About Me

Hello! My name is Su and I am an Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated childminder who offers the 15 / 30 hours free funding for two, three and four year olds.
I live with my husband in a quiet cul-de-sac next to some amazing woods.
I have 2 adult daughters, one of whom works with me as a registered childminder in her own right.
We love messy play and going out and about!
We sponsor a cat pad at Raystede Animal Rescue Centre.
We offer a home from home with lots of fun and learning opportunities.
I was awarded an 'outstanding' grade at my most recent Ofsted inspection (April 2016)
Please check out my website for lots of information!

My Experience

I am an ex-primary teacher so can offer specialist homework help (we have 2 laptops with internet connection which the pre-school children love, too).
I've been childminding for 18 years and love every minute of it. I also have experience of caring for children with special needs.
I am registered to provide the Early Years Educational Entitlement, which means that if your child is aged 3 or 4, you can get 30 hours free childcare per week. Entitled 2 year olds can also claim.
I also speak French and German.

My Qualifications

Qualified primary teacher
NVQ level 3 Early Years Care and Education
Level 3 Certificate in Early Years Foundation Stage Practice
Paediatric First Aid certificate
Food Hygiene Certificate
Advanced Child Protection

My Availability

One vacancy on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for a pre school child.

Below are the latest reviews for Su Langstaff. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

We have now had our little boy with Su since April 2013 (from 9 months onwards) and we have been nothing but impressed with the care that he receives with her on a daily basis.

Not only are the facilities that she has for the kids great, even with their own bedrooms, Su always provides great notes on the daily activities that they get up to during the day. The activities are varied, always age appropriate and we love seeing photos of what our little man gets up to during the day!

Our little man is so happy to go there everyday and he doesn’t even give us a second look when we drop him off. He has made great friends and has made great progress in all aspects of his learning and development, even at such a young age. I could not recommend Su enough.
