I was a Registered Childminder for 12 years and have 5 children aged between 10 and 23 of my own. I also have a very friendly dog called Buttons, and two cats Jessie and Toby.
My childcare business moved into premises in February 2016 from home as we had outgrown the house.
We now employ 9 assistants.
We have two large playrooms, which are set out for immense learning possibilities from the very young, to preschool/school age children. We have baby facilities catering for younger babies.
We have sleeping and changing facilities for all ages of babies and young children. We also have child sized toilets encouraging independence and cubicles for their privacy.
Room One is for babies and toddlers, where activities are at low level or floor level. We also have a soft play area and a stimulating baby area including black and white objects which help babies to focus and encourage brain activity.
Room Two is our preschool room where more structured learning takes place for our 2 1/2 to 3+ age children. This room is also used for the after school children, where there is a selection of games, craft activities, homework table, construction, including Lego, home corner as well as books to read or learn from.
The premises are secure with 2m high fencing around the perimeter. There is a large range of resources available outdoors, which stimulate and challenge the children of different ages and development. We have an outdoor classroom for use all year round in the form of a dome tent which the children love.
We have lawned areas to two sides of the building of which part is now Astro carpeted for the younger children and a Tarmac driveway to the third.
Parents are encouraged to use the car park for safety when dropping off and collecting their children.
We are registered and approved with Derbyshire Local Authority to provide funded places for all 3-4 year olds for their free 15 hours Early Education place before attending full time school. We can also offer the extended 30 hours childcare with a valid eligibility code.
The setting will be open from 6.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday and open Saturday by prior appointment.

ACE have been absolutely fantastic from day one for my little boy. I had no choice but to contact them last minute as the childcare we had arranged for our 10 month old son was terrible and I was so upset with how he was being treated that I couldn’t bare to go to back to work and leave him there any longer. So I contacted ACE and they didn’t hesitate to welcome him into their care. They Invited me in for a viewing on the same day and he was there the next morning! They have been brilliant with him understanding his needs, ensuring he is fed well, entertained and just happy in himself at all times. They don’t mind me texting them to ask how he is while I’m at work and complete a daily diary for me to read every evening that just confirms how brilliant they have been with him. Haven’t got a bad word to say about them. FANTASTIC! ❤️
