About Me

hi my name is Steph i am a qualified OFSTED registered childminder. i enjoy working with children and within my warm gentle loving setting i help children develop and grow through fun play activities outing and trips.

I offer funded placement for 2+ and 3/4 year olds this could be for the statutory 15hrs and extended 30.

We do have family dogs who are lovely, playful, and would never harm anyone my own children love rolling round the floor with them.

I drive a seven seater car with car seats to suit all ages and have full business insurance, my license is completely clean.

We have a large back garden with role play Wendy house, sand and water play, I also have lots of other garden toys for children to play with.

I have an excellent relationship with all the families I work for and work closely with them to help children learn and grow in the best way for them. I can get reference if required off parents I work for or have reviews on here you can look at

I currently have spaces free and would love to meet your child so get in touch if you are after a friendly childminder that puts the needs of every individual child first.

My Experience

I am a registered childminder with lots of experience with all ages as I have full time children and do school runs so work with all ages. I also have two of my own and have always been there to support and help out family members with their children.

My Qualifications

Level 3 childcare
BETC Food and Hospitality level 3

My Availability

i work flexible hours so can discuss what hours you need covering and hopefully i can help you with your childcare needs i can discuss taking care of a child outside the listed availability so please don't hesitate to ask me if i can help with any other hours.
i can sometimes offer a babysitter service but this will depend on the children i already have with me on that day as i may be a my ratio limit. I must also have met the child before the first time I baby sit as it's not fair on the child to be left with someone they have never met, so u would need to come meet me before the day the baby sitting is required

Steph has been nothing but amazing, we moved our child to Stephs after moving house, we were apprehensive but it was the right descion. From the first time that we went to meet Steph she was friendly, open and welcoming. We were able to see all forms of documentation and policies and no question was silly.
Our son's settling in sessions were fantastic and flexible, allowing him to take the lead on what he needed as he does have separation anxiety. This is something that Steph is fantastic at handling and she will reassure us every morning with just a little message that's hes settled. This is a huge comfort to us as parents.
We also get pictures throughout the day of activities hes completing too, this enables us to see hes settled and happy which is our peace of mind and a nice touch.
Stephs setting is very much home from home, which is just perfect for us. I feel that our son gets an equal balance of experiences. He has trips out, mixing with other children, learning time and also the home environment. Stephs observations of our son that she feeds back to us is a perfect reflection of him at home, this is obvious that she spends time to get to know the children individually in her care.
Thank you so much Steph, were so glad we found you!

Steph is like a second mom to our little boy, her setting is his home away from home and he loves attending there doing multiple activities on each day, always comming out with smiles on his face,and plenty of stories to tell. The swapping of days and flexibility of steph is second to none she is so accommodating, I cant recommended this setting enough, if your after a loving home with care and attention to detail and all your child's need covered, then look no further Bumblebees day care, this is the place for your little one. THANK YOU STEPH !

My little one started with Steph beginning of January at 9 months old when I returned to work, I was so nervous leaving my baby boy at such a young.
Steph is such a lovely person and my little one is always full of smiles when I pick him up. He has settle really well and I know I made right decision choosing Steph over a nursery setting :) she is so kind and caring, I get regular texts and pictures when Little one is with her. Her home is very safe for children :) one of the best !

We brought our sensitive, high-spirited 5-year-old daughter to Steph's under unusual circumstances. We just needed a few days here and there for a short period of time when we were visiting the area for difficult, personal circumstances. She was incredibly generous with our sometimes last-minute and ever-changing needs, and more importantly my daughter adored her and her home! (Honestly, she complained if we picked her up early.) The adorable crafts project she did for Valentine's Day was the icing on the cake. :) I highly recommend Steph!!

After going back to work when my lo was 9months old I was extremely nervous. Steph has been amazing and my lo absoulty loves going there. She has help with his development as well as his social skills. Steph is very flexible and very accommodating. She is always taking them to do things or doing activities in the house. Steph will text and communicate whilst my lo is there if I'm worried about leaving him. She has been fantastic
