About Me


****Has Availability******

Hi my name is Beckie, I live in Warrington. I live with my three children, twin boys aged sixteen years old and my eleven year old little girl.

I have worked in childcare for the past twenty seven years, working as a Nursery Nurse and working my way upto Nursery Manager. I left after having my third child, as i felt i could provide excellent childcare in a home from home environment, drawing on my knowledge and experiences. It is from this point I decided to set up 'The Playhouse Childcare'.

My sister is also registered as a Childminder and we work together to bring the EYFS to your children in a fun and stimulating way. Although based in two settings we very much work together as a team, planning and implementing ideas between us. We go on various outings together allowing your child to mix with other children and make new friends that they will see on a regular bases. We also visit various 'Tots' groups, parks and play areas.

I have undertaken further visits and inspections from Warrington Borough council and I am accredited and able to offer the two, three and four year old funding.

I am fully registered with Ofsted and i am fully insured with MM and also have public liability insurance.

My Experience

I have worked in various settings over the past twenty seven years. I have worked with children aged from 0-11 years old. I have experience of Autism, Downs Syndrome, Cystic Fybrosis, speech delay/impediment, hearing loss and behaviour issues. I have also worked with children who are from other nationalities and cultures and who have english as their second language.

I have also had a set of twins and i completely understand how difficult two little ones can be however i wouldnt have it any other way!

My Qualifications

I have my NNEB which was a full time, two year course, as well as my HNC Level 5 in Advanced Practice in Working with Children and Families, which was a two year part time course.

I have also gained:
Paediatric First Aid
Food Hygeine
Safeguarding Children
Behaviour Management

There is a full list of courses i have attended, that can be viewed on a visit to 'The playhouse'.

Beckie has been looking after my little boy Alfie since he was 10 months old, she is brilliant with him and he loves going. She is has a caring nature and Alfie warmed to her straight away which made me feel better about leaving him, there is nothing better than going to work knowing that your little boy is going to be well looked after and cared for by someone who is so lovely. She is very reliable and her home is a safe environment for children to be in, it is like a home from home where any child would benefit from her care attention and love.

I would 100% recommend Beckie, she is genuinely a lovely lady with an equally lovely family and any child would benefits from being in her care. We will truly miss her.

My little girl has been with the playhouse since she was 18 months, she starts school in September and is going to miss Beckie so much! They are always out and about, at the park, visiting different places! My little girl is always happy to go in the mornings and never wants to leave, she has told me when she starts school she wants to visit every week! There are children of different ages and my Little girl loves beckies own children! The other bonus of the playhouse is Aunty Hayley (beckies sister) who is also a childminder, they are always doing things together and at each other's houses so there is always loads going on! Beckie is friendly and makes you feel part of the family and treats my little girl like a part of her family, she keeps me informed with everything that's going on and sends out a newsletter which is always a lovely read! My little girl has built a special bond with the playhouse and the family, I never have issues leaving her and know she is safe. I would recommend the playhouse over and over again. I just wish she hadn't grow up so quickly! I will miss the playhouse but I know the playhouse has given her the skills to start school with confidence, friendliness and an understanding of structure. Thank you for they last 2 and half years!!
