore, we work in partnership with you (parent) to support your child's development. This is achieved by keeping Learning journals and Daily Diaries. Sharing information regarding all aspects of care, this will help to keep you informed about your child's daily activities, achievements, experiences and other vital information you need to know about your child's day whilst in our care.

This is a two way system, where you(Parent) contribute to your child's learning journey and dairy. You can add comments about changes in sleep routine, first word, Potty training, food likes and dislikes or simply anything/experience you would like us know.

We believe that it is a significant way to support children in their learning development, because the daily communication makes you(parent) involved in your child's progress.

We aim to meet the individual needs of each child. Children will enjoy the following:

Learning through play

Nurturing environment

Social interaction

Qualified and dedicated carers

We are both registered on the Early Years Register and on both the voluntary and compulsory parts of the Childcare Register.

Free entitlement spaces available for 2,3 and 4 years old.

Childcare Vouchers also accepted.

Please be our guest.

My son has been going to immaculate tots for about 5 months, He started at 1yo and I was so nervous changing Childminder’s as he is usually so clingy,
After day one rita had bobby so settled and since going he has come on leaps and bounds. He gets so exited when we knock on Rita’s door and is always happy and waves goodbye to me. I love reading his diary about the different activities he has been up to during the day, I couldn’t be happier as my little boy is so happy here. Thank you

Thanks for the positive feedback. It's good to know that you are pleased with our childcare service. Many thanks

Our 1 year old absolutely loves going to Immaculate Tots, he actually squeals with excitement as the door opens! For us, that's enough!! Dropping him off feels as comfortable as leaving him with family. You can tell that every child is loved, it's just that sort of environment. He's been given so many different experiences that we would never have thought to try. We really couldn't have been happier with his care at Immaculate Tots. He's happy, he's healthy and he's developing, definitely at least half thanks to Rita and Longinus!!! Just amazing, thank you!

Thanks for the positive feedback. This means a lot. It's good to know that you are pleased with our childcare service. Much appreciated.

My 2 1/2 year old twins love coming to Rita and her family for 3 whole days a week, they ask every morning, 'Rita's today?'
I was very nervous leaving them to go back to work, but this was made better with the reassurance from Rita, she sent me texts/photos through the day, daily diaries and feedback after each session. Always sounds like they've had lots of fun throughout their day.
I would definitely recommend immaculate tots :)

My four-year-old has been cared for by Rita and Longinus since last summer and we have nothing but praise for their service. They're flexible, understanding when things don't go to plan, and overall a very warm-hearted couple who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others..

Thanks for the positive review. Much appreciated.

Rita and her family are 100% dedicated to the children they care for. Our son Rory loved his time with them, we even had trouble making him leave at the end of the day as he would become very upset as he wanted to stay longer. Rita is highly qualified and puts a lot of effort in to ensuring the children take part in activities beneficial for there development.
