We are Mel and Kelly, we decided to become childminders together and set up from Kelly’s own home on the popular Ravenswood estate in a 3 storey house. We care for children on the ground floor, which comprises of toilet/cloakroom, playroom, large kitchen diner and easy access to a safe enclosed garden. We have a sleep room on the first floor of the property. We both hold NVQ level 3 certificates, first aid and safeguarding children. Mel has 18 years experience and Kelly 5years. Kelly has 3 children of her own aged between 5 and 18 years. Our aim is to ensure that children who come into our care have fun, feel valued, enjoy their time with us and develop their learning in a relaxed homely atmosphere. We follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), recording all observations and pictures in your child’s Learning journey. We provide for children aged 3 months to 8 years of age. We aim to build a good relationship with parents as much as the children in our care. We also ensure children have as much fresh air as possible, with free flow through the house to the garden and outings to the local shops, park and our local library. We also collect from Ravenswood School. All our meals are prepared daily to ensure your child maintains a health balanced diet.
