I follow the early years foundation stage framework. Each child has an online learning journal which contains observations around the 6 areas of learning, photo evidence and feedback from the parents, which is confidential to the parents of each child. I provide age appropriate resources. I provide basic home cooked food, ensuring food is fresh and healthy.

Fantastic Child Care!
I’ve known Mandie for nearly 5 years now and she has been a fantastic influence in our lives. I look after two siblings with an age difference of 5 years. Both have had a difficult start in life, resulting in very challenging behaviours. Mandie’s calm, compassionate professionalism made all the difference. There are almost daily outings, ensuring her charges enjoy fresh air and exercise regularly. Whenever we see Mandie, both children greet her with open arms and a great sense of joy. Nobody could be better at looking after my family – and the food’s delicious!!
Thank you for as long as I am around I will always have time for you and your family xx Thank you for your kind words xx
