General Details


Thank you for looking at our profile, We are Stuart and Ann a married couple who will be joining forces and working as a team again. in the new year. we are  based at Brampton 5 miles outside of beccles just off the A145 that heads towards Ipswich.I have been childminding for 18 years, and stuart is proud to be qualified to level 6 having my BA in Early Years and am working towards my BA honours.

Stuart is also very proud to be one of the few male childminders in suffolk that had worked independently, as well as being the first childminder in suffolk to offer a place to a disabled child and was honoured to take part in the newspaper article surrounding this.
Being male, I was often sort out by single mums looking for a positive role model for their children, and I work at all times with all parents to provide the best care for their children.

The last OFsted inspector stated

"Parents speak highly of the childminder. They say the has a 'wonderful way' with
children and is very supportive. They appreciate his advice around child development
and seek this when required."

The inspector also state that:

"The childminder notices any areas where children are
working below age-expected milestones and helps them to catch up with their peers. He
shows a detailed understanding of his role in supporting children who have special
educational needs and/or disabilities. The childminder is proactive in helping children and
their parents to obtain professional support and advice, when required."

Ann is back this year part time supporting Stuart as a childminding assistant when he needs the extra help at busy times because we are expecting Little Monsters to become very busy when the threat of the coronavirus eventually allows you the parents to have the confidence to send the children back into childminding settings again. we really do understand your reluctance to send your children at this difficult time.

Having said that Little Monsters is safe right now it has almost cut itself off from other schools and nurseries at this time to protect the Little children that come here. a recent test has shown us to be clear at this time.

We are early years educator and people often wonder what that means:

What that means is that i provide the education that very young children need

In children aged one and under, it means encouraging those children to crawling and walking and to give these very small children the self confidence to begin to do things on their own.

In children under two years old the education is about having the confidence in making friends, and learning to understand yout emotions when you have some words but not always all the words you need to explain yourself and becoming frustrated and throw yourself on the floor or stamp your feet commonly known as the terrible twos. It is my job to help them understand I am on their side and they need to understand that its okay to ask for a little help with things they wish to do by themselves until they can.

Then for the older children 3 and 4 year olds its about potty training, riding bikes. learning letters numbers and colours in much more detail and becoming school ready.

I Also recognise that not all children are the same, thats why I am a fully qualified SENDco which means if you are lucky enough to have a child that needs extra help, I have the skills to help both you and your child with this too...... helping parents to better understand their child's needs.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic I have been supplying chidcare to Key Workers and to my knowledge there has been no cases of the disease in my setting. Lateral Flow testing is now done routinely twice weekly to ensure it remains that way.

As part of my response to the pandemic and my efforts to stop it reaching us at Little Monsters I have cut school runs to a bear minimum having as little contact with the school as is possible to protect the little children in my setting and their parents. All regularly touched surfaces are wiped down often and toys washed at the end of every day.

Children are also encouraged to wash their hands regularly as do I, but face masks are not worn unless we have visitors such as potential new clients adults are then expected to wear masks inside. and to wash their hands at a bathroom sink before venturing into the house.

I am always willing to answer any questions you may have about my service so please do ask there is no such thing as a silly question, if you need to know then please ask away

plenty of places to park
There is one bus stop in Brampton and the train station is 2.5 miles down the road
Restrictions to access
access to the property as you would expect is restricted to customers only.

 My childminding setting consists of the entire downstairs of my home, the toys supplied each day depend on the needs of the children which will always depend on their individual interests. The outside area is a large lawn area full of slides, ride on toys a sand pit, and a variety of other toys, too numerous to mention here. And upstairs there is a room that is solely used for sleep time

I am fully sendco trained and do not shy away from a child in the way that many other settings may do because the child appears to be finding life harder than other children their age. I instead help us both understand the difficulties your child faces and am happy to involve anyone who can help your child understand the world.

So what can Little Monsters offer children with Special Educational Needs?

Little Monsters is welcoming to all, Stuart George the childminder at Little Monsters believes that the Personal, Social and Emotional wellbeing of children is crucial for allowing children to overcome barriers to learning new things.

How does Little Monsters know how to help your child?

·         Stuart would use information from previous settings (including the settings key worker)

·         Stuart would use Information gathered from outside agencies( e.g speech therapy) if there are any

·         Stuart would use information provided by you as the child’s dedicated carers

Within Little Monsters

·         Stuart would consult you before making any changes, to ensure he is doing right.

Who will write my child’s Individual Educational Plan I.E.P

Stuart is a fully qualified SENDco and will write the I.E.P for you and it will be something you will have to agree with Stuart before it can be implemented, it will also be explained to the child where possible.


What should I do if I think my child has a Special Need?

Speak to Stuart straight away, he may of noticed something too, but may not feel it important at this stage in your child’s development, working together is the key to success SEN or not.

How will the activities be matched to my child’s abilities?

Stuart is used to adapting the activities he does so that everyone can understand and succeed at them, and because Stuart is a sole childminder working alone the number of children is small no more than 3 at a time this task is achieved with relative ease.

How will you help me help my child’s learning?

Every child’s I.E.P is shared with parents and their consent sort before its implementation, and you will be constantly advised of the activities taking place each day, talking to Stuart George about how to assist your child with particular activities if you are unsure would be the best way.

How do I know how much progress my child is making?

Stuart George uses an online EYFS learning journeys on a system called Baby days on which you can check your child’s progress 24/7. Photographs of your child and observations for them are uploaded on a regular basis for you to see and comment on. It is also possible for parents and carers to upload photos and observations of their own to help ensure a full picture. Your child’s I.E.P is reviewed every half term by Stuart and your input is always asked for because it is invaluable.

What support will there be for my child’s overall well-being?

TAC and CIN meeting will be held when they are required.

Health care plans and medical needs catered for

Every activity will be achievable for your child which will boost his confidence giving your child a “have a go “attitude.

Stuart is always available to discuss your concerns

He Is doing a Foundation Degree in Early Years designed to help him have a better understanding of young children throughout the world

How will Little Monsters help prepare my child for school?

We would put all the information together in a transition passport for the school, and hold a school liaison meeting which would involve as many specialists as required to help the transition become as smooth as possible, and all special needs information would be transferred to the SENDco team within the school

Excellency in Childcare
Mr Stuart George has looked after my beautiful little daughter since she was 9 months old. I couldn't have asked for a nicer, more genuine and caring Childminder. Looking after and nurturing children isn't just an idea that this man plucked from his brain and thought, 'hmmm that might be a good career' no, it is his calling. He is exceptionally gifted, all the children love him and he genuinely loves to see these young people develop and grow and blossom into the new generation. He has also looked after my wife's two children previously and they are performing really well. Having your children with stuart will set them up brilliantly. he will help them to have a great start in life and they will be ahead for when they start education. He is safe, responsible, reliable, exceptional, just can't praise this man enough. He cares and it comes across, see for yourself, you'll be glad you did. Joshua Gray-Read
