About Us

Hello! My name is Patricia Fisher and I work along side Garnett Weekes who is also a registered Childminder. We are registered as each others assistants and take equal responsibility for all children in our care.

We both completed a CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce (QCF), in January of 2015.

Our setting is a two to three minute walk from White Hart Lane train station and five minutes walk from Tottenham High Road where you can catch a number of buses (the W3 bus actually goes past our setting).

We offer a safe, fun and stimulating environment for children of all ages, providing them with books, toys, puzzles, games, building blocks, arts and craft etc. We also have a lovely garden where children can play with sand and water, along with other outdoor resources.

While in our care, children are encouraged to learn the alphabet, numbers shapes, colours, days of the week and also about other cultures and the environment (among other learning experiences). We also have story time, dancing, sing along and nursery rhymes.

Tablets are also available for the children to use in order to familiarise them with the latest technology.

Depending on your child's hours, we offer breakfast, lunch and snacks. All meals are prepared in our home and we encourage healthy eating. Fruits and water are offered freely throughout the day.

The children are taken to Children's Centres, Parks and the Library on a regular basis. We also take them on outings to places such as the Zoo, Aquariums, Farms and Museums.

We provide a drop off and pick up service for Lancasterian and St Francis primary schools.

We also work through the school holidays.

As registered Childminders we really enjoy looking after children at this very crucial stage of their development.

I have been with Pat and Garnett for a very long time (7 years) and I love them. First they looked after me and then also my little sister. They make great food and take us fun places. They have a fun garden and they read lots of stories to us. I look forward to see them when my little brother starts going to their house when mummy starts going to work again. They are the best childminders EVER :)
Love from Lily & Ivy

Yes, just as my children have just mentioned Pat and Garnett are the best childminders you can find. I'm so happy that I chose them over 7 years ago. They girls were very upset when I told them that I would be looking after them now that I am on maternity leave, but luckily we live very close to them so the girls still see them often. I hope that there will be a space for my son when I finish my leave cos I can't imagine him not going to Garnett and Pat's like the girls did.
Garnett and Pat are a great team as they are obviously a man and a woman so the children get a bit of mum and dad while being away from home. They are very professional people with great values and I feel my girls have learned a lot from them over the years, with preparing for school, manners and social skills. I can only hope my son will be as lucky.

My son has been with Pat and Garnett since he was 11 months old, he is now 5 years old and i have never been happier with the services they provide. Both Pat and Garnett are very friendly and they treat the children in their setting as their very own which gave me a peace of mind. My son gained his first basic knowledge from them, they take the children to the local library, parks etc. And they have also got a beautiful garden in their backyard which is well equipped with outdoor toys where children play in the summer. I would love for my second born (12 months at the moment) to join this same setting.

Pat and Garnett are the best childminders! They have looked after our daughter for just under 2 years from when she was a small baby. Unfortunately we had to move otherwise she would have continued up until school. They showed such great love and care and our daughter absolutely loves them. She has developed so much in their care and was always so excited to join Garnett and Pat in the mornings. Laila was looked after so well, she was always happy to be around them and so were we to go on with our day without having to worry. Their home is so lovely and very child friendly, they have amazing range of educational toys and books and always have great activities on for the children. We miss them dearly and would be happy to recommend Garnett and Pat to all of our friends and family and anyone else who is in need of great childcare for their children.

My daughter has been with Pat and Garnett for 3 years and they really are like family to her. From the moment I met them I knew they were the right carers.

They provide a genuinely warm and welcoming home, where all the children in their care are always so happy and content. There are plenty of exiting new toys and books for the children, the garden is very well equipped and inviting. They make regular visits to various parks, libraries and other play groups. A good range of food and snacks are served, my daughter always enjoyed her meals there.

Both Pat and Garnett are without a doubt a real find. They are professional, caring and always committed to the children and parents alike, absolutely highly recommend them. Thank you so much for everything!

Pat and Garnett have provided my daughter with a lovely warm and welcoming environment. I felt immediately comfortable in their home and Sofia settled quickly. Though aged 7 when she started, she was new to both the area and to new childminders, but had no issue going and frequently wants to 'stay to the end'.

Whilst we are leaving, as another sibling is due, Sofia has spent a lovely year and a bit (I think) there and we would thoroughly recommend and use Pat and Garnett in the future, should we need to and should they be free.

They both have a calm and happy approach with the children, which clearly rubs off on them and makes the whole atmosphere cheerful and positive. :-)
