My name is Elaine and I have been a Registered Childminder for 23 years. I enjoy working with children . I am married and have 3 children aged 15, 18 and 26. I am registered with the Care Commission and insured through SCMA for Public Liability Insurance, have the appropriate Car Insurance in place to take children to and from Mother/Toddlers, Nursery and School in the appropriate car seats. I provide a safe, secure, clean and fun environment for your child. I have a separate playroom for the children. We regularly go on Outings to the local Parks, Museums, Cinema, Picnics, Theatre and Library. I encourage getting out for fresh air and walking. We make Arts n Crafts relating to the Seasons, different Cultures and any topics that we may be doing (paint, playdough, draw, etc). We make cakes. We have Songtime and Storytime.
I am a mother of 3 children aged 15, 18 and 26. I started off doing voluntary work at the local Mother/Toddlers Group (Treasurer then to Secretary) then moved onto the Playgroup (Treasurer) then on to Playleader.

Elaine took care of my daughter for 6 months until she started a nursery. I couldn't wish for a better childminder. Lena had loved her since day 1. Never cried and every weekend asked if she's coming back to Elaine's. She loved the activities such as arts and crafts, outdoors and BOOKBUG (her favourite). Elaine is always very professional, warm and welcome. Makes you feel as a part of her family. Highly recommend Elaine's first-class service!

Thank you for the lovely review. It was a pleasure getting to know Lena and your family. I will miss her. Ex
Our little girl has absolutely loved being looked after by Elaine - she settled in so quickly as Elaine is very warm, welcoming and always has lots of fun things planned for the children. She is also highly professional so we can't recommend her enough.

Thank you Sana for the review.
It was a pleasure helping to care for Zuha and getting to know her. A lovely child and a lovely family. Glad she enjoyed her time with us, met new friends and loved the different activities we did.
Elaine provided chilcare for my 3 year old daughter and 7 year old son. Elaine is fantastic and provides a great service in all areas of childcare. My daughter loved going with elaine and enjoyed her time there. Elaine provides a fabulous range of activities for the children. Elaine is without a doubt the best and most experienced childcare provider I have personally used.

Thank you for my review. It has been a pleasure helping to care for your children. Miss them both. Keep in touch. Elaine x
Elaine was childminder to my Son Daniel from just over a year old until 6 years old and our daughter Lauryn from the age of 6 months until 3 years of age. Only reason for the kids not still being with Elaine is due to us moving House we were all upset to be leaving especially with the amount of time and effort Elaine puts into every child she has in her care. The kids loved going on a daily basis.
Where do we start on explaining the care Elaine provides from start to finish your really cannot fault her. She has an amazing playroom with a variety of great toys for the children to play with also the kids loved the variety of arts and crafts that Elaine has for them. Every week they came home with something different and seeing your child's face light up to show you what they have made or done today there faces that they are so happy with what they achieved is the best feeling in the world. The amount of time and effort that goes into helping the children learn play read and write is just outstanding exceptional childcare service provided by Elaine.
Even though its not apart of Elaine's job she also attends any nursery/school activities that she can showing not only the child support but also for the parents too for when they are unable to get away from work. Elaine goes out of her way to make sure every child's need is catered for. Snack time in Elaine's is great she offers freshly prepared snacks and lunches on a daily basis and likes to ask the children for there ideas for snack time to make is different everyday.
My kids also went to Elaine's during the summer holidays. She organises so many different fun activities and outings for the kids to go on. You know when its that time of year because the children start asking what are we doing. We feel that Elaine excels herself with the kids at holiday time and the kids all have the best time with her while us parents are stuck at work!!
Elaine has also got all of her children through word of mouth and to me that's what sells her business and the kids themselves will even tell you how much fun they have.
Thank you so much for all your time and effort you put into Daniel and Lauryn they miss coming to you but have so many great memories and friends :).
